    Use an event to enable or disable other events

    Does anyone know if it is possible to enable or disable other events from a different event? I have a vacation rental property and the rental software sends an email when someone checks out to shut off the lights. It would be great if I could enable it to disable the lights turning on every night except when someone is at the house.

    TIA!

    The Easy Trigger plug-in has Actions to enable or disable an a Event. I think a better solution would be to have a virtual device for occupancy. Then use the virtual device as a condition in your lighting Events. For example:

    IF the time is sunset
    AND IF. Occupancy Vertual Device is Occupied
    THEN turn lights On.

    When the virtual device is “Vacant” the lights will not come on.

      Substitute Disable for Enable to achieve the opposite
