  • Turn on/off a flag

    How do I turn on and off a flag with the Omni plugin without having to have two separate buttons to control the flags in the Omni panel automation? For example, I want to say "Alexa turn on company-visiting," and conversely "Alexa turn off company-visiting."

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    I would create a HS virtual device that is a simple on/off device that is controlled with Alexa. Once you have that working, create an event that when the virtual device changes to on or off, control the OMNI button.

      I need to turn on/off a flag with one event. Can I do that without having to create two separate buttons to turn the flag on and off?

        It's possible that EasyTrigger can 'toggle' an on/off button.

          Any chance of adding a future enhancement to turn on/off an Omni flag? I'm surprised this hasn't been asked for before now.

            I think someone else did request using Flag On or Off instead of 0-255. I'll add it to the list.

              "...On or Off instead of 0-255."

              I'm confused. Is there currently a way to set a flag's value with the Omni plugin?

                Yes - in the event action, choose "Control a Device", then select the OMNI flag to change
