Home Assistant contains information about all your devices and services. This information is not only available for the user in the dashboard, it can also be used to trigger automations. And that’s fun!
Automations in Home Assistant allow you to automatically respond to things that happen. You can turn the lights on at sunset or pause the music when you receive a call.
If you are just starting out, we strongly suggest you start with blueprint automations. These are ready-made automations by the community that you only need to configure.
If you got the hang of blueprints and need more, it’s time for the next step. But before we can start creating automations, you will need to learn about the automation basics.
