How to make schedule conditional?

Post by msambol » 29 Nov 2018 16:38

I would like to have a virtual button which I can use to indicate when I am travelling away from home, and use it to pause my scheduled events like turning on lights and opening window shutters. I thought I could use the dummy device for this, but I can not find a way to make scheduled events conditional, or to pause the schedules.

Can anyone recommend a way to do this?

Your Schedule can run a scene that can be a trigger for logical rule that depends on the Dummy device.

A bit overcomplicated, but works ;)

Thank you for responding. Yes that is over complicated, but I'll take what I can get. I didn't realize a rule can trigger on a scene, will try.

Stuff like this will unfortunately keep non technical people away from this platform.

Show me where you can easily do such a specific things.

Z-Way style is to allow it complicated and if the request becomes popular, make an app for that
