Triggered Event on "last light is off"
#7
IVB Wrote: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."

I'm still figuring out the best way to handle this myself. One idea is to use an Insteon desktop controller and use one of the presets to kick off the "go to sleep" mode. Failing that, I may just put a pushbutton in an unobtrusive place on or near my nightstand. The button output would tie to an ELK zone and could be used trigger the sequence in CQC. For extra points, I need to get a bust of someone famous and hinge the head so I can flip it back and activate night mode, like Bruce Wayne had to access the Bat Cave on the cheesy old Batman TV series.

Fair enough.. I've visited my girlfriend's brother in Oakland a couple times and have little desire to go back.
