Would like to get some ideas how others have used SmartThings and see what it can do.
I got interested in using SmartThings because I wanted to be able to turn on the outside lights on my house, barn and detached garage when I return home from the race track with my 40’ trailer so I can see where I’m parking it. I wanted to be able to turn them all on at once without having to run wires from detached garage and barn back to house. Now with SmartThings it uses my cell phone as a presence sensor and automatically turns on all the lights when I get back from track after dark.
My 2 year old just learned how to open her bedroom door. First night I found her downstairs playing at 3am. I’m going to put a door sensor on her door and have it turn on the light to our room if she opens up her door late at night so we know she’s up.
