I’ve got an idea for a new automation I want to build … but it will hinge upon how far the presence sensor tags will register.
Specifically, I was thinking about affixing a presence sensor to the bottom of one the trashcan that our local waste company comes and empties out twice a week. I’d obviously have to find a way to do it securely so that it doesn’t come off while they’re man-handling the trashcan into the garbage truck itself … but what I was thinking was that on the nights before trash pickup, I could have a SmartApp which would trigger when I do the “Good Night!” action and see if the trash can presence sensor can still be seen (i.e.: it’s still in our garage) and if so - tell me through Sonos “It looks like you didn’t take the trash out…”
Has anyone tried to accomplish this?
The distance from the front of our house, to the curb where the trashcan waits to be picked up … is probably about 75 feet.
