I am a newbie to Smartthings. I am trying to get a nice structured approach to setting up rules and actions from the start.
My first objective is to find out where the “best” place/app is to do certain types of automation.
For example using my iphone as presence sensor to trigger an event when I get home is too vague as the radius is too wide to be useful. what I want say is IF iphone is present and front door sensor triggers open then do something (e.g play welcome message on Sonos. The combination of the two is the real indicator of when I arrive home and not someone else in the house.
Another example is that I have put I vibration trigger on my entryphone as a way of triggering a sound on the sonos to alert me if someone has buzzed the intercom and I am somewhere in the apartment that I would not hear the buzzer.
I want say IF the entryphone buzzes AND there is no movement in front entrance hall (i.e vibration is not false alarm) then trigger sound?
Any help appreciated
