Right now you can set up a Hello Home Action to trigger automatically if a sensor goes off. But using the mobile app only you can’t trigger one to start if a binary switch is turned on or off.
Hello Home Actions would be so much more powerful for noncoders if we had this while retaining all the other Hello Home Action functionality. For one thing, we’d then be able to use IFTTT to trigger them, including changing mode.
Ideally it would be great if we could also create new virtual switches within the mobile app as well without having to install a custom smartapp. But even without that, being able to make HHA’s triggered by switches, not just sensors, would be great.
Also note that these switches do not have to be light switches, so the Lutron patent doesn’t have to come into play. This could be a virtual button controller, and all would be well.
