Let me start from the back…
Setting out what you are trying to do clearly goes a long way to writing a rule.
Absolutely… correct .and your input is very valuable…
You’d want to run your rule when evening begins, fairly obviously.
correct i just set it to 5 oclock for testing ,when live it will be changed to bedtime
But to do as asked you would also want to run the rule whenever the spots change in any way. So that if they turn on, they get forced to 40%, If anyone turns them up or down, set back to 40%.
Ok i need to explain more. i want to dim the light at bedtime ,so bathroom visits will be dimmed.
On top of that i would like the oppertunity to be able to push lightswitch and increase to 100% if needed
You’d want two conditions inside your rule -
“Is it evening?” so that the rule does not interfere at other times.CORRECT
“are the spots on?” so that the rule does not interfere if they are off - they can be turned off even during evening also CORRECT
If that’s not exactly what you want (do you really want to stop people turning them up or down during the evening?) then you have to modify your requirement.
Yes as stated above .Turning up IS relevant .turning down not so much,since its for “night light”
does that make sence ?
BTW ligths are controlled by PIR ,so on/off are automatic and only when it is dark
