DIY Smart Doorbell for just $2, no soldering required ยป Frenck.devThis article is going to show you how to convert your (existing) wired doorbell (also works for battery-powered chimes) into a smart, WiFi-enabled, doorbell. The essential components needed sets you back about $2, yes, that is correct, just two bucks. No soldering is required and you don’t have to be an electronics expert.

Today I upgraded Home Assistant to the latest version 0.96.5.

  • I adjusted a few things that deteriorated in the meantime. Now the history and recorder tabs are working again.
  • I'm using the opentherm_gw component again instead of my own OTGW bridge. This allows me to use the climate thermostat component again.
  • I set up OwnTracks with the Private HTTP webhooks instead of the MQTT bridge. The webhooks have as a positive point that these don't need an extra certificate to keep it secure. It will just use the certificate that I use with Home Assistant.
