What is the most automated room in your house?


Recommended Posts

For me it's the garage.


Lamp module

Spruce sprinkler system

two garage tilt sensors.

two garage switches

Two door modules

One motion sensor

One camera

One Wifi AP


I think that is it!

Mine might be the living room in that it has a (simple, non-programmable) thermostat. Either that or the garage because it has the boiler and an electric door opener.

Dimmers Lightwaverf x 2 for zoned lighting

RGBW Milight x 2 for cabinet tops mood / alert.

Ethernet relay board for central extract control

Ping sense to TV to set lighting zone level.

Lightwaverf Mood Controller for manual overide of extract and lighting.



Honeywell Evohome zone (hydronic plinth heater) interfaced with Domoticz control. (Reacts to occupancy and outside door status)


All other rooms have minimum:- PIR / Temp / Humidity / Lighting control / Heating control (underfloor and radiators)

Other items include:-

Dawn/Dusk sensor (feeds into controller for outside lighting and internal security lighting when away)

Monitoring and control of Powered Velux (roof) windows.

Control of ceiling fan.

Monitoring of 433 mhz door bell. (Messages mobile phones and pauses Sonos)

Monitoring and logging of Electrical power.

And various other ideas not yet realised


Update:- Alexa / Echo control of lighting, heating, ventilation, Sonos, A/V all via HA-Bridge / Domoticz. (Just wish I could change "Alexa" for "Hal")

This was one of my favorite threads, even though small, on HAF. Glad that it has made it over to the new forum.  What room is your most "automated?"

I think it's the Family Room


5 hue ceiling lights and a hue light strip controlled by two wall mounted and one pedestal-based Pico remotes

5 lamps on Insteon dimmer modules

3 Insteon keypads at entry points to the room

5 in-line Insteon micro-modules hidden in covered switch boxes

3 Insteon wall switches

Ecobee thermostat

Harmony remote can control entertainment system, thermostat, and lights


...and I'm not quite done yet. I still want to replace a few legacy switches that are less frequently used.
