Hi, not sure if this is the right subforum but here goes. I have been using ST for many years now and the last year or so it has just been running along. I have taken some action where needed when it comes to groovy end of live but besides that not much have been done last few years
One of my most used routines is the tasker going to bed/waking up. Basically, when phone is put on bed table with integrated wireless charger at night: using tasker to change some phone settings and activate “night” mode using the Sharp Tools Tasker Plugin. The night mode triggers scenes, sthm etc. At morning, remove phone from charger, set to “home” and change phone settings back
Yesterday, modes stopped working from Sharp Tools (I knew this was coming), so what are my options now?
Sharp Tools, subscription, http trigger? I only have to make some changes to my tasker routine right?
Tried Bixby routines, I can achieve the functionality when charging the phone, but i can seem to solve the “remove from wireless charging” in the morning
Google assistant. Not sure? Have only found the possibility to activate the good nioght routine using voice or porssibly a set schedule
Before searching further. What options do I have? Any comments to the options above?
Thanks. I’ll try it out. Maybe it is the way they word it but it sounds like that will trigger whenever (during that time period) the device is not connected to charge. If I’m not at home and the device isn’t charging I dont want the trigger to run. In tasker it is an “exit” from the trigger, i.e. unplugging. But it might be good enough. I found it strange that the routines did not contain a specific “unplug from charger”. However, the exit trigger is nearly not as important as entry. I could most likely do with a ‘IF night AND time is HH:MM then switch to home’
If your phone finishes charging at any point, removing it from a charger will have no affect though no matter what way you try it, the time based way was more meant for a short time period as i assumed it would be with you at all times, not left somewhere
I’m not sure I agree when it comes to wireless charging. For the last 5 years or so I have had the current solution with Tasker. The phone is fully charged every morning. The second I remove it from the wireless pad it identifies that and exists the task.
I have tried the Bixby solution a while now and it works fine as well. The “Not charging” trigger will only be fired when removing the phone from the wireless pad, not when the phone is fully charged.
