I'm cheap and like saving money, but Ive always been okay splurging a little bit on AC. Worth $25 a month not to sweat at night in bed.

Hello deal
Thanks! Would have jumped on it but I still have to check to make sure my existing doorbell is compatible.

I can now turn on my tv/sound bar by saying "Okay Google, turn on the tv". After that I need to still use a remote, so basically pointless.

I have 2 smart outlets coming today. If I have time I want to set up Evie's room to turn on her night light/sound machine

I miss having my old harmony that had a backlight. Impossible to see the buttons on this in the dark.

Thanks tylersucks for finding me the nests!

I need to remove the Roku from the Google app as it's too limited for my wants, I'll just go back to using harmony for voice commands.

With all the devices people have, does anyone have a dedicated SSID for all of their smart home toys? I have a router and an AP now. I could turn the Wifi back on the router and use one of the bands just for smart home things. Idk if it would gain me anything other than make me feel better

I think this is where a triband router would come in handy.

I set this up today. Fire 10 HD and custom 3D printed mount. Running Action Tiles with my Samsung SmartThings. Added my Wyze cams via Android VM running TinyCamPro
