New house - let's start this all over again.

We recently moved into a new house in the same Chicago suburb. This means starting all over again with HomeKit - and it also means trying to retroactively figure out the existing tech systems in the new place. August Door Lock? Up and working. Ring Video Doorbell? Seems to be dead. Ethernet? ...Maybe? There's an "Open House" box in the basement with a lot of CAT-5 coming together at a switch. We're still trying to unpack, and most of the remaining items on the to-do list are my tech items. I'll try to post any insights we may gain here as we move forward.
