I made a hot water wood-burning radiator. It's monitored and

... controlled by an ESP 32 that talks with indigo over MQTT and sends me push notifications when I need to add more wood.

Hopefully people know I have been around long enough that this is not spamming, but I launched my YouTube channel today, and since pretty much everything in my house runs on the indigo, it will be featured regularly.

S01E01 is worth a watch if you ask me.

I came here to drink milk and kick ass....and I've just finished my milk.

That was awesome. I'm so glad you didn't late the woodburning community haters keep you from your dream!
(and I see you have the auto-tracking cameras working)

Dave- i continue to be grateful for your interest!
Matt- wow, super flattered you watched! I cut the mqtt push notifications because i made the rookie mistake of having WAY too much footage. You are absolutely correct though! Camerbot 2000 will likely be the next episode. I'm conflicted about an episode on Blue Iris use- it might be too niche.

Thanks again guys!

Looks Great. Have been waiting out for your ‘launch’, after the earlier discussions
Good luck!

Wow- thanks all! Indigo will definitely be featured when I finally do the "PID tuning my wife" episode!

Hey Matt, really nice done video and project. I look forward to more episodes. Especially excited to see anything Indigo-related. How many times have we all heard something along the lines of "That looks sketchy!" from a loved one.
