All of these are cool ideas but... I think you need to establish a pattern of lights that are the exact same as when you are home. That way someone scoping the neighborhood cannot tell if someone is home or not. We did this with ST and one time our neighbors called us while we were away to invite us over thinking we were home based on our lights - I considered that a success.
Also there are degrees of intrusion - if someone is just walking up to the door then that is one thing if they are attempting to go around back or enter a garage that's another. I really like my ring floodlights for this.
Interestingly I was working with a client who had ST and Ring and did NOT want the lights to come on if the doorbell rang or motion detected and he was not home. The reason was there was a mentally challenged person that kept coming over and would not leave if he thought my client was home.
With ST I had dogs barking through my SONOS in my basement. Have to say it was pretty awesome. Accidentally scared my daughter's babysitter one night when I forgot to disarm and she went down the basement steps..
