I need to setup my some basic automation in my basement. My kids always go down to my basement to play for a while and then return upstairs leaving the basement lights ON. Sometimes it would be ON for the entire day. My basement has LIFX bulbs installed. I have got a new IRIS motion sensor to turn on/off lights.
I would like to know how to do some basic automation to my basement.
- Turn on the light when people walk down to the basement.
- Turn off the light when there is no motion.
- Keep the lights ON till people are present in the basement. example: my kids will go down & play for 45 mins sitting on the floor . I wanted to keep the lights ON until someone is present in the basement and turn off the lights when no motion is detected. - I’m not sure this is possible with smartthings.
- My Basement is close to 1000 SF in size. I’m attaching the basement layout. Do i need to place multiple motion sensors in my basement for this light automation. Pls suggest the best spots to place my Iris motion sensors to get better performance.
Thanks in advance,
