My background is a Computer Engineering degree and 15 years of working a few jobs as a network/system administrator. Recently, I have discovered the ESP8266 based Wemos D1 Mini along with Home Assistant.

I started this blog as a way to be able to document and organize what I did and for others to be able to see it as well. I had a lot of trouble understanding other people’s code and their wiring when I first got started, so my goal is to make it easy to understand for someone that is just starting out with it.
