Domoticz standby killer script

Recently I finally bought some Z-Wave equipment:

  • Aeon Labs Z-Stick Gen5
  • Aeon Labs Z-Wave LED Bulb with RGBW (2x)
  • Fibaro Door/Window Sensor
  • Fibaro Wall Plug (4x)

I've looked at several Open Source Home Automation projects before, but so far the only one that is, in my opinion, lightweight enough to run on embedded hardware is Domoticz. It's also relatively easy to configure. Can't say the same of OpenHAB, for example.

U2F on Linux

Little over a year ago I ordered 2 Yubico U2F security keys, through the Github offer. When they arrrived, I was immediately annoyed by the fact that only Chrome (and Chromium) supported the U2F standard. At that time, my main browser, did not support U2F at all, and the feature request had been open for a year, with no real progress. Sigh.

I2S audio on XPS13 with Linux 4.5

While upgrading the Linux kernel on my XPS13, I noticed that I could no longer find the option to enable the ASoC driver that is needed when the sound card is running in I2S mode. The symbol (SND_SOC_INTEL_BROADWELL_MACH) was still there, but it didn't show up at the expected location. I also had all dependencies enabled, so I was a bit surprised it didn't show up.

After looking again, I noticed this in the dependencies:

DW_DMAC_CORE [=m]=y
