Disable Switch based on another switch being on

I would like to disable a switch or prevent it from turning on if another switch happens to be on. Any thoughts on how to accomplish this? I can't figure this out. Thanks

Do you mean you want to disable a rule that's on a switch based on the status of another switch? Restrict a rule from running based on status of another switch? Or do you want to prevent a light from physically being turned on? Sorry for the 3rd degree. I'm just trying to understand what path you wish to take with that.

Unless your rule uses an actuator to move a switch cover into place, I don't see anyway to achieve this using RM. The best you can do is turn if off immediately after it is turned on (if the "other" switch is on).

So I have inovelli red series switches and was wondering of I could disable local control thru rule manager

As far as I can tell, "Disable Internal Relay" and "Enable Internal Relay" has to be done physically at the switch (by pressing the config button 8 times).

You can do it thru hubitat

If you can do it through Hubitat, then it might be available as a Custom Action for the switch through Rule Machine.

I will have a look. thanks
