Thanks for the help
This makes sense and aligns with what I am seeing, the reason I wanted to add the hub was to improve functionality (though SmartThings).
I currently have and LED controller that when switched on turns the LED strip on at 10% power.
Ideally what I want is the LED strip to come on in the evening from 5pm to 10pm at 100% power and at 10PM switch over to 10% power.
Using at my alexa control I can set the power to 10% and have an event that occurs at 10pm to limit output to 10%, the issue is that the controller is wired to a motion sensor so if its on at 10pm all will be great but norally this will be in the off state, so when motion occurs say after 10pm it will illumination to 100%
So I really need to have some control that says whenever operated
after 10pm set to 10%
