    Mutually Exclusive Scenes

    So, I have two scenes which involve outdoor lighting. One is called "Night" - it's just a subset of the outdoor lights that come on every night at sunset. The other is called "All Outdoor" - which, as the name implies, is all the outdoor lights.

    I have these set up on a keypad with radio buttons - so when you turn on outdoor, the button for night turns off, and vice versa.

    However, in homeseer, if Night is already on, and I send an on command for All Outdoor, Night stays on, and vice-versa.

    It would be nice if I could set up an event to change the status of a scene without actually sending any commands.

    try the following action:

    Execute the command: &hs.setdevicevaluebyname "Mudroom Morninglinc", 100

    parameters:
    setdevicevaluebyname {device name}, {device value to set}

      And this will only set the value in homeseer, but NOT actually send any insteon commands?

          That works perfectly. Thank you! I like homeseer more and more the more I use it.
