Nice Idea. I quess the same way as the light example. Instead of using the “zet helderheid” use the speaker volume


#23

The app works perfect with volume aswell, here are my “sleep” and “awake” flows:


#24

This is great!
Now, could you set an alarm as well the night before, which then triggers the ‘wake up flow’ the next morning? Say, I want to wake up on Mondays at 7 AM, but on Tuesdays on 8AM. Could I set an alarm of sorts on Sunday and Monday night?


#25

Not sure what you mean @Pim_de_Vente, with homey you can set different alarms. And use the “alarm” card as a trigger. Why do you need a alarm for the evening before?

Reason why i use the “flow has started” for my wake up flow, is because i have 2 ways to trigger that flow, 1 is the alarm, and the other is pressing a z-wave button twice next to my bed, for when it’s weekend and i don’t use a alarm :slight_smile:


#26

Well, I use my phone to set an alarm for the next day. But sometimes I like to wake up a bit earlier or later. So I’d like Homey to trigger the wake up routine based on my preferences the night before.

While I thought this was pretty complicated, Apple just released Siri Shortcuts, so I might be able to program a combined Siri-Homey flow with the new app.


#27

Or you could just use the alarm from Homey? And trigger a flow based on that alarm.

If you find a solution with the Shortcuts app let us know :slight_smile:


#28

Probably not directly applicable to iOS, but in Android I use the app Sleep as Android as alarm. This app has webhook integration with IFTTT. I use this to let IFTTT trigger flows in Homey.

Thanks for your work @robertklep

Sharing my Sonos Fade-in / Fade-out flows, based on the transitions app.

1.Trigger flow:

  • Flow being triggered and based on the volume level will trigger either the fade-in or fade-out flow

2.Fade in flow:

  • Start fade-in transition, with input: 0-0.1, 30s, 3s; volume level from 0 to 10% (0-0.1), in 30 seconds, 3 seconds per step

3.Fade out flow:

  • create a Better Logic variable (Sonos-Fade-out) to determine the transition duration based on the actual volume level (tag). I used 200x the volume level. ie. a volume level of 15% will use a transition duration of 30s.
  • Start a transition with input '# Set volume' tag - 0, 'Sonos-Fade-out's, 1s; start level the actual volume level of the Sonos speaker, and duration defined by the BL variable Sonos-Fade-out.

4.Actual updating of the Sonos volume level

  • Drag the # Value tag of the “Transition changed” trigger card over the slider of the “Set volume” action card

5.Stop playing once the transition is completed and volume level = 0

Flows 1-3 can also be combined into 1 flow, taking away the separate flow triggers. But in this case, I also trigger the same flow 2 and 3 from other flows (e.g. my wake-up flow triggered by the coffee machine)…


Add Sonos "fade to volume" instead of "set volume"
Change Sonos Set Volume to a value instead of a slider

Hello,

thanks for this great app. Is it possible to change colors (like a lightning console) with this app? or can i use only numbers for the start and stop value?

all the best


#31

Numbers only, I’m afraid. Not sure if you wouldn’t be able to transition a “hue” value for a light, though (mainly because I don’t have lights that can change color).


#32

okay thanks for the information. :)))

all the best
