Ok, So I have PLEG currently locking my door if it is left unlocked for 10 minutes, unless I am in party mode (in which case I like it to be left unlocked as people will be coming and going and I don’t want it to be a hassle). Party mode is handled by a scene in which I set a virtual switch to “on” and check this in my PLEG conditions
However, I currently have a scene setup to turn on the foyer light whenever any pin is entered to open the door. It works great, but I was curious if it would be possible to do this in PLEG (so that don’t just have a scene for unlocking the door). My foyer is always dark, so I don’t care about day or night. I tried using:
(DoorUnlockedByPin;NOW < 1)
but as everyone probably knows, this can take up to a minute. I want the light to turn on immediately. I even tried just:
but that is always true (after the first time it is unlocked by a pin).
My guess is that maybe a sequence would work where I add another condition of DoorLocked and do
but that doesn’t work as well. I would this work though since it says “if the door is locked, then the door is unocked by a pin, do X”?
So then I thought maybe I could do the comparison between the two using dates, but I can’t for the life of me think of how to do this, since I don’t really care about the time between the states, just that it was locked then unlocked by a pin. I would like it to be almost instant. If a scene is the best way to handle it, then I’ll keep the scene, but PLEG has really intrigued me and I’m more just curious to know if it’s possible.
