Thank you. Just been having a play and I think that I have now set it up as you suggest. So I now have 2 routines ‘son out’ and ‘son back’.
But now I want an exception so it does not trigger at night (when he comes in at 3am !!). In the routines there is an additional setting that says ‘don’t automatically do this if I am in one of these modes’ so I have set it to Night.
BUT this is now where I am struggling to get my head round things with modes and routines.
I have just looked at the support pages but they are not very clear. I would have thought that you could specify what times you want night mode to happen?
Whilst I have typed this I have had another play. So I think what I need to do is set the default Good Morning and Good Night routines to run at a set time (so for example Good Night to run at 11pm and Good Morning to run at 7am) so that will set the mode for created routines to use.
So I think that I have it now sussed.
Hopefully son will go out for a jog shortly to test it.
Now my next project is to see if I can get the house temp to turn down when everyone leaves (easy to do) but to restore the schedule when someone arrives back (probably a lot harder to set up.)
