Kill Scene 1 when Scene 2 runs using block scenes



Hi everyone.


Using block scenes Is there a way to kill scene 1 when scene 2 runs?


I have 2 scenes, one that runs when humidity <40% and the other runs when humidity is >=40%

  1. Scene 1 - With humidity <40% the lights off 5 minute timer scene runs
  2. Scene 2 - With humidity >=40% the lights off 15 minute timer scene runs


The idea is when someone is in the shower the humidity will increase to >=40%, scene 2 triggers which sets the off timer to 15 minutes.


The only snag I am hitting is initially scene 1 will run as humidity is <40% when the lights are first turned on, setting the off timer to 5 minutes. When humidity triggers scene 2 the scene 1 timer still completes, prematurely turning the lights off.


I have a feeling that I'll really need to get started with LUA scripting for more flexibility.


Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

LUA is the answer even it requires some time to learn it.

  • @Sankotronic I'm on the coding. Converted a few scenes to LUA to get to grips with the structure, found it's not too dissimilar to VBA.


    So I've now reduced 2 scenes to 1 scene, using if / else if along with fibaro.getValue to trigger different Timeout periods dependent on humidity values. So far no issues, when scene is re-triggered it resets the Timeout period and kills the previous timer.


    Very happy :-)
