I saw this asked before and you said it was planned but I was not sure if it was implemented yet and I just didn’t see it. I want to set a trigger to alert me if my gate is left open for more than 5 minutes but not alert me if it’s closed before the 5 minutes is up, is this possible yet?
Not yet. Right now, the condition is only checked at the time the rule is triggered. So if you add a delay on the action, it does not check the condition again after the delay. I’m planning on adding options to say whether the condition should be checked at the time of trigger, after the delay, or both.
Hmmm… That may be the downside to the limited speech synthesis capability, no options to control. I can add volume control support for music players, then that should do the trick. To be honest, I’m not sure why I didn’t include that before.
Oh, or the other option is to just edit your device type and hard code the volume setting in the speak method. That may actually be a better option.
Hey Greg. Have you seen this post? Since we want to keep SmartRules to only using official capabilities, this is the way to go. This SmartApp takes a multi-button device and turns each of its buttons into an individual device, which can be used by SmartRules to create rules. I’m using it with the Enerwave SC-7 7 button wall switch, and it should work with the minimote, but i’m not sure if anyone has tried it yet. Please post your results on that other thread.
Version 1.3 of SmartRules is now available on the App Store! If you don’t see it yet, it should propagate through their servers soon.
This version doesn’t look much different, but we did a major overhaul on all the stuff that happens behind the scenes. We’ve resolved all known crashes and all known data corruption issues (missing rules, duplicated rules, lost changes, etc.). If you continue to see any issues, please, let us know!
We’ve also lowered the requirement to iOS 8.1.
As always, with every new version, you are able to add a new review, so please, if you find SmartRules helpful, please take a minute to write us a review. This really helps enable us to continue adding new features and fixing your issues. Cheers!
EDIT - We discovered a bug with creating QuickTap rules in this update, so I’ve temporarily taken it down. It will be back up ASAP. An update has been submitted to Apple, and I’m hoping we can get an expedited review to get this out fast.
EDIT - 1.3.1 is live now, so everything should be good. Thanks for the expedited review Apple!
