I think most of the apps are self explanatory but if you have any questions regarding any of the apps please ask.
One thing to note:
As some of the base code has been changed around restrictions etc I advise you to open each app - both parent and child after update and check your settings then save.
I'm sorry, this is a pain, but it shouldn't happen again now that the base code has been updated
There are also new versions of ‘average all ‘ driver, ‘wu custom driver’ & ‘Weewx with external driver’
Enable/Disable app with external switch toggle allows switch selection
Reveals option for:
Allows app to run only if switch is ON/OFF
My assumption is that the option for ON/OFF is to indicate if the app should be restricted if the switch is OFF (default) or ON (if toggle enabled)?
It doesn't seem to work like this using message central? Doesn't appear to matter which position this toggle is in, the app doesn't run with the selected switch ON?
Edit: Further experimentation seems to reveal that if a switch is selected to enable/disable the app then the action is disabled regardless of the switch position irrelevant of the second option or the selected switches current on/off state.
Ok... maybe I should have explained this restriction better.. @Royski Roy, can we do something extra for this please?
Ok.. the first in-app switch turns on the useage of a switch or not..
Even if you have something configured then switching the restriction off is the same as if you never configured anything there..
So to use a switch restriction.. enable the restriction.
Next configure your remote switch device (virtual or physical) that you want to use to remotely enable/disable the app
The next in-app switch that appears gives you the ability to enable the app when the remote switch is on or the remote switch is off.
If this in-app switch is enabled then the app will only run if the remote switch is on
If the remote switch is off then the app will not run..
Obviously the reverse works if the in-app switch is off..
If the remote switch is off then the app will run, if the remote switch is on then the app cannot run..
OK... MAJOR THING TO NOTE
This is what screws things up..
IF YOU DON’T TOGGLE THE REMOTE SWITCH THEN THE APP DOESN’T KNOW IF IT’S ON OR OFF!
This is what throws everyone, unfortunately I cannot set a ‘default’ as some people have the remote switch on to allow - some will have the remote switch off to allow.
I use this configuration EVERY day, all my messages can be remotely disabled with a virtual switch I use called ‘All Speakers’
The ‘all speakers’ virtual switch is automatically turned off when my wife and I leave the house, when we go to bed at night and a whole host of other times..
I hope this explains things better..
Don’t forget TOGGLE THE REMOTE SWITCH!
Throwing this in here so if someone else does a search they can find it. Hue rooms(groups) have an alert feature that flashes bulbs really fast. I search for alert, Hue alert, hue flashing, hue group, etc. I couldn't find anything other than using RM and virtual switches, of course I should have just checked Cobra apps first. Cobra's Flasher app lets me do this.
