Hello! My name is Svetlana, I'm a UX/UI designer working on a design for a smart home app. I want to know about the experience of using any smart home application (be it MiHome, Tuya, Home Assistant, etc.) and your own thoughts. If you have a similar experience and want to help, please write to me in private. Your participation will help me make the product better and understand the needs of real users. I'm looking forward to communicating with you! Thank you.
Hi. So when I had my house build I ran a bunch of stuff, one of which being two pairs of speaker wires to each bedroom and to 4 spots around my living room… Over the years I have used them here and there with different success.. But today they sit in my walls just unused.
I converted all the cat6 or 5e (I don’t remember) over to basically eithernet jacks. The cable coaxial well it’s there but now unused. But I was thinking there has got to be some use for two pairs of speaker wires to each room. Can I make them usb plugs? Not sure so looking for ideas.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts on this.
Not sure to ask here or the other place.
Was looking again at a Luup restart at almost exactly the same time as my alarm 'clock' goes off and triggers a Reactor. Pretty sure it's not either of those things but...

This is weird, Of all the luup lockups and restart I had with the vera, I had never seen this one.
I know I am going to sound like a broken record but... In hindsight, putting things in perspective, the time spent in troubleshooting and peeling the vera onion would have been much better spent migrating away from it. There are just too many problems in the source code for us to be able to fix or find workaround for and the first step to avoid these is really openLuup. There is really nothing the vera and its cloud service does which can't be done better by openLuup and local bridges. Including the Alexa...
