Feature request: Exclude lights from the 'all lights on/off' commands.

Is it possible to exclude a light or device from the general build in all on/off commands? Would be great!
I don't want to switch lights on in the children bedrooms by accident or switch the lights in de garden off when i get to bed and say 'Ok Homey, switch all lights off'.

  • Why not make a scene "good night" and configure all task that you want homey to do.

    and I don't know if you have to tell homey explicit to turn ALL lights on/off to do so.

    That is possible already. You can say to homey "OK Homey, turn lights on in the living room". It will then only turn lights on in the living room. That works on my Homey.

    Can you say 'Turn on all lights except children's room'?

    I know you can make flows and eventually create groups of lights. But the risk of an user fail in this case is high. I don't want to put a list of forbidden  words or sentences on the table for the babysitter. And keep the WAF on this in mind.

    That is not possible. However you can create a flow with only the lights that has to been turned on or off.

    https://trello.com/c/ujXO0xi2 although I'm not sure it the original request by @ErikvanDongen is meant or the variation that @Fire69 mentioned.
    I would prefer the method @ErikvanDongen suggested.
