Awesome Jon, what you described on #25 from 10 minutes and on is exactly what I plan to do but with sonoff modules. I think i will use 12v over Ethernet to power the leds too and 12v relays that I will mount locally next to the sonoff 4ch modules that will have the connections from the hacked onboard channel buttons.
Your install is on another level to mine. Yours is complaint whereas I’ll be using the sonoff modules but will have a 3 pin plug to each and plugged to a gpo. Technically “not a part of the install”
I am basically going to start off as a cloud smart home and then later on employ tasmota and run the system on its own server. I have worked with cbus and dynalite as a electrician but I always employed someone to do the programming for me.
I’ll have to get my coding skills up to scratch before I move to tasmota, also can tasmota still be used with cloud services?
