I have an old APC UPS. It’s Back-UPS Pro 1000. It’s a decent UPS with all the functionalities that I want, except for the fact that it still takes lead-acid batteries. I recently connected it to my Home Assistant using Synology and NUT. This setup enables me to monitor the power, send alerts, and take action.
I have a need to run some cameras that need to be accessible only on LAN. One is just looking outside my window and taking a picture of the sky every hour; the other is just watching my pets.
This list is not a recommendation, just a starting point for your research. The set contains just three items, a Respirator with filter, gloves, and safety goggles. I use them, so I thought it might be helpful for you as a starting point. Do your research based on your use cases.
I wanted a complete toolset when I moved out of my parent’s home. Until then, I used my father’s set. He had them collected for a long time. I borrowed some from him, but I also built my toolbox. I will probably write a post on other tools. But here is the first one, and it is about power tools.
I want to use and run many small battery sensors across the home. Wifi would have worked, but battery-powered sensors make them portable and usable. Also, I would like to keep small sensors out of my wifi network for security reasons. Zigbee is the ideal candidate for this.
I always wanted a simple App that would read the SMS and push it to a web endpoint (also called webhook) sometimes. I wanted such an app to easily back up and process the SMSes in real-time and on the web.
