2 phase blinds closing scene
« on: December 14, 2017, 04:07:19 pm »
Hi,

every night i want to close the blinds in the living room.
i created a scene that will first set the blinds to 80% and after 2 minutes close them completely.
i do this in 2 phases because i dont want that by accident someone will be left outside when the blinds close.

the problem is: if the starting point the blinds are closed - then during the scene the blinds open up to 80% and then close after 2 minutes.

what are my best options here?

Put a conditional on your scene so it executes only if the blind is open... You can search the forum for conditional scene executions.

You can try to use the conditions and make it work in a loop.
