I’ve been considering redoing the rules and have been exploring a different viewpoint than what I currently have. I’ve read some things but haven’t seen specific examples ( very possibly from my less than stellar search skills).
I was considering factoring in multiple modes. May be a morning, afternoon, evening, night, away, etc. Currently I only have home and away modes. I have based most of my rules off of events during certain time of day, sunrise/sunset, or specific times. I’m assuming with modes, I could base dimmer brightness off of the mode (if afternoon, set dimmer to 85/if evening, set dimmer to 70, etc.).
Is a workflow like this easier than basing each rule off a similar time? Or is it just another one of the many ways to accomplish the same thing? In thinking through it, I could see where some of it would be a little easier with the multi mode set up. I could also see where programming for each mode rather than a certain time could end up being more work.
