People who've done FOSS/self-hosted home automation, what system(s) did you use and how well does your setup work?

@alexbuzzbee I'm just about to embark on it myself with a new house (being built now) using Home Assistant at the recommendation of several FOSS home-owning friends.

I've got a pile of IKEA TRADFRI stuff languishing in boxes, just another thing on the to-do heap.

+1 for HomeAssistant for the "brain" as it's absolutely superb.

I'm using a mix if IKEA Tradfri, iTead Sonoffs flashed with ESPhome, and my hot water & central heating thermostat is a HestiaPi.

If anyone knows any good brand of electric radiator with sensible APIs, I'd be *very* interested!

@gwmngilfen @deejoe @alexbuzzbee @codesections I'm looking forward to exercising my friend Hads' nice hack to control our new Mitsubishi heatpumps... and hope to contribute further to it as required to get it integrated into HA...
