I have lutron shades that Has its own activity, aside from the activity that turns on my entertainment devices. I also integrate with the amazon echo. I can open the shades with the harmony activity and close them too. I have a trigger in ST that can open the shades but i dont know jow to end that specific activity without turning everything off. Any ideas?
It sounds like you need to add your blind commands to your other activities within the Harmony app. You can add any device you want and have it set to on (or off). So switching to the activity, Harmony will turn on any necessary device and turn off any unnecessary ones. Keep in mind, you can add a device just so it’s kept on.
I do a similar thing. I added the additional devices to the Start and End activity settings.
It’s my understanding that activities that only have home control devices don’t impact entertainment devices. So if you have an activity that just turns on some lights, you can initiate that while watching tv without it turning off the tv.
I think we’re talking semantics. I have multiple activities running too, but not by the definition of an activity within Harmony. In my activities I tell which devices to turn on and which to turn off (so I leave the AV devices I want on). It works great.
Hi, I guess this works fine with one of the “Smart Home” devices in the menu, but not with my non-smart IR device (curtain e-rod). So when I close the curtains, the TV turns off.
Is there a way to get my curtains IR activity to run at the same time as “Watch TV” ?
Hello Sticks18, I’m new here using Alexa and Harmony Hub… I Would like to know how did you Add a Fan in Home Control? Because when I try doesn’t show any options that I can use for this Device!! Take a look the print… Thanks
In your screenshot it doesn’t look like you’ve connected Harmony to your Smartthings hub. You need to do that first, so you have access to devices connected via Smartthings. Then you should be able to select your fan. Zwave and ZigBee fan devices usually look just like dimmable lights in Smartthings, so Harmony will see them as such. Just know that Harmony won’t necessarily know how to cycle between Low, Med, High speeds, so I used it for on/off only.
