I have been dabbling in updating parts of my home to use "Smart Home" Technologies. Somethings have been straightforward and others have been more difficult. Some basics first:
- Since I worked for Google, I am using Google Home and its ecosystem when it works well enough that my wife does not get frustrated using it.
- For things that don't directly work in the Google ecosystem, I will investigate things to see if there are ways to link them up that work reliably (It needs to avoid frustrating my wife).
- I am not trying to do everything at once, but I will try to replace subsystems with the same solution.
