Home Public preview: Trigger multiple all day home automation based on away

Community Member

Hello all,

When I am out of town for a weekend as an example, I'd like to:

Have lights turn on in AM, lights turn off in afternoon. Turn on in the evening, then off again at bed time.

I can do this by making a bunch of separate routines. And then enable each one individually before I leave. But there are 6 or so, so that's a bit "not automated".

Why can't I trigger them all based on me being away. I don't have an away Starter. Is this coming in the future? Is there something  I am missing?
