Detect that light went on and switch off after 30 minutes?



Hi -

I want to detect in LUA that my kitchen light went on, wait 30 minutes and then auto-switch it off. How do I do that?

I know there's a feature in the 221's settings to program an auto-off timer, but with that I can no longer manually switch off the kitchen light. Once on, only the time-out will switch off the light. The normal light switch will not, and I do need that option too.

Hi Ronald,

You could use 2 scenes and variabels for that.

Make one scene that checks every minute IF the light is on THEN change the variable X with value 1. Then you create a second scene that check the same variable every minute and if it detects value 1 it will turn off the light with 30 min delay AND change the variable X to 0.

  • Duh... This probably is the easiest scene to create - ever

    %% properties

    13 value

    %% globals


    local startSource = fibaro:getSourceTrigger();

    if ( ( tonumber(fibaro:getValue(13, "value")) > 0 )

    or startSource["type"] == "other"




    fibaro:call(13, "turnOff");

  • Aren't you missing a trigger for the scene? How will it know when to check if the light is on?

    The first line in the block code is the trigger.

    If you look at the LUA code: that seems to catch if there is a trigger at all and when there is, there's an if statement (did light go on). I suspect that HC2 on each trigger that happens will run through all its IF statements so see if any apply...

    Whatever it is - works like a charm!
