This Mode Based Actions app checks the status of devices on a hub Mode change, notifies you and even changes their state if they aren’t in a desired state
When the hub changes Mode, the app will check and notify you if the device (door/window/switch/lock/garage/valve/window shade etc) is open/closed, on/off etc and also change it’s state (turn on/off/open/close) for you.
This can also act like a backup for a failed/incomplete Routine execution
- Report and change state these types of devices (turn on/off, open/close etc) individually for each Mode
- Garage doors
- Blinds/shades (with level setting)
- Delayed checking to allow time for Routines to execute or devices to change state after the Mode changes
- Custom messages and monitoring/actions for each Mode or single message for all Modes
- Audio/spoken notifications (e.g. Alexa or Sonos)
- Push notifications
- SMS multiple numbers
- Automatic push notification if there is an updated version of the SmartApp available
You can configure which devices to monitor for each mode separately and also configure notifications (push/sms) for each mode independently. You also have the option for a single notification setting for all modes with individual overrides.
This app also acts like a backup for Routines. If the routine times out while trying to lock doors or turn switches off etc, this app will notify the user and then attempt to complete the action.
So if you’re leaving the house or turning in the for the night, you would like to know if you accidentally left a door or window open. For example, when the Goodbye routine runs, it locks up the house and change the mode to Away. The app will notify you if there are any unlocked doors, open garage doors or open blinds etc at the very moment the mode changes to Away and, if possible, close them for you so you leave the house knowing that this app has your back!
