Hi all, I’m in the process of buying my first flat, but before I start down the automation route I want to make sure I can do what I want.
Lighting seems to be a good place to start. I’m in the UK which limits my options for switches but if I understand correctly, the fibbaro dimmer 2 will go behind any existing light switches, allow me to still use the physical switch, but also have it controlled by sensors it the app?
The scenario I have in mind for example is have a light turn on when motion is detected, use the physical switch to turn it off, come back to the room and use the switch to turn it back on then have it turn off if no motion is detected after a certain amount of time. (It’s a clunky example but I’m mostly interested getting the concept right, and keeps things intuitive for guests).
If I have a 2 gang switch, I would be able to assign a scene to the 2nd switch and for example turn on other connected light bulbs to a certain dimming level/color, maybe depending on the time of day all at the same time, as well as turn on connected plugs?
I’m aware that I may need to use webcore or something similar for the more advanced rules.
Is my understanding correct and can I start spending all my money on this ?
