Hi All - I’ve been a ST user for many years and have some quite complex routines etc. setup, why am I telling you this? I’m a little embarrassed to be asking this basic question but it’s driving me nuts.
I’ve made the migration from classic to new (this was not easy, I have a pretty grumpy wife right now!). I’ve managed to get most things working again with one really basic exception.
I have a couple of automations that simply send a notification if something odd is happening when the system is “Home”, “Away” or “Night”. For example I wouldn’t expect doors to be opening or closing if we’re away - but the cat might trigger a motion sensor.
I’ve setup the automations for mode “Away” as a pre condition, then ANY door contact opens or closes. My issue is that this fires even when in “Home” mode??
The only way I can get this to work is to set the automation to “Away” as a pre condition and ALL contacts open or close, this just doesn’t make sense to me? To test I can then add “Home” into the automation pre condition and it will trigger for home too.
Am I missing something really basic re using the home status as a pre condition?
Where I’m using it in more complex lighting routines it seems to work how I would expect e.g. unless I’m in this mode, don’t do anything else?
