Long time listener, first time caller. I’ve been lurking in the forums for a while and finally but the biullet last week and started setting up our smart home.
My question - is there a way to set up a routine using more than one cell phone as presence sensors? I’d like to be able to create something that says ‘if these two phones are not home, and it’s sunset then turn on x switches’. This would ensure that we have lights on. I ask because the lights we’d turn on aren’t necessarily the lights we’d use full time while home. It would be nice to use two phones at once, as well as a reference to a time point for an action. I don’t want to leave the lights on during the day, but having them on in the evening would be be nice.
That’s exactly the way I have it done at my house. Certain inside lights turn on at sunset regardless of house mode. More lights come on if house is in “Home” mode at sunset or is house changes to “Home” mode after sunset.
