As the title says I’m a new Home Assistant user but a long time home automation enthusiast/addict. I’ve been using HomeSeer since 1999 when it was called AutoHome by Keware. I have a rather diverse, complex setup that I will be slowly transitioning from HS3 to Home Assistant. The mess that is called HS4 is enough to motivate me to undertake this task. Getting shelter-in-place orders from the California governor certainly gives me some time to get started. I’ve weathered many a storm over the years, wrote a lot of VB scripts to support my own setup, and even wrote a few plugins.
OK, enough with the past. Can anyone point me to newbie-land, where I can ask what I’m sure would be annoying questions for seasoned users? While I write Python for my day job, I’d rather not start off with digging into source code. I’m sure there are (or have been) others who have made similar transitions so getting some pointers from them would be much appreciated. I"m happy to document my efforts and compile a new user wiki as well.
Greetings from Northern California.
