Hello everyone! I am pretty new to all of this; the extent of my “automation” up to this point has been smart devices (lights and speakers) that I interact with via Google’s assistant. My ultimate goal is to be able to switch from that to something that stays within my network, and Home Assistant looks like it’s built for that.
I currently have Home Assistant running on my Synology DS418play. I expect to be spending a fair amount of time here as my experience with Unix is rather limited…from a Unix class I took 8 years ago I basically only remember how to find where I’m at, change directories, and cat something.
Looking forward to learning a lot and hopefully being able to contribute before too long!
