I finally started documenting all the home automation devices and apps I use, with the main goal of everything running locally! Here's a fun list to browse through if you're looking for some holiday shopping ideas!
Heads up the the Schlage customer service and tech support are so bad that you might as well just consider them disposable devices. “Hey my lock won’t unlock.” I’d removed it and replaced after 24 hours, and 8 days later they respond. Took 7 weeks for a resolution.
Today I learned that Philips Hue bulbs are definitely reliable. Maybe once I have the money I could buy some so I won’t have to stand up to turn off the lights. Looking forward to their smart plugs though; my desk lamp isn’t that smart 😢
Unrelated: It resembles your life-stack page a bit, which is cool. Quick question: does p3k store these pages like any other posts or does it do it separately?
This is great thank you! Do you have a smart plug that you like? I'm looking for something that monitors wattage, not just turns off/on. The Wemo Insight Smart Plug is the right kind of thing but it's not hacker friendly.
