down the Node-Red rabbit hole, part 5 - hold my beer
part1part2part3part4 so, it's been 4 months since i started this journey and i gotta say that NR has really re-vitalized my personal interest in home-automation, as well as, my HA and whole house setup. i've done more in the past 4 months, to streamline my setup and adding new automations than i've done in the three years since i started using HA somewhere around v0.24.x'ish. i got that shit dialed in now. (also some credit to EspHome for being awesome, despite having meh documentation. yeah, i said it. meh👏doc👏u👏men👏ta👏shun) at this point i have about 36 NR tabs. some are just testing, or playing around with a particular component/palette, but most have at least one flow on it that is live and in use. so, i thought i'd break some of them down for you guys, 'barney style+': (also, some of these are way to huge to post readable screenshots of, so i'm just gonna describe them. plus some of these i detailed in my previous posts.) first up is my globals. where i set global.vars
sets the day/night thermostat values, so i only need to edit them in one place.
looks at my power usage on my 'dumb' tv via sonoff s31 and sets a tv on/off global.var
gets the current volume of my sonos
gets the battery status of my iphone
sets the location status of my iphone according to my unifi link
pulls the current weather info from darksky
posts a NR heartbeat to a mqtt topic (that HA watches for and sends alert if missing for more than 10min, i think it's my only automation still running in HA)
sets/gets global quiet time
won't let alexa set the thermostat to anything less than 70 or higher than 86. since that one time i told her 78 and she heard 8, and set it to 8. dumb bitch.
sets dryer on/off by reading the SCT/Esp8266 sensor value.
same for washer
a 'feed the fish' reminder for alexa to TTS
use twilio to send me SMS as my standard notify, but i only have the single send node for me. all my flows that send texts use a link node to this flow.
other housemates SMS linked send nodes.
turn shit on
turn shit off
and shake it all about
similar to above
less shaking about, especially in the mornings.
i have made it a little smarter by using the HA workday component, so now it won't wake me up on holidays. https://imgur.com/66KNbfB
if bedroom door opens, and i'm not home, flash the light blue/red, alexa TTS: 'the cops are coming' (total bluff), send SMS alerts.
same for bedroom window
i plan to add live video via the newer iOS app soonish.
edit: forgot to mention, i also now have a petsitter IB, so when thats on it will not set off the alarm, so my housemates can feed my fish. i still get text alerts that my door opened tho.
'sleep mode' drops the volume of my sonos by 1% per 1 minute. vol30 = 30m. when 0, stops music, sets volume back to original.
pings my internal servers/VMs and then texts me if they don't respond after 10m.
checks heartbeat mqtt of each of my esp8266s and then texts me if they don't respond after 10m.
checks heartbeat mqtt of my unifi and then texts me if it doesn't respond after 10m.
watches the temp on my bitcoin miner, alerts if gets too high.
watches the temp on my bedroom sensor, alerts if gets too high.
battery (the nodes are very similar to above)
i have a .sh running via cron on my macbook air & work macbook that post the current battery percentage to mqtt, so when the batteries go below certain threshold it turns on the charger, gets to 100% turns off. it's also send text message if it's below 10%.
i have an input_boolean on the HA front end, when on, it...
turns on/off the aquarium light
sets the thermostat to global.away_temp
one button push to backup my spotify playlists. link
every 3m, records what song listening to. this works on any spotify device i happen to be using. i don't even have to be home. i could be in the grocery store and it'll post what my AirBuds are blaring via spotify. nifty.
randomly picks from 12 affirmative responses. i use it on all my switch commands as an alexa acknowledgment.
this one i'm really proud of. it watches the Alamo Drafthouse (movie theater chain) for the two theaters near me, for when new tickets go on sale, then texts me. it keeps a list of the current titles listed, hits their site for a json, then compares if anything new is on the that list. if five new titles got added, i get five texts.
i've even shared this with a few select friends, by adding in their theatetext numbers. they love it. today i bought the first Alien 4K restoration tickets. last week i got tickets to 'an evening with adam savage' minutes after they went on sale.
so, yeah. i'd like to see some of you post some of your flows/ideas if only so i could totally steal them. . . +obscure skippy joke. it's from a book++. ++yes i read. well, i audiobook, but same diff+++. +++i mean, it's just basic science!++++ ++++i mean, that study coulda been bullshit, sponsored by "the audiobook council" or some shit, but i'm taking it at face value.
