I'm not sure, but I think @privacyint might be having recurring dreams about 5G...
@marco Do USB 3 B and micro count as different types too? They're still compatible with earlier B and micro, but they aren't backwards compatible
Ahh, a productive week with #homeassistant (well, it's all relative), and I can now call myself one of those people who arrives home when it's dark and has his lights turn on automagically.
Instead of working on and improving the presence detection/edge cases for that, I'm going to jump straight into my second automation, of having my lights pulse various colours in the morning, if any of the London Underground lines that I use to get to work are status != 'Good Service'.
Keeping it simple 😂
A quick lunchbreak hack on my home assistant set up at, erm, home, and (finally) managed to do what had been stumping me late at night for the last few days.
I now have cross-vlan jiggery-pokery working, so my main #hass install can now control my lights/smart sockets/etc which are on my locked down IoT vlan.

Then an upgrade is run, and that thing blows up.
@mikechislett Not yet. It's too big to be a doorbell, but I'm tempted to make it a party button for my flat, if I can work out how to do party mode on my lifx bulbs.
