Hello, I'm Mat and I run a couple of different businesses here in London UK. I have a varied educational background from music to photography to computer science, and I love to automate things and bring technologies together. I don't consider myself a natural coder, but I do love building things. Right now I'm building a house (literally. As in, right now my hands are currently very damaged and dry from handling cement all day!), but I also love building IT systems, IT networks (for customers), widgets, modules, and advanced automations. My use of Node-RED at home is pretty varied, from my lighting management control system which consists of a database of light fittings, lighting zones, and light scenes all configurable from Dashboard, to interfacing with InfluxDB & Grafana for automated hot tub chemical readings, 3D printing integrations, funky addressable LED automations, custom heating and audio system integrations, and even a basement sump pump management system with alarm notifications. I love a good automation, that's why I'm here!
