Aside from Zigbee, Zwave, Bluetooth radios, what are some other interesting physical USB devices do you have hooked up to your Home Assistants?

for those of you that want to connect your homelab over wifi ( esp if you got a pi cluster) - I use the https://smile.amazon.co.uk/TP-Link-TL-MR3020-V3-Portable-Wireless/dp/B078GXZJHP/ TP Link tl-mr3020 as an AP, and i pair that with the https://smile.amazon.co.uk/NETGEAR-Gigabit-Ethernet-Managed-GS108Ev3/dp/B00N2JPKEC/ Netgear GS108E managed switch

My next 2 projects:
• Setting up Hayward AQ-CO-HOMENET AquaConnect to manage my pool/spa with HomeAssistant → HomeKit
• Setting up Ambient Weather WS-7078 Smart Weather Station w/ WiFi with HomeAssistant and Rachio, to cut down on unnecessary watering.
Looks like the $329 Level Lock, which you can buy an Apple’s website, can be easily-hacked broken into.

A software update will make Phillips Hue devices Matter compatible.
190 devices are certified, but few are available just yet.

Home Assistant has been in the top 20 most active projects on GitHub for 3 years in a row.
To put that in perspective, it’s in 4th place after #kubernetes.
We analyzed 5 billion+ GitHub events and got interesting findings about open source software, such as top programming languages, geographic distribution behavior by country or region, popular open source topics, and the most active repositories and developers.
I’ve recently set this up to modernize a 20 year old ADT (honeywell 20p) alarm system. Lots of satisfaction getting it up and running. Then exported via HomeKit so I can control it via my apple watch/phone. https://www.home-assistant.io/integrations/envisalink/
Instructions on how to integrate a DSC/Honeywell alarm panel with Home Assistant using an envisalink evl3/evl4 board.
