  1. Can you turn the background music down please or turn it off altogether

  2. Nice. Woke-up kinda early to The YouTubes telling me to watch a new #homeautomation video. 😏

    So. Do you think that #HomeKit will offer similar functionality for ‘conditions’ in future releases? IOS13?

    While I understand that using a 3rd-party App isn’t really all that big of a whoop in the grand scheme, I just have issue with it being the necessity…
    Perhaps (probably) I’m just too lazy, but it seems like a hassle/annoyance to have to use multiple Apps to configure what (I believe) is a function that would be commonly used scenario.

    Maybe my expectations are too high?

    Also – can you offer a reminder of the manufacturer of your motion sensors? I’ve been considering adding a motion sensor(s) and a water/leak sensor to my #smarthome – but don’t want to have to add another Bridge to the system…
    I’ll likely just go with #Samsung #SmartThings, as they are supposed to work with the #LutronCaseta Bridge – but I’m open to other suggestions.

    Oh. Yeah. Congrats on your 1500 subscribers!
