Just got my Hub, I was going to say today, but since it now 2 AM I guess that was yesterday.
I'm trying to setup the following and can't seem to get it with either a rule or motion light.
I want motion in the hall to turn on specific lights to red and 10% but only if mode=Night and a set of other lights are all off, then turn off 15 minutes later.
I can setup a rule that gets the first part right but don't see a way to turn off 15 minutes later.
I can setup a motion light to turn them on based on motion and mode=night and off 15 minutes later but don't see how to have the condition that a set of other lights need to all be off.
What's the best way to pull this off?
Rule Machine just loves company in the form of additional rules.
Seems like you have the two rules, you just have to have the truth of one become the start/enable/trigger for the second.
In a Rule Action, (Select Actions for True (or False)) look for: Set Rule Boolean, Run Rules, Rule Actions
In that section is what you need, I think.
I think you can do this in a single RM "Rule". Add to the False Action a Delayed 15 minute action to turn off the lights with CANCEL feature. This will keeps the lights on as long as there is a new motion event within the 15 minute delay and will reset the delay back to 15 minutes.
This is not exactly what you're looking for ... but I have in my master bath our master closet - when we walk into the master bath I flip on the lights and as long as there is no motion for 2 minutes I turn them off - any new motion resets the timer.
Now if we go into the closet and my wife spends 30 minutes looking for a top to wear that motion sensor will keep the main master bath lights on - even though she's not in the main part of the master bath. Again not exactly what you're looking for - but something that might help you.
