Spent about half my day playing around with Home Assistant.

I've got my cameras, alarms, CO detector, mesh, and cellular hooked in so far.

My smoke, heat, and freeze detectors aren't reading properly, but I'm not ready to give up on it yet.

When we get to my lights, a pair are Phillips Hue via Bluetooth, which apparently aren't supported (as they don't use a Hue Hub).

The rest of the lights, plus an outdoor smart plug, are all Globe. Apparently, these are Tuya and I'll have to do some sort of Tuya convert to get them synced in.

I also have a number of Alexa devices, but I'm not sure if I want to bring them in. The whole point of moving over to HA is to get away from the Amazon's & Googles...

Maybe there's a way to clear the Echos & use them for HA with a non-Amazon digital assistant... Going to take some more digging.

Now, what else should I look into integrating here...
