  2. None
  3. Why ? • Custom Sensors and actuators based on ESP

    boards • ESP8266 (NodeMCU, • ESP32 (NodeMCU32, lolin D32, …) • Sonoff • WIFI / MQTT based • No cloud dependency • Easy programation using few YAML lines • Extensive capabilities out of the box • Integrates in HA • Over The Air Flashing • CHEAP ! • Why Not ? • Must like to tinker with Electronics • 3D printer recommended
  4. How ? • Install Hassio add-on • Build your HW

    project • Write some YAML lines • Initial firmware flashing via USB • next ones OTA • Device discovery in HA • Enjoy !
  5. What did I build with it ? • Motion detectors

    • Light Switch (sonoff TX) • Roller Blind automation • Multi-sensor box (temp, light,BLE,…) • Door sensor (reed relay based) • Salt level monitoring in water softener
  6. Demo Time !

  8. None
  9. Why ? • Advanced Automation workflows • “Easier” for me

    than HA built–in yaml based automation
  10. How ? • Install HA add-on • Take some time

    and practice to master the node-red logic
  11. Demo Time !
