I noticed that I got “depreciated” in my OpenZWave dashboard on HomeAssistant. Though the official documentation did not provide an easy migration, thus I messed a bit around a bit. I was not able to perform a clean migration and had some problems with devices, so I decided to start the integration from scratch. Phase
Another home project of mine was to set up cameras around my house to keep annoying peeps away. But instead of buying an expensive NVR (Network Video Recorder) and camera’s, I decided to build my own NVR, so I could play around with some AI on image recognition and trigger alarms that worked into my
My two daughters are becoming gamers as they see their dad gaming from time to time. Besides Roblox, they love Minecraft but just have 1 account. Thus I decided to build a local Minecraft server for them to let their imaginations run wild (aka creative mode=on). As I switched a while back to Proxmos, where
You might have heard that IBM has bought Red Hat. Now we can start to speculate why but IMHO it had something to do with talking to the “cool kids” with OpenShift! I decided to check it out and see what it could mean for my current Infrastructure department. Now instead of building the complete
I did a blog in the past on installing SABnzbd on FreeNAS though with code release 11.2 this changed and the plugin is not listed by default anymore. There are a few guides out there and I decided to list my steps and grab the best of all guides. Setting up the User In the
I have been running Domoticz for quite some time now and it has become the central point of our home. We don’t use it just for the lights but also camera’s, temperature, sunscreens, scenes etc. Though the recent version (4.10717) caused an error after updating on my old Pi generation 1 (GLIBC_2.17 missing) so it
From my current System job at IBM, we talk a lot of “IBM Cloud Private” where you can build your own Cloud using, at its core, Kubernetes, Docker and Helm. I decided to look into this by deploying it on my local VMware system on two Ubuntu vm’s and play around with it.
Recently I started an online course to learn Python to understand the global concepts of Machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI), Big Data, and Robotics which all rely heavily on Python. Even Cyber security is driven by Python. While Java is still the number one requested development language, Python is already in the top 5 overall (source; https://stackify.com).
I decided to pull my dedicated server from “collocation” and rebuild it for home use. I was running VMWare on my NAS (see earlier post) and was about to hit the maximum utilization of the hardware (not just CPU but also networking). My goal was to create a new VMware server for my virtual park
Now that I have virtualized my FreeNAS installation I no longer need to run “Jails” on FreeNAS and can use a normal Ubuntu installation to run my downloading services like Sickbeard and SABnzbd. In this blog I explain the basic installation running the two services on the same virtual machine running Ubuntu.
