Which automatically filters all the crappy AD’s OctoPI – The go-to solution for controlling 3D-Printers Raspbee/HomeAssistant – My OpenSource Smart Home Integration mainly using Zigbee Components MagicMirror2 – An open source Smart Mirror software which I am using for my smart screen But I wanted to go a step further. So next thing on my list: Microcontrollers, namely Arduino. As a first project I chose…
