Awesome and consistent video. It's has a lot of important and usefull information. But please use a second tab in your browser so that you don't have to wait for NodeRed to load every time.
Hi Thanks for the great video. I have installed Node-Red on my Pi based Homeassistant, but it will not run. Any help would be gratefully received.
If the "Configuration" tab only says there's no config for you to mess with, use ctrl+F5 on your browser, that will help.
David, following your excellent lesson right up to adding and configuring a call service node. Time QLAe4H72Aq8&t=24m00s 24:00 ). Then when selecting the area - my area (Guest Bedroom) does not show. All other areas in the house show. I have looked all over HA and see the Guest Bedroom identified as an are - except in Node Red. Help - what is wrong - where do I need to check......?? (Thanks in advance!!)
Great Video, thank you David
Thanks for Home Assistant Node-RED Install Plus Examples.
A very comprehensive summary. Thank you. Very good
time range node ? wouldn`t that be easier ? also room presence using only movement sensor is quite hard and sometimes doesn`t work at all :)
This video has been very helpful. I have been debating about installing NodeRed or using the basic automations. I like the idea of being able to copy things especially when setting up switches or duplicate items even for different areas. I've stumbled on the timer issue, which I thought was able to be replaced by wait until node but it seemed a bit complicated to setup. Guess I need to watch to the end to find out how to get the timer installed.
Excellent video, clear and to the point, thanks!
This was very helpful to me - thank you! I didn't know the StopTimer node existed, and it was exactly what I needed. I have two motion detectors in a room that turn the room lights on, and resetting the motion timer was a challenge. This works like a gem!
I installed Node Red a few weeks ago and had no clue what to do even though I watched other videos. Yours was the best and most useful for a beginner. Watched what you did and added my first automation. The garage light turns on when the garage door opens then stays on with the delay off for 20 minutes.
Good explanation, but unfortunately your texts, from the nodes, are very difficult to read on the screen
Great Video! I like how it was presented.. at a good speed and showing potential curve balls along the way. Not so fast that you have to pause it every few seconds to digest or replay as each concept is introduced. I'm an HA noob and in the process of moving off Insteon and HomeSeer (which I was on for 20 years and was not without its issues of coms reliability and HSx Rpi stability). Much appreciated David!
If you know of any better/cheaper alternatives for a light sensor please let me know
The one mentioned is also a motion sensor, but I really just needed something to measure the light levels and would be weatherproof
So we were doing really well (better than any other tutorial so far) until "stop timer" in 2022.6 it doesnt seem to be available.
This is an awesome tutorial for new people to learn about Node Red. I moved all my home assistant automations to node red 3 years ago. I have over a hundred flows all linked in some way or not. I will definitely be sharing this. Keep up the good work!
It appears that right after this video was made the "Stop Timer" was removed from Node-Red. I found that the "Trigger" function can be used in its place.
any idea if this will Elgato EVE Room Sensor - Air Quality, Temperature and Humidity - Homekit integrate with home assistant ?
