Home Assistant (HA) is an open source home automation software designed to be the central control system in a smart home. Here I leverage it along with sensors and other software to automate several functions in my house. So far I have the following:
Phillips Hue Motion Sensors and Light Bulbs (remove the need for light switches)
MikroTik Router (uses wifi devices to detect my presence)
Sonoff Smart Plugs with Tasmota firmware (wifi controlled smart plugs)
