I’m new to SmartThings and need some help and direction. I would like to install some LED strips to my hall that are triggered by a sensor connected to my SmartThings Hub. I would like to be able to play with the settings of what they lights do and when after I have installed them, and I’d like to be able to control them through the SmartThings hub. I have found a few videos on YouTube, but they are mainly around Home assist and MQTT, I have no history of coding etc (other than following a YouTube video on flashing a Sonoff basic switch).
Could anyone point me in the right direction on where to start and also maybe suggest what would be best to control them with with (ESP8266 NodeMCU etc.)
