Home Automation Project

After the purchase on our new house, I decided I’d like to implement some home automation. Starting with some monitoring and then maybe moving the lights and access.

This page will be used to document the process and store useful information I come across.

At this stage, this page will just have heaps of info, not necessarily the process. That will come later.
