I’d also love any suggestions from our community on automations they started out with or ones they’re still figuring out that they think would be beneficial to have step by step guides for! If you were on the packaging or rewards program thread I’m looking at you
It uses the quantitative precipitation forecast for the next 12 hours (they split around 3pm between morning and afternoon) and if it’s more than 0 then every hour on the hour it turns on for 2 minutes then turns off.
Hey @kreene1987 – this is awesome and @Brianna_Inovelli and I have been geeking out all day at the possibilities here. Especially for someone who may be audibly impaired, it would be nice to provide a tutorial on how to setup heads-up notifications for severe weather.
What weather service are you using? I’ve searched the ST Community and there doesn’t seem to be too many that provide severe weather alerts. I then went over to IFTTT and Weather Underground does not have the capability to warn of severe weather alerts. There is a workaround for high-wind speed changes, but that wouldn’t help for severe thunderstorms or… ugh, I hate to even mention this word… snow.
Yeah, I was looking at this one – it looks like it just sends you a push notification. I found one from Rboy that has a basic version for free that I believe tells you the weather and a premium version allows for severe weather alerts. I’m playing with that one right now to see if I can figure that one out.
Yeah for sure – this is a great idea too! Bringing me back to the day I installed a Rachio and saw that it could turn on our sprinklers if your hub detected fire/smoke.
When I went to set things up in IDE it complained about creating the Circadian Daylight app prior to the Circadian Daylight Coordinator as the first relies on the second to run. You may want to flip those steps. Otherwise everything was great.
I just got my first order of Inovelli goodies yesterday and set up a couple RGBW bulbs last night. Loving everything so far and already ordered more.
It also dims/brightens dimmable white only bulbs to match. You don’t get the full color/temp effect obviously, but I’ve got it running just fine with both the Inovelli RGBW bulbs and a couple Cree dimmable white bulbs.
From my (admittedly limited) experience so far, any lights selected within the Circadian Rhythm app seem to set themselves to the current dimmer/color settings when powered on. Mine occasionally take 30 seconds to a minute to sync up, but they do fall in line with the rest of the lights fairly quickly.
