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.
I would like to know how well the current system, for deciding if the washing machine is running, is working.

I'll try to get the info from InfluxDB. It should be in there.

OpenTherm gateway

Yesterday I received the parts for the opentherm gateway. It's a small board that lets me connect the heater and thermostat to my network. With this I should be able to control the heater and thermostat and read the temperature with Home Assistant.

Today I soldered the kit and flashed the NodeMCU that connects the board to the wifi network. It already works standalone and I can read the values through the network. Now I only need to connect the board with the heater and thermostat.
