Start your morning off with Google Home, Home Assistant, and YouTube!
I will use Home Assistant Cloud, Tasker, and a couple of physical buttons to set my presence throughout the apartment and extend it organically over time.
I listen to a number of podcasts every day. When I wake up, I refresh my podcasts and listen as I start my day. In my pursuit to constantly reduce my manual activity for recurring activities, I looked to automate it with Tasker, Home Assistant, and Podcast Addict.
A couple of weeks ago I created an automation to change the light in my living room for when I played video games.
Lights in my apartment dimmed, ambient lights came up around the television, with only a push of a button!
