Did you know that you can add more than one condition to your automations?
When you create an automation rule with the Freedompro app, you can determine how many and which conditions should trigger your habit.
First of all, you need to create the habit. If you don't know how to do this, read this article!
How to add conditions
Now that you set up the foundation of your automation, we can proceed with adding the conditions as follows:
Press on the green colored + corresponding to the "When" section;
Choose the type of event that should trigger this automation.
Remember to select if automation should occur on meeting one condition or all those added.
Accessory status-based condition
To add a condition based on the status of an accessory you just need to follow these steps:
Select "Accessory Status";
Select the accessory you want to be your trigger;
Set the state the accessory must be in to trigger the habit.
The state of the accessory can be of four different types:
By selecting "Consumption", you will be asked to enter the power consumption parameters to be met by that accessory in order to turn on automation. You will also be able to set how long that accessory will have to remain in that state to trigger your habit.
To add a time base condition, simply follow the following steps:
The time condition can be based on:
Time of day: all you will need to do is select the time at which you want the automation to trigger;
Date and time: select the specific date and time at which the automation is to trigger;
Time period: set a time frame within which the automation is to be triggered; and
Any time: select the day, or days, on which the automation is to take place (you can also select all days).
Once you add the condition(s) that will need to be met, we can go on to add the action that will need to occur.
