Deepstack AI looks like a poker bot judging by google? I would have tried something like OpenCV first, no?- Blue Iris, with integration for serving up camera streams to HA (work in progress). Next step is to get Deepstack AI working for object detection/differentiation.
Interesting - didn't know you could do it locally.The netbook I mentioned in my post above also has an rtl-sdr dongle for monitoring aircraft transponders. We are a couple of friends that share the data between us and don't upload to flightradar24

I seem to work best when I see what other people have done and then copy/borrow/steal some ideas. Let me know what you have in place, and what you have planned.
My level currently it probably at the "Amateur Enthusiast", and also my automation \ smart home project(s) are still missing the key WAP (Wife Approval Factor) so it's sometimes hard to get ideas into action.
Currently In Place:
- Home Assistant running on an Intel NUC on Hyper-V
- Paradox MG5050 Alarm with IP150 module (and integrated into Home Assistant)
- Ubiquiti Unifi -> CloudKey 1, USG, 24 Port POE Switch, multiple AC AP's (and integrated into Home Assistant)
- Blue Iris software running 5 IP Cameras (and integrated into Home Assistant)
- Samsung Galaxy Tablet (which I am planning on mounting somewhere inside to run Home Assistant)
- The Garage Door is operated by a Paradox 2WPGM - This can be done via either the Paradox remotes, or by Home Assistant
- The Garage motion sensor also activates a Sonoff Basic in the garage to turn the garage light on when motion is detected (i.e. when I walk into the garage) and it will turn off after 5 minutes.
- I have 3 spotlights in the garden that each have their own Sonoff Basic that will turn on at night and off in the morning
- I have a borehole and a water tank, I'm have an ESP8266 and a distance sensor measuring the water level in the tank, and I've made a flow sensor (on the same ESP8266) but need to cut the pipe and install it.
List of things to do:
- Pool pump on a Sonoff POW R2 - I actually hooked this up the other day, but after completing it I touched the pool box and got shocked. Back to manual.
- Irrigation - This is my next project. I have a 8 channel relay board (hopefully arriving today) and will connect it to an ESP8266\ESP32 to turn on \ off my existing sprinkler valves. Will also be adding a Nextion display to this when I can find one so that it can be operated manually (if required)
- Light switches - Goes without saying but over time I'll be replacing the light switches with smart switches, but this really isn't a priority for me.
- Intercom - My current video doorbell broke, and it's on my todo list to get sorted. Ideally I want someone to push the buzzer and my tablet or phone will ring and be able to open the gate.
Think that's me, I've also done some Node-RED automations to do some notifications etc
I can confirm this works nicely, I had DeepQuest AI hooked up doing object detection. Worked like a treat. I was running this on a spare laptop but needed the laptop, so this is temporarily on hold, but have ordered a small i3 machine to do the BlueIris and DeepQuest work (should be here next week).Blue Iris, with integration for serving up camera streams to HA (work in progress). Next step is to get Deepstack AI working for object detection/differentiation. This will arm at night when the Paradox panel is armed and using Deepstack it can ignore dogs but trigger when it detects People or Cars. Much less prone to nuisance alarms (in theory, I need to test this)
I've just made an ESP32 + 8 port relay to replace my existing (non smart) RainBird (the solonoids etc are already in place). Will physically do the replacement tomorrow (and clean up the HA dashboard)Garden Irrigation

The part that I couldn't get was to get it to trigger my alarm if it picked up a person when the alarm was activated, but I didn't spend a massive amount of time on it.
‘Awesome thank you. Now I’ll actually put the effort to try it out. As far as triggering the alarm, I’m in two minds about it. I want it to arm when the alarm is armed (which is just enabling an automation in HA). But I’d rather have it flash my bedside light to wake me up, or maybe get Alexa to start screeching, especially in the beginning till I know it’s reliable. Triggering the alarm may not even be what I want to do at that point... I might want to visually verify that there is an intruder and then take the appropriate measures.
Not for HA. I've got a powerful server on the way which will run a handful of VMs.I seriously don't think you should be running HA on a Pi over Wifi. That's just asking for pain. At the very least it should be hardwired with a static IP.
I've got 2x of each but haven't used them yet. Personally more comfortable with Pis but think it'll be a good learning exercise. Plus I heard of something called ESPHome...but haven't figured out how that fits in to the picture yetHave you thought of using ESP8266 or ESP32's for IOT \ GPIO?
