Whole House Fans with Zooz Zen16/17 and Zen32

I have QuietCool Whole House fans that are connected to Zooz Zen17 Universal Relays (ZOOZ ZEN17 UNIVERSAL RELAY – ZOOZ) if they have 1 or 2 speeds, and connected to a Zen16 Multirelay (Zooz ZEN16 MultiRelay – ZOOZ) if they have 3 speeds.

I am using a Zen32 Scene Controller (Zooz ZEN32 Scene Controller – ZOOZ) to control each individual fan.

I have the Scene Controller buttons set up as a toggle and have the following:

Each button is set up for a different amount of time (1 hour, 2 hours, 4 hours, 8 hours).

When you first push a button it will exit the rule if the relay was toggled off.

However, how would I make sure that it exits the rule if the relay is turned off at any time during the Elapsed Time of the Wait for Event?

For example, if it is halfway through the elapsed time of 2 hours, and I toggle it off, only to toggle it back on with the 4-hour timer, wouldn't the first rule of 2 hours still be in effect?

Of course, if there is a better/easier way to do this please let me know.

Thank you.

If I understand correctly, you are looking for button 1 to turn off the relay if it was previously on or turn it on for 2 hours it it was previously off. If this is accurate, what I would do is replace the current rule with:

IF (QuietCool Office Relay 1(off) is off) THEN
On: QuietCool Office Relay 1
Wait for event: -> elapsed time: 2:00:00
Off: QuietCool Office Relay 1

To test it, you can reduce the wait time to, say, 20 seconds and see if it does what you need.

Thanks for the assistance. I imagine that will work; I will test and follow up if I run into any problems.

Have a great day!
