Abode Alarm Triggered

I have the Abode Alarm. I want to turn on lights when the alarm goes off.
I can't find where that might be

I have this working using a virtual switch using IFTTT integration, however I believe it would be possible using the community abode integration available on HPM by using the timeline state but haven't figured it out. Hopefully someone has and will post as I would prefer to skip using IFTTT as the "middle man".

Hope this helps

thanks. i am hoping it can be done with timeline but not sure how.

If no one else chimes in, I would assume it would be easiest to deliberately trigger the alarm and then see what the timeline event reports, then use that as a rule machine trigger using "custom attribute".

you are probably correct. i will give a little time before i resort to that thought
