Notify me when based on presence without modes?


#1

Now that new modes aren’t supported, how to I set up a Notify me when based on when certain people are home? I want to monitor a motion sensor in a room, but I only want alerts when certain people are home (but not me). My three available modes don’t fit into this category, and it appears modes are the only way to constrain alerts.

A new mode a be created in the IDE. Click on your location, go down to modes, create new mode. I use CoRE to create automations based on modes.
