  • Turn off additional lights by double tapping off on an insteon light switch...

    I am trying to set up a room so that if I turn the light switch off normally it just turns off the controlled light. But if I double tap the off switch I want it to turn off all of the lights in the room. It seems like I was able to do this in the past but as of right now nothing I've tried has really worked that way.

    I would love it if someone knew of a way to accomplish this.

    Regards,
    Tony

    This might work:

    Event 1

    If Device Switch is set or changed to "Off"
    Then Turn off Light
    If conditions are true then run event 2
    Start timer

    Event 2

    If Manually triggered
    andif timer value > 0
    Then Turn off all lights

    Event 3

    If timer reaches 3 seconds
    Then Stop timer
    set timer to 0

    You would have to be sure not to tap it too quickly though, so that the timer reached at least the 1 second mark.

      Actually, this might work even better:

      Event 1

      If Device Switch is set or changed to "Off"
      Then Turn off Light
      If conditions are true then run event 2
      Set Counter to 1
      Start timer

      Event 2

      If Manually triggered
      andif counter value > 0
      Then Turn off all lights

      Event 3

      If timer reaches 3 seconds
      Then Stop timer
      set timer to 0
      set counter to 0

      Having the counter would eliminate having to wait for 1 second to press the second time.

        Doh!! Got fixated on trying to get my initial idea to work and completely forgot about timers and counters. Thank you!!!

          Are you still using Insteon switches with the Insteon plugin? If so in the event you can use the Insteon Special Triggers to capture the double tap just like you would with Insteon Hub or ISY.

              Did you raise that issue to Mark in the Insteon Plugin sub-forum?

                Well it's working now. So I must have done something wrong the first 14 times I tried it. :P That's how the last couple weeks has been going for me in general.

                Thanks again,
