I have been working on getting the Hubitat all set up have almost all devices moved over and I am waiting on some new smart switches to be installed. While I wait, I have another project I would like to get started. On our back patio, we will have campfires and use out hot tub. I would like to add outdoor lighting that is controlled by the door sensor. This is what I am thinking.
A door sensor on the sliding door out to the patio would trigger LED string lights on. disable our already existing Arlo camera (our activity wastes a lot of the battery).
What is the best equipment to set this up? I have looked at the
Samsung SmartThings GP-U999SJVLAAA Door and Window Multipurpose Sensor as it is inexpensive and from what others have said, reliable. Can this be used with Hubitat without the SmartThings hub? In addition, I would need an outdoor smart outlet to power the lights and I would need the lights of course. Does anyone have any suggestions on a good way to set this up?
