Scene: active, inactive and on

Post by Jimbolaya » Wednesday 04 January 2017 2:18

What's the difference between setting a scene active or turning it on? What does it mean to set a scene inactive? The blockly code will let me choose to set a scene active, inactive or on. Thx!

I have a simple event running that opens and closes my shades on sunset and sunrise. I have used the option "on" and it works. I did not work with the option "active". I have no idea what the difference is, though...

I always use "on" for scenes.
And "on" or "off" for groups.
running domoticz 3.4834 on rpi2, with
Hue bridge / bulbs.
lightwave rf sockets, mood controlers, sensors & contacts.
Home bridge / Siri.
Ha bridge / echo Alexa.
Hard wired alarm system - setting home / away status.

Next: harmony hub.

So no one knows where 'Active' is used for? :D

Same here, Blockly scripted scene with Hue lamps only works with 'on'.
If I understand why 'activate' does not do the job, I'll post it here!
