I need some help getting a rule to work or an alternate method. I installed a flood light with a motion sensor on a GE zwave on/off switch and want to be able to put it in “manual” mode so it stays on indefinitely. I setup a core rule but it seems to fully execute, or at least the last step of notification happens immediately and it doesn’t do what I need it to do.
Here is what I have to do to get into manual mode:
- Light must be on for at least 60 seconds
- Within 3 seconds turn off -> on -> off -> on
Here is what I tried:
- Create a virtual switch that I will use to enter manual mode
- Setup a webcore piston to monitor the virtual switch for “on” then perform the sequence described above on the physical switch, and send me a push notification for the last step. (See screenshot)
What happens: light turns on, notification received immediately. Lights never turn off, or if they do it is many minutes later.
Any ideas how I can do this?
