I have setup 4 different Modes based on different times of the day, Morning, Day, Evening, and Night. I have different routines that run when the Mode is changed to one of those settings (the Modes are changed via a timed routine).
I also have our phones setup as Presence devices that set the Mode to Away if we all leave and to Home if one of use comes home. Both the Away and Home modes run other routines. The problem I’m running into is that when we come home and the Mode gets set to Home, it messes up the routines that would have ran with the Morning/Day/Evening/Night routines.
For example, today we were out and about (Away) and came home at 7:03pm and Presence set the Mode to Home like it should. However, my Evening routine would have ran at 6:30pm had we not been Away and I would like for Presence to know that it should change the Mode to Evening based on what time it is.
Is there a way to do that? I’ve found a “Set for specific mode(s)” in the Presence SmartApp, but I can’t figure out what that is supposed to do.
