About 30 however, I think I have made a breakthrough! I have about 30 Alexa Devices and about 7 Whole House Audio (WHA) that are “Things” in ST. Out of those, I really only need about 15 or so to be automated. So that gives me some wiggle room.
Each room in my home has two Virtual Switches. One for the Room and one for the Automation for that room. I can say, “Alexa, turn off blah blah blah room” and she will turn off every devices that on in that room. I can say, “Alexa, turn off blah blah blah room Automation” and that will pause any Automations for that room. (I have no idea why I capitalized certain words…)
Of course I have a master Automation override VS and the typical “All Lights”, “All Entertainment”, etc. However, the bulk of my devices are actual devices.
After going through, I see that I can squeeze about 30 more devices out of my system with some more deleting of things that are “Cool” but are not necessarily necessary.
So thanks @jkp, you given me my fix!..for now, but I’ll be back here. Oh for sure, I’ll be back.
