New condo, need ideas

New condo, need ideas

Switching to a new condo in 2-3 weeks. I have a few ideas to maximize my Smart Home capabilities, but I am open to suggestions, tips and recommendations. I plan to get Lutron Light & Fan switches for almost the whole house. I have a handful of Philips Hue bulbs, but I need new ideas on where to use them, because I probably won’t use them at any point controlled by light switches. I’m going to put contact sensors on windows and in some cabinets to trigger lights. I’m going to get an Ecobee thermostat and monitor the room temperatures with hue sensors. It already has a garage door of mine, m, hopefully it works well. I have a Gen 3 August lock for 1 door and I’m thinking of getting a level lock for the front door. I have a few HKSV cameras and have planned uses for them in the new location. Nanoleaf panels will illuminate the living room well, as many would need to decently light a small living room with no lights above your head. Better recommendations? And ideas on great use cases for smart outlets? I have a few other HomeKit products, but I won’t list them all. Please send recommendations as you wish. THANK YOU!
