In this post we can see another wonderful integrations we can do with Home Assistant, as geographic location can have our family simplest way. We can have a map and see where they are all, define zones as Work, Fitness center, House Suegra, ikastola… automations as well as receive alerts when someone enters / leaves some area and much more!
Another possibility that we can give to Home Assistant is to put smoke detectors, these are wireless powered by a small battery and communicating via RF any notice, there are many types and cheap enough, by barely 5 € you'll make sure nothing burns in your home or office! So cheap we protect, and at the end we will see how alert with Telegram if there is smoke.
If we want to put motion sensors and perform actions on the basis that detects movements, we can use these sensors IR Chinese cheap feeding a pair of batteries, They are small and sneaky… In this document we will see how add them in Home Assistant and how to configure some actions, for example, if we are not at home, as to send us a message notifying a movement Telegram, or turn a certain time LEDs for lighting.
In this post we will see everything you need for your Home Assistant or Hassio you send notifications to mobile via Telegram. Something really interesting if you're putting motion detectors or sensors opening doors / windows and want you arrive ads, for example.

Get in on the march! The first step in my case (after having installed Home Assistant), will centralize and receive all RF signals with the fabulous Sonoff RF Bridge; then send the Broker MQTT to ride on Home Assistant sensor data. That is, the Sonoff Bridge in this case heard by RF and broadcast on Wifi to Hassio any data that interests us.
