First post, but I’ve google the forum extensively to no avail… I’m trying to use a multipurpose sensor as an enabler for the “Gentle Wake Up” Routine.
I understand how to use Gently wake up automatically via smartapp and as a device in an automation routine, but what I’d like to do is use a multipurpose sensor similar to prevent it from working. This way, if I have the day off of work, I can disable the routine simply by opening the switch, which I’d leave on my nightstand.
What I am not finding is a way to have smartthings check the status of a switch before deciding to take an action.
I am confident that I could create a house mode for this but that is a bad solution because it would potentially override other modes which also have automation actions.
