Window/door sensors only used for triggers?
I wanted to create a flow
when it starts raining and some of the windows are still open
Flow scenario: Have homey
say something when it starts raining (trigger) and the windows are
still open at the attic + send a push message.
Now it seems that most
door/window sensors can be used as triggers but do not support the
“AND” part in the flow.
I am using 2 Sensative
strips (zwave) at the windows that only allow to be used as triggers
and do not support the “AND” column in the flow e.g. “contact
alarm is on/off” (window/door is open/closed).
@RamonBaas same for the
Powermax window/door sensors, these only support to be used as
triggers. Also the movement sensors only allow to be used as a
trigger and do not support the “AND” column e.g. “movement was
I was able to make a
workaround but it is not the correct trigger as “starting to rain”
(only once triggered) would be the correct trigger to use. In the
workaround I had to make a “time pause” for homey not constantly
repeating. As in below flow the window keeps triggering until it is
closed or it stops raining. The countdown timer is creating a pause.
QUESTION: Is this
device or technology depended or is it a general homey setting to
have this enabled?
example my KAKU movement sensors does support “movement was
detected” in the AND column.
