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.
Let the fun and games begin #SensorAllTheThings
Hah, I won (eventually). Although I did discover a problem with my docker-compose files...

Nope, decision made, Synology DS1019+ it is.
Starting off with only 3 HDDs to make the cost slightly more bearable, but still ending up with way more storage than I currently have.
It's a story as old as time...
Somebody who doesn't understand a technology copies and pastes from the internet to get a "test" thing up and running.
Time passes, the test thing gets used a lot, but it's status as a poorly copy-pasta'd thing from the web is forgotten, and it's assumed to be set up properly, like everything else.
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.
Calendar blocked out for #EMF2020 find the dates over on birdsite here https://twitter.com/emfcamp/status/1131201120376905728 but keep it quiet, we don't want it getting too popular to buy tickets 😉 #EMFCamp
Hates labels, unless you're talking about servers, in which case, it must be labelled. Gadgets, geekery, and hamradio
