Newbie happy so far.
Have the motion/mutli sensor set up to trip siren upon break. Got the den light on outlet to come on when alrams are tripped too.
Having issues with ST arming itself when everyone leaves or comes back. Noticed yesterday it didnt arm itself once we left. I manually armed it from the car. When we came back it didnt disarm itself, so we set off the siren. What ani missing for the geofencing to arm/disarm on its own?
I do anticipate adding some features to ST like outlets and bulbs. A bit scared of code and how the IDE works. Hoping that the items I want just add easily like the kit/siren did.
Alot of great info on here, a bit of overwhelming, any feedback on what I hope for in bulb/switch installs:
Leaning toward switch for rooms with can lights:
- Each switch will operate 4-6 ceiling can lights. Do the bulbs need to be smart as well? Or can I use regular dumb bulbs? If dumb, do they NEED to be LED? Does it matter for a dimmer switch?
Leaning toward Osram color bulbs/strips for table lights/under counters:
-Thinking of adding a few per room in table lamps, mostly for color mood lighting. Can they be set for different colors in multiple settings? Orange/Red for party time? Hook up to sensors/siren, to turn RED/Strope when sensor is tripped in Alarm mode?
Can these features work as I envision with basic ST app, ,or will I need to learn the IDE, Core etc stuff to get it to work?
