Motion Lighting "or" Simple Lighting, but not both?

I thought I read somewhere that a light can't be used by both Motion Lighting and Simple Lighting at the same time, but can't seem to find it.

Did I dream that? Or can you not include a light in both apps?

You must have. :slight_smile: You can use a single device (or several) in as many apps/automations as you want.

The only thing to be careful of is when one app does something that "conflicts" with another. For example, Simple Lighting can't keep a light on if Motion Lighting turns that same light off first. (If both automations are motion-based, Motion Lighting can do everything Simple Lighting can plus a lot more, so you can probably consolidate both automations there if you are looking to do so for any reason--I personally like to have as few apps as possible subscribing to the same device events to keep everything as snappy as possible, at least if it involves lighting.)

Gotta be it. Or my motion detectors just suck. But I think i have the motion lighting turning on before the simple lighting schedule ends. Need to check that, but its probably the issue.

Why am I dreaming about Hubitat?
