Question

Has anyone been able to create a functioning Guest "mode"? I was thinking about making my guest mode do something like the following but is not functioning correctly.

 

everytime a guest is present add 1 to the "guests" variable

then everytime a guest is not present minus 1 from the "guests" variable

 

I already have the presence setup with a VD that finds the guests phone via Mac address.

the problem is that when it detects that the guest is present it adds 1 to the variable everytime it finds the guests phone (I have it looking every 30min)

 

has anyone found a better solution or can give some advise on how to keep a more accurate track of how many guests are present. Thanks!

I just use GuestState global variable which value is changed by Remotec ZRC-90 keypad or with VD. When GuestState is set to true then VSL scenes change light brightness and also keep lights turned on for kitchen, dining room, living room, hallway and bathroom and entrance. Also lights on our parking lot turn on at sunset time if guests are present, etc.

 

When guests leave and GuestState is set to false, then VSL scene reverts to normal lights control, parking lot light is also turned off, etc.

 

This solution with detecting mobile phones and similar just don't work for me. But pressing one button at the entrance door when guests arrive or leave is simple and good enough. Besides it is not always that we want or need guest mode when somebody visit us.

    Thanks for the reply, I thought about using a VD or a manual switch for this but I need it to work even if I am not home to press that "guest button". I am trying to get to get a guest presence sensor with mobile phones (even though its not as reliable). I am having issues with the variables and VDs. if you are interested you can view it here.
