welp, managed to go a whole year without a major airline snafu until my last work trip of the year. Flight from Miami to Portland was cancelled, and all the other options from Miami were bad. So I'm taking the Brightline train to Orlando and getting on a direct flight to Portland tonight!
I'm excited that my last two trips of the year are both to beach towns in the US, which means an excellent opportunity for some drone flying! My last couple trips have been to places with too strict drone laws so I didn't bother bringing it.
We are just a couple weeks away from closing up the walls on the new house! Are there any last minute requests I should put in for things in the walls? We already have: ethernet everywhere, 2x the required power outlets, water on the patios, intercoms...
Sadly my hopes of getting a mailbox opened notification seem to be a lost cause. The 433mhz sensor doesn't have enough power to reach the 80 feet to the street. The Zigbee one does reach that distance, but not once it's inside the mailbox.
I just found a LoRa line of home automation products, and while I'm not a fan that their Home Assistant integration is all through the cloud API, I might have to give it a shot for this anyway.
