NEWBIE: Best place to read for "How to ?"

Hi all, so excited to get my setup up and running but need some help as I can set up simple things like sensors to send me a message etc but have no idea how to set up things that , the door opens and sets off a speaker to play a sound file, or turn on a light etc…


Thanks in advance
