    Put the HLG 100s in for extra rays in the early morning and evening.

    I have one of those kicking around here somewhere. Aeotec is off my list.

    The sensor I really settled on is in the US under the name Dome. The China company is Neo. They look like a golf balls and give motion, light, and temp.

    Zooz makes a multi siren that does temperature and humidity. This one has cool features.

    Lol. Damn. Well I was looking at the Aeotec Multisensor 6. Thoughts?

    I had my eye on one but after reading the reviews I don't think i'm going to go with it. Do you have any suggestions?

    Which sensors are we talking about?

    I really appreciate your help my friend! Maybe I'll update with some pictures when it's all set up.

    Smartest House is the US source for Zooz. Both the strips and Vera Plus are on sale.

    Vera uses 'Scenes' for automation. There are some free after market apps that can be installed to greatly increase the conditional logic capabilities. On Youtube, take a look at 'Vera Reactor' vids. Somewhat boring but very workable.

    Awesome. I've just been checking out some YouTube videos of the Vera interface and making sure everything I've been looking at is compatible. Looks like we'll probably be going with the Vera Plus with a couple of ZooZ power strips. Love that the power strips double as signal extenders too.

If you understand boolean logic and write some code that's even better but not necessary. There is a simplified process that allows you to create conditions as complicated as you like.
