No progress here. I’ve had problems with the sore on my back…

I did sort a problem with the HomeSeer (which largely replaced my own stuff in April) set up the other day. The Raspberry Pi locked up and I was forced to unplug/replug. I think that step led to the corrupt SD card. Hours of troubleshooting and trying to fix disk before concluding my only way out was a clean install on the Pi and a hope I could restore from backups. At least that bit went very smoothly.

I’m not sure we have anything completely dependent on HA and a number of lights are usually operated via remote control but the study light was interesting. That uses an RGBW (chosen as we wanted both daylight for reading and warm for white for tv on the computer from the central light) and has a momentary mains switch for override. I couldn’t remember/work out its operation and, rather than searching for instructions online, wound up leaving the room lit up in pink from late evening to the following late afternoon when I finally restored things.
