I have a window at home and a lot of sun is coming in especially in the morning making the environment quite warm. The blind is controlled by a qubino Shutter and in the room I have installed an aeotec sensor 6.
For now what I have done is create a “Logic” which is my luminance threshold above which the bling should close.
I have then two flows.
when the luminance is changing and the luminance is bigger than the set value and time is between x and y then close blinds
when time is y lift blinds
Now the issue is that sometime the blind closes but then for any reason I would like to lift the blinds and keep them open even if luminance is greater than the set value and time is between x and y.
Any suggestions on how I could achieve this?
Maybe, to facilitate the task we can consider that once the blind is lifted during the x y time it won’t be closed again the same day.
This is a good start.
You only need a yes/no variable.
If the variable = No, then the flow to close the blinds can be triggered (in the time between x and y).
When the flow is triggered for the first time, the variable must be set to Yes. This prevents the flow from being triggered a second time.
The variable can be set to No again after the time y.
I ended up deactivating the “down” flow automatically at the end of the “down” flow and reactivating it automatically at the end of the “up” flow. I also tested the Yes/No variable but the former requires less cards/variables.
