Is it possible to build an entirely open source smart lightning system that combines free and open source software with open source hardware? In this presentation Leon will share his experience in designing open source hardware devices using KiCAD for controlling LED strips and their integration in the open source home automation platform Home Assistant through the machine-to-machine protocol MQTT.

Practical examples using GNU/Linux distributions on Raspberry Pi, the MQTT Broker Mosquitto, the Paho and piGPIO libraries will be provided. Furthermore, the presentation will include details about reading data from various sensors and their setup in Home Assistant.

The presentation is appropriate for open source enthusiasts interested in home automation, engineers, students and even beginners. No previous knowledge in Home Assistant, MQTT or KiCAD is required.
