I’m trying to understand the best way to have a light (in this case hue through smartthings) change intensity on a longer schedule. Example: I have a porch light I keep on at 50% from sunset to sunrise but would like it to jump to 100% for a 30 minute period of 5:30-6am. Can I simply set up a different automation for that time and my seperate sunset/sunrise smartapp will also work–or is there a better way? Thanks.
Could all be done in CoRE but running two two overlapping smart lighting automations will also work just fine and will be easier for you to setup.
If you are able to hack your way through CoRE, here is a solution to try:
Before you begin, turn on Advanced Mode by going into Settings->ExpertFeatures->Expert Mode
Auto dimmer by Mike Maxwell is the best for this.
