I just added a delay to a script that activates my ‘alarm system’ (it’s just one camera lol). The delay was to allow the camera to get into position before motion detection turned on… anyway… after I did the Activate button became a toggle switch, I was wondering if it is possible for me to change it back. (the pic shows what I mean
changing the look of switches in general seems like a useful idea for customisation but I can’t find any info how to do it.
I think you can’t. The reason it changed is that it now doesn’t simply fire off a (set of) command(s) anymore. (due to the delay). But it sees it as an action running for a longer period. As soon as your script is activated, it starts running and it stops when your actions are complete (including the delays). You also can’t restart your script while it is still running.
In my opinion the switch should stay “on” for as long as your script is running.
@Bob_NL Thanks for the reply. ye you made great sense feel a bit silly for not realising it. I just hoped the ability to customise a switch’s appearance was one of those ‘hidden’ features of something.
@Orthodoxmonster Thanks for the suggestion, unfortunately, it doesn’t work, not a big deal but was an interesting idea.
