  7. That's a really good idea Beau. At first glance, I don't know of any Smart Home Automation specific products, however, there are some semi-commerical ideas out there: http://otodor.com/ from Skylink (I'm not sure if this business is still legit). If there is a way to connect this device to a automatic switch, you could make it work. But this has opened the door (pun intended) to make something happen at AYL...
  8. Is anyone having issues connecting with Teckin, Gosund, or any other Tuya Smart Bulbs in the Smart Life App? I had a question posed to me, so I thought I should start a thread.

  13. Hey @MNA1966, Really good question. I gotta say that Samsung is working on a ton of stuff this year. They are really working on integrating Bluetooth into everything else (cars in the future, etc.). The word on the street is that you can do it with some MQTT action. Some people have been using Raspberry PI and HASS to find out (over my head a little), but here is the reference comment in the Reddit r/SmartThings community by: https://www.reddit.com/user/hawaiidesperado/. That was two years ago. You know, the Samsung is leading edge in communication (5G, ioT, Bluetooth). I think they really want to get their Samsung Galaxy Home off the ground. They could probably take out some really good Bluetooth devices. Some evidence they are working on everything to wake on BLE - they got some work to do.
  14. Hey @Nige, Really good question. Thanks for asking the question. I think there are tons of people (including me) that want to change a light color to red during certain security settings using SmartThings. Gonna talk to some people (always welcome if people beat me to it). Kind Regards, Alan
