Add Device level usage in Scene/Rule condition
Playing with mobile temperature control (don't have a thermostat device just yet). Would like to: Create a Virtual Device (named MAX) set to "viewable on mobile device" and set the type as DIMMER (only so its value is adjustable on the fly). Now what i'd like to do is somehow use the following logic in a trigger OR condition: when "A DEVICE is > level MAX " instead of using a numeric value comparative. (allowing thus to "push/update" the value in the condition from the mobile client side)
I believe I posted this from my old profile a few years ago. Looks like i'm going try and ask again since it had 4 votes. With the launch of Axial's Alexa/Google smart home skill and this logic suggestion on the server side would even be better; one could easily set via voice-command the "MAX" and/or "MIN" to dynamically adjust a trigger value. Besides accomplishing the above original suggestion, anyone currently using the Amazon smart-home integration like myself could just say "Alexa set [device] to [desired level]" for a simple, voice-controlled thermostat with OUT the need to purchase any actual thermostat hardware.
OK thanks for reading as always.
