Quick question - does a virtual switch retain its state after a HE reboot/restart? I need something that reverts (or retains) it's previous state as I plan on using this to enable or disable some automation actions. Thanks!
Yes, a virtual switch will not change state unless you change it (or have that "auto off" option enabled on the device page, which will change it back to "off" within a few seconds of it being turned on, automatically).
If you do want it to change on reboot, you can make a rule that triggers on the location "system start" event and do whatever you want there.
Thanks - that's what I was hoping. I need the switch to stay as is until manually changed or changed by a rule.
