My self made smart home setup, all powered by a Raspberry Pi. The goal was to make it as functional as possible, while spending as little money as possible. Now Siri can make me coffee!

Hi /sub/apple!

I'm a student and recently took an interest in Home Automation. My dad got Philipps Hue, and I loved the idea of being able to tell Siri to turn on my lights. However, 150$+ for 3 bulbs was a bit out of my price range, so I started looking for alternatives. The idea quickly evolved from just light bulbs to a whole lot more, and I'm really happy with how it all came together.

If you have any questions concerning the setup, just let me know and I will be more than happy to answer it.

Also, I realize that I have posted this here before so if you have seen this already I am sorry, I just thought it might be appropriate again as home automation is gaining popularity quickly, so I thought maybe this post would entertain/inspire some of you :)

Anyway you can give me a quick or even a detailed rundown on how this was done? I am wanting to do this for my parents at their house since my mom is actually really getting into home automation as well and we were thinking about spending over $1K on some homekit products (lights, door locks, thermostat, etc...)

Thank you!

-Assemble Your Team-

"Can we uhh, not have a Hanzo?"

"Now let me tell you right off the bat I'm a winner. I win. Big League. Its tremendous, my ranking, just phenomenal. I've talked to a lot of people, a lot of teams, they tell me "Trump, you're carrying", they do, they tell me I carry them, I carry the whole game. I win. And I main Hanzo.

"Okay, but he's just not very good on attack on this map..."

"Believe me, You're following the american meta, and trust me, I've played this for years, and look, look where its got you. Look, SR 2200? And you're following the american meta and you're losing left and right. It's the CHYNA. They're playing Hanzo and we've gotta do it better. I think the 2-2-2 meta was the worst meta I've ever seen. Just a disaster. We need youge damage. More arrows. More dragons. I've talked to a lot of supports, good supports, they tell me "Trump, we need dragons". And I know how to make the dragons, people."

No medals, first point lost

"Absolute shambles. You've let them kill me 8 times. 8 times, You oughta be ashamed, supports. Just a disaster. Frankly, and I won't say it, I shouldn't say it but frankly, and I have to say it. You disgust me. How do you not heal? You've been healing your entire life and you can't heal?"

But Trump you tried to solo the Reinhart as Hanzo WRONG

But... You literally wall climbed to nowhere again and again That makes me smart.

Do you even have any bronze medals? I've got the best medals. Really, I've got the very, very best ones. Go ahead, show me one category where you're ahead. The corrupt eliminations, you're not winning there. That's rigged against me. You're Lucio, you've got affirmative action of course you're ahead. And if you wanna see bad eliminations look at our Mercy. Just pitiful. And she's really not good looking and it's caused her a lot of problems, truly. Let me tell you if I wasn't held back I'd carry. If I had 1% of a real team. 1%! We'd have ultimates, and we'd be comboing them, believe me. But you're losers.

-Defeat-

"Wow, for a Hanzo main you're awful, jesus."

"No absolutely, I never said that. That's a lie. I main Genji. That was just locker room talk. Look what I did say was our team, just the worst I've ever seen. And their tanks, and their walls, they're killing us on those walls. And if you want to see bad eliminations. Just look at our Mercy. I mean really, really, really, not good..

Sad to see no maths section. The whole research group I'm part of is being funded by the EU, so they could definitely advocate it more often. In particular because mathematics has a very long and proud tradition in Europe, aside from its obvious uses for the other sciences.
