Is there a way to have a routine trigger another routine? Or is ther a way to have a routine run when the mode is set to night?
Yes, but you have to use a virtual switch act as a gobetween.
Routine A turns on the virtual switch
The virtual switch triggers Routine B via a smartapp you’ll find in the marketplace:
(“Home phrase” was the original term for “routine”)
And Routine B turns off the virtual switch again so that it will be ready for the next time.
If you haven’t created a virtual switch before, here are the instructions for that:
Thanks for the tips. I see what you are going for with the virtual switch. I got my virtual switch set up but I have run into a problem with the “switch activates home phrase” smart app. If I don’t specify a routine to run when the switch is off, it won’t let me save it.
But I do t want to run a routine when the switch is off. I simply want to run a routine when the switch is on.
