can you force a rule when using multiple?

by dbran on ‎08-17-2017 08:14 AM

I've set rules on my new wemo switch.  

 

1.  turn on with sunrise

2.  turn off with sunset

3.  turn off when nest is away

4.  turn on when nest is not away

 

 

I'd like rule #2 to override rule #4.  is this possible?   

 

example.   wemo turns on in the morning, but when everyone goes to work, it shuts off.   When you return home, it turns the switch back on.   At sunset, the switch turns back off, but will not cycle again should someone leave the house after sunset and come back, only a sunrise will turn the switch back on after sunset.

Hi, dbran. A possible rule conflict may occur in that setup. It's highly recommended to set 1 rule per a particular duration of time

If I understand, he only has one rule for sunset to turn the switch off.  Trouble is this only works once - at sunset - to turn off the switch.

 

I think the request may be for a condition to only turn the switch on (or off?) during specific time periods, like night or day.

 

Belkin's rules do not support conditions, you'd need a more sophisticated rule engine like AutomationManager to make this work.
