Scenes & Automations

I used to have Rogers Home Monitoring, but recently moved and it wasn't available in the neighborhood so I went with Telus.

 

I moved virtually all my locks, sensors and switches to my new home using Samsung Smartthings as those were using Zigbee (Telus is Z-Wave). Basically I don't have a lot of devices with Telus right now.

 

That being said, I'm very disappointed with the concept of 'Scenes' in Telus SmartHome. It really doesn't have that much functionality. For instance, I'd like to automatically arm the system at a certain time when we're at home, leave lights on/off, cameras on/off. This isn't available with Telus that I'm aware of.

 

Will Telus be adding more functionality such as the options available in Alexa/Google Home/Rogers/Smartthings/IFTTT to give the it much more automation capabilities?

Hi @BobLoblaw ,

 

 

Good day. The Home Automation and Scenes should be really convenient if you have z-wave devices connected to your Smart Home Security system. So far some customers had already been syncing their Google home to the alarm system for more functionality.
