I appreciate your time. As a HA newbie and a computing novice I’m really struggling at times.
If this helps
Home Assistant 0.95.4 running on intel NUC with ubuntu 18.04
I have very basic setup at the moment with a few sonoff switches (having only recently established a basic understanding of hassio.)
I want to be able to set my family members and special guests to have automations in lighting (and eventually other components) when they enter my property. I live in a rural area and there is no other light than that provided by my house or the moon. And of course I want the oohs and aaahs of suitably impressed people about how clever I (you guys) are.
That being said I have listened to videos/podcasts from bruh, juantech, superhousetv and others. I flick around the forums. I am NOT a computing knowledge base. I am a good learner though.
My reading and listening indicates that a range of presence detection formats allows a form of redundancy so that if one fails (conflict with back end setup etc) another will effect the change.
I already have owntracks as stated and would prefer that my devices like phone etc are picked up at the range of my wireless network (this network at least has little dropouts as even if power disapears I have a UPS that will provide about 6-8 hours of internet and wireless)
This led me to nmap. Thus my question.
Have just read some more and found the following guide https://hackertarget.com/nmap-cheatsheet-a-quick-reference-guide/
I input the range variable (all my devices that I want are in a small range of static/mac configurations in my draytek) and hassio has them appear in devices.
onward and upward
