Looking at options for monitoring my Mom’s house. Goals…
-lights toggling in vacation mode
-turn some lights on when she arrives home in dark, light switch in car???
-motion detector (for when away, and she gets older would be reassuring to know she is moving around)
-possibly echo dots, don’t know if she would like talking to Alexa
She is not tech savvy. Don’t want to deal with light switches (older home) so thinking smart plugs and lamps
-ease of use, I spend way too much time tinkering/breaking/fixing all my stuff. Can’t have that with her place
-false alarms. I get a lot of them mostly due to dog, phone presence sensor fails, and unusual kid schedules (no smartphones for them yet)
-reading through the second home/hub/ location project topics most seem to be older. Sounds like best to create an account for her. Sharing from her to me just means I can switch to see her account/devices in my app? I would really like her devices integrated with mine, otherwise too cumbersome. I think I could bridge the two accounts with webCoRE though.
Anyone been through all this recently ? Tips?
Thanks in advance!
