I have, in the last week, purchased the smartthings home kit, and also 22 Philips Hue Devices consisting of 12 BR30’s, 9 A19’s, and a lightstrip plus. I will be purchasing several more motion sensors. So far, I have 3 multipurpose sensor on my 3 main entrances to my house, and I have the motion detector set up in the hallway to my kids rooms. All working fine, but not getting as much automation out of them as I know I could. I have all of my bulbs set up with the hue app, all working fine.
Now, I want to integrate these to platforms, to have lights turn on and off in certain situations. For example, I would like it if, when my daughter wakes up, after a certain time, and comes out of her room, the bathroom light turns on. Because I know, that the only reason she would get up in the middle of the night, would be to use the bathroom, and the hallway that my motion sensor is in, leads directly to the bathroom, and they are within feet of each other.
I would also like to do some other motion, or time based automation with lights, but I don’t really know where to start. So I am asking for help. Either ongoing help via these forums, or to hire someone to do it for me.
I am probably capable of figuring it all out, but If I could get some help on things that I have been reading about like virtual switches, on/off tile, etc., I think It would really speed up my process and prevent a lot of mistakes.
I also plan on getting an Amazon echo to integrate that as well, as soon as I can get my hands on one.
Thank you in advance for anyone who is willing to help me,
