To be honest I have little use for it lol… I had to move home and rent out my smart home to tennants… but I did want this before I moved and I’m going to set it up for my tennants.
I wanted to be able to quickly set my alarm clock from my iPhone (via the iOS widgets for regular presets or a ST tile for unusual times). I then wanted to have things happen before the alarm goes off like heating, hot water etc… and slowly ramp up lights (same as gentle wake up but via webCoRE). At alarm time, a siren can be used, or turn on TV/Radio using Harmony.
If I had an Android phone I could link my android alarm to IFTTT to ST, but not with iOS.
The Gentle wake up app is ok, but you can’t set the alarm times or activate / deactivate the alarm with webCoRE… you have to gointo the smartapp. It also gives very limited actions, unless using a simulated switch as a middle man.
If anyone ever brings out a decent, mass market ‘smart’ alarm clock that integrates with ST, then that’ll be the way to go… but for now we have this.
Working on adding days of week now.
