Just an idea here … Is there a way to have a pause option in the Smart Lighting App and possibly in routines. Let me explain
I have set up a light in my garage to turn on when the door is opened. Works great all the time as even during the day the garage isn’t the brightest of spots. So the problem…during the summer when in the garden or having a bbq we leave the garage door open to hear the music from an old stereo in there , also access to the fridge etc . Thing is I don’t want the light on when its not needed … so I would like the ability to pause an automation when not needed. Now I tried using the Smart Weather app and the illuminance option but that doesn’t work very well particularly during low light conditions in doors
I could use timing options but i would have to change these regularly I am thinking… Also other routines I have which normally are great but on occasions such as guests visiting they are not needed so a way to pause these would be great.
My hive system as a holiday mode, which in a way is the same just the time gap that’s different.
If we could have a pause or snooze feature that would mean I don’t have to delete the automation and re-create each time.
As I say just an idea !!! Thanks
