Great video guys but you really need a disclaimer for UNRAID. I have been using Home Assistant on UNRAID for ages, if you use the Core edition you greatly limit your expandability in future. That's because HA Core is the bottom level for features, then HA Supervisor and finally HA OS. HA Core - docker ready but missing features including the big one, store add-ons. HS Supervisor - for systems with an OS i.e. Linux, Pi and contains all the features HA OS - for those wanting a VM with an OS only for HA to reduce overhead (basically HS Supervisor + minimal OS) If you want to take your automation to the next level with MQTT and other protocols you need add-ons which cannot be installed on HA Core. While you can transfer 70% of your configuration its not a 1:1 so if you thinking of going down the HA yellow brick road, advised to avoid core. Please get this to the top please to help others :)

If someone breaks into your car to steal your garage door opener and knows where you live. You got bigger problems. If you are that paranoid. Hide the fob in the engine bay. Take it out of there before you start your car. Lol

A warning for people who are interested in a career in IT: the title of this video is very apt. Nothing EVER works. Or if it does, don't expect it to do so consistently. Also, if something in the software is broken, it's either Java or DNS. Or Certificates that expired. Fucking Java.

You know I bought the separate My Q hub and transmitter and set it up in my garage to work with my 80’s era garage door so I could open it with Alexa over a year ago.... only problem I ever had was when I forgot to change the credentials when I swapped routers but a hard reset and 15 mins to set it back up worked great. With that being said I’ve been considering the home assistant docker for my unraid system but have heard it’s a nightmare to get up and running. Would you say it is any easier or harder than setting up unraid itself or other dockers such as plex and makMKV?

Get the MyQ, then block it from WAN access. Then use HomeKit natively or HomeAssistant to trigger it when out of the house. That solution is free, and avoids any “updates” from Chamberlain. Siri or the Home app happily handle my garage door without the garage door having any WAN access. HomeKit is free, an AppleTV or iPad handles the hub task, and securely provides external access.

It looks like your EMC problem was happening because you put your external relay contacts across the switch that triggered the base of a transistor (or the gate of a FET) , maybe they left off the pull up resistor from the circuit which made the transistor very sensitive to induced currents from electrical noise. Check for the pull-up and if there isn't one then try adding a 4K7 from the green wire to the circuit supply voltage, this will then "de-sensitise" the transistor. You could also try winding your purple and green wires together to form a twisted pair which will help to cancel out any common mode induced interference.

Ummm... So, I use IFTTT to forward Alexa commands to a Raspberry Pi, which then controls a bunch of stuff in my room. But I am also limited by the 3 recipes without the subscription. Well... It turns out, that you can just use multiple accounts and connect them to the same amazon account - so my Alexa can run as many IFTTT triggers as it wants to. I just have to create a new account for every 3 triggers.

LMAO, Here Linus from Brittanica - Diminishing returns, also called law of diminishing returns or principle of diminishing marginal productivity, economic law stating that if one input in the production of a commodity is increased while all other inputs are held fixed, a point will eventually be reached at which additions of the input yield progressively smaller, or diminishing, increases in output.    Just get the car remotes for that specific GDO if their app bites...

My system is by far better and superior than yours. When I come home and park on my driveway, I get out of my vehicle and physically open the garage door, park my vehicle inside and then physically close the garage door myself at the end of the day. Far less complicated, more secured and above all, effective. Problem solved.

I'm assuming the fob in car idea is bad because someone could break into the car and steal it? Is that what you're worried about? Doesn't seem like an issue if you don't get your car broken into. Of course, I have old cars no one cares about and I'm not well known enough for people to spot me from my car and target me.

I love how Linus admits he was too lazy to install an opener himself so he called a company and they only offered the one, and when that one particular installer turned out to have wireless switches, instead of saying "okay i will buy a new one and just do what i was going to do before", he just adds as much extra shit pretty much as possible until eventually things are working as he imagined in his head.

Having this same setup myself... there is still one gotcha too look out for... if you have the garage door open, and close it from the app... if something triggers the safety trigger like say a stray cat running out of the garage, you cannot close the door until you get back to the house and press the switch.
