Does openHAB2 support the idea of Presets?
A preset is a group of actions.
For example, you may have several light bulbs (LIFX, Philips Hue etc.) around your house. With a single command you activate a preset and the lights are set to a predefined configuration, ie. the kitchen and living room lights turn on at 50% while the bedroom and outdoor lights turn off.
Presets are not limited to lights but can be an action on any Item Type.
Presets can be created/modified and removed.
Presets Vs. Rules
- Presets are a group of actions. They do not include Rules within them. (eg. Night Preset is Turn Light 1 & 2 ON)
- Presets can be assigned as the Action of a Rule. Rules contain a trigger, condition and action. (eg. At 8pm activate the Night preset).
