I just recently bought a bunch of xiaomi smart devices and started automating my home. However, I ran into a few issues and I’m wondering if I’m missing something or if what I need really can’t be done. So:
- Is it possible to manually OVERRIDE a sensor automation? Example: a motion sensor turns on a light when detecting movement and turns it off when no movement for 2 minutes. Is it possible to hit a switch that basically says “turn light on and keep it on until I turn it off”? The scenario for this is watching a movie or staying in the hot tub in the bathroom. I might not be moving for 2 minutes and want to prevent the light from turning off.
- Is it possible to detect when somebody’s home or any other status like that and then use it as input for some other automation? I can detect when the door opens and closes but then what? Ideally I would want to say “if the door closes and the hallway sensor sees no movement for two minutes, then remember nobody’s home”. Then, in a separate action I would like to say “if detecting x AND if nobody’s home, then do something”.
- Is it possible to mix input of two sensors? “When detecting motion AND if the window is closed, then do something”.
Thanks a lot!
