Jim -Tell me about the app. What r u using to have the app communicate with the lights and audio. The audio over ip? Or ir woth a converter to ip? What about the lights. Rxthey smart lights or isxthe transformer plugged into a smart outlet which is zwave or zigbee? Thier website is kinda vague. I’m always looking for other viable solutions.
Here's how it is set up:
The pool and spa lights were originally connected to standard single pole switches in the waterproof electrical box on the equipment pad. I replaced these with two WiFi accessible, Alexa & Google compatible smart switches (note: they require a common wire to work).
My three landscape light transformers are each plugged into individual WiFi accessible GoSund smart outlets. These outlets are all patched into a power strip I placed in a waterproof box. The power strip is plugged into one of my outside GFCI outlets. All of the transformers are set to a permanent "on" setting, so they will trip on and off whenever the outlet is triggered at the app.
My audio receiver and the Bluetooth system is plugged into another GoSund smart outlet in the kitchen, hidden away from view and plugged into the same outlet as the refrigerator. (I'll try to get a few pics of this tomorrow).
I'm using the Smartlife app for iPhone to run the entire thing. Documentation is not the best, but once you get the hang of it, you can program various zones, have it turn on automatically at sunset, etc. etc. (it pulls weather and time from the phone). You just need to first sync the outlets or switches to your WiFi network and use the "install new device" option on the app.
It's SO much easier now than it was when I was simply using the transformer timers - constantly having to reset the times and never having them turn on and off at the right times as the days got shorter was a pain. One of my programs is an automatic "all systems off" setting that will shut down the entire system at 11:30pm so I don't need to worry about accidentally leaving anything on overnight.
Here's a screen grab (bottom left) showing the dashboard view on the app. The six buttons across the top are for one-click programs. You also have the ability to solo individual outlets or switches as shown to the right.
