Virtual override switch?

Is it possible to make a virtual prevention switch? I’d like to make something like an override switch.

I want whenever (in case it’s accidentally pressed) the garage open button is pressed, webcore looks at a virtual switch to see if it is on. And only if it’s on will the garage door open.

Can webcore be programmed in this manner? Where webcore reacts to pre signal instead of post information?

it depends on what you mean by “the garage open button is pressed”.
If this is the physical button connected to the door opener, you can’t usually intercept it before the door starts opening.
If this is a virtual switch (or button) that triggers some automation to open the door, then yes, you can have another switch state as a condition for that automation.
