Can it be done? I have two smart bulbs, and two smart sockets, connected to google home, and at the moment I switch on lights manually using phone when I arrive home at night, but wonder if I can use geofencing to auto turn on lights when I arrive home.

Not that important the telegraphy bit was the real aim, and that works, but auto turning on would be icing on the cake.

Not sure if IFTTT would do that trick, it might. I've put Alexa on the phone cos the app (ewelink) for the relay cards is dog-slow to boot up.

@martygturner has the answer, need to see if it works, the smartlife and TCP devices set to switch off around midnight and 7 am so will not run too long if triggered, but the Wiz has advantage when it switches off it gradually dims out so not plunged into darkness, but can't find off timers on the app.
