Place routines on hold

Am not sure if there is a way to put routines on hold (for vacations and such). But there should be

So here’s what I do. I have a Virtual Switch for all of my rooms that is simply titled, “That Room” Automation.

I build my rules with the restriction that "That “Room” Automation Switch must be on.

If I want to bypass a rule, I simply turn the Virtual Switch off.

For easy keeping, I put all of these switches in a Room.

However, if you use webCoRE, then you can just goto the Dashboard and Pause that rule.


You can also create a Vacation Mode and set all your routines to not execute when in that mode


I have a “Disabled” mode and set unneeded automations to only run in that mode - for instance, scheduling for my holiday lights the other 10.5 months of the year.
