Hello everyone, this is my first post in r / HomeKit, so please be nice! I'm working to convert my Alexa home to HomeKit for automation and scenes. In some cases, I may still need to use Alexa because not all of my devices are HomeKit compatible and have no plugins available in HomeBridge. My question is about an example routine that I set up with Alexa that I can't replicate with HomeKit. With many light bulbs and sockets in my house, I currently have a routine set up in Alexa to do the following: When I say "Alexa, it's bedtime." The following happens: - Turn off all the lights in the living room and the TV - Turn on the bedroom and fan lamps - ** Wait 5 minutes ** ** - ** Turn off the hall lamps The standby section is the part I can't they seem to reply. I don't know if this can happen with Scene or if it should happen with automations. Do you have any advice to make this possible? Not that it's entirely connected, but I configured HomeBridge with dummy switches and the Alexa plugin, allowing me to expose dummy switches to HomeKit / Alexa and manage them on both platforms to trigger routines.
