Daisy Chain Automations (Routines)


(Mr. Smith) #1

Would love to have an app that allows me to daisy chain automations. Perhaps up to three (or more) with a time delay between each one.

Thoughts?

You can do this using virtual switches and have each automation get triggered when the virtual switch is turned on and have the virtual switch use power allowance to turn themselves off and have that in turn start another virtual switch… But as you can see that’s all getting pretty clunky and complicated. So it can be done, and we used to do it that way, but I no longer recommend that method for anything more than a single virtual timer.

Instead, I would just jump directly to core. It should be able to do pretty much anything you can think of. Including the delays. :sunglasses:
