4in inlet adapter : Designed & 3d Printed

    I woke up this morning to another finished product! I created a 4 inch air inlet to air box adapter. I hacked together pieces of previous designs to achieve the final item pictured. One side will connect to a 4 in fan duct. The square side [of the adapter] will connect to an air filtration box. This is technically a prototype as this was only printed with 40% infill.

Diamond Badge : Spring 2022 Team CTF : Top 89th percentile

    Two diamond badges for the Spring 2022 semester National Cyber Leage CTF competition is an accomplishment in my book. I was extremely fortunate to have a hard working team.

    This will be a blog break for family needs. See you in a few weeks! Oh yeah, video added on 'howto' setup Home Assistant RTSP stream.

Homelab update : Home Assistant Motion sensor hardwire!

    I hard wired two Samsung Smartthings motion sensors to avoid having to constantly purchase and swap out old CR2 batteries. So far it works like a charm. 3v @ 1.0A(-+5%). Battery to adapter conversion. That's a hack. Right?

    Video coming soon. Covid-delayed.... my son has Covid. 😞

    Version 2.0, without the barrel connector, looks much cleaner and is a far better option for most. 3d printing a case is an option for the novice user.

    Approximately 2-3 times a year I am contracted to do a product 'housing' design.

    Video is complete. Editing to remove passwords & most pii. V2.0 hardwired motion sensor is acting strangely. Then again.. i'm 88.97% sure it was reporting oddly prior to being modified.

A Homelab update in May 2022

    I'm currently working on getting home assistant working at 100% now that the PLEX server is up and running. Once the motion sensor is installed I can use it for 'stepping up' current automation configurations.

    Amazon has still not arrived with the 3v adapter after 2x delays. I opted to purchase from alt seller. Hopefuly it will get there today.
