Hey there! I recently “upgraded” to the smartthings adt hub…possibly a mistake but we’ll see. Anyways, in my V2 hub and app, the gentle wake up smartapp was an integral part of my day. As it turns out, this new hub has very few smart apps available…gentle wake up is not one of them. I’m familiar with coping/pasting smart apps into my IDE and adding a smartapp that way, but I tried to play around with webCoRE and it’s a bit over my head.
So here’s my question: is it possible to grab the gentle wake up code from anywhere and copy it as a custom smartapp? Or, are there any parallel apps that would achieve the same thing (dimming up for a period of time )?
Sidjohn1, I think that’s where I’m limited… I’m a copy/paste user (and extremely grateful for this amazing community)…that said…I have no idea how to replicate that in WC. When it was Core and had an easy UI, I was more comfortable. webCoRE is just a bit out of my realm…
Schedule looks doable, and the 70% over 30 minutes is just a matter of adjusting the ending value and spreading the steps… Pausing it, my first idea would be to create a virtual button that and testing for it while looping - button could be pushed through the ST app or via Alexa/Google Home, etc. I’ll tweak the piston a little to give you some ideas.
Does this allow for you to stop the dimming once initiated? This was the issues I had with webCoRE. I also like just using the Gentle Wake up because it is a switch that can be turned on/off at any time.
You did…Thank you so much. Honestly, thanks to everyone for helping to look into this and explore options. I have installed the smartapp and it’s working 98% to what I like! The only thing i’m hoping gets added at some point is the ability to have functionality with colored lights so that it can dim at 1% blue to 50% warm white. I’m sure that’s a much more complicated process…for now…i’m more than satisfied and stoked about all the other smart apps too. Thanks!
I’m just getting started with Smartthings - I was hoping to use a Gentle Wake Up type automation with a Honeywell Smart Dimmer switch that I just ordered. I guess I don’t know what I’m doing yet, hopefully I can figure out what you guys were talking about in this thread…
