When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Routine controlling another routine
« on: September 27, 2020, 07:33:10 pm »
Hi folks.
First of all, sorry for my bad english. This is not my main language.
So, I'm trying to create a routine that could enable or disable a second one. Can anyone tell me if that is possible?
Let me explain:
I have some Sonoff devices that switches on/off some decorative LED lights on my living room. I have created two routines: "SUNSET", that turn on the lights at sunset, and "MIDNIGHT", to turn off the lights at midnight.
The fact is, I'm often travel to another places and spent 2 or more days out. So, naturally, I don't want to lights get on when I'm away.
I'm trying to create a routine that could disable the "sunset" routine speaking "Alexa, I will be away" (this way the sunset routine will not be active and the lights will not turn on), and a routine that enables "sunset" again when I got back and say "Alexa, I'm back".
Can someone help me?
