I would like to hear some pro’s and con’s of using the device status in the AND section.
When switching a device you can add a status check of that device in the AND section:
Functionally it is not usefull: although a device that is off will not actually switch off, the flow will function just the same way.
A reason to add the Device check in the AND can be to reduce the load on a connected bridge or reduce the amount of communication:
When you include the AND homey will not send a zigbee (or other) signal to switch the device off when it is already off. Resulting in less zigbee signals an less stress on a hue bridge (if that is used)
Curious to hear your opions and how you use it…
