The workshop will cover:
 
* Setting up Home Assistant
 
* Using Home Assistant with GPIO
 
* Programming ARM microcontrollers
 
* Using 1Wire connected ARM microcontrollers with Home Assistant
 
* Creating automation rules using Node Red
 
 
 
The workshop kit includes:
 
* Orange Pi Prime (4 core 64bit ARM, 2GB RAM)
 
* 24V AU Plug Pack
 
* Custom hat for the OPi, with GPIO broken out, 1wire controller & temperature sensor, DC/DC power supply & pushbutton
 
* 433MHz RX/TX modules to add to the hat later for RF interaction
 
* SWD Programmer for programming & debugging ARM microcontrollers
 
* 2 x 16 Channel 1wire->solid state relay/switch input boards
 
* 1m ethernet cable to link a 1wire device to the hat (additional devices can be daisy-chained)
 
* Relay module (for demo purposes, I expect that real usage will use devices such as 5 channel DIN solid state relays)
 
* 3d printed cases for the OPi &1wire boards (maybe, will see how much time I have available for design)
 
 
 
The workshop kit will come out to between AUD$100 & $150, and is yours to
 
keep. The machine is intentionally overpowered, so you can run additional
 
services as you grow your system.

Pointers for new players

There was a request at the BoF for pointers for new players. There are heaps of references online. For example:

  • Awesome Home Assistant has a list of publicly posted configs
  • I (mikal) have also posted my config online, as well as writing a few blog posts about stuff I've done which seemed interesting at the time. If there were parts you want to see explained in more detail let me know and I'd be happy to provide pointers.
