I purchased a smart bulb (TP kasa bulb) and replaced my traditional light bulb in my bedroom. I am currently using a traditional switch for the light bulb.

I had my phone linked to the light bulb to control it remotely. However i realised that in order to do so, i have to keep my traditional switch on all the time.

Everytime i leave my room, i will conveniently flip the switch to turn off my lights. Which does not allowed me to automate it unless i turn it on again.

How do you guys do it to optimise the automation for your home?

Generally, I dont use smart bulbs for automation. I automate through the switches, in part for the reason you describe.
