I use fake switches to create certain states or conditions in my house. At the moment, I use ... -Vacation -'Dad 'Home,' Mom 'Home,' A Kid 'Home and Guest to set Presence (essentially the house is not empty today) -Sleep and -Occupation I layered these states in every automation / shortcut I created for the house, because it significantly influences what I want to happen.
