I am very new to home automation and just starting to get my feet wet. I have two smart light switches. One in my bathroom and one in my master bedroom. I have the devices setup in my Smartthings hub and i am using Google Assistant to control them with simple commands. I woudl like to know, I have read that i can use these switch as buttons also to control routines ! for instance before i go to bed i can press and hold off for 3 seconds or triple tap down to execute a routine that would turn all lights off, set house to sleep mode, turn thermostat down, lock the front door. turn on security system. Then in the morning I could triple tap up and it would turn on the hallways light to 20% and start the coffee maker etc… If i put on by my front door i could triple tap down to set my house to away mode… you get the picture.
DO i need a special light switch or can any smart light switch do this? Is this called a scene button or is it a multi function light switch. So confused and not a lot of information out there to help. Any resources that might help explain this would be awesome or peoples help. FYI i am in Canada so any product links sould be amazon.ca so that i can actually purchase them
