I have a guy who does car ecu's ect...

 

He has been using https://nodered.org/ to mix & match home auto stuff

 

Its sound clever, but above my pay grade...

Hardcore stuff 

 

Ultimately ha is waste of time , it's lagging behind in tech , if it was the norm that all new build and people upgraded because devices were compatible enuf it would make life easier , 

 

So don't worry even if it's in your pay grade , you will be retired or dead before it really becomes something every household has got and it still wouldn't have happened

Combinations of Node-Red, MQTT and Home assistant make for some nice integrations not bound by the logic of an alarm control panel.  SelfMon customers have already started building on top of the MQTT interface to the Galaxy panels.

 

I agree that this needs to be more plug and play though. Most setups require too much fiddling with config files. It's not complex, just requires knowledge of all the config file options. A bit like configuring alarm control panels...

Yep, £3k for a sofa which is basically pallet quality wood, polystyrene and fleece wrapped in fabric. Huge markups. Same with beds.

 

Easier than crawling around in attics and under floors...

I already had various lighting circuits, heating and garage door controlled by the Galaxy, so now connected through the echo dot. However, my wife does not want the dot in any of the main rooms, so it's in my office.   I want each of the rads controlled, but would rather have 12v devices as don't really want to be messing with batteries - not really an option though.  Some of the retrofit blind controllers seem a bit big.

Not for me now. I think it's two years since I installed a system and I was totally shattered after an 8hr install.   It's much easier selling the kit.
