So I have been using Tasker a lot however I’m on the T-Mobile jump program and I switch from phone to phone quite a bit. I was going to reinsert all of my Tasker profiles however I decided to see if SmartThings had a better method yet of presence sensing. So I decided to relink my Android device as my presence sensor. I’ve been testing this for about a week now and it seems to be more accurate then all of my Tasker/AutoLocation profiles.
Everything worked great however I had a Tasker profile that would wait 10 minutes and turn off the porch lights. At first I tried creating a rule in SmartThings but it would turn the lights off constantly after 10 minutes even if I manual turned them on. I figured out what I need to create is a SmartThings Virtual Switch.
Below is my configuration.
Step 1. Create a virtual switch to be the timer.
