I need help with understanding Flow Event Bus App for Homey | Homey .
I may be slow, but bear with me.
I’ve seen the description, plus a few forum posts where it has been explained as a good app for “stupid” buttons, but no concrete examples, and here I am, unable to see the advantage of using it vs regular start flow and the logic/variables.
If someone would be kind to help me with an example - a simple flow with an explanation would suffice. Or you can use one of the two below to explain how to implement the app. Thank you!
I have a RF remote with 8 buttons.
Homey can detect them being pressed (Telldus App for Homey | Homey). I want to split them into 6 functions-, and 2 program buttons, and use them as follows:
a) to do a specific thing when one of 6 function buttons is being pressed
b) to have 6 function buttons do some other funtions if one of the 2 program buttons is pressed first.
I.e. to have 18 different funtions with 6+2 buttons
Does that make sense?
Another example would be a button which toggles through some light scenes by using iteration of variables (i+1) and the regular “this flow is started” with corresponding AND criteria and many flows.
Now, are those two examples something to do with Flow event bus? I am able to do that with timers and variables, but would love to make it more elegant and efficient. How to do that with this app?
If this isn’t a good place to use it, what is? Do you have an example (preferably with a brief explanation to it ) I see people in forum are excited to use the app and I want in on the ride.
