Bureau/Desk

Hi All,

I’m curious if any of you have already made your office desk smart with a smart switch or something.

It would be awesome if you could set your shared office all the way up to your height and once an hour put you in stand mode or something.

But I can’t find the correct devices or tools for it.

Depending on the type of standing desk a Switchbot can work. It has since recently an app in Homey. You can add it via bluetoot (BLE) or wifi. For wifi you need a hub.

I have a switchbot that controls my heating pump. It has an automatc stand but sometimes I want it to fill up with warm water manually. Then you need to press a button on the controller. Since it is tucked away on the attic I added a switchbot. I now can control it via Homey, Google, Siri, Alexa and IFTTT.
