  1. EDIT...the above didn't work as intended. You have to work with HSL color value to get this piston to work properly.
  2. Got it to work, like this... NO, THIS DO NOT WORK with Philips Hue outdoor light strip. See my post below.
  3. Hi, Christmas is coming up and I have installed a HUE outdoor light strip on my balcony. I'm trying to understand Webcore but it is to difficult for me to wrap my head around therefor this reach out. This is what I want to accomplish. Hue Outdoor strip will do a color loop, when a virtual switch turns on, with the colors blue, red and green and continue loop this three colors with a 5 seconds interval until the virtual switch is turned off. This seems like a super simple task to do in Webcore but I cant get the repeat functionality to work, can someone do a webcore piston as described above and share the backup code for me to try. Best wishes, //Peter
  4. Hi, I have a couple of Fibaro Wall plugs with the Device handler "Fibaro Wall Plug EU ZW5" Is there a way to make these plugs local, as it is now there are shown in "SmartThings Groovy IDE" as Cloud.
  5. Ok, now that I think of it. I had turned of the Home/Away automations when I switch to the new Smartthings system. My solution to my own dilemma is to use the Home and Away states that triggers lights on when Home and lights off when Away. (I used that with the old Smartthings but somehow didn't move that over to the new Smartthings) That is of course the logic behind using Home and Away states.
  6. Hi, I have a dilemma that I need help with. I'm a long time Smartthings user and I use Life360 as our presence sensor for us, Peter and Pia. So here is my dilemma: In Smartthings automations I have tried to set up the following Automations to have light in the apartment turn on and turn off when the following occurs. Scenario 1 Peter present = turn on light Pia present = turn on light Peter and Pia not present = turn off lights PRO & CONS: Good, when Peter is home and Pia leaves the lights don't change (and vice versa) Bad, when Peter is home and have turn off lights and Pia arrives the lights turn on (and vice versa) Scenario 2 Peter present and Pia not present = turn on light Pia present and Peter not present = turn on light Peter and Pia not present = turn off lights PRO & CONS: Good, when Peter is home and have turn off lights and Pia arrives the lights do not turn on (and vice versa) Bad, when Peter is home and Pia leaves the lights turns on because the state Peter present and Pia not present occurs (and vice versa) I can't figure out how to make automations in Smartthings so that when the first person arrives the lights turns on and when the second person arrives nothing changes and also when one person is changing from present to not present nothing changes. I can only have one or the other as it is right now. How have you set up your Automations in your home? //Peter
  7. Hi all, Hope everyone is safe and healthy. There is one thing that keeps bothering me and that is when I set up a custom routine on my account, my partner who also are at the same Google house hold can't seem to get those routines to work properly. Google keep saying that it don't know how to do that and so on when she (my partner) says the proper phrases. Do I have to set up my created routines on her account as well? Update: I went on the Google chat line and they told me that as we have voice match I have to manually enter my routines into my partners account. Problem solved! Best regards, //Peter
  8. Hey Brian, Of course, let me know if you need additional photage.
  9. Oh yes, I cut a hole in the carpet, cut the cord and threaded it thru the carpet then attached a new plug.
  10. Hi all, This is my do it yourself project I’ve been doing this Easter weekend. Picture this, you have been working hard the entire week and it is finally Friday evening and you and your partner have ordered Indian take out and are sitting down in the sofa ready to eat and watch an 80s classic movie in the movie room. Que the movie and a dark scene where you can’t see the hand in front of you because you have a completely blackened out movie room. What to do? You can’t eat because you can’t see the food in front of you and you can’t turn on the ceiling lights because that would put you right out of the movie and ruin the picture quality? Enter the down light underneath the table in front on the sofa, now you can see the food and you don’t ruin the picture! This is truly a DIY project using a Philips HUE light strip and the semi-transparent lid from an indoor cable list. The lid is naturally pressed against the three legs of the table and are hold in place with regular double-sided tape. The Philips HUE light strip is then attached to the inside of the lid and connected to a power strip that I securely drilled in place underneath the table. A fun and easy DIY that makes a world of difference in my movie room. Stay safe and have fun! //Peter
