Trying to combined 2 Rules into 1 Rule.
We have 5 Rules that I want be able to "Pause" and "Resume" using a virtual switch. These Rules makes announcements when there in motion in our yard using the Ring cameras.
When we our doing yard work, I want to be able to turn On a switch and Pause the Rules that make the announcements. And when we are done, just turn the switch Off and Resume the Rules for the announcements again.
I have 5 different Rules set up for each of my Ring cameras, that work just fine.
Each Rule announces the name of the camera when motion is active, on our Sonos, and Alexs devices........
(1) "Motion in your Back - Side Yard".
(2) "Motion in your Backyard Alert".
(3) "Motion at your Driveway".
(4) "Motion in your Front Door".
(5) "Motion in your Left - Side Yard".
What I have done is created 2 Rules using a virtual switch, ("Ring Pause" - Motion Switch).
In Rule #1 when virtual Switch is turned On, it will Pause all 5 Rules....
Ring - Motion - Back - Side Yard Alert.
Ring - Motion - Backyard Alert.
Ring - Motion - Driveway Alert.
Ring - Motion - Front Door Alert.
Ring - Motion - Left - Side Yard Alert.
With Rule #2 when the virtual Switch is turned OFF, it will Resume all 5 Rules again....
Those 2 simple Rules works just fine on their own.
When creating simple Rules, I'm fine. But when come to creating more complicating rules, that is where I get lost.
I have tried 3 different times to make Conditions Rules when the virtual Switch is turned On or Off, but all 3 has failed.
All 3 will Pause the 5 Rules just fine when I turn the virtual Switch ON, but when I turn the virtual Switch Off they don't Resume.
Here are each of the Conditions Rules I tried.
I would be very grateful, if you could show me the correct way that it should have been created.
