I started with Nest and some WeMo’s and ihome switches and thought I was good. Well, I am sure you all know how that goes. So I decided I wanted to expand and get a few more switches and move away from WeMo at some point. I am having a difficult time with Smartthings though.
I bought a used wink gen one hub for $12 a few weeks ago and just got smartthings this week. I wanted smartthings as it works with wemo, has a great community, and there are more devices that work. I just didn’t realize that Nest wouldn’t work and the Shclage Connect wouldnt’ have any features. On Wink, the connect can do just about everything.
Anyway…here is my current problem I am trying to figure out. With my ihome app for my switches I have them setup to come on when Nest goes from Away to Home from 4:30 - 11 pm. I want to do the same thing in Smartthings, but use our phones as sensors. I can’t find where to do that. I see I can choose sunrise/sunset, at a certain time…but where is the option to do it between a certain time? It has to be somewhere I am not seeing. My ihome app, Wemo app and Wink all can do this, so Smarthings has to have this option, right? I am sure it is obvious, but I just can’t find it.
Anyway, hopefully someone can help with this. It seems very basic, but I just do see the option.
