Continuing the discussion from [Ring vs Skybell vs Kuna vs?
Interesting idea. I’m confused, though: Why would you use a zwave switch AND a an Aeotec micro ? The micro is already a controllable zwave device. Typically when you use the micro, you just use a momentary switch as the wall switch to give you manual control of the micro.
Or are you just talking about the switch controlling the light part? Because the Kuna has five parts:
Two way Audio intercom
If you cut the power to the camera, then the next time you turn the power back on it takes a few seconds to reestablish Wi-Fi connection. That means you may well not capture the image you meant to capture because of that lag. So it works a lot better if you leave the motion sensor and the camera always powered.
But then the other part of that is that the Kuna is set so that when the motion detector goes off both the light and the camera comes on. That way the camera always has enough like to make a good recording. If you put the light on a wall switch, it won’t come on if the Kuna detects something in the middle of the night. So that could be tricky.
But maybe I’m just not understanding what you’re intending. We had the Kuna our house since it was first available on Amazon, back in August, and we really like it. The only thing we’re missing by not having SmartThings integration is the ability to have the Kuna motion sensor trigger SmartThings events.
