How to prevent Goodbye routine from sometimes triggering

What is a good way to sometimes prevent a routine from automatically triggering? In our case, when we have a sitter at the house we don’t want the Goodbye routine to trigger when both our phones leave and put her and our son in the dark and cold haha. Is there a way to have a virtual switch that when turned on could suspend a routine?

In the ide you can create a new virtual device called Simulated Presence Sensor. Call it Sitter or whatever…

Then include it as one of the presence sensors that needs to be gone in order for Goodbye to run.

You can then turn this device “on or off” in the Mobile App.


Perfect! Got it setup and looks like that is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!
