Re: RE: Re: Google Home (previously: Google's October 4th Event)

Oh no. I thought Chromecast Audio and Google Home would be perfectly in sync since it's all the same app and no BT protocol. The app only allows 200ms adjustment for groups and that wasn't enough for BT, maybe it will be for Chromecast Audio It wasn't for me. I think it's because it goes through th...

Re: RE: Re: Google Home (previously: Google's October 4th Event)

I struck out after checking every Walmart in the metro area for the discontinued Chromecast Audio. 6 in total. I should have just ordered on eBay from the the beginning. Just placed my order. Using BT with Google home causes the speakers to be out of sync and I can't live with it. Uh oh. I have a f...

USPS Informed Delivery

81976 I've had this for nearly 3 years now. It helps me decide whether I need to check the mail or not. If I don't get the email then I assume there's nothing worthy in my mail for the day. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk This is all I use mine for as well. If it is just junk, I'll wait until t...

How was it Corey? Did you get to do any exploring? That and Seattle are the 2 US cities I would like to visit the most. It barely counts as a visit really. I was at our client in the silicon valley that is in surgical robotics and just got acquired by Johnson & Johnson for around $6 billion dol...

81903 What are you using for your presence? Smartthings or life360? Smartthings. We will see how it goes tomorrow. I am of course using the new app, not classic. I have it set when my phone is home to open the garage. I assume home = when my pixel connects to the wifi. I don't see a setting in the ...

Re: RE: Home Automation

I got my smart garage door working. It was left in the house and I was trying to pair the garage opener itself, but I had to pair the hub. I paired the opener with the open sensor I have mounted on the garage. I will see if my automation works when I get home tomorrow. I also get another zigbee plu...

Re: Electrical work

I don't know how it works but it is a very common thing to not have a neutral in the box in older homes.

Electrical work

81759 I was mistaken it's a neutral that I need and don't have. Ah. I did 2 minutes of research and I'm confused. How did Corey luck out with his switches having this weird wire? Its not a weird wire. Its part of electrical code now but wasn't at some point in the past. I tried to find when that ch...

Question of the Day

Closed. It is my FU to the women who complain about the toilet seat being up. If I have to put the seat down, I will close the lid so they have to do extra work as well :twisted:

Glass, did you set up your Nest with SmartThings? It's not officially supported but the community has some neat stuff around them.

Home Networking

I got a new router and changed WiFi names. I had to reconnect all devices (34 total :x) to my internal and guest networks. When I determined which network it was going to connect to, I thought about whether there was anything internally that needs to talk to these devices. My Wyze cams talk to nothi...

The Fire tablets also work with it so you can mess with that and stash it somewhere out of reach.

80837 Corey, can I put a door sensor on Evie's bedroom and then have it trigger a Google Home to say "Get back in bed Evie" once it detects the door opening between the hours of 8pm-7am? Evie left her room 5 times last night. It was a long night. There are hacky ways to do this. I tried a...

You might be running dishes or laundry so don't want to immediately turn off. I know this is taking things to an extreme, but curious if others have done tha...
