Conditional switching

The possibility to switch based on sensor results, e.g., a motion sensor triggers, but the built-in brightness sensor measures above the set brightness threshold, so the light doesn’t turn on.

From my understanding of a smart home, I expect a system that responds to various sensor readings and intelligently processes switch activations. However, at the moment, the software only acts as an intermediary between the switch and the actuator, lacking any real smart functionality.


This feature is currently in development and just needs some finishing. However the developer is available again in september. So I think this feature will come in october.

Beside being able doing these automations via Phoscon App in future, the existing /rules REST-API is made for this very task to incorporate multiple sensors into more complex logic.

Another powerful GUI option is using the deCONZ REST-API via Node-RED (node-red-contrib-deconz).

To add to this. I recommend using Hue Essentials. That front-end is really easy to use (i believe he has Iphone, Android and Windows versions).

I will hold on until October.
