Random automation

#1

Hi there. Is there a way to automate that some flows are random? Like in the PHILIPS Hue App where a light automation can turn on or off randomly with in a parameter set. Can you do that?

Check the description in your app of every device in the THEN column, at the “duration” and “delay” inputs.

Thanks Caseda. Sorry for possibly my silly questions but I’ve ordered my Homey and waiting for it to arrive so never played with it before.

Would your reply mean that you can set the on/off to random?

Thanks again

Yes, any command that you can place in the then column (dim, on/off, anything) can have an delay with a range, like 1-300 seconds, it then activates that card somewhere between 1 and 300 seconds

Are you trying to automate random lights going on or off to simulate presence in your home , of what would be the purpose of a random flow?
