LOL, yeah, I have been doing individual bulbs up to this point. This is def more cost effective for sure. Also have a smart lock on the front door. Next item is going to be garage door opener.

HAHA, I have had the hobby for a few years now. Just finally decided to try my hand as an electrician.

Well, just watch out for scumbags making a run for your unlocked interior door :grinning:

And congrats on passing the apprentice electrician test, LOL

Lol. Yeah. Still don’t understand that one. But hey, that’s what mages this system great. Ultimate flexibility.

Congrats - the help here is pretty impressive, isn’t it?

It is a little addictive…I replaced all of my switches years ago when we moved in (dumb switches at the time, of course). While that was satisfying for aesthetic reasons, putting in smart/connected switches is a lot more fun. :slight_smile: (And addictive.)

CONGRATS ! I remember those days… I need SmartThings to offer a support group or marriage counseling for my “sickness”… And now Amazon Alexa tells me I am currently at 112 connected devices. It is a disease!! :grinning::relaxed::expressionless::confounded::fearful:

We need to be careful not to disconnect from our loved ones due to buying/installing too many connected devices. :wink:
