I have started setting up simple routines using the native commands in the ST automation in the app. I have the V3 hub, latest app and running wifi, Zigbee and Z-wave devices. Most are working as designed but some times a particular automation which has been running good will suddenly have multiple devices not executing. For example I have a Bedtime automation that at a specific time locks the front door (Zigbee lock), turns off the porch light (wifi switch), turns off a Zigbee bulb and turns on another Zigbee bulb. Last night only one of the devices (turned off the Zigbee bulb) executed. Since this all worked before and I did not make any changes what could have happened? Does the order of the devices or their current status play a role in automations that involve multiple devices?
Also a few questions about how the native automation work.
- Do you need to add a condition as a check before selecting the Then device action? For example, IF at 11pm (Condition 1), Door Lock status unlocked (Condition 2) THEN Lock Door. Or can you just ignore the checking status before executing your THEN action and just say IF at 11pm THEN Lock door (even if the door is already locked).
- What is the difference and use of the ALL CONDITIONS or ANY CONDITIONS under the IF command?
Thanks much for helping me understand this.
