Automation to change mode, based on current mode - new app

Hi All,

Using the old app, i used routines to change the mode and set the home monitor to away based on device locations (i.e everyone left). I also have a “babysitter mode”. This is a custom location mode that i set up. “Away” mode will not set and will not arm the alarm if the location mode is set to this mode.

I am in the process of moving to the new app. Using automations, i can change the mode to away. I can base conditions on the current mode, however…it will not let me set a condition on the current mode AND run a scene which changes the mode. The scenes are grayed out and it says “there is a conflict”.

Is what i’m trying to do not possible in the new app> The only other option i can thing of is to create a custom switch called babysitter and then base a condition on this.

Thanks

Read posts #62 and 63 in the following thread. They should give you some good ideas on how to proceed.

Unless something has changed lately, it should be possible to add the mode change to the scene after you’ve created the automation.
