I have a full #MQTT system so I wonder if it’s just better to route them through that. I’d want all the power metrics still, and be able to use those in the hass energy dashboard. Would also need control over the socket power itself.
Watching a clip from the BBC's Tomorrow's World program from 1989 where they predict what the home would look like in 2020.
Watching it and thinking how many features they predicted actually do exist now especially with #homeAssistant etc.
Although one showing a thin screen from 1989 and he says screens 1m in size are being planned & in 2023 I'm watching that clip on a screen that actually is 1m wide
Just ported my Geiger Counter code over to the weather station project, some code cleanup but it's now reporting in real time rather than once every 10 seconds like the old one.
Here it's running nicely on the #raspberryPi 5B
This is my second Geiger counter that I have, the other one of the same model has been running on a PI4 for several years now which monitors the inside of the house.
This one will be installed outside for comparison.
Next to get the station to report to #homeAssistant
Work in progress from the weekend.
The graph shows the carbon forecast being used to charge the house battery in the lowest carbon periods overnight. Dark grey off-peak; light grey is when the battery was commanded to charge. CO2 savings are around 90% compared to the forecast peak at 17:00.
The dashboard is intended to quickly signal whether the battery will last until off-peak, and the effect of running various kitchen appliances.
This is one of the many reasons why I love running Home Assistant with open-source firmware on my devices. Not only do I *get* security updates, but there are regular code audits as well. I ended up subscribing to Nabu Casa's cloud service - it is inexpensive for what you get, works well, and helps support Home Assistant's development.
I am after some #HomeAssistant help. I have made this Dashboard. I want the card on the right with the Agile prices to be independent of the first two columns. I have made this a grid Dashboard. I don't want the 3rd column to interfere with the first two columns. I hope that makes sense.
Apparently they weren't making enough money by selling bulbs at $50/70 each. They'll now force you to log in through their app to the bridge too, or all of your bulbs will just stop working.
What this means, among the other things, is that tons of unofficial integrations that have been built over the years (phue being one of them, which I contributed to in the past, and is also used by Platypush to interact with Hue bridges) are also likely to stop working once you upgrade your bridge's firmware. Those integrations leverage the old push-the-pairing-button mechanism to pair with the client, but now in-app authentication through a registered account seems to be a requirement - and I definitely have better things to do with my time than reverse engineer again their shitty authentication flow and push a PR to phue.
Philips Hue (sorry, Signify B.V.; Philips has actually given up on building anything, they're just waiting for everybody who works there to retire) has joined the long wagon of companies that have realized that scooping up as much data as they can from their users (that probably includes at what time you usually wake up and go to sleep, from your bedroom lights patterns, or how often you go to the toilet) and selling it to data brokers provides a much steadier revenue stream than selling actual products that people want (even if those products are already quite pricey). And they don't care if fullfilling their new missions of being a mere data collector rather than a tech company means to literally break overnight the lights in the houses of millions of customers.
Of course, I was kind of prepared for this. I have #Platypush installed on a RPi with a Zigbee dongle and zigbee2mqtt, and it already does the job for a bunch of Hue, Ikea and other cheap Zigbee lights. That's all you need to make your own Zigbee bridge. #HomeAssistant and #OpenHAB are other popular options.
But it'll still take me a while to unpair a few tens of Hue devices in my house that are still connected to my Hue bridge (which I purchased a decade ago btw), and reconfigure tens of groups, scenes and automation routines on my self-managed bridge instead.
I used to love being a software engineer, building things and solving problems. Now being an engineer sucks, even as a hobby, and I don't feel anymore like this is what I want to do with my life.
It's not up to me to decide what to build anymore. It's up to Spotify killing their streaming libraries, Twitter or Reddit killing their API, Hue breaking their products if you don't log in through their app, YouTube coming up with ways to break youtube-dl on a daily basis, Google breaking your browser extensions, Red Hat and Docker turning suddenly hostile towards the FOSS community that made their fortunes, Messenger periodically logging out your alternative clients and locking your account, an increasing number of companies who insult the large community of unpaid volunteers that builds against their ecosystems as "free-riders" and make it their business mission to break their implementations, and the list could go on forever.
I'm no longer working with ecosystems built by companies who genuinely want to build good things that people want to use, who treat the community of developers around them as an asset rather than a liability, and even sport "don't be evil" among their core values. I'm working in an industry that continuously takes hostile stances against the FOSS community, unofficial clients, and anything that doesn't fit neatly into the quarterly vision for profitability outlined in the PowerPoint deck of a sociopath product manager with no tech background, and who couldn't care less if they are selling IoT devices or bricks. And I have to dodge these attacks on a daily basis, one line of code at the time, for the hundreds of integrations available in the projects I maintain or contribute to, just to keep things working without losing features overnight.
I wake up the morning thinking "how will tech companies decide to fuck me up today just to get one more byte about me to sell to data brokers, and which activities will I be forced to put aside in order to write some code that fixes the UX-breaking shitshow that one of their greedy managers has decided to put up today in an effort to beef up their quarterly bonus with a +1% uptick in revenue?"
Congratulations, motherfuckers. Your broken business models have broken tech for everyone.

For over a decade Philips Hue offered lights that work without sharing your data to the cloud. This is changing soon and we need your help to make some noise to convince them to revert this decision.

Managed to update my "scrape local council bin day web page" Node-RED flow so that
the bin day is "Today"
I have scanned an RFID sticker to say that bin has been emptied already
extract the next bin date and colour, and send that to my ulanzi pixelclock.
No excuse for missing "bins which are collected the day after another bin" anymore 😉
this is post 066 of #100DaysToOffload.
Tengo varios proyectos que quería Empezar y otros por rematar durante mis días de descanso entre semana.
El primero ya os lo conté que fue cambiar mi antiguo Wemo por un Shelly y luego le ha tocado domotizar el porterillo.
Ambos con resultado 100% satisfactorio
Animaros si alguien lo ha pensado alguna vez porque es muy Fácil y practico.
#Domótica #Shelly #HomeAssistant
Ahora queda lo más importante #ProxMox 😅
Una pasada la sencillez en la instalación y todos los datos que vuelca en HomeAssistant.
Ahora a esperar unos días para ver cómo se comporta realmente y seguir avanzando.
Como diría Sahuquillo….
Ojalá hubiera conocido antes los #Shelly
To give you a sense of what he has been up to -- these are two screenshots of his #homeassistant #raspberrypi setup!
Crazy wild stuff! He configured and built much of this himself - including the hardware.
I'm a 23yo #SoftwareDeveloper with my own #foss app on the playstore. Daily Driver on PC and #Steamdeck currently #Arch / #steamos.
Favourite games are #csgo #rocketleague #osu #timerborn #forza5 #msfs and #trainsimworld2.
Love tinkering with stuff, running my own #server @ home with #gitlab #homeassistant #nextcloud and more.
Feel free to just ask stuff 😀 #introduction
