I’ve got my starter kit, and an extra motion sensor installed, and now if there is any movement, or if my front door is opened when the house is empty, or at night, I get a notification. So far so good. I also want to automate a light turning on and off at intervals when it is between sunset and midnight when no-one is home, and I know pretty much what I need to do to make that happen.
So what next? My first thought was to buy some light switches that toggle a light on and off but also operate on z-wave, but they seem rather hard to come by. They must exist right? I’m amazing ST don’t make one (though all of their things so far have been customer install-able).
What about power sockets? I would love to had a smart power socket so that I could toggle appliances on and off. Paying a fortune for the bulky smartthings adapter seems like bad solution.
I’d love to have a smart socket where the iron is so that if I leave the house or go to sleep and it’s on, it turns off!
Any other ideas for getting started here? I’m in £230 and I seem to have hit a brick wall!
