The Adafruit FunHouse is the ideal companion to your Home Assistant setup. You can send not just the temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure using the onboard sensors, but you can also map the attached buttons, slider, and capacitive touch pads to control different parts of your home. You can also use the PIR Sensor to detect motion.

This guide explains how to configure your FunHouse to work with Home Assistant to send environmental data, trigger home automation events using the onboard sensors, and even use the embedded DotStars to emulate an RGB lightbulb that you can control with Home Assistant.
