LED ring off

Hi all,

I made a flow to switch the LED off during the day. However there is no possibility to do that, other than setting the brightness to 0%. The only problem is that homey doesn't acknowlegde anymore when listening (orange LED). Am I missing something and is there another way? I searched the forum but didn't find anything.

    Only issue is that the brightness will remain on that level until it's changed by another flow but you can workaround this using better logic with some global variables. I always turn the LED off when I'm going to sleep or when nobody is home.

    Don't turn off the brightnes to 0%, keep at least some brightnes (5 or 10%) and turn of the LED Idle mode (Screensaver)  using the HTTP Request flow cards (1.2.0) and the geeky JSON codes.

    Or just simpler, make a new flow:  
    WHEN: Homey starts listening. 
    THAN: Turn on Led Ring and second THAN: Turn off Led Ring with a timer of 30 seconds. 
    This is how In do it and works perfect

    Thnx guys for your reply's

    That's a good simple solution, something with "multiple ways lead to Rome" and "every advantage has its disadvantage" :)
    There is no other way to change de LED Idle mode than the complex way with the Geeky HTTP Request, I like the advanced options :) you can even choose a custom "Screensaver" from an App.

    I used Bas Post's method, because the http request app needs further studying from my part, because i am not a developer :smile:

    In 0.8.33, the LED Ring's screensaver can be chosen from the Flow Editor.
