This category is created to show, and explain the working of specific Flows in homey.I have a magnetic contact on my back door and for the outdoor lighting I use a Fibaro 2 X 1500, FGS 222.
Now I want when I open my back door that the lights go on and when the door closes the lights go out after 1 minute. This works well with countdown function and hourglass.
But the problem is that if I have turned on the light with the wall switch, I open the door and close it again, the lamp also goes out. It should stay on. I also hope to solve this when I involve the switch S1 from the Fibaro. I use for now Light on is Boolean: True, Light off is Boolean: False.
Tested this with 2 separate magnetic contacts and that works too.
But if I turn on or of the light via the app, it won’t work again.
How can I make it clear to Homey that I am switching on or off via the app?
So enable via the app = Boolean: True. Disable = Boolean: False.
So click on the icon in the app.
When I had just written this message I realized that this could perhaps be done with a virtual switch.
Is that going to work? And can I also choose a toggle switch that changes color when switching on or off in the app?
Which one should that be?
Thanks in advance.
Edit: It looks like that the S1 idea also is not working. I have a normal switch and turn on with the switch and off in the app and everything is going wrong…
