Home Automation setup

This is my take on the setup for Home Automation.

Hardware

  • Raspberry PI 3
  • 16GB micro SD card (smaller one would be OK, but this was the only one I had lying around).
  • Z-Wave.Me USB Stick

Software

  • Raspbian
  • Home Assistant

Stuff that I use my home automation to control.

  • Hue light bulps
  • Turning TV on and off
  • My Denon Surround Receiver
  • ChromeCast and ChromeCast Audio devices
  • Outdoor christmas light

The Raspberry PI 3 is located in a cabinet centrally in the house. Right now it connects to the network through WIFI. In case of unexpected reboot (power loss etc.) Home Assistant automatically starts.
