My Home Assistant Setup

My personal Home Assistant setup.

Dashboard

This is my Home Assistant Dashboard. It contains everything ‘at a glance’ so the thermostat can be set and the lights can be turned on or off in individual rooms. Here, you can also see all the temperatures of rooms, the weather, my calendar and media controls for the TV and Nest Hub

Automations

Living Room/Dining Room

Lights switch on at 3 points in the night using my Zigbee light sensors. On each trigger, the lights will turn brighter, which gives a more gradual change as the sun goes down.

SCREENSHOTS HERE

Kitchen

Lights in this room are turned on via a Zigbee motion sensor (LINK) when the light level is low enough. This device has a state where it will trigger off after a few minutes of people not being in the room.

Scripts

Heating boost

This is a solution I made from when we converted from an old boiler which used to have a ‘boost’ button which turned the heating or/and hot water. The button on the dashboard triggers the script which sets the thermostat temperature sets the ‘next period time’ to one hour in the future.

Christmas

My setup changes (as you might imagine) at Christmas time, however a lot of my all year round setup gets reused.
