Hi, after much searching and reading a couple of confusing examples… What is the recommended way to achieve something like Wemo’s away mode where a number of switches and/or dimmers can be set to randomly switch off and on during a chosen time period, for example, from dusk until midnight?
I’d like to be able to trigger such a mode (an event?) with a single click and ideally also with IFTTT. I see that IFTTT can trigger LWRF events.
Thanks very much.
OK, so I decided to set on/off sequences within the default Away event so that various dimmers switch on or off at different times in order to simulate occupancy. This works fine.
I can start the event using the the web app, Android app or IFTTT. However, I don’t see any option to stop the event expect by using “Stop All Events” in the web app. Am I overlooking this option in the Android app?
I do see that a UDP command can be sent to stop (cancel) an event. If there’s no more obvious way, I’ll create a Tasker task to cancel the event. But, this all seems unnecessarily complex.
