1.      Smart Led Bulb and its function:

Smart Led bulb can be configured with Amazon echo, Alexa or your smart home Google app. Every Morning at 7 am when a light next to your bed slowly turning on into cool white in 30 minutes into full brightness. It makes you wake up comfortably from your bed when it’s the right time. For this automation you can use smart Google home app . From your app you can choose which lights you want to wake you up, how long to turn on for, and what brightness. That way it is much more comfortable to wake up and feel energized by the cool white temperature to white.

2.      Set up your Routine:

Well, you can schedule your routine for rest of your day from waking up time to sleep time through features including in Amazon Alexa. For this purpose, you will need an Echo or an Echo Dot. To create a routine in the Alexa app just click on Routines in the left slide out menu.

3.     Motion sensor Configuration with work routine

You might have observed that by standing in corridor lights get on and when you leave the corridors they turn off automatically. So, using the same technology of motion detector we came up with the idea to set up routine of work and do multitasking at the same time. So, when you walk into the office to answer to your emails, motion sensor triggers the routine to have your calendar items and news read to you. That way you can get some of your multitasking done while working on computer.  For this you would need an Echo, Smart Things hub, and a motion sensor. It integrates very well into Alexa Routines and Google Home Assistant

4.     In a Rush and Want your Bathroom free?

When everyone is going to get ready in the morning and you might be waiting for someone to be done with the bathroom, have a smart light change colors when the bathroom is occupied. Well, for this idea of automation, you will need a contact sensor and a smart bulb. You could use any smart light that is IFTTT compatible though. Use IFTTT and say if the contact sensor is closed then turn on and change the color of the light. If the contact sensor opens, then turn the light back to white. To have the light that changed color goes back to normal you can use IFTTT to have it only run at certain times.

5.      Music and smart speakers:

While coming home from dropping of the kids at school, if you are home alone, your home music will automatically be playing. On contrary to this, if wife and baby are home, it won’t play music especially if the baby is asleep. For this one I you can use webCoRE in SmartThings. For most of the smart things we have used Alexa routines but since If you want to only play the music preferably webCoRE is recommended. If you want music to play any time you come home then just use your phone arriving home as the trigger for the Alexa Routine and have the action play music.

6.      Temperature control sensors:

Having the Ac not run as much as saves a lot of money. However, controls the air temperature by turning a fan off and on could be annoying. The smart thing motion sensor has a temperature sensor built-in that can automatically turn on the fan if it starts getting hot and turn off the fan after it cools down the room.

7. Door bell Camera:

Among many diy systems, we have managed to make this smart home security system for your home that is doorbell camera with light synchronized. In this idea of smart home automation, Door bell video shown automatically. For this, connect a Ring doorbell to the brilliant light switch and it will automatically show the live video feed from Ring on the Brilliant screen. Once you connect them it just works so that’s pretty awesome.

8. Smart lock and vacuum cleaner for air:

If the door lock is open, it will automatically lock and the robot vacuum will start cleaning automatically. This automated system requires connection and configuration of your smart lock and your vacuum cleaner. As soon as the door gets lock, the vacuum will start cleaning so that before coming home, you don’t feel like dust in the air.

9. Water leak and Smoke sensors:

Water leak sensor will notify you when there is leak. So, it is must in your home if you have decided to professionally installed the smart home system. You will get the notification of small things that you usually ignore before they exceed the limit when it can explode. Water leak sensors and smoke sensors which are also known as CO gas sensor detect the gas leakage and will give command to your vacuum cleaner to evacuate the dust in air. For this purpose, you need to have a Google nest hub or any other smart home hub installed so that all your devices could be configured at one central point.

10. Smart Thermostat:

You can use Google nest hub for this purpose as it makes it pretty easy to set to away mode. In the main home menu of the Nest app click on the little gear or cog in the top right. You can select “Home/Away Assist” to select your phone as a device that will set your system into away mode. To make your air not run while you are gone, go back to the main home screen in the Nest app and select your thermostat. Click on the settings (top right gear or cog button) and make sure “Home/Away Assist” is turned on. Most people might know this already but it’s worth mentioning.
