Welcome at Gadget-freakz

We ❤️ Gadgets and Smart Home Automation stuff!

With brands as Yeelight, Xiaomi, Oclean and Blitzwolf, there is always something to review! We use Home Assistant and Domoticz as smart home automation platform. We like to integrate as much as possible, sometimes with a native integration, sometimes with a hack or trick. Zigbee is our favorite protocol and we have some nice tutorials for Zigbee2MQTT. We have also some nice Tuya articles.
