I have a few Ring Floodlight cameras, and have them flash a few Philips Hue globes around the house a different color depending on camera. It all works fine.
Problem is if i go in the yard to work the flashing would drive the wife nuts, so i managed to make a virtual switch (called Flasher) and then only flash the light if the switch is on. So i can say “Alexa turn Flasher off” to disable the flashing or turn it back on. Again all good.
However when i turn the virtual switch on it also turns on the Ring Floodlights which defeats the purpose of automating it by voice when i have to go in the app and manually turn off the light on every single Ring floodlight.
I cant wrap my head around a way to enable/disable the ST automation for flashing the Hue lights without effecting the Rings floodlights. Any idea? Thanks.
