I have a question I am trying to wrap my head around. A few years back I created a quick scene to solve the fact that just before Bed time I set my hot water heater to turn on for a few minutes in the morning to give me hot water for a morning shower.
What I did was.
- created a Virtual Switch which was my just before bed trigger. I just switched it to on.
- had another virtual switch (lets call it 6am switch) which always turned on by a scene at 6am.
- a second schene had two triggers 1 and 2 being on which caused the hotwater to come on.
- a 3rd scene which has a generic role of switching the hot water heater off always after 30mins took care of the off.
Looking at all this a few years later makes me feel like an idiot
I am sure there is a way to make it all much simpler. Certainly only one scene. Funny thing i dont understand is why the two ON virtual switches behave like AND in the scene. i.e. the scene triggers because both are on. it wont trigger if either is on. Is this logical? had i perhpas done something to the triggers? why cant a trigger be a time and a switch to make it simpler?
