Update: please read this annoucement post.
First of all, I’d like to express my appreciation to the community for the effort and energy put into making Home Assistant the absolute best home automation hub out there.
I was amazed by the new Blueprints feature which was introduced in the latest release; I think this could be a game-changing feature to help many new users getting started quickly with Home Assistant, but I found the need for a place where the community could share high quality curated blueprints, which can benefit from the power of open-source for constant improvement.
That’s why I decided to kick-start this repository:
This project aims to build a curated list of automation blueprints for Home Assistant, which can then be easily imported and updated in any Home Assistant instance. Each blueprint included in the collection will be:
- Highly customizable and flexible to user needs, but still hiding the complexity of their internal working to the user;
- Reliable on most situations and corner cases;
- Fully maintained , collaboratively developed and tested by the community .
One of the main focuses of the project is on Reliability. With more and more people looking into home automation every day, it’s important that our smart homes run on reliable software. This includes not only server OSs, home automation hubs, and general services, but also the automations we use throughout the day.
The ultimate goal is to develop an highly valuable resource for Home Assistant newcomers who would like to include complex automations in their home automation setups with just a few clicks, without even touching a single line of code.
I’ve added a single example blueprint and I’ll add more in the next days, but to reach the goal of building a collection of reliable, high quality blueprints for empowering smart homes I need to ask for your help guys!
So if you’d like to step into this journey, adding your own blueprints, improving existing ones or simply submitting blueprint ideas which will then be built by the community, you’re welcome! Any contribution is highly appreciated.
Moreover, if you’ve any feedback or suggestion, I’d be really happy to hear your voice.
What do you think guys of this project?
Thank you very much for your time!
