Simple Lighting Switch to Disable Restriction

Can you please add a new restriction to disable a simple Lighting app rule via switch? Pretty please? Rule Machine and Motion Lighting both have a switch restriction and Simple Lighting does not.

I use simple Lighting where I can vs rules and I want a simple way to distinguish being on vacation vs away from house. A virtual switch seems to be the easiest way to accomplish this versus another mode. I have certain automations that I want to disable when we are away from the house for longer periods of time and I want my thermostats to set to away mode only when on vacation. Since rule machine doesn’t have a “changes from” condition, there is not an easy way to distinguish between away and vacation modes, if I went that route. But definitely open to ideas.

This will be in the next release.
