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!
