Switching lights randomly//Simulate home presence//Home security

Random timer for flow execution

You can create a flow that is triggered lest say every 10 minutes.

The chance you can do with a logic element in the flow.


Is this really chance or should this be Change? How does that work? In the Dutch language it looks like this:


Yep. That’s what’s making it random.
