    Hi all,
    I feel like I'm missing something simple here
    I'm trying to emulate an away mode ( simple button press on the ipad when the client goes away it would trigger it ) this would then trigger a few schedules that turn on and off different groups of lights at scheduled times while the client is away.
    does anyone know if its possible to enable/disable schedules or scenes in the shac via a button press. I could then use this button to enable a schedule ( or multiple schedules would be preferred ) which would then turn lights on and off.
    when the away button is turned off then none of the schedules would be enabled.
    without scripting ( which I'm not familiar with ) is there a simple process to do this
    i know with things like pir's there are enable group addresses so would think something similar would work to enable the schedules
    would appreciate any help with this

    Hey Mick - not sure if you have sorted this one.

    No I am not aware of any way it can be done without at least some scripting ...

    PM me if you want me to add some scripting to a device or two for this function - is standard on all my builds these days ...

    Hi Mal,
    You are correct it does require some Lua scripting, I've since achieved this and works really well, I also add it to most of my new builds now.
