Home Assistant configuration

My Home Assistant configuration which connects to my Vera Edge to extend it's functionality.


Some of the things I've implemented:

  • Ability to disarm the alarm via Telegram actions
  • Fully automated living lights
  • Automated hallway lights which dim at night
  • Notify when washing machine or wash dryer is finished
  • Play speech messages via the Google Mini's
  • Presence detection with home coming and leaving automation
  • Night mode; turn the ground floor lights off and dim the hallway lights
  • Integration with Vera Edge
  • Modules with ESPHome communicating via MQTT
  • Enable ventilation when CO2 level reaches a certain level
  • Enable ventilation when the shower is used
  • Automated Christmas lights (only during the holidays 😉)
  • Notify when one of the smoke sensors detects smoke
  • Ghost mode; turn on lights for a short period when away to pretend someone is home
  • Start the vacuum cleaner based on a schedule with the option to override per day
  • Notify when the vacuum cleaner is done
  • Dim the lights when the TV is turned on
  • Turn the heating down when night mode is activated
  • Notify when you leave the frontdoor open
  • Make my vacuum cleaner come from under the couch to be able to empty it
  • Have a 'guest presence' option to override the presence detection
  • Send a snapshot of the person ringing the doorbell and announce it on the Google Mini's
  • DSMR integration, monitoring my energy and gas usage
