Hi. My Name is Jeff.    jeff_chewbaca

I’m the one in the black shirt in the picture on the right.

You may know me from Twitter (@thejeffreystone) or from Github or maybe even from YouTube where I recently started doing videos about Home Assistant.

Or perhaps you are simply asking, “how did I get here?”

Either way, I am glad you are here.

This blog exists so I can share my journey to automate all the things using Home Assistant with you. If that sounds interesting to you stick around. We have zwave cookies.

And if you would like to support me, and/or this content consider doing one of the following:

As far as me…

I am addicted to building solutions to problems. These days those solutions are usually built with Python. But I have never met a tool I didn’t like, and when given the chance I will always choose open source. Not only do I use open source but I love contributing and one day hope that my full time job can be focus on Open Source.

I love quoting movies with my beautiful wife, playing trains with my son, laughing at our crazy lolcats, hiking, defeating templars in Assassin’s Creed games, rooting for the Dallas Stars, woodworking, long vacations at Disney World, reading everything from cereal boxes to the latest in The Expanse, or working the next cool thing I get to do using Home Assistant.
