Great premise and overall good

Overall a good solution, but there are a few issues that constantly creep up. Constant updates, compatibility constantly breaking, server side requiring constant updates. The whole point of HA is to have control of one’s own IOT. Let people stay on a stable environment for their home, getting exhausting every time an update on the server side is downloaded and pending it eventually forces an update and am afternoon of fighting to get zigbee devices all working and the integration to load.

Waste of time

I have to restart the server (raspberry pi 3 / 4) every few hours. I started with a raspberry pi 3, thought that it may be outdated, then bought a raspberry pi 4 and set up the OS on that. That was still no better. Each time I set it up it works fine for a few hours and then it’s nowhere to be found on my IOS app. I have to go unplug the server each time to reboot it only forward to work for a few more hours. The same thing happens on my laptop and my LG tablet. I thought this was supposed to eliminate apps, instead I have to keep all the original apps as well as this useless app that only works when it wants to. Reddit and Discord hasn’t been any help so far as all
My questions get skipped over and I never get a response. I feel like I have wasted countless hours trying to set up a miracle app that everyone swore would be my end all solution, when Alexa already worked 100 times better, and only took seconds to set up. At least now I have two raspberry pi’s that are free. The original one I plan on using as a server for my outside security system like I did before. The other, who knows, maybe I’ll finally emulator I’ve always wanted. All I know is I am done with Home Assistant.

Home Assistant is a total life changer!!!

Amazing!!! I’ve been in IT since 2007. So naturally I’m all about tech. I was turned on to Home Assistant by a couple of colleagues while working doing a lot of migration work due to an unfortunate acquisition. I started hard core from the get go. Deployed to my hypervisor environment and adopted a ton of Zwave, Zigbee and wireless later on Bluetooth devices. Just an amazing technology!!! Thanks to the developers and the many that have been a part of building and supporting such an amazing set of tools. I’ve found ways that this can help so many things… Thank you for all of your hard work!!!!
