Having just welcomed a little one into this world, we’re not only getting to grips with looking after the little man, but I’m also learning more about my HA setup!
I had everything cobbled together “just fine” for two grown adults, but given babies demands are different, things like light timers causing you to be in the dark at 3am etc show my setup isn’t quite right.
Is there a way to perform different rules based on whether the light was manually triggered as opposed to being triggered by say a PIR?
Currently I have a combo of ZWave Light Relays and PIRs, and HUE bulbs.
For example, I would like a different rule to trigger if the light switch is manually pushed as opposed to the PIR causing the light to go on.
I can’t picture this being possible in my head, as for example my Qubino Relay, is either ON or OFF (AFAIK), a manually switch press would simply “sendCommand(ON)” (as would the PIR – if Fibaro PIR detections motion, then secondCommand(ON) to zwave switch).
Any ideas? If none of this makes sense. File it under baby brain/trash
I guess one way would be to disable all light timers in specific rooms between TimeA and TimeB.
