My Setup at Home

This post will serve as an introduction to others that will follow. I will try to remember to update this publication to add a reference to the new ones but I can't promise I won't forget. Meanwhile, feel free to use the tags at the end to scroll through related articles.

Let's begin #100DaysToOffload publication no. 2, shall we?

What computer-like devices do I use and what do I do with them?

Let's try not to forget anything:

  • personal laptop
  • work laptop (currently home because of the pandemic, otherwise it usually stays at the office)
  • smartphone
  • tablet (iPad Air 3 with Apple Pencil)
  • media consumption (Plex, YouTube)
  • note-taking, annotating documents, sketching
  • accessing my recipes (I use Paprika)
  • writing, sometimes
  • Raspberry Pi 3 model B+
  • Pi-Hole
  • Home Assistant*
  • Monitoring of the other things*
  • Synology NAS (DS216play)*
  • Backups (personal laptop and Raspberry Pi)
  • Plex
  • "smart" TV
  • Play Plex content
  • "smart" speaker
  • Play smartphone music or smart TV sound
  • a set of connected light bulbs, plugs and wall switches*
  • Automate some things like "don't kill your eyes in the bathroom at night but see where you pee during the day"

At this point, you should have a global view of the devices I own and use daily. This will be a valuable reference for later posts when I talk about how these devices and services integrate. I'll especially focus on items marked with an asterisk (*).

This post feels slightly hollow but I consider it's necessary to properly introduce the next ones and give a bit of context. Hopefully, the following articles will be denser.

The next story will probably be about my Synology NAS and what I use it for.