How I turned $3500 into $15000 mining Cryptocurreny during the 2017 boom at 17 years old
First let's start at my first interaction with Bitcoin. Back in 2016, I was trading Minecraft accounts, you could find my story about that in one of my previous post. Long story short, a buyer had offered to buy one of my accounts for a fair amount of Bitcoin. I declined not knowing what that is and not caring. Fast forward a little over a year, May 2017, I find out that you could actually mine cryptocurrency and profit from it. I talk to my techy uncle about it, he looks into it, decides to build a rig. This was easy for him since he had built computers before. Meanwhile summer, I am currently in New Zealand enjoying a vacation. When I come back, I look for ways to get this thing started. My uncle lives hundreds of miles away from me but luckily my mother knows someone who had mined crypto for a while. His name was CryptoNinja. Crypto Ninja was a cool guy, he was a security analyst for a contracting firm. Knew lots about computers and programming. This was easy for him to grasp. When I met him, he had 2 rigs, one consisting of 6 1080ti's and the other with 4 1070's. If you don't know what these are, a 1080ti is or was the top of the line mining graphics card that you could get. Best of the best. Each costed about $550 at the time. 1070's market value were around $300-400 which at the time made mining extremely and easily profitable. This guy taught me how to do everything and when I say everything I mean it all. We started off with ordering the parts, He told me which parts were good for what and bad for this. We ordered from all over the place, Amazon, Newegg, and Microcenter. I gathered a list of parts, SSD, HD, GPU, CPU, MOTHERBOARD, RAM, ETC. All totaling out to about 3.5k. I had 6 1080's that I bought for around 500 each. This was the first time I've built a computer. I was a complete noob. He guided me through the process of starting with software, finding a mining pool, starting up your operating system, and taught me how to manage and maintain the mining program, hardware, and external factors. The whole process of ordering/shipping was about a week, building the computer took about 3 days, setting up programs took about a day. After that, boom. I'm running the mining program with a pool on Zcash. A pool is pretty much a group of miners collectively putting their computing force to get more results. Meanwhile, I'm a senior in High School, bringing my macbook to school everyday to check up on the rig through Remote Desktop after every class. All of this was occuring around Sept. 2017 where BTC was going up up. And I'm talking around 10k. Boy was I racking in a ton of Zcash. Everytime after I'd rack in a good amount, I'd transfer my Zcash directly into my Bittrex account which then I traded for bitcoin and altcoins like OMG, OmiseGO, NEM, ETC. But there was this one time when I got on Bittrex at school and I saw Zcash had mysteriously went up to $400 in 10-15 minutes, the timing had never been better. Guess what I did? Sell all my Zcash yep. Made a good amount of money off of that. Every coin was going up. I continuously made successful trades because prices were going up. I felt like the man. By the time December came around, I had 10k worth of crypto in my exchange account. I know, dumb to keep it in the exchange account but hey I did it. I was the only one mining crypto at my school and people knew me for that but they didn't know how much I made, I joined the investment club. They talked about investing in crypto, what is it? is it safe? they wanted me to speak, i didn't out of fear. They all thought it was a fad. These were traditional stock trader type kids. It was hard for them to understand the concept but by the time they wanted in it was too late. I already cashed out $12.2k. Bitcoin was like 18k at the time and I needed somewhere else to put my money. I decided to buy a whole new gaming setup. Which costed me around 2.5k and a new desk and cool random stuff for my room which costed a few hundred. I spent a lil more money than I wanted to but it was okay. then it came time to sell my mining rig, Bitcoin was falling. People were freaking out. I was out already. The prices of GPU's multiplied by 2. This was insane. I sold my gpu's on ebay for 3k and gave the rest of parts to either friends and kept RAM for myself. At the time, I was still 17. People would look at my computer and say what is that? Oh Bitcoin? That's Stupid. Welp. Not anymore words. What am I doing now? Well I invested in some Quantum Computer Stocks, put some back into Crypto, and put some money into OG accounts which I have a whole story on on a previous reddit post. I learned a lot from this and look back smiling.

''' I thought as many people said, it is not worth it, but i had a PC sitting around and I tried a couple of cloud programmes and [Cudo Miner]1 came recommended through a reddit thread I started and I have it running and it is flipping awesome. It brings me in about 60€/month for about 35€/month electricity costs, but I live in the south of Portugal where electricity is very expensive ...so although I am profiting 25€/month, I am actually putting away 60€/month of BTC (it mines ETC, Raven and Monero - or whatever is the most profitable at the time - then converts and pays me out in BTC) which is allowing me in a way to use my electricity bill as an excuse to save another 35€/month of BTC. ..and it uses GPU and CPU mining at the same time, and of course you can setup the same account on multiple machines (if you have an office, student halls etc with electricity included you are laughing). Of course I also DCA Bitcoin every month where available as many point out, if you are investing in the mining rig, you are likely better off buying BTC. ..but think of it this way, if you have the hardware sitting there already ...for an investment of 35€/month in electricity, if BTC goes x10 in the next few years (which is a very modest hope compared to what many suggest/predict) then my machine is currently putting away 600€/month. Check it out and see what rate you current CPU and GPU predict, then at least you have an idea ...I could add my macbook to the party, ..but for the €2/month it forecasted for CPU only, ..i thought better of it ;) ''' Context Link Go1dfish undelete link unreddit undelete link Author: mogmachine 1: cu*om*ner.com**a=d*EwC*3Kr Unknown links are censored to prevent spreading illicit content.
I just lost 301BTC ($70,000+) on blockchain.info. USE 2FA / Cold wallets!
Today, as I was halfway through my workout at the gym, I get a notification on my Android phone: "You have transferred 301 BTC to 1HJ3tECDZA4Zpgux1qK9AXKpRYZWjXXK4" Ugh. My entire savings gone. I put nearly every paycheck into buying bitcoins through Coinbase - not one of the early gpu miners =( I had used 2 factor authentication with Coinbase, but did not have it enabled for blockchain.info, where I had transferred the coins to. Not looking for pity, but hoping this serves as a warning to anyone not using cold storage or some level of 2 factor authentication for large amounts of BTC. I am also curious if I can find out how it happened. Malware on my Android phone or Macbook?
bullish on USD. it is clear USD is increasingly popular with past hodlers of the deprecated bit-Coin. USD has gone up hugely in just the past day against the b.t.C!! in the future it is posible with enough imagination that the US economy could run on USD ! in conclusion you should get into currency (186 points, 26 comments)
