SmartThings Automation

First, I added the Harmony Hub smart app lab from the market place.  It allows me to run activities for my living room or bedroom AV through SmartThings(ST)

I quickly jumped in and added a Watch A Movie On TV routine.  I set it to run my Watch TV activity and turn off my Kitchen lights.  I could have dimmed them but I like the lights all the way off when watching movies.

Then, I started configuring my Good Night routine.  I set it to turn everything off but the master bed room fan.  I could have done this at a certain time or many different options but manually is fine for now.  

I have to say, the abilities I was hoping to get from IRIS, are easily built into SmartThings.   More to come I am sure.
