Home Assistant

Central air conditioning unit went out a month ago and I can’t afford to fix or repair it.

Put a 5,000 BTU window unit in my office, but I don’t want it running all the time as I need to find a way to cut my utilities to the bone.

Heard about something called Home Assistant where I can control things like that, so I added two smart plugs that it can turn on and off.

And as soon as I can afford a wireless thermometer, it theoretically can turn on and off the window unit based on the temperature in the room.

It is running on a raspberry pi 4 with 8 GB RAM.

No monitor, keyboard, anything, which I find interesting.

Here is a screen shot.
