I was wondering if someone here can help me with a solution to the following use case automation puzzle. How can I set up the following scenario:
Between 6:00 am and 5:00 pm, Circadian Daylight Coordinator is not engaged and the Hue lights are set to remain at 100% brightness with the “Energize” hue setting.
At 5:00 pm, Circadian Daylight Coordinator comes online and works as expected until 6:00 am the following morning.
So far, I have puzzled out how to automate suspension of the Circadian Daylight Coordinator by creating a virtual switch which, when turned on, suspends the Circadian Daylight Coordinator app and, when turned off, enables it. However, the dilemma of not being able to reset all lights to the “Energize” without deal-breaking side effects still exists.
I could automate the setting of the “Energize” scene for all lights every morning but, in doing so, all of the lights in my house would have to turn on around 6:00 am which will be extremely annoying for my wife and child who are still asleep at that time.
Is there a way t create this kind of automation without having to turn all the lights in my home on at 6:00 am daily? If so, how should I go about setting it up?
Thank you all in advance for your help, advice, and time!
