Did you know that you can add more than one action to your automations?
When you create an automation rule with the Freedompro application, you can determine how many and what actions should happen when conditions are met.
First of all, you need to create the habit and set the conditions. If you do not know how to do this, read these articles:
How to add actions
Now that you created the basis of your automation and added the conditions to be met, we can proceed with adding the actions as shown in the following steps:
Press on the green colored + corresponding to the "Then" section;
Choose the type of action to happen.
Add an action: control accessory
By selecting "Control Accessory", you will have to indicate which accessory will play the leading role in the triggered action and its behavior.
For example: kitchen light, on.
Add an action: as long as the accessory
By selecting "As long as the accessory...", you will have to indicate which accessory will play the leading role in the action triggered and its behavior.
For example: as long as kitchen light is not on.
Add an action: notification
By selecting "Notification", the system will send you a custom notification when the conditions are met.
All you will have to do is:
Enter the custom notification title;
Enter the custom notification message;
Select who will be notified.
Add an action: habit
By selecting "Habit", you can include another habit as a result of conditions occurring.
First, you have to select the existing habit that will play a leading role in this event. Then, choose its behavior:
Run: when the conditions are met, the selected habit runs;
Stop: when the conditions are met, the selected habit stops;
Enable: when the conditions are met, the selected habit will be enabled;
Disable: when the conditions are met, the selected habit will be disabled;
Add an action: wait
The "Wait" item necessarily needs the use of a second type of action. By selecting "Wait," you will be able to set a custom waiting time period before performing the main automation action.
Here is an example of habit: "When it is a weekday and the bedside light comes on; then wait 10 seconds and then raise the bedroom shutter."
Now that you have learned how to properly add actions to your habit you can have fun creating automations based on your routines.
Remember: you can add as many actions as you like for each habit.
