Overall Review

I’m still trying to set a better routine to accommodate my activities. I spent a lot of time this week completing my first blog post and setting up my TrueNAS Server. On the other hand, I neglected my studies in Japanese.

What I could do better in February?

Follow my planning for the week/day and do not avoid doing the harder task.

Have Home Assistant fully functional at home with some automations concluded

I completed the setup of the system, but I thought that it would be much easier to transfer my Home Assistant config to TrueNAS. I found out that the Home Assistant TrueNAS plugin uses “Home Assistant Core”, a version that doesn’t work with my setup.

What will I do to overcome this issue?

I’m studying a way to install the “Home Assistant Supervised” version on TrueNAS. I expect to have it installed and working on the next week.

Total achieved: ~40%

Have a NAS server running with all our data organized

The setup went easier than expected and I’m already transferring my data. As always, I need to install some plugins yet and to fix some errors.

Total achieved: ~50%

Learn to write in Arduino and make some DIY projects

I’m postponing my Arduino studies because I’m focused on our NAS Server.
