I finished a modification to the Light Follows Me that does the following two things:
- added the ability to ignore motion based on sunset and sunrise status
- added the ability to ignore motion when any specified lights are also on
The second feature is really handy because I have several lights near each other and when I turn one on manually I don’t want motion to activate the others. But when the manual one is off I do want the motion to activate the specified lights. This can also be used to remotely disable motion enabled lights by tying it to a light switch that is in a remote / harmless location such as a closet or basement. You could even put a smart switch somewhere and leave the bulb out and use that as a disable switch. I also used this opportunity to experiment with making my own App icons and storing them on the web on my own server. It works amazingly well and was drop-dead easy to do using Photoshop. Code is on GitHub here:.
