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.

Can't figure out how to construct routine
« on: September 28, 2021, 06:04:23 pm »
I have a device hooked to my garage door opener that will open or close the door when activated. It does not know if the door is open or closed. If I say Alexa "garage door" it will open it if its closed or close it if its open. I also have a Wyze contact sensor on the door which knows if its open or closed.
Here's the problem. I want to set a routine such that at 8pm every night it will close the garage door IF its open. If I just set a routine to activate the garage door opener at 8pm then it will open it if its already closed!
The data is all there, I know if the doors open or closed and I can activate the door, but darned if I can figure out a routine to close it IF its open !!! Would IFTTT help?
Any help greatly appreciated (if it's possible at all)
