Can homey do this?

So I am thinking of moving from Home Assistant over to homey just for a simpler solution, I know there are others out there that combine these but as its more simplicity I am looking for its not something I want to do.

Anyway right now in Home Assistant I use node-red and I have one setup that basically says if motion is detected then turn on the light OR if motion stops turn it off BUT if the switch (Z-Wave switch) is used then delay motion and don’t turn off light for 30 minutes.

This is very easy in Homey. You just have to make sure that all of your devices are compatible with Homey.

Oh wow quick reply. In the instance with this rule I use a Hue Bulb and Aeotec ZW100 Duo.

Homey has apps for Hue directly:

via the bridge:
https://apps.athom.com/app/nl.philips.hue

and for Aeotec:
https://apps.athom.com/app/com.aeotec

So that shouldn’t be a problem. My advice: check if the devices itself are supported (especially Aeotec, since I don’t use them so I don’t know). When you get the Homey, and are having trouble getting the flow(s) to work, just start a topic here

Can I create flows based on location? For example I have a flow in HA that when I arrive at my Wifes work it send her a notification to say I have arrived and I am waiting?

Works with IFTTT

Life 360 works perfectly for me

Hello,

Just wanted to say thank you to all for the replies, I’ve decided to go ahead with the Homey Pro and will be placing my order on Monday.

Thanks again.
