My Last WebCore App To Port Over: Ghost LIghts

Down to my last app to port over and it is the most complicated. Basically, it turns off and on lights randomly within the home over a specific period of time and based on sunset. It ends by returning everything to the status it was when things started.

I’m not sure if it’s still limited to only SmartThings’ Android app, but there’s a labs feature called No Worries While Away that might achieve what you’re looking for. I haven’t personally tried it, so I can’t really speak to how well it works though:

Another popular approach in the SmartThings community is to use the Away Lighting feature of Amazon Guard. It’s supposed to use machine learning to understand your patterns and provide a more realistic simulation of away lighting.

I have a similar webcore piston that I haven’t figure out a solution for yet either.

Tha No worries while away lab only offers set times, no randomization.

While this may not be true for everyone, I tried the away lighting feature in alexa guard but found my lights were comng on during the day as well as at night.

I tried switching out of WebCore a few months back and tried No Worries – since I had something better I found it lacking.

Without Do Whiles and Device loops I don’t think I can port this over to Sharp Tools as it is, but at least it is the only one left.

Never heard of Alexa Guard, will have to take a look.

You don’t have the randomization you do with webcore but here’s an alternative that works.
