TL;DR how do I tie Alexa to preheat my Samsung oven. What is the funniest things you have played with/done? I have two MyQ drives-- should I waste the money on the sensors? Or just use their app? what are your thoughts? In-wall seems to be me to be the cleanest/best way to deal with the lights? Lightbulbs won’t do the fan on the same circuit, with the smart switch?
Greetings! Just built a new home and I wish I wired it better-- I’m trying to get into home automation and of course ST is the best “hub” around everyone says. So I bought that, then I THOUGHT I bought a lot of devices that would work with it. I bought two echo’s (just got them today the kids are having a ball) some blink cameras. With Rboy’s app (over all it works alright wish more features directly from blink but they are working on some they say…)
I have a fancy samsung dual oven that I have tied into ST, I have alexa recongize it— so now how do I use her to DO anything with it? I’d LOVE to be able to have my wife say “alexa preheat top oven to 350 degrees” “alexa, turn on broil on range” or whatever.
I’m also getting a video door bell that I’m hoping to tie into ST that should be here soon. I’d light to do something with the lights to make the kids calm down and go to sleep… thoughts?
also has anyone ever thought of an automatic door closer PLUS locker? I don’t know if there is such a thing but when it’s a saturday morning and things are warming up if you get my drift I’d love to be able to say “alexa close and lot master bedroom door…”
