BeardedTinker's Home Assistant configuration

Here you can find all of the configuration files from my Home Assistant installation - production enviroment. Updates are pushed whenever there is a change and I do try to work on the system as much as time allows. I wish to thank all of the Home Assistant community for being inspiration for lot of the things I did here. Where every I could I listed original authors of the code or parts of the code I used.

Want to get more info?

A lot of integrations and automations have videos on my YouTube channel - more then 250 videos as of Today, with at least 100 of them being Home Assistant How To's.

If you want to get in touch, you can always find me on Discord Server - BeardedHome.

Also, if you have time you can try and join me while streaming and there should be at 1 or 2 streams each month!

Folder structure and files

Insipred by Franck I've broken my configuration in various files.

It looks overwhelming at first, but when you get the hang of it, this structure is much easier to maintain and find something. Also disabeling parts of the integrations is just a rename away :)
