Actually, before I figured out my streaming issue, I would run the rule at least once a week. This would allow my cameras to stream when events were being recorded. Probably because it interrupted the recording. But now that my streaming issue is no longer a problem, I don’t really run it anymore.
With that said, I have been reading all over the forums that there are others who actually do this on routinely basis. Not sure why that is, but they do.
So you use a contact sensor as a light switch or does it fire when a door is open. Asking, because I have seen 3d printed items to allow contact sensors to function as a switch on the wall and my Nephew is trying to figure out the best way to turn lights on in the basement, but they leave the door ajar because they have a cat.
I can’t take all the credit, someone else posted it & it was exactly what I needed. It’s an unfinished basement so all the lights just had a pull string. This solution makes it like a standard circuit.
@QiS I know you’ve heard similar things a million times on these forums, but when I haven’t heard is trigger>action (and a secondary trigger the only allows that action to stay active for a certain amount of time set by the user)
For instance, I currently have a rule that when someone pushes my doorbell I have certain lights that turn on and turn a certain color in addition to the wyze chime. I would love to be able to have a sub rule for that so those lights that come on for that rule and for that rule only only stay on for a set amount of time.
Currently I have to set up a rule that if lights are on for so long between time one and time two they automatically turn off. So I effectively have to turn off that rule in order to use those lights outside of the doorbell trigger.
It’s just a thought, I hope my spiel was fairly understandable here
Thank you thank you thank you yours is far more clear than my run on
Sadly I can’t take full credit. When the doorbell was first out you couldn’t trigger things with it being pressed. Someone came up with the idea for the lights because it would help people with disabilities such as hard of hearing or fully deaf. I thought that was a great idea it just needs some refinement
