I couldn’t think of a better place to put this than the lounge.
Ok here’s the deal for this. Yes I’m bored so here’s the game. Present something you want to automate BUT you either can’t or haven’t figured out how to do it yet.
Wait did you say CAN’T??? Ok this is a can’t because of a limitation of your control system aka hub, or skills (programming) or devices or maybe just not aware of pieces to fit together to make it work.
I’ll start. This is a scenario I wanted to do a long time ago and I couldn’t. I couldn’t because it was a lack of functionality in the control systems and pieces that connected it all together. Now IF you also have a solution then make sure you quote the scenario block and include your solution to it.
- Turn off lights when starting a movie (press Play on remote)
- Brighten lights to % when pausing a movie (press play/pause on remote)
- Turn lights off again when un-pausing a movie (press play/pause on remote)
This can be extended to include environment factors such as ambient light and such but those are easy
- This is where you people come in. I have my solution now lets see what others come up with.
