The documentation for Home Assistant can be somewhat daunting for the beginnger. By providing my configuration, hopefully it will assist you and others with their configuraiton of their own instance.
I have created tutorials for setting up various items and automations in Home Assistant. Those tutorials are available to watch on my YouTube channel in the Home Assistant Playlist. There are also tutorials available on the Home Assistant website.
