FEATURE REQUEST: Trigger Scene on Mode Change
« on: December 21, 2018, 08:39:49 am »
Maybe I'm missing something really obvious here, but wouldn't it be helpful if when creating a scene, that there was a fourth trigger option to trigger the scene when the system either moves out of a specified mode or moves into a specified mode?

If you install the House Modes plug-in, you can select it as a trigger.

Take a look at the Reactor plugin.  it has the ability to fire a scene on house mode changes and also gives you a ton of flexibility that the native Vera rules/scenes cannot do.

Awesome, thank you for the recommendations!  Trying both plug-ins now
