New here and not at all sure where I should post, there are quite many categories. Please advise, or move if inappropriate. Thanks.
I have yet to receive my first C-7 hub, hoping any day now, migrating from several legacy units. I have with them tried to make an automation/scene that acts differently pending on time of day/night and motion. Easy you may say? Please keep reading. How would you guys solve this with just one automation? Is the Hubitat up for the task?
It should be able to control a lamp like so;
When OFF and triggered by anything but motion (such as a switch), and time is between X & Y weekdays: – dim-level set to 30%, and stays on at minimum 30% until manually OFF or by other timer.
Turn light on by movement
When OFF and triggered by motion at night between time X & Y weekdays: – dim-level is set to 30% and turns OFF after Z minutes
Raise light level temporarily on movement
When ON and motion detected between time X & Y weekdays: – dim-level is set to 50% and back to 30% after Z minutes
It would probably be easy to create separate automations that do one of the above at a time, but how do you make sure they don’t interact/interfere or block each other? Therefore I would like it to be one automation handling it all.
