It has been waaay too long since we had a Community Highlights blog.

Honestly, it is my fault. And then the month of “What the heck?!”
happened, and one of the raised WTH topics was:

Where are the “Community Highlights”?

Bas, and all the voters on that WTH topic, let’s resolve that
WTH topic right now!

A nice way of closing our birthday week by showing some cool things our
community does while resolving a WTH. 🥳

A nice side project

OmegaX-NL shared a nice little project on our subreddit, that really
fits the new style of working that many of us have to adapt too during this
pandemic.

It looks great, OmegaX-NL! Does it work for the kids?

Nice side project! from r/homeassistant

Illuminate your stairs

A regularly recurring project is the illumination of the stairs.
It can give a nice, futuristic touch to your home. Good illumination of the
steps also greatly improves safety.

Winter is coming, daylight will become shorter; it might be the time
to take care of some proper lights on the stairs outside.

JayBigGuy shared an excellent blog article on building stairs
connecting his driveway with the deck, of course, full of smart lights.


A scan of the sketch/idea of what Jay had in mind of building.


And this is the end result, nice job there Jay!

Jay was not the only one, debsahu added some lights to the deck steps as well!

Thermostat with a wow factor

Thingsbeliketheydo shared probably one of the prettiest thermostats I’ve ever
seen. Using an old cell phone and a frame from the dollar store, he turned
Lovelace into a beautiful thermostat. 🤩
