I live in an apartment, so I can’t change out any of the switches. I’d like to create a “easy mode” for when the pet sitter comes in.
The light in the entrance way has two GE Link Bulbs in them. My thought was that if I could tie the rest of my lights to the status of the GE bulbs, then I could in essence create a master switch that turns on/off all my lights using a single dumb switch. Once I get this working, I plan on using it only when I set my home to a new mode I have created for this
So, my first attempt was to take the latest Dim With Me code and modify it to just turn on and off. I did that and my initial tests from my phone worked fine. Of course, as soon as I get up and try to do it from the actual switch, it doesn’t work
What I need at this point is a way for all the lights to come on as close to instantly as possible when turning on the switch, and then turn all the lights off when the switch is turned off. For turning off, a I expect there will have to be a delay.That is ok, even if it ends up being 5 minutes
Any ideas are appreciated
