I’ve been using a motion sensor with conditions like Sunset and Lux as conditions, works fairly well so far. However I tried playing with seeing colour and level at the turn on which again worked well, until I adjusted the light level that is. Soon realised that the rule was obviously continuously running and attempting to switch on the lights all through the evening, which seems very inefficient but my main issue now is I can’t adjust the lights without the rule over writing that user setting.
So in my lounge lights come on as it starts to get dark, all good. Later as I want to either watch a film or just relax and therefore turn the light level down, the rule runs as I move and sets the lights back.
I have seen that the ‘Run once a day’ switch was removed from Smart Lights fairly recently and perhaps this might of helped.
I can’t find a setting that states only run if off. Am I missing something or is this the limitation of ST apps and their lack of conditions? Do I need to be looking at CoRE? Seems a bit fundamental to me and this can’t be a unique situation, a mate has a very similar issue with setting levels with his Sonos via ST, needs to only set the level if it was off.
Hope this makes sense and I haven’t missed anything previously asked.
