The config of home assistant is brutal. It is so easy to make mistakes. Very hard to figure them out if you are a novice.

Who will help me with my mochad problem?

Why doesn't this work:

The group background photo shows the sun sensor with "43 minutes ago" or similar. How does one enable that?

That's from a much older version; it's no longer part of the UI. As you can tell when you go to the main site or forums, the UI looks considerably different.

I think maybe they haven't been keeping up with the G+ group as much because the Forums, reddit and Github get so much more traffic.

I think a new change was added in 0.34.1 for support via the emulated Hue component.

Wink Hub devices - One shot pairing?

Does anyone know if Wink devices can be moved from one hub to another?

I've got two Wink Hubs. One to run rooted to experiment with, and one to run unmodified. If I pair Wink devices with one hub, can I move them to the other hub later? Anyone?

In answer to your first question, no it is not a one time thing. You can reset and pair devices as much as you want. as for the second question; as devices can only be paired to one hub at a time, you'd need to logically split your devices between the two hubs. But you don't have to worry about your neighbors having the same product unless they have access to your Wink Hub and your WiFi network, which I'm going to doubt is the case. Once it's paired, it's part of your account. Think of it like bluetooth. Your friend may have a BT device, but it's paired to their phone. Unless it is in pairing mode and not currently paired to your friends phone, you won't even see it as an available device.

Hello everyone!

I have just set up Home Assistant on rpi2 and connected it to my Vera3.

I would like to move away from Vera, as it often drops devices and I have to re-add them.

What rpi-compatible z-wave controller would you recommend for use with Home Assistant?

My system is operational now and seems to be fine. I used some pull-up resistors on the PIRs. I just need to make the wiring more permanent as it's on a couple of breadboards for now. Couple of pictures at https://steemit.com/technology/@steevc/keeping-the-lights-on

Interesting option for Home Automation hackers

The RaZBerry is a simple Z-Wave to Raspberry Pi adapter that lets you build a simple, inexpensive, and powerful Home Automation gateway using the Raspberry Pi, the very common Z-Wave* (Plus) standard, and your choice of Free and Open Source Home Automation software.
Examples include OpenHAB and Home Assistant.

See:
http://www.openhab.org/
https://home-assistant.io/
*and
http://www.z-wave.com/products
For a list of some Z-Wave compatible devices.

#SmartHome   #HomeAutomation   #IoT   #OpenHAB   #HomeAssistant  
(click on the red dots to get more info on the component). RaZberry brings Z-Wave to the Raspberry PI platform. Z-Wave is the leading wireless communication technology for smart homes. Raspberry Pi is a little and inexpensive computing platform the international developer community fell in love ...

More than just ZWave?

I've been looking at the Home Assistant site and in general I like what I see. I have a concern though. My plan is to use it with a rooted Wink Hub and that device supports a LOT more protocols than just ZWave, which is why I bought it. Will I be able to control all the types of devices that the Wink Hub can talk to through Home Assistant?

Thanks for the info, that's great to know I have options.
My biggest issue with the Wink is privacy/security related. I really don't want a lot of Cloud things in my home. At least not one's with that level of access. Corporate IT Security just doesn't have a very impressive history on these sorts of things.
However, the Wink Hub itself seems to be by far the best bang for the buck as far as hardware bridges goes due to it supporting so many radios and protocols. I really like the idea of being able to use nearly any home automation device I want.
I may still go the rooted/isolated route but it's nice to know I don't have to.

How many people here are using Z-wave with encryption on a RPI. I just configured my entire system and am debating on whether to re-add all my devices with encryption using the OZWCP WEB APPLICATION

Totally new at this. I'm trying to learn how to use home Assistant. Looks great. I have a couple of Chromecast on it already but they popped up on their own. I'm trying to add my ecobee thermostat to the program. I've gotten the API key but don't know what to do next.

Also, can I add a nest protect to home Assistant?

+John-Paul Hopman they are added automatically using the discovery in the configuration.yaml file. I'm still new to this do I've not yet figured out exactly the benefit but I'm hoping to create a home automation network and those are included.

I am new to HA but love the possibilities..

Had a question about device_tracker and how to use in a config? I have looked at the doco and the examples but still a bit unsure.

If I use the following, does it match when all devices are home or any device is home?

condition: state
entity_id: group.all_devices
state: 'home'

How can I distinguish between which entity caused a state trigger?

I have a state trigger with multiple devices listed and in the action I wish to use the triggering entity in a template.
