Ideas of things you can run with Home Assistant

Hello everyone,

I thought it might be useful for new users to find a list of possible projects/applications that they can build with Home Assistant.

Here are few “things” you can run in your house with Home Assistant:

  1. LIGHTS (switches, dimmers, colors)
  2. GATES (doors, automated outdoor gates, garage, windows)
  3. THERMOSTAT (temperature in different rooms, timers, etc…)
  4. DOOR BELL (cameras, sounds)
  5. SHUTTERS (sunblinds, balconies, etc)
  6. ENERGY CONSUMPTIONS MANAGEMENT
  7. ALARM (movement sensors, cameras, gates and windows magnets, etc)
  8. GARDEN IRRIGATION
  9. GOOGLE / ALEXA INTEGRATION (say_google, manage things with your voice)
  10. MOBILE APP iOS and ANDROID (presence detection)
  11. GARDEN MOWER
  12. GENERATED SOLAR POWER MONITORING (solar panels energy production) - I am not sure
  13. AUTOMATIONS (automate appliances behaviors)
  14. ELECTRONIC APPLIANCES IN GENERAL (dishwasher, washing machine, electric vents and heaters, etc…)

what do you think? Any other idea/suggestion?

Some people control irrigation too.
This part of the forum is to show successful projects or projects in progress.
It is not designed for just a random collection of ideas.

Hi @anon34565116, thanks for your feedback and sorry about that. Should I remove this post?

The moderators have left it so I guess it is OK.

Can you share some implementation of GATES (doors, automated outdoor gates, garage, windows)? I’m interested in any of these products for gates to access a backyard and would prefer to not assemble my own.
