For this one I would try
Phone changes to Not Present (or Is not Present), then lights Wait 15 min then Turn Off. (Assuming you want the delay)[quote=“Coolsaber57, post:8079, topic:50187”]
Turning off the Basement lights
OMG, this drives me crazy. I have a post below asking the same sort of thing. I assumed mine was due to needing feedback from multiple sensors. Just in case yours is simpler, for some reason I have had better luck with Then If, rather than And. I doubt it will work, but you could try it. It worked for one of my other pistons.
Edit: So I have been fighting with this, and tried something strange. I added another criteria of Luminescence. (My motion sensors also do Lux). As soon as I added if Lux is greater than 3 as an additional condition, the whole thing worked. I think it must have something to do with forcing the sensor to report? Or getting the pistio to evaluate something more. Regardless. This won’t work in my basement as my Lux sensors seldom report anything more than 0 down there. But I will try somethings out and see. I don’t know if adding something that requires more evaluating will help you at all.
Changes away from Wet? I’m not sure that is an option.(There are lots of choices in the interface that don’t seem to work with certain devices) Seems like it would belong to a moisture sensor, but not the Weather tile. Maybe Precipitation in the last hour? Humidity?
I was actually able to remove the first one entirely and use Smart Lighting to just turn off the lights when it detects that both Presence sensors have left, which is really what I was trying to accomplish. I was overcomplicating it, hah.
I was doing some reading on the wiki and figured out that you can’t have two Triggers (those in the If section with a filled-in dot on the lefthand side) because they’ll never be true at the same time. I think this is actually my problem with a few of these, so I’ll have to re-think how I can accomplish this. I might just use the motion sensor staying inactive for 15 minutes as my trigger and leave the door sensor out of it.
I had read on this board that people were using that Water field as the trigger, so I wanted to do the same. I do know that it only updates once every 15 minutes, but I would think it’d still show the change to wet. I’ll keep digging on this one, but if anyone else has figured out which parameter to use to identify Rain, I’d be all ears.
Had a Zooz multi that was giving me the blues. Tried a different DTH and haven’t had a problem out of it since. The problem with me was, even though the sensor was showing motion/no motion in the app, it was not showing active/inactive in the Dashboard of CoRE.
I am a new core user and trying to figure out my first simple piston. My case is as follows: if motion is detect in my daughter’s room between 5pm and 10pm (hours she is active in room when she is at our house) then set thermostat to temp X degree between hours A and B or set thermostat to temp Y between hours C and D. The main issue I seem to be having is that I can’t seem to find a comparison that makes motion in her room true for the entire time been 5pm and 10pm. I would think it would be the “was” condition (motion WAS active for at least 1 min) however, this seems to be false even after motion. Here is how I currently have it set up.
I’m new to CoRE and am setting up my first Piston but need some help.
Turn on Shower and Bathtub light when bathroom door is closed
Turn off Shower and Bathtub light when the bathroom door is open
Turn off Shower and Bathtub light when no motion bathroom sensor for 10 minutes
How do I set this up?
I have this setup so far but I don’t know how to add the delayed no motion condition if the door is closed.
Piston Mode Else-If
Bathroom Door Contact is closed
If time is between sunrise and midnight
Using Shower and Bathtub
Fade level from (not set)% to 100%
In 5s (only for Night or Home)
Bathroom Door contact is open
Using Shower and Bathtub
Turn off (only for Night or Home)
For some reason my master lights piston will usually always set the lights to 100% untill I press the house switch again then it re runs the piston and corrects itself.
I have this piston tied to a virtual switch that gets turned on by I’m home routine. Everything seems to work fine except for the level set point. Any suggestions
Is there a way, maybe using a loop, to check battery levels on any device using a battery? I know I can individually list each device, but I don’t want to have to add each new device to the piston as they come along.
I did it by creating a virtual switch and having ST turn it on. Then I have a piston that turns all lights on (when that switch is on), waits 20 minutes, turns them all off. You can start with a wait, then do whatever you want. Maybe use webCoRE?
