Triggered Event on "last light is off"
#6
Prefect Wrote:This is probably a highly personal thing, but I wouldn't really want to have to run around to shut all the lights off to "put the house to sleep." In my view, part of the point of an automation system is to hit a single button and have the system turn all the lights off, arm your alarm, etc.
Yep, highly personal.

If there was a telephone or voice recognition interface to CQC, I'd agree with you. But I don't want to have to go to a touchscreen just to do this. I don't have a touchscreen next to the bed, so this means i'd have to do something like "put house to sleep, but turn these lights off in 1 minute so I can physically get to the bed."

Quote:You could also tie it to arming your ELK.. When it goes into Armed Stay, have it start a sequence which shuts your lights off, etc.
We live in Oakland - the house goes into Armed Stay mode at 8pm :-)
