I’m looking for a smart app that will randomly turn on or off based on times programs.
Currently I have switch for my front porch light I bought from Home Depot. I have it programmed to come on at 7:30, and go off at 9:30. It randomly comes on and goes off 30 minutes before or after the programmed times. It never comes on or goes off at the exact time every night. I think this is a great security feature. I travel quite often, and this switch gives my house at more “someone is home” look to anyone who might be watching the house.
I’d also like to do this with a couple of inside lights. I did manage to piece together a couple of smart apps to build one that has certain lights or switches come on at certain times when I am “away”, and stay on for a set period of time. Unfortunately this is not random, it’s the exact time every night (only when I’m away), and stays on for a set amount of time I have programmed.
I’m not even sure this “random” feature would be possible, but would appreciate any feedback
