Posted some questions already regarding this (point solutions) so I decided to upload the flow I currently have in Home Assistant with the question of how I can do this in Homey (preferably with a single flow).
Essentially a sensor is created which can contain multiple motion sensors. If any of those are on then turn off the timer and turn on the light. Brightness is a function that checks if it’s night (brightness to 20%) or day (brightness 100%). For some of my area’s I have more advanced brightness based on the luminance in that room. When a sensor is off (no motion detected) a timer starts running and eventually turns off the light.
Curious in how I can make this work in Homey without making a lot of flows per room
So why starting a new topic then?
Because (as I mentioned) these were point solutions in my current Nodered flow. I decided to show the entire flow to show the end goal I have.
I have an app that can do what you ask. Allows grouping of sensors and then choosing what the status of the group is based off the results.
Ie I any are on, all are on, more than half are on … for Boolean items like lights and motion sensors. Or average (mean,mode,median, min, max) for other devices. (Ie Temperature/ dimmer)
Contact me if you can install through cli - otherwise im hoping to have a alpha in a couple of days.
Hey thanks. I’ll give it a go. Let me know how to install.
Looking forward to this app that group sensors!
I’m actually looking for some pre-alpha testers, if anyone is interested and is comfortable installing an app via CLI :
Check Node.js version on Homey: Homey App: Settings - General - About - Node.js version
Download Node.js (use Homey’s version or higher) from
https://nodejs.org/ and install it on your computer.
Download the app you want to install from GitHub
Go to the repository on GitHub (the correct link for the app you want to install is at the bottom of the app store page or given directly through the support topic)
On GitHub choose the right branch to install, master is usually the…
I don’t get it… This looks like an exact copy from Device Groups. Nothing added regarding motion sensors…
Also had to delete the “old” version which then deleted my device groups.
Make sure that you checkout the alpha branch, not the master branch.
This branch is 26 commits ahead of swttt:master.
Sorry to hear you had to delete the ‘old’ version, if you check out the alpha branch - that wont happen, though that’s a bit late now.
Haha, no big deal. Still in Alpha phase here regarding Homey. Home Assistant runs everything outside my own lab
hows development going for this app? whats the name actually?
Its stable and awaiting merging into the main branch, you can read more here :
< group >
With this app you can group devices with the same capabilities as one device. This means you an control multiple devices from the one place.
Help me buy a homey to create this and other apps on.
Please note that this app now only supports v2, while legacy code should continue to work, new installations are not possible nor supported.
