Notify me when switch on for X minutes?


(Ryan) #1

I’ve searched my mind out and can’t seem to find what seems like it should be pretty straightforward.

If a light is on for a given amount of time, I want it to notify me, not turn the switch off. I see how to turn a switch off if it’s been on for some amount of time but, just in case someone is still in the room, I don’t want them to be left in the dark. I just want a notification so the person who forgot to turn it off, if not still there, gets a reminder to turn it off.

Sounds like you haven’t discovered the CoRE smartapp yet:

What you want is about 1% of what this amazing app can do!!

I am using CoRE to turn a light on when arriving home after sunset and turning it off after 10 minutes. However, I don’t see notifications or texting in CoRE. The wiki doesn’t seem to cover that either. Am I missing something?

It’s an option under ‘add task’ when defining your ‘THEN’ section. Scroll down.

Ah, found it. Didn’t realize I had to use the location toggle. Thanks Robin for the help!

Should be available under devices as well as when using the location toggle.

It is for me??

Or maybe it’s because I have ‘expert mode’ turned on in the main settings?

I don’t see it but I don’t have expert mode enabled and I’m obviously not an expert with this yet.
