Home Assistant: Fans | Thermostats | other DIY - Oh Yeah

The main topic of this Live Stream is 'Ultimate Fan Project'

Watch Dave convert, from scratch, a standard 3-Speed Desk Fan. That note only is controllable from Home Assistant but also has local control by re-deploying the on-board speed selector. Plus add in some speed indicator LEDs

This fan can now be controlled by Home Assistant, Voice and still have manual local control... and of course reap the benefits of temperature, time of day and other automation controls.

You will see how to program a Sonoff Basic to use an 8 port expander to provide the necessary GPIOs for:
  • 3 Fan Speeds
  • 3 Indicator LEDs
  • 3 Speed Selector Buttons
