Does anyone know if you can set a rule that would have all your bulb flash when the Home Monitoring Alarm is triggered?
I looked at the rules and the home monitoring settings and did not find a solution for this type of action. I have not looked at the wishlist, but this does bot appear to be a capability today.
This is a good idea. This and having many other actions in the event of an Alarm would also be useful.
I went and searched the wishlist and didn’t find anything (does not mean it’s not out there somewhere, the search seems to be a little wonky lately with the new structure and tags). I created a new wishlist item it, will either get approved , linked to an existing request I may not have found or be told this already exists and I totally missed it :). Either way I will post here when that action happens.
In the meantime I have found this as a work around, using Alexa to “flash” the bulbs. Made this red alert routine:
5 seconds is the fastest I could get it to flash. Which is fine because there is some lag in the sending or receiving of commands.
Cool idea, does the HMS trigger that action?
Nope, so far only set up to voice. “Alexa, Red Alert”
Flashing bulbs with doorbell is a necessity for the hearing impaired.
