Sensors can only be used with the gateway, you can add as many sensors as you like and create rules to involve both sensors and conditions. You can also set the rule to activate on any condition being met or all conditions being met.
Place a motion sensor and a smart bulb in the bathroom.
You create a rule so the light turns on when motion is detected and time is between 6pm and 6am.
Alongside this rule you would create another that will turn the light off at any time of the day if no motion has been detected for 2 or 5 minutes . Great for power saving
