About the Hardware category

The hardware category is for discussions about hardware devices. For example, you could talk here about whether WeMo switches are good, how to set them up in general, and alike. But if you want help configuring them with Home Assistant, use the “configuration” category.


Sounds like a good place to put device reviews.

Great discussions on hardware. I am looking for a “first stop” hardware list? Something that can be used as the first place to find the most common hardware, (switches, motion detectors, sensors, lights etc.), as well as some of the most important info to be aware of. Great for newcomers and those wanting to expand their auto home capabilities.

If anyone has such a list, that would be really helpful!

Hey mods,

Wondering if we could get an Australian/NZ subsection in here ?

Our standard are pretty unique to the rest of world and hence there are seperate certifications for electrical compliance etc.

We currently have a thread with over 2100 posts that started off as a question about what products are certified in Australia and has now developed into a support/question/observation/compliance thread - it is almost impossible to find anything in there even with searches etc.

If we could have a subsection we could then ask all of our specific Australian/NZ questions in there
