Hi, looking for some advice please … Is there a way to create a routine to switch on a wall socket for example, that can be linked to the smart weather app. I want to control the the number of times a day a wall socket is switched on depending on the weather. So if its hot (above a certain temp) or cold below a certain temp the socket is switched on accordingly.
I am using it to control a water solenoid valve for watering plants …
Thanks for any help
CoRE is probaly the easiest for your use case.

Hi , Thanks for the reply… I did consider this but I was worried if you install core it alters the main Samsung rules engine… is this correct ?
Incorrect. Each app is its own entity. The only thing you need to account for is conflicting rules across multiple apps.
Thanks but it wont install … I do the usual code and paste the code into a new smartapp in the IDE and it just locks the IDE out each time … Cant seem to find any instructions either ??

Ok now all I need to figure out is where to select the outside temp options which I cant find … but will take a good look
Thanks anyway !!
