The 12th edition of the Home Assistant Community Highlights! Some interesting things popped up around our community, we thought was worth sharing.
Do you want to share something for the next edition? Information on how to share.
Do you have a number of domain names and would you like to track when an SSL certificate expires? Then you could try bkbilly’s blueprint that automatically sends you a notification when a sensor exceeds your set threshold value. Try it out!
Also, take a look at the Blueprint Exchange for more inspiration!
My wife decided to bake me a cake to go along with my birthday present this year. Can't wait to fire this thing up! from r/homeassistant
Hopefully, the cake tasted delicious and have fun with your Blue!
maxmacstn shared a really cool project on our Home Assistant subreddit page. It allows you to display sensor data from, for example, a room on an ePaper display. It works with ESPHome and you can also neatly finish this with a 3D printed case.
For those who would like to read their webcam status on a Windows machine, there is finally a solution! sleevezipper has written a program that you can install on windows and that can send data to your Home Assistant instance over MQTT, in the background as a service.
You can finally switch the lights automatically when you are in an online meeting 😉
Note: If you’re on MacOS, you can achieve the same using the Home Assistant Companion app for MacOS.
Would you like to automate feeding your pets? Then try the project of Sokolsok, who has turned it into a very cool project with its own PCB and 3D printed design.
You can read more about this project via this website.
