I’m just starting to look at reactor, and it looks like it could help with a couple of small pain points I have with my current scene setup. I do have a couple of questions, however:
Will the sunrise/sunset condition properly handle out-of-order sunrise/sunset, that is the days where, in a given midnight-midnight period, the sun sets before it rises? For example, the days when the sun sets at 12:45am, and rises at 3:30am. I’ve had issues with this using the built-in day/night tools, causing my outside lights to be on in the middle of the day.
Is it possible to have conditions in the Activities? I would like to make a setup like the following:
- Condition: certain light turned on OR motion detected on certain sensor, but only between x and y time on weekends, and a different time range on weekdays
- Activity: turn on outlet a (always), set certain light to 50% ONLY IF said light is currently off (i.e. if the light is already on, don’t change it)
Since the condition will change from tripped to not tripped multiple times (due to motion being detected or not), the Activity will run multiple times. I don’t want to re-set the light to 50% each time, especially if I have manually changed the brightness - only if the light is off, it should be turned on. Is this possible? One workaround I have thought of would be to create a virtual switch that is turned on when the sensor runs, and is turned off after the scheduled time for the sensor, with that switch being off being one of the conditions to run the activity, but I’m wondering if there might be a less convoluted option.
