With this smartApp “Dimmers Time Based Filter” you can set two different levels of brightness for your dimmers, based on two programmable periods of the day or the desired location mode.
Any turn on that you perform in the selected dimmers of your home, either manually, automation, scene or app, will be set to the selected brightness level for that period or current mode.
NOTE: As long as IDE works you can use this smartApp.
Select the dimmers you want to control from your home list.
Select the minimum Level for the required low level period (night?)
Select the maximum level for the required High level period (Day?)
Select the start and end time of the required low-level period. (The rest of the day will be considered a high level period)
If you want, you can not choose the time period and choose the location mode in which you want a low level (Night … other …). You can select both, but it can be confusing or everlap.
Enter a name for the smartApp. You can install the ones you want. if you need to make groups of lights with different periods and levels.
NOTE: don´t need select mode in the last field "Set for specific mode(s). it is default field"
If you want to temporarily disable the smartApp, turn off its toggle switch.
If you need more light level, press again the desired dimmer at the custom level and it will remain so until the next off and on event.
