If a door sensor is left open for more than a minute, id like to turn on, turn off, on, turn off, on, turn off a few light switches. If the door is not closed a minute later, blink the lights again. The lights are connected to dimmers, so the lights should also be set to 100% prior to flashing.
Ive tried flasher, flasher ii, left it open, virtual switches, but can’t figure out how I can make this happen.
Your help in reminding my kids to close the door would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks Herb! It would greatly be appreciated! I am new to smart things, about 1 week. Do you have any resources you can point me to that I could use to learn about making my own smart apps, discovering what commands/features a particular device is capable of, syntax, etc.
I think the app malfunctioned. The last two times the door was closed, the lights ended up flashing. a minute later, they flashed again, and again. Once i opened the door and then closed it again, the lights stopped flashing. The door was closed at the time. In addition, the sensor was reporting closed, in the smart things app. Any thoughts?
I had a similar experience. I thought my door sensor wasn’t working well given the position so I ripped it off and intended to reattach later but never got around to it. Now I’m thinking there’s a bug that prevents the door close event from fully executing.
I’ll take a closer look at the code in the next day or two and keep ou posted.
