Is there any way at all to have more than one Mode? I need to be able to track multiple “states” across my SmartApps, states that don’t relate to each other and whose permutations makes it impossible to store everything in a single global state.
- HomePresence: ParentHome,TeenagerAlone,NobodyHome
- TimeOfDay: Day, Night,Dusk,Dawn
- Security: Disarmed, Arming, Armed, Tripped
- DoNotDisturb: On, Off
I should be able to set each of these ”global variables”/“ModeSets” individually and use their present value in any scripts. This is incredibly easy everywhere but with Smartthings….
Has anyone found a way to track virtual states across SmartApps at all? Maybe with a Virtual Device?
I’m really getting discouraged with SmartThings - after almost a year, I have been able to do less than 5% of what I could do with MisterHouse and X10. I expected a learning curve, but not total roadblocks with simple concepts like global state variables.
