Making the place 'look lived in'

by codepoet on ‎02-16-2017 02:51 PM

to control Wemo switches, in the Wemo App, it would be *very* convient in the rules to say "on at 6pm +/- random 0-15 min", off at "11pm +/- random 0-15 min"


that way, the house would apear more 'lived in' than 'scheduled'


if the switches can't handle randomness, then the app could simply 'update each day with a new value as it passes'


so, with one setting, i could set "Mon/Tue/Wed/Thu/Fri" on @ 6:00pm +/- 0:15, off @ 11:00pm +/- 0:15


and I may get

M: on 6:08 off 10:55

T:  on 5:55 off 11:15

W: on 6:01 off 10:48

Th: on 6:10 off 10:58

F: on 5:49 off 11:05

M: on 5:51 off 10:52

Hi codepoet


Have you checked out the WeMo "away" rule? I think it does much if what you're suggesting.
