[APP][Pro] Advanced Triggers - Trigger and action cards with eventname for Advanced Flows

Its okay, i can copy it alright.

It looks as if, because of the brackets, the text stays as it should be.
At least, before i start using [TEF:… i couldn’t copy it when it wasn’t within a codeblock.

Still, nicest way is to put it within a codeblock, so the TEF becomes a one-line-scrollbar-field, which doesn’t interupt the conversation as much.

And thanks!
Ill look into it!

Okay, i got the same results.

(changed test4 to test 2 again).

I’ll work on it, but i do have some other thing right now i must handle first.
I’ll try to squeze it in.

No hurry, this is not something I am using yet, just tested it out of curiosity. :slight_smile:

How do you format code blocks in this forum? I didn’t find it in the toolbar and am not familiary with all formatting syntax here.

Okay Gregow, it’s resolved in the latest live version 1.5.3.:


That was a quick fix. Nice work.

I have this “idea for a flow” that I would like to hear if you think Advanced Triggers is suited for either partly or as the actual trigger.

Trigger when date and time becomes X, Y – where X, Y is variable.

The main idea is to have 1 flow that starts and stops a “stupid oil heater” with a smart plug at a given time. I need 3 different time intervals, which is “ordered” through Siri the day before.

I understand I can make all the 3 different start times and 3 different stop times trigger and check a boolean, but that is nor fun or well spent resources :sweat_smile:

So I thought I order a triggered time with you reurn card and have the trigger run on a specific date and time. Is that possible in todays version?

No, i don’t see that posibility right now in AT.
Technicly it could be made, but placing variables in the Trigger, i am not sure that thats a very good idea, performance wise. I might look into it (some day/right now a bit).

But first let’s see if i have a better solution for you: The default Homey Alarms.
Perhaps it’s best you create 1 or 3 Alarms for this.
This gives you some excellent management options through the Homey app.
And, the only thing missing is a flow to set the times, but here is a HS i created for it yesterday :wink:

let alarms = await Homey.alarms.getAlarms();
let alarm = _.find(alarms, a=>a.name=='AlarmName');
await Homey.alarms.updateAlarm({id:alarm.id, alarm: {time:'20:19'}});

The script is only needed to update times, enabling/disabling alarms can be done through normal flow cards.

Does this fit your need?


hmm!! Interesting.
If I’m able to enable or disable alarms, which I guess I am with HS? This would actually work!
Thanks for a great idea!!

No, there a default flowcards for that.
HS is only needed to adjust the time of the alarms: the can only be set through HS or the Homey App, not through flowcards.
Well HS is perhaps also needed as a condition to check if a alarm is active, i don’t see any conditions.

Perhaps someone should ask @Emile or @Athom if a Set Alarm Time actioncard and a Is Alarm Running condition card could be added to the default flowcards.

But you have quite some default options:


I really have to say that this app is super.
I using it in more and more of my flows.
The possibility to have trigger in sequence for resource lock, and debounce for holding down the load on flows. So great.
Thanks @Arie_J_Godschalk!

await Homey.alarms.updateAlarm({id:alarmOff.id, alarm: {enabled:false}});
Wasn’t harder than that. I had no need for conditions when all was done inside the same HS.
I won’t spam this forum more with non-Advanced Triggers. Just wanted to say thanks for helping!

You’re welcome!

Hi @Arie_J_Godschalk,

With the following flow I tried to block the multiple triggers my Klik-Aan-Klik-Uit doorbell is causing sometimes.
The triggers can happen a few milliseconds after each other, but the debounce is not preventing the final cards to fire.

When tested with timers, is works fine. But it looks like the debounce can not block rapid triggers of a few milliseconds.
Is this a limitation of Homey, or am I doing something wrong?

Hey, ik not sure, i will test it.
Perhaps you can create a support ticket at the supportlink on the App store.

Hi @Arie_J_Godschalk Is this app still alive?
It could resolve one of my key issues with sometimes writing simultaneous messages to a log.
I cannot get it to trigger the second row.

I think you need to save the flow between adding the then card (to set the trigger name “TriggerDuration1var”). Then it will show up in the when card. As you already have saved your flow, try to re-add the trigger name in both cards. Did you select “create” when adding the trigger name in the first card?

Yes it is!

Are you on the HP2023 btw?

Thank your for your answer. Yes to all your questions. On the second row I could select TriggerDuation1var from the dropdownlist.

But I redid everything again according to your tip with a new triggername but still the same problem.

I have a Homey and a Homey Pro from 1-2 years ago.

Update: It always helps to sleep first, then try again. I found I had disabled the flow. Apologies :blush:
