Maker of smart home tutorials to help people set up their own smart home with openHAB 2. Furthermore founding member of to use smart home technology to help people that really need it.

I started with smart home / home automation in 2010 while renovating our old 60s house. In 2016 I started a german tutorial blog to help people set up openHAB 2.

Because of my blog I came in contact with a pro hockey player who got ALS. I helped him build connect a speech recogonition to his KNX installation. We got friends and started a project to help people get an easier life with smart home technology. Now we have a non profit organization MyFreeLife e.V. where is a part of.

Helping people who realy need smart home technology is our passion.
