I’m hoping to get some ideas on what people are doing to trigger events once they get out of bed in the morning. I’m not currently on a schedule–it’d be easy if I were, obviously–and I usually wake up anywhere from 7:00 AM - 9:30 AM.
I’ve got a SmartThings motion sensor in my bedroom, which wouldn’t really be much help in deciding whether I’ve actually gotten up (vs. just rolled over in bed). I haven’t been able to find any sensors that can be placed in the bed (I’m thinking something along the lines of a Z-wave pressure sensor that could be placed under the mattress), and I haven’t been able to brainstorm a way of telling that I’m awake and ready to get going. There are several events I’d like to have happen once I wake up:
(1) turn off my white noise machine (I’ve got it connected to an Aeon Labs power switch linked to the ST hub),
(2) send a WOL magic packet to turn on my desktop PC (via SharpTools and Tasker running on my phone),
(3) turn on the kitchen lights, and–if it’s before sunrise–turn on my bedroom lights.
…plus anything else I can dream up. Any ideas on how to tell that I’ve gotten out of bed? I could tie a virtual switch to my Amazon Echo and just tell it to turn the switch on, or make a routine in the ST app, but I’m looking for an automated solution.
