Using “Home Automation” to improve security – 2

March 2, 2012

Well, I tried it out!  I ended up controlling 3 outside lights (two sets in front, 1 in back), and 3 inside appliance plugs (2 lamps and 1 boom-box radio).  The outside lights were set to go on at dusk, followed within a few minutes with inside lights and radio “noise” going on.  Then at 9:30 PM the inside lights and radio went off, while at dawn the outside lights went off.  The sequence repeated while we were on vacation for 10 days …

Hard to say if “it worked” as a deterrent, but there was no sign of any problems… ::grin:: …
