Using scenes

Question

Guest Kuuno

I have stumbled Into something that looks like really simple thing but i cant figure it out

Simple scene: turn lamp on when light level is < 40%

This works ok but during the evening when i want to wach a movie, sit in the dark or do whatever the light keeps coming on as the level is less than 40%.

how have you bypassed this?

In scenes there is place for scenes but that does not work jet i think

There should be an option that when light is turned off manually then scene does not run until x parameter is met.

  • Create a predefined variable with two states, on and off. Add variable to your scene's condition (light <40 AND variable == on).

    Now you can create separate scenes just to alter the variable. You can run them manually or set them with timers for evenings

    Of course you can disable the scene alltogether in the scene configuration, but if you need the quick solution accessible from mobile devices with client app - variables are a way to go.
