(Photo by John Hall Custom Homes) If you are low on space, but you want to have that mud bench, a combination drop zone may be the best idea. Instead of having one large mud bench, consider splitting the space to accommodate keys, mail, and phone charging devices. The Chicago Bears have been living with the consequences of passing on Deshaun Watson. That’s one reason they might trade for the Houston Texans quarterback.

The yamaha platform allows you to control Yamaha Network Receivers from Home Assistant.

Discovery notes

  • If the discovery integration is enabled, all units on the networkwill be discovered using UPnP.
  • For receivers that support more than one zone, Home Assistant willadd one media player per zone supported by the player, named “$nameZone 2” and “$name Zone 3”.
  • If you specify host manually, you must enable network standbyon your receiver, or else startup of Home Assistant will hang if youhave your receiver switched off.
  • In some cases, auto-discovery fails due to a known bug in thereceiver’s firmware. It is possible to manually specify thereceiver’s IP address or via its hostname (if it is discoverable byyour DNS) then.
