Hi all,

Hoping to get some help. I've been keen on home automation for a while, have tracked it regularly and already have Evohome heating control and a Smartthings starter kit. I'm now looking to get some lighting control around the house and looking to collect thoughts on my best option. What I'm initially looking to do with the lighting control is be able to set schedules for after dark when we are away to give the impression of people at home and generally be able to control lights remotely, but following on from that I would also like to setup scenes for watching movies in the living room for example, and turning lights on as we approach the house or open doors, turning lights on/off based on motion etc.

What would people say is the best route for me to pursue?
