Temporary stop of night routine?

Is there a way to temporarily stop my night routine where my alarm is activated overnite? Te reason being is my inlaws stay some overnites and I don’t want to delete the routine or stay up until smh arms the house and stay up late to disarm it

How is it currently being armed? Time? Presence? Luminance?

Armed by time

Do you use location modes? In general, I mean, not necessarily for this automation.

Yes I use locations but smh arms regardless of locations

Just create an “inlaws” mode and restrict your routine to “don’t automatically do this…” in the inlaws mode.


Sounds good. Where would the mode be located?

It used to be possible to add/change modes in the ST mobile app. But they removed that feature from the app.

Now you have to login to the IDE.

They seem to enjoy making core features of the hub and automations more of a PITA for us to access, I guess.


When you say mode you mean armed(away) disarmed and armed(stay) that type of mode?

No. Those are smart home monitor armed states.

Location modes are “home,” “away, “night,” etc. Those are default modes, it’s possivle to add others as I mentioned.


Found it. Whats the easiest way to activate that mode?

You can create routines that change the mode to home, guest, etc. One routine per mode change, that is.

Then you can trigger the routines manually in the mobile app, or with a button controller, etc. Whatever works for you.
