    I have a 220 volt GFCI breaker on a boat dock that runs a pump, dock lights and security cameras. I live about 60 miles away so anytime we get a lightning strike nearby, especially on the water probably, it trips the breaker. I have to have a GFCI because it is required for a boat dock. I want...

    Hey all, I’m currently living and working in East Africa. I'm looking for a wifi-compatible smart switch that I can put my house security lights on and can be controlled from a phone app. I'm traveling out-of-country soon and want to be able to turn my security lights on at night from anywhere...

    Hi, I am hoping this is actually simple and easy, and don't mind being told that it is! I need to get WiFi out by our pool and to detached garage. Right now we have AT&T Fiber service (1G bi-directional into house!), and an ASUS AC3100 router. The Asus router does an "OK" job getting WiFi around...

After a major wind storm, I lost power at a vacation home where the Mysa thermostats are located, which shut down the wifi as well as the electric baseboard system. The vacation home is 100 miles away. The power...

    I have a cabin with city water supply. Even thou it is city water and I have new pex piping, I would be more comfortable shutting the water off when I leave. Just in case there is a leak. We use the cabin mostly on weekends and the main shut off is in a crawl space next to the meter. I have...

    Hi all, new here. Looking for a smart/wifi switch that meets the following criteria, wondering if anyone here may know of one: 1. Same company sells both dimmers and non dimmer switches, or better yet, dimmers where the dimming functionality can be disabled on the software end for forward...

    Hi, I wanted to know how I can send data (voltage and temperature) from multiple wemos d1 minis to a raspberry pi 3 running InfluxDB. If this works I want to send this data to Grafana. Unfortunately I know nothing about things like that and have nearly no clue how to do that. I managed to...

    Hi everyone, We have an x10 "powerhouse mini controller" that used to control our underwater pool light as well as a 1hp pump for a waterfall. The x10 is about 12 years old or so and for a while now it will no longer turn on our pool light. We used to be able to plug it into any electrical...

    I am looking for a solution that will allow my ecobee thermostat send a signal to a wifi switch to turn off the boiler. I like that it will stop calling for heat while I am "away" but I would like to have the boiler stop heating the water as well. 1. first question: is it a bad idea to mess...

    I have just bought a house with an existing 2-zone (front, back) 12V landscape lighting. Would love to replace the transformers with wifi capable ones that I can control with an app on my cell/tablet, preferably either on iOS or Android. Bonus points for a multizone (2- or 3-zone) transformer...

    I'm a homeowner... looking for some information and opinion. In December I had a Mitsubishi Mini-split system installed by N.E.T.R. Inc. in my home in Massachusetts. The system consists of seven indoor units and two condensors. Not a small system. I am quite happy with the units.... but...

    Hi, I've just moved house and am trying to extend my home WiFi to our garden outhouse. It's a solid brick building, so I'm not expending a consumer wireless extender to work well. In my old house, I used TP-Link powerline extenders (using the ring main) to extend the WiFi coverage and this...

    Just about a week ago, Comcast turned on, an unknown to me, transmitter in the modem I am renting from them. It would broadcast a free, (to Comcast users), WI-FI connection for Comcast users to use. If someone was not a Comcast user, they could pay about $20 a week to use the hotspot in my home...
