I wanted to share my Dad hacks, as I am sure many of you have done similar things.
I've set KM to run shortcuts in the shortcuts.app to automatically turn off the lights in a given room after xx minutes. The other evening I created shortcuts for every room in my house. Let's just say I love a smart home. I am on a mission heading into 2023 to reduce my power bill. The kids, as we all may know, turn the lights on and never turn them off. Now, I have the answer. I am anxious to see how things change over the next couple of months.
This setup is vastly superior to anything I could ever hope to accomplish on the phone and works a thousand times better. I like using shortcuts as it allows me to run them directly from the phone and KM. Most actions are set for different hours of possible use.
I'm using the Tessie app (Tesla MY), which works on M1 devices to automatically warm and cool the car just prior to my school run.
Thanks for the command @peternlewis, in the topic below. So far, I've not had to use it. I had been experiencing it recently.
I was determined to work around the issue. So I wrote many of my actions again. I've not seen this message since. I rewrote them mainly to remove the use of shortcuts and switch to HomeControl Menu. I'm much more pleased with the outcome after my rewrite.
So far, and we're not on the full-year mark yet from my original post, I've reduced my average power bill by +/- $55 a month. Final calculations in December as I head into the winter months, which typically use more energy.
KM has more than paid for itself for all future updates that you'll release. Thank you for such a great product.
