You can buy the codes that I show in my videos on my webshop. This saves you time and frustration and you sponsor me so that I can keep creating these tutorial videos for you.

Free lifetime updates

When you’ve ordered code before, you will get lifetime updates for free. Follow these steps to download updated versions of the code for free if you’ve ordered the code before:

  1. Log in to Ko-Fi and go to the menu.
  2. Select “Payments History” and go to your previous payment.
  3. You can download the new version by clicking on “View Details > View Content > Download”.
  4. Or, open the e-mail that you got at the time of the purchase and click the link in the e-mail to download the latest version.

Why do I ask for money for the code?

You may be curious about why I request payment for the code I develop. Home Assistant operates as an Open Source project, and there’s a common misconception that open source implies “free.” However, the openness of the source code means you can modify it to meet your requirements. Open source doesn’t necessarily equate to free of charge. Notably, some substantial open-source projects worldwide require significant funds for licensing. Developers invest countless hours crafting code and have the choice to offer it freely or seek compensation.

I am one of the few official HA content creators who has to make a living from this work. This has been a conscious choice. I want to create the best tutorials for Home Assistant, and I can only do that if I do it full-time. Unfortunately, the income from YouTube is far too little to cover my daily expenses, so I had to look for other ways to continue making these tutorials. Hence the idea of creating blueprints that you can purchase for the price of a cup of coffee if you don’t want to spend a lot of time typing code, which can bring about frustrations. Making a tutorial takes me a minimum of 24 hours of work, but many people have no idea of the amount of time required. It is impossible to create them without being fully engaged in this. This is my way of contributing to the HA community, but it has to be sustainable. That’s why I’m glad that you support me by occasionally buying a blueprint or sponsoring me monthly. In addition, I maintain the blueprints so that they continue to work with new versions of Home Assistant.

In addition to this work, I also contribute to another community, namely as a music therapist for people with mental health problems. This is also possible thanks to your support.
