Beep, Beep Beep – do you have fantom notification syndrome, you know the feeling that something is buzzing in your pocket and your phone is nowhere near?
One of the first things you will do with Home Automation is setup notifications for your IoT smart home devices, some times so many of them that your phone will not stop beeping away.  Don’t fall into this trap as your notifications will start to rule your life, and you will quickly start to ignore them!
