Timer Delay in a Scene
« on: July 28, 2011, 06:54:29 pm »
I set up a Scene that turn's on a light, and then returns it to it's original state say after 30 minutes. Assuming the light was on initially, and the scene was activated, then the light should do nothing: it was already on, and it reverts to on after 30 minutes. However, what should happen if someone physically turns off that light within the 30 minute window? Would it go back to "on" when the timer expires, or will it stay off because it was manually set to do so?

How are you defining what the original state is?

JOD.



I'm sorry, my responses are limited. You must ask the right questions.

I do it from the GUI:
1st dropbox: "ON"
2nd dropbox: "After 30 minutes"
3rd dropbox: "Go back to previous settings"

So the question is: what is meant by "previous settings" -- is it the setting at the time the scene was invoked?

Thx

Yes.
