1. A distributed system of home device controllers comprising:
a plurality of home device controllers, each home device controller comprising:
at least one touch control groove;
at least one wireless communication interface;
one or more processors; and
a memory storing instructions that, when executed by the one or more processors, cause the home device controller to:
control, via the at least one wireless communication interface, a set of home devices in communication with the home device controller;
collectively analyze, as a component of the distributed system, interactions of a user with respect to the set of home devices to determine a scene pattern configured by the user, the scene pattern being associated with at least a first trigger;
in response to detecting the first trigger, automatically transmit a first set of commands that correspond to a scene of the scene pattern to the set of home devices, each device of the set of home devices executing one or more commands of the first set of commands to cause the device to implement a corresponding operational configuration that is associated with the scene without user interaction with the set of home devices;
while each home device of the set of home devices implements the corresponding operational configuration that is associated with the scene, receive a signal corresponding to a user input on the at least one touch control groove; and
based on the user input on the at least one touch control groove, transmit a second set of control commands to one or more selected home devices of the set of home devices executing the scene, the second set of control commands changing at least one adjustable parameter of the corresponding operational configuration of the one or more selected home devices while one or more other homes devices of the set of home devices implement the corresponding operational configuration that is associated with the scene.
