Hey, I am a computer science/software engineering student from Stuttgart, Germany. I am convinced that open source is the way to go, so I try to do my best to contribute my share to it.
Besides my studies, I also worked as a system operator, security administrator and lecturer at a college. During my bachelor's and master's program, I did some working-student jobs in the finance industry and a little social volunteering. Currently, I am in the last year of my study and work some hours per week as a freelancer in a german financial company.
In my student time I also created a few private projects which are, of course, open source...
Smart-Home related code in Home-Assistant and in also some integration for it, like
- Sure Petcare Integration 🐾 to support your connected pet or cat flap in Home-Assistant. (Sure Petcare)
- Horizon HD Recorder 📺 to control your Horizon via Home-Assistant (a receiver of german cable-tv provider Unitymedia)
- PyGlow 🌈 a Python library to control PiGlow, a small Raspberry Pi LED Hat
and also in AppDaemon itself and apps for it, like
- AutoMoLi 💡 a fully automatic light management based on motion and other smart features.
- EnCh 👩⚕️ to ensure your Home-Assistant entities will not run out of battery, not have undesired states and other checks.
- NotiFreeze ❄️ which reminds to close windows if temperature difference inside/outside exceeds a specified threshold
- Healthcheck 🏥 a simple health check app that is providing an API to use as a docker-compose health check for AppDaemon or similar.
and standalone smart home tools, like
- miblepy 🌴 🌡️ ⚖️ which fetches data from various (Xiaomi/Mijia/Mi) Bluetooth LE devices and push it to a MQTT broker in a coordinated, sequential manner
Libraries powering the smart home stuff
- surepy 🐾 Library for the Sure Petcare API. Used by the Sure PetFlap/CatFlap Connect smart flaps.
- horimote 📺 Library for controlling the Horizon HD-Recorder of Unitymedia Germany.
