Welcome to Ben’s Smart Home

Around early 2016, I began the journey into the World of home automation when I stumbled upon an amazing open source project known as Home Assistant (HA) while searching for ways to maximize the potential of my home network. Before that, I already have various networking equipment such as network switches, my DIY Network Attached Storage (NAS), numerous CCTVs and IP PBX with few SIP phones. At the same time, I discovered the magic of Raspberry Pi, which is the hardware of choice for HA.
