On the config side, you can now store your passwords in your OS keyring or just in a standalone file.We also got a new service to reload the core config so no reboots needed anymore after changing customize settings!
Wink support has been dramatically improved by migrating to the Pub Nub API.
This allows Wink to push changes from their system to Home Assistant.
There are a couple of options available like pygame or Simple CV but I never finished something. This was a pretty rough release cycle and we had to issue two hot fixes for our core improvements.
In the past month I was thinking about ways to integrate USB webcams into Home Assistant again.
The main reason was that this would give those devices a second life and enable one to benefit from low-cost video surveillance.
We can now also control your TV via HDMI using HDMI-CEC (which works on the Pi!
) and another cool feature is the persistent notifications which allow you to add a notification to the frontend till dismissed.
It’s time for Home Assistant 0.23 and it’s full of goodies.
It’s also the release that bumps us over a 1000 tests and to 94% test coverage!
