My name is Randy. I've been into home automation on and off for over 16 years. Started off with HomeSeer v1 and some X10 devices, now have Hue lighting, NEST thermostat, August door lock, and yes, HomeSeer v3 and some x10 devices. Pretty much overkill for a small studio apartment, but hey, it's the thought that counts
I typically describe myself as an ex-musician from Michigan living incognito in Los Angeles as a Sr. Software Engineer for a Multinational Conglomerate Corporation... who secretly still writes music on the side. I'm into all sorts of geekery like electronics, software, writing music, making thingamabobs with my 14" mini metal lathe or Ultimaker2 3D printer.
I just finished a short phase of running HS3 on a Rpi3, complete with Homebridge integration for Siri voice control. I am now in the process of transferring (create from scratch?) HS3 to a new Intel NUC 6i7KYK running Windows 10 Pro so I could make use of the voice recognition. Once that is operational, I'll be adding an Ocelot IR box and a couple Gentner XAP800 audio matrices so HS can know which room I'm in when it receives a voice command.
Cheers to Pete_c for the suggestion to join this board and thanks for the help back on the HS forum! I hope to be able to spread my knowledge around as well as gain some new insights.
