Problem to understand how works scenes with multiple trigger

Guest cedriclocqueneu


Guest cedriclocqueneu


I'm trying to do a scene to open my blinds at different hour if i work or no.

First, i have a variable "Aujourdhui" with value 0 if i work or 1 if i'm in holidays (or week end).

This point is ok.

After this, i make a scene like this:

Please login or register to see this image.

I i work ("Aujourdhui" = 0) and at sunrise, then blinds must open (here it's only a notification by mail to test).

But this scene doesn't work :/ If i check trigger "Aujourdhui", i receive an email at 1h (hour where the variable is updated). If i uncheck, nothing happens.

Same problem with the second scene for holidays/week end days:


If i don't work, blinds must open at 9h.

Do you have an idea ?

Other question: Must i check "Start when Home Center 2 starts" for these scene, and why ?

"Start when Home Center 2 starts" ensures that your scene always works in the background, checks for triggers and activates output when all input conditions are true. If you uncheck this box, your scene will be active only when you call it through another scene or when you force it through the interface (web or app).

You also need to check the 'Triggering Variables' box if you want your variable "Aujourdhui" to become a valid trigger condition for your scene.

That should do it. If it doesn't work, make sure to save your scene (save button) at the bottom of the block window, then save it into HC2 with the blue disk on the right side of the interface, and restart HC2.

I used this type of scenes several times without any problem.

Hope this will help.
