This page contains information about all kinds of projects, hardware or software that I’m interested in building or using.

Tasmota Zigbee

Tasmota Zigbee

Zigbee2Tasmota is a lightweight Zigbee solution running on an ESP82xx Wi-Fi chip. Hence it is easier to deploy in your living room or around your home. It is largely inspired from Zigbee2mqtt but it’s a complete rewrite to make it fit on an ESP82xx with 80kB of RAM and only 1MB of flash memory.

Ordered at AliB:

CC2530 with external antenna en CC2530 with external antenna and CC2591 RF front end

The latter is more powerfull.

Raspberry Pi without SD Card

Hack My House: Running Raspberry Pi Without An SD Card | Hackaday

Netboot alternatives:

YubiKey lockscreend

I created a small daemon app that “locks” your screen when the YubiKey is removed.

This could easily be enhanced to create a universal lockscreen app on removal of any USB device.

Target platform is macOS, therefore it needs to have a proper installer. Homebrew is the way to go.

Results so far on github/tisgoud.

Smart doorbell

For just $2, convert any existing wired doorbell into a smart doorbell; using ESPHome and Home Assistant

Ordered at AliB:

ESP-01S with relay module board

Use case: Turn on the bedroom-lights when someone pushes the doorbell.
