I’m having some issues I assume others have. A simple case though.
I cannot get my family to use presence tags reliably, or to use their phone (at least two have big-brother location data phobia). In addition, I have one housemate working swing shift. When my housemate gets up and starts to get ready for work and go in and out of the house, I do not want to receive notifications of motion, doors opening and so forth. Same when he comes home at 2am. Otherwise, I do.
The Band-Aid to this that I’d like is tell me about motion during these disjoint time slots:
Between 8am and say noon
Between 10pm and 2am
from 3am to 4am
This would allow for the comings and goings of the family, and still notify me of unexpected activity. Is this feasible? I thought of building an app that set Hello Home states and then tied all of my objects to essentially this Boolean. is there a better way?
In the future, ideally we’d get something like a machine-learned model that could optionally only send notifications for things that were out of the ordinary, potentially with override rules. That may be too much to ask though of a community feature ;-).
