The title was going to be another rant against Hass.io but in the end it seems it my fault. (Again) TL;DR Firewall settings for AD, malware, malicious urls disabled update worked fine. Maybe a host system reboot would be in order as well. Original title: Hass.io at 0.92.1 still not for the masses The title is repetitive as this problems are repetitive in nature. During … Continue reading Solved (for me) Hassio not showing update notification. [pfSENSE]
Sunshine… I thought that this movement false positive was only a cheap ip camera thing. Alas no… Come to think of it two sensors are starting to act up. Upstairs bedroom and outside. The bedroom sensor used to give me false positives due to a bad power supply. The outdoor one now seems to alert a lot as the shadow of the house grows and … Continue reading RCWL-0516: More outdoor issues with the PIR AM312

It’s a multisensor in middle of a corridor with 2 AM312s pointing in opposite directions. About a month later one of the PIRs started to have ghosting or signs of failure. … Continue reading AM312 PIR issues
Recently I upgraded to Hassio 0.70 (June 2018) Also installed: SONweb now (tasmota skin 2018.07) InfluxDB Grafana SONweb is fantastic.

After following some tutorial info video from I could for the most part navigate and … Continue reading Hassio “the grafaning”
Dr ZZs once made a video about ghost switching. When long leads pickup signals and the esp8266 (sonoff) interprets them as inputs. Not quite the case.

His happened in consistently at night which … Continue reading USB ghost switching
