I’ve bought a whole lot of Aquara motion sensors. The idea is to automate all the (Mi light) lights in the room, eliminating the need for pushing any light buttons. Probably some overall mood lighting for the whole room, and bright light for the area I’m moving in like the kitchen, or computer desk.
But I do want the option to override the automatic lights like when we watch movies with a projector. I have also Aquara switches I want to use to override the automatic switching.
What would be the most convenient behavior? After pressing a override button to switch on (or off) the lights do you start a timer to enable the motion activation after a period of time? Or maybe reset everything to motion activation after night? Maybe I should implement three stages of button pressing: On, off, motion activated.
I like to know if anyone else tried to completely automate the lights. And how did you handle the override behaviour. Maybe I want to make things too fancy, and it might end up in way more irritation than convenience.
