Here's the idea.
Home routines with a workflow design view, and considerably more triggers (given the size of the ecosystem with all of these compatible 3rd party apps & devices...), allowing for more expansive if/then and/or conditions and true automation.
I'd rather do it natively within the home app instead of hacking it together bass ackwards.
