Hi fellow HA enthousiasts,
I really like the newly added ‘Blueprint’ feature. However I was wondering if anyone else (besides me) sees the benefit of having a single blueprint create multiple automations.
I’m on mobile right now so I will have to add my specific automation use-case later, but to clarify my suggestion a bit:
I have 4 automations for each area where I control light via motion sensors. I use a ‘start’, ‘cancel’, ‘restart’ and ‘finish’ automation. Basically when a user manually operates a light in the area the ‘start’ and ‘restart’ automations get disabled. The ‘start’ automation starts a timer and the ‘finish’ automation triggers when the timer expires. These automations basically enable a smarter scenario than just the basic ‘when motion, light on’ of which there is already a default blueprint.
I would really like to be able to create a blueprint (to share with the community) for these automations, but it would only make sense to me if a single blueprint was able to create the 4 automations needed.
I realise that this is currently not possible, but I’m hoping that this will be added to the new blueprint feature.
Would anyone else see the benefit of creating multiple (>1) automations using a single blueprint?
Edit: I noticed some community members question the benefit of having blueprints next to automations. I feel that the ability to generate multiple automations from a single blueprint would really make blueprints an even more ‘standout’ feature than it already is.
