Hello all, first post.
I’ve been using apilio for several months, and noticed an issue now the darker nights are here.
my setup is as follows:
me_home - True/False - Triggered by Locative app on phone
wife_home - True/False - Triggered by Locative app on phone
night - True/false - Triggered by WU via IFTTT
is_it_night - Rule must be true
is_me_home - Rule must be true
is_wife_home - Rule must be true
turn_on_front_lights - Linked to conditions: is_it_night, is_me_home, is_wife_home
turn_on_lounge_lights - Linked to conditions: is_it_night, is_me_home, is_wife_home
turn_on_porch_light - is_it_night, is_me_home, is_wife_home
The process is working correctly, i.e if either myself or my wife are home/arrive home after sunset, it will trigger the relevant lights to come on.
The issue is, if I walk the dog, and re-enter the geofence it will trigger the lights to come on again, despite my wife’s and the nighttime Boolean being set to true this can pose an issue if I’m arriving home late and the lights are off, or we have the lights off due to relaxing. Is there a way to stop it re-triggering?
Its also an issue if I walk the dog early morning in the dark, as it causes lights to come on that I don’t want to come on. once again is_wife_home & night booleans both flagged as true.
Any advice appreciated. Hopefully, an easy fix?
