I have installed several of the GE Smart Ceiling Fan switches. They are working perfectly and I can control them with the switch or with Smartthings.
I am trying to do a couple of different automations.
I want to turn on a Ceiling Fan at a specific time and then turn it off 15 to 20 minutes later. I can get this to work with Smart Lighting using “Specific Time of Day” (one time is used to Turn on the Fan and the other is used to Turn off the Fan… in the same Automation). However, if the Ceiling Fan is already turned on before the start time, I do not want it to turn off after the 15-20 minutes. There is a feature called “Only If Light in On/Off”. This feature does not seem to work as I hoped as the automation looks at the position of the Fan switch for both the Turn On and the Turn Off. This means that if I set this to the same switch and tell it to only perform the step if the switch is off, it indeed turns the switch on but never turns it off.
Is there a method to turn on and turn off a switch but if the switch was already on, I do not want it turned on again or for sure turned off?
