Rooms Manager: Smarter Rooms: Personalized home automation with Occupancy



ok so add an option in rooms manager to speak the welcome home greeting either with contact closing or motion active? guessing left home announcement already works ok for you because its triggered by a time delay after presence sensor leaves?


Yep. Took a bit but really enjoying the complexity I can do with room manager.


code is in. will be available in the next release.

thanks for the idea.


updated top post with new detailed documentation and wiki link for additional documentation.

sorry forgot to update here when i updated on the ST forum.


from the other forum … dashboard for one of my rooms on the other hub :slight_smile:


please update and give it a try with motion sensor instead of contact sensor for welcome home greeting.


will do, need someone to leave and come back. will give update


3 hrs and no ones left and come back yet? throw them out in the cold :wink: /jk


it hasn’t worked, but I think it might have to do more with the “speakers” I use. I use chromecast DTH that allows me to play notification to my google minis around the house through webcore. Might not be compatible with your DTH.


super cool, how?


well if ST can play to the speaker the app will be able to play as well. where can i find this chromecast DTH you are using for this?

need a better way to handle exhaust fans in bathrooms … humidity alone is not enough … you know why :wink:

anyone have an idea on delayed off for an exhaust fan … kind of what logic might work?



this looks pretty decent :slight_smile:

Room Occupancy DTH is not showing on ST Github REPO only room manager and child.


its there under devicetypes:

install it from the My Device Handlers link on ST IDE.


General lighting question for a room:

Not sure if I am just missing it, but is there a way to set a rule to turn on a light when room is occupied at 15% and dim to 100% over x amount of time?
