Home Automation

Power management and autonomy through technology

Creativity Starts at Home

Home Automation

In the current electricity-challenged South African climate, We have all become reliant on the self-generation of electricity just to maintain some level of normality.

The reality is that solar systems are expensive, unless you manage them.

Although the system I put together is a working prototype, it effectively controls my household which is run by a 5KW solar system. 

I run my full home on this system.


How its built?

This system uses Home Assistant, an opensource home automation platform.

The hardware used in this solution:

  • Sonoff Wifi Switches
  • Tuya switches
  • Quantel switches
  • Luxpower inverter
  • Dyness battery
  • Micro PC
