I have a scene named "Outside Lights" that I'd like to activate 45 minutes prior to sunset and deactivate at 11:30 PM. I assume that I should define two rules. One to activate the scene and a second to deactivate the scene.
I created the activate rule like this:
But when I go to create the deactivate rule, it seems odd that there's no companion "Deactivate scenes" option when defining an action.
Since a scene is represented as a virtual device, is it appropriate to simply turn off that scene's device in the second rule?
If using the scene device is fine for the "deactivate" rule, what is the value of activating the scene in the first rule as opposed to simply turning on the scene's switch device?
