Updated my smart home
Automated IOT devices
Automated a full 3 scenes for my basement, that are extremely tailored to my needs, and added them as buttons to a mobile app, exposed to both Alexa and Siri.

For example "Game time" scene is:
  • Turning on the TV, PC and Soundbar
  • Switching the picture mode on the TV to "game" (fast response)
  • Switches the soundbard input to the desktop HDMI one
  • Switches the sound mode on the Soundbar to Entertainment
  • Starts Steam in Big Picture mode 
And Movie time:
  • Turns on the TV, Apple TV, Soundbar
  • Switches TV and Soundbar inputs to Apple TV
  • Switches Soundbar to Movie preset and Dolby Atmos
The amount of customization Home Assistance allows is mind-blowing, but adding to that the power of Node Red is like a super power. 

The cross ecoystem ability of all of this, means I'm not locked in to one ecosystem of Amazon/Apple/Google.

This replaces for me 3 separate remote controls with TONS of different buttons to remember to press, inputs to memorize and muscle memory.
