I have been living with my current HSM alarm lighting settings for about a year now. Something I have always felt I am doing wrong is controlling the hue lights. I use about 25 hue lights for the alarm.
When the alarm is triggered my sirens go on, all lights go on to full bright and several other actions.
When my disarm rule runs it turns off the sirens, switches the mode, sends a SMS and also turns off all lights.
The problem is when I forget the alarm is on after a bottle of wine and open a door to check the gate is locked. I hear my chime go BEEP for 5 seconds telling me I am about to wake the whole house up. When I hit either via a Key FOB button (triggers Disarm rule) or my Sharp Tools dashboard (same Disarm rule) the following happens: alarm goes off with sirens, lights come on a random times all over the house, after a few seconds they start turning off only to turn back on. This goes on for maybe 20 second until the finally stay off. All the while I am watching a lights show and trying to turn off my bedroom lights so my baby does not wake up. It seem that if I use the hue app to turn off the lights it only makes it worse to I try to not dot that.
My method of turning on the lights is a Groups and Scene setting. I captured the lights at the desired setting and then activate the scene as part of the HSM Intrusion Home or Away settings.
To disarm the rule I again use a Groups and Scene configuration this time setting all lights to OFF.
I am happy to include any screenshots of the rules and did not do so here to avoid image overload.
What is the best way to rapidly both turn ON the lights when the alarm is activated and also what is the fastest way to turn OFF the lights for the Disarm action? Again, all lights are hue lights no other brands.
