please excuse my very noob question. After some initial struggling I have setup hass io and Deconz on my raspberry pi, it seems to be working flawlessly.
The next goal would be to automatically switch on my hallway light when the door opens. For that purpose I have connected a Xiaomi Door Sensor to the Deconz extension. It is shown there corrrectly, with its current status, e.g. door open / closed, and my Hue bulb in the hallway is connected to HA.
Now, I’ve read through the deconz documentation, but it’s too advanced for me. And no matter what I search for, I cannot seem to ‘find’ a guide in how to ‘code’ or a beginner’s introduction to Home Assisstant.
I am familiar with Data Science-y Coding, Java, R, Python, but still can’t seem to get the hang of it.
Therefore: I am more than willing to learn, but would appreciate if someone could point me to some beginning resources. Especially regarding:
- High Level Introduction, e.g. how is ‘automation’, ‘trigger’, ‘action’ defined in the context of home assistant,
- Maybe even ‘best-practice’ coding
- In the context of DeConz, how can I read the status of my sensor? This link should probably help me understand it, but I am missing background information to actually make sense of what it’s telling me
I hope I’ve shown I am trying to do my own research, and am willing to code the scripts myself, but am also running out of ways I can think of to help me here.
