Best App to use to warn of high temp - UK


Some help please for a new user. Having moved to IT management about 20 years ago, I now realise how much I've forgotten! :slight_smile:

I'm trying to create a rule that detects when the internal temperature within my home exceeds 26C (I live in the UK!) and can't decide which App to use as they all seem to have gaps in the support for actions that I would like to undertake.


If internal sensor detects temp > 26C then
1/ Mute Sonos
2/ Send Alarm Scene to Phillips Hue lights (Red 100% flashing)
3/ Send Alert to both my wife's and my mobile phone - in case we are Away
4/ Announce message 'Home alert. High-temperature alert. %device% is reporting a temp of %value% @ %date% %time%' to all Sonos devices
5/ Repeat message every 30 secs for 10 mins

So far I've tried:

  • Custom Rule within Safety Monitor, req's 1,2 & 5 are an issue
  • Notification App, req's 1 & 2 are an issue
  • Rule App, req's 4 & 5 are an issue

Is there a way that I can call the notification rule from within the Rule App so that I can combine the capabilities of both Apps? Or am I just doing it wrong?

Thanks in advance

Thanks for this, all understood but I can't find 'Notify Presence...'

Edit: Sorted, Thanks. :slight_smile:
