Automation that can have WHILE and not just IF and THAN

Hi guys,

I am very frustrated to see that this crapy ST application has a very, very basic conditions when it comes to automation, only IF…THAN…
It will be more helpful to have at least a WHILE between them, something like: IF multipurpose sensor is open WHILE arrival sensor is not present THAN do this…

Do you know some applications or how can apply at least a WHILE between those conditions?

@cbaumler is it so hard to implement this simple rule?


No its not hard… you just need the right tools… this write up is still valid.
