Smart Home Tip: Motion Sensing Lights Only When It’s Dark

SmartThings

I’m taking a quick intermission from posting about Kodi (any good smart home’s entertainment system) to bring you a pretty cool smart home automation tip.

Besides security, one of the goals of home automation is to eliminate a lot of the manual work we do in our daily lives.  It should relieve much of our need to remember to do things like turning of lights when we leave a room or setting an alarm when we leave the house.

This smart home tip is pretty nice because it automates turning lights on and off using a motion sensor, but only when it’s dark enough in the room to need lights.  This tip helps save energy because the lights turn off automatically when there’s no motion for a while, and it doesn’t waste electricity running the lights during the day.
