Tasmota Run on Timer Rules: Triple bathroom light button

Summary

Use of a triple pushbutton, running Tasmota to do simple run-on functions in a bathroom. Can be adapted to other purposes, but shows the the ruleset and SetOptions needed.

Button Type Used

Zemismart KS-811
  • A three pushbutton device with Tasmota installed (in this case, a Zemismart KS-811 Triple)
  • Controls Main Lights (1), Mirror Lights (2), Extract Fan (3)
  • Prevents mirror lights from remaining on
  • Does a “run on timer function” for extract fan, with a couple of run options depending on number of times pressed.
  • All carried out inside the device with rules (no MQTT or external control needed)

First Rule

  • Combines 3 actions in rule1
  • If Timer 2 finishes, set Power2 OFF (I like to match the timer numbers etc with the output number. This isn’t necessary)
  • If Timer 3 finishes, set Power3 Off
  • If Button 1 is pressed once, toggle Power1 output (just turn the main lights on/off on press)
rule1 
on Rules#Timer=2 do power2 off endon 
on Rules#Timer=3 do power3 off endon 
on button1#state=10 do power1 toggle endon

Second Rule

  • Combines 1 actions in rule2
  • If button2 is pressed once, toggle the output2 and start the timer running down from 3600 (i.e mirror lights go on for one hour max)
rule2 on button2#state=10 do backlog power2 toggle; ruletimer2 3600 endon

Third Rule

  • Combines 3 actions in rule3
  • If Button 3 pressed once, toggle output 3 (the bathroom fan). Also, set ruletimer3 to start counting down from 600 seconds (10 minutes)
  • If Button 3 pressed twice, toggle output 3 and set ruletimer3 to start counting down from 3600 seconds (1 hour)
  • If Button 3 is triple pressed, toggle output 3 and set ruletimer3 to start counting down from 4 hours.
rule3 on button3#state=10 do backlog power3 toggle; ruletimer3 600 endon  
on button3#state=11 do backlog power3 toggle; ruletimer3 3600 endon
on button3#state=12 do backlog power3 toggle; ruletimer3 14400 endon

Setup Actions

Turn the rules on

backlog rule1 1; rule2 1; rule3 1; 

Restrict button actions to 1-5 presses or HOLD (no special functions)

setoption1 1

Allow immediate single button press detection (this is the default)

setoption13 0

Number of 0.1 second increments for HOLD detection (it is 40 by default, we aren’t using this yet)

setoption32 60

Detach all buttons from activating relays. It will just send MQTT messages and we will use rule to activate relays.

setoption73 1

Full rules and actions set

This is the full set, that can be copy and pasted (with backlog to run them at once)

rule1 on Rules#Timer=2 do power2 off endon on Rules#Timer=3 do power3 off endon on button1#state=10 do power1 toggle endon

rule2 on button2#state=10 do backlog power2 toggle endon; ruletimer2 3600 endon

rule3 on button3#state=10 do backlog power3 toggle; ruletimer3 600 endon on button3#state=11 do backlog power3 toggle; ruletimer3 3600 endon on button3#state=12 do backlog power3 toggle; ruletimer3 14400 endon

backlog rule1 1; rule2 1; rule3 1; setoption1 1; setoption13 0; setoption32 60; setoption73 1

Other useful info

Button States
10  =  1 short press
11  =  2 short press
12  =  3 short press
13  =  4 short press
14  =  5 short press
3   =  LONG press

Check how long the rule timers have to go
