I’m a French guy, passionate about electronic and low-level programming. It’s also my full time job since 1986.
I live in Lyon in the same apartment since 1995. I totally rebuilt it in 2018 and almost all is automated or could be one day.
The technology I’ve chosen is KNX on twisted pair cable because it’s a distributed technology without server. I have a gateway between KNX and my LAN and this gateway supports programming and have some automation stuffs.
Almost all my lights are HUE from Philips. I also have an HVAC but not easily to integrate in an HA.
I’ve added a RPi3B+ and I’ve tried many Home Automation solutions, like openHAB, Jeedom, HomeGenie and now Home Assistant / HassIO.
