Schedule Actions to Happen Randomly within Specific Time-span?

(ocpd+adhd+alz+md+hfa+fms+lol=me :)) #1

Is there a SmartApp (or any other way of going about this…still new to ST, and getting an education as I go) that will allow me to set up scheduled events to happen with various devices throughout the house, and to have these scheduled events happen randomly within a given period of time?


  • Turn switch on once randomly between 4:00 and 4:15 PM
  • Remain on for at least 30 minutes
  • After the initial 30 minute ON-period, turn off randomly within the next 1.5 hours
  • If still on at 5:45, turn off at a random time within the next 30 minutes

If there is a SmartApp for this, cool.
If this can be done with IFTTT or Tasker or anything else, or a combination of things, please let me know.

I’ve never tried this one, but I believe it does much of what you’re looking for - New App: Vacation Light Director
