“Techie nerd” does not equal “engineer.” Or “electrician.” Just sayin’…
Can you share some pics of the project? Sounds interesting.
As soon as I find a unit that will fit a non commercial door jamb. That is going to be the problem.
Hey Jason! Just wanted to swing back here. Want to send me a message off-forum? I can explain a little more what I’m interested in.
I think I’m done. The only automation left to improve upon is the yard irrigation, and that does not need to connect to the other automations.
Maybe in the future I’ll get a lawn robot. But. Not soon.
I got one for $50, brand new.
What has you not using it?
Keep saying I’m going to get the yard in order…Bought it because of this forum and I thought hey great deal!
For those that want to read the article written by Andrew Zaleski:
I never really thought of the uses of home automation for someone who needs help with certain things. I think its great.
I’m not sure I made it to you on time but: If shes getting annoyed and shes only your fiancee…get rid of her now!!!
Ah yes, a common sentiment that you’ll find throughout many threads here. Unless you live alone, we all have to deal with that significant other factor. Although sometimes unavoidable, it’s best to design systems and automations that have some kind of backup manual switch or something. For example, with Hue bulbs, I like to install their manual switches to turn them off and on.
Or, for other areas, I us switches and dumb LED bulbs instead of smart bulbs wherever possible.
What are the boxes under plugable?
Those are Aeon Home Energy Monitor (HEM) Z-Wave devices. Each has a pair of current transformer clamps to monitor power usage in his electrical panel.

I am starting to slow down on purchasing because I have a box of “goods” sitting next to me. And some on the way. I do love getting that box from Amazon.
