Reusing Devices in a Smart Home Design

If multiple smart home features in a room can make use of a particular device type, a single device can be used to fulfill the requirements of all such features.

For example, if a particular location has Devicebook Lighting, with motion-based lighting enabled, and also has Devicebook Security, with motion detection enabled, then motion sensors used for one of the two features can be used for the other feature as well. 

This saves time and money because fewer devices need to be installed and set up.

When devices can be re-used between solutions in this way, Devicebook will let you know automatically during the Add Devices flow, and ask if you'd like to re-use devices or select new devices.
