for my heating-automations, I have a few questions.
For workdays (I have a workday-sensor) I’d like to have the following automations:
In the mornings:
start the heating 30 minutes before the alarm on my Echo goes off
Condition: workday, one or other person is at home
set new lower temperature when last person has left the house
Trigger: both presence-tracker have left the house
Is this way for my automation correct?
Now my problems start for the automations in the afternoon evening:
In the afternoon:
start heating when ONE of the following triggers happen
Schedule for every weekday
OR presence tracker gets home BEFORE the schedule would start
OR Button on a mobile device is pushed BEFORE the schedule would start
set new lower temperature when no one is at home in the middle of the day and start heating again with button or device-tracker if someone comes back
Normally I’d like the heating to start at a certain time of the day. This will be 30 minutes before the first person will get home.
But sometimes you get home earlier than the planned time. That’s when you push the button so you will come into a warm house.
And sometimes you only leave for an hour or so and it’s just enough to start the heating again when you enter the door because it is not that cold in your house.
So does any of you has an idea for me how I can get all of these things in automations that don’t bother each other?
I really would appreciate your help. Thanks a lot!
