Wifi Connected Wandering Hour Clock

Experience the transformative power of Arduino as I share my journey of upgrading a 3D printed wandering hour clock. Discover how I overcame obstacles, replaced the clock movement with a stepper motor, and enhanced the Arduino code to synchronize time with an NTP server and implement a web server interface for management and troubleshooting.

Home Assistant Automate Boring Stuff

Alexa, warm up the milk

A father improved his milk-warming process with home automation, progressing through three versions. Initially, he used an Alexa voice command with a Kasa smart switch. He then added a Zigbee button for convenience and non-Alexa users. Finally, leveraging his Eero mesh WiFi, he improved location accuracy for the sound alert through Home Assistant, offering a seamless experience regardless of the room. He shares his Home Assistant nursery dashboard for others seeking automation inspiration.
