Ok as i read all the different ideas and programming language not to mention the IT talk CORE IFTTT and I don’t know how many other things I got a simple question to must of this community for sure. Im not super tech guy. I know nothing about programming etc. I have tried to mess with Git stuff and core stuff but frankly I dont want to screw anything up doing that. I cant find a simple walkthrough for someone that’s brand new. (Im talking like picture book style is if Im 5) I can work the app and make things happen based on what is in the smarthings app sure but Im also anal about being able to use things to the best ability I can.
For instance. when I come home I have a light that comes on for me great, However I cant seem to figure out how I can have that light shut off after x minutes. Seems like it would be in the smart app but no go there. Its set up using presense senor and the geo fence. so when IM home kicks in the light comes on. Now can I make it shut off by itself after x inutes or do I have to turn it off?
I would love any suggestions and if you have an answere please try to dumb it down for a guy that’s new to all this.
Im great at the install art and wiring etc but the programming beyond what the app came with is what I need to learn
