Ok. I admit it. I didn’t invent gunpowder nor am I a rocket science expert. But in my role as user I do know certain things are strange. Home Assistant is full of quirky stuff. And every time I find something that smells fishy to me I will put it in here.
- First, the default installation
Before you install Home Assistant it is impossible to disable auto detection. After you have installed it you can disable it.
- Advanced mode
In the user panel you can turn on Advanced Mode. If you don’t you can’t find the SSH add-ons for example.
- Home Assistant and Hassio
They are two names constantly used in all kinds of tutorials. They are two completely different things. 5/16: I received some comments on this part on Discord 😉
I can probably write a book on how great yaml is a language but 5 books how frustrating it is that 1 space too many in a line can kill everything.
- Check Configuration
You will probably use this button a gazillion times a day in the beginning! But why isn’t it present in the main menu??
