I am losing my brain trying to get this working:
Program an activity button to toggle on/off 3 plugin dimmers.
What I have tried:
- Have the Harmony activity (set to be independent from other activities) manually turn on/off all 3 dimmers.
- Have the Harmony activity (set to be independent from other activities) manually turn on/off 1 simulated switch, with routines that turn on/off all the real dimmers in SmartThings.
Both of these had the same result… remote would turn on the lights, but I could not use the remote to turn off the activity… remote off or subsequent activity presses did not turn off the lights
- Simulated button press:
failed miserably as Harmony failed trying to read its “state” on add even though it is a button
So, is there any way to get a Harmony Smert Control (note this is not the home control which I now wish I had) to toggle lights on/off with repeated activity presses? I was hoping a button concept that would trigger some smart code that would smartly turn on/off…
Any help would be great.
I thought this was going to be the easy thing… turns out the smart functionality, turning lights on with presence after dark, etc was simpler to figure out.
