I think I remembering someone noted an option I thought about implementing but haven’t yet. They have LED strip lighting under the bed. When the house is in Night mode, that is the only lighting that comes on at a low level.
I also thought about placing my motion sensors on the floor under the bed facing out. That way, when my feet hit the floor that would detect the motion but movement while sleeping would not.
I think my biggest issue with automating bedroom lights is that these lights are “the most personal,” as in they don’t necessarily have perfectly regular usage patterns and if they turn on at the wrong time you can tick off your significant other!
And, as soon as you automate a light, the manual local control (the pull string) becomes unusable. I think I have a solve for us on this one…Flic switches. I have 5 of them and I really haven’t use them yet as I’m still trying to figure out what I want to apply them to.
But, if we eliminate the pull cord on the lights on the nightstands, then I need to use the Flics to control them when I need them on outside of an automation of some sort.
So, lights under the bed for late night bathroom runs, motion sensors down low to only pick up feet (and maybe a regular sensor in the room otherwise) and Flics to control the lights that I can no longer “touch” manually anymore.
Of course, all paper at the moment since I haven’t implemented it yet.
