Ready for a home automation challenge? In this follow-up, I’ll solve challenges submitted by some of you. First, let’s make unplugging my phone a trigger for morning automations. Then we’ll figure out how to have the lights automatically turn on during the daytime, if it’s cloudy outside. Challenge accepted!
