home automation

This probably deserves a bit of background - brace yourselves...

I have worked in the computer software industry for the last twenty-odd years, and currently work as a technical architect at Acquia. I am also a bit of a hobbyist and tinkerer, messing around with intel NUCs, raspberry pis and the like, usually something involving home automation, much to the consternation of my wife.  I've been running Home Assistant on an intel NUC (well, a pi initially, and then a NUC) for a number of years now.
