The sensors inside have some value, for example if somebody would jam the zigbee stuff my poe camera senors with image processing would still trigger. Also the battery of the door sensor might be empty before other sensors are empty.
I have a few other apps which take care of heat, light and power control:
Feel free to test them. I have migrated most of my stuff to appdaemon because I do not like the native automations…
I will get back to you concerning the video stuff in the future.
I am too stupid to set this up… I added the files to custom_components and mae a basic config entry in my configuration.yaml. but i get error custom_component entity_controller not found is there a write-up how to install this app? where or what do i have to install?
My app supports it as well…
I don’t use this custom component, so I can’t talk from experience.
I don’t know if it is possible to directly configure this in this custom component. As a workaround you could create an input_boolean for each room like input_boolean.bedroom_lux_high, which is ‘on’ if the lux is higher than your threshold and ‘off’ if the lux is lower than your threshold and then use these input booleans as override entities in the custom component.
However, this is not a very clean solution in my opinion.
I completely agree with you … your app is called lightsaver right …I saw u pushed it 14 hours ago but I can’t find any config example for it …would like taking your instead of the custom component …could you provide me a short example how to configure your light component for appdaemon? According to the core I guess it’s exactly what I need … I’m running appdaemon 3 and 4
For them moment I created binary sensors for the luminance values needed for the “condition” … the dev of the custom_component also recommended this … I’ll try this out but might want to try your app also. Just in case it fits better to my needs. The only thing is I’d need a config example
I think you mean the app of @runningman84. I could check the app and provide you with a config for his app, but it’s easier if he provides you with an example, which I assume he already has one.
You can’t use my motion_lights app alone, you would need to add all the other apps because they are interconnected. I’m working on making my apps usable by other people, but unfortunately not on the top of my priority list.
