Home Automation

There's almost nothing I am missing though. I honestly can't think of anything I need so it's much easier to do nothing. I remember my biggest gripe with it was the status of lights was not real-time like SmartThings was. I'd turn off a light and it'd say off in Home Assistant 10 seconds later, which was annoying when you had things triggering off things like that. Its also not free. I have no extra Pi and I'd have to get a Zwave/Zigbee dongle for it.

I try to avoid introducing more annoying things into my life like that.

It looks like I could set up home assistant to automatically open Plex and go to my profile on Roku. Or automatically go to YouTube for Evie. I'll maybe put it on a VM and play around with it
