I have been searching for information on tips and best practices for Essentials project layout and planning, but haven't found much information. Specifically I am looking for thinks like best practices for location and zone naming conventions, device and zone locations etc. i.e. the does and don't for planning and implementing a clean project design. I am especially struggling as my home is open floor plan, and the physical location of switches do not always coincide with the location of the lights. for example switch may be in the from entry and control lights outside on in the main living room. What room and zone to I put these devices in? Where the switch is or where the light is? I'm trying to build a design that mimics reality as much as possible to the non-tech users in the house will know where to find things.
I've looked all over mylutron for training materials on this. The essential's Level 1 training jumps right into adding devices, but never talks about project layout practices. Any pointers or links to material or input would be welcome.
