Rule to trigger only once

Hi guys,

Is there a way to have a rule only trigger once per day? I have a rule setup to activate lights upon arriving home and then turning off after several minutes. The rule is triggered after the garage door is opened and location is home. However, I don’t want the rule to keep firing if we have been home and somebody opens the garage door again. Thanks!

Hi @Brian_Woods, welcome to the community. :raised_hands:

You can achieve this by using a True/False variable in your existing rule as the condition to only execute the lights commands if this variable’s value is true, and set this variable value to false after the light commands. And you can create another rule to reset this variable value to true everyday at midnight using the timer trigger. See screenshots below for the rule examples.

Let me know if this helps.
