This requires a Dark Sky sensor with the condition
precip_intensity that tells if it’s raining or not. You could also experiment with other attributes such as
Turn on a light in the living room when it starts raining, someone is home, and it’s afternoon or later.
automation: - alias: "Rainy Day" trigger: - platform: state entity_id: sensor.precip_intensity to: "rain" condition: - condition: state entity_id: all state: "home" - condition: time after: "14:00" before: "23:00" action: service: light.turn_on target: entity_id: light.couch_lamp
And then of course turn off the lamp when it stops raining but only if it’s within an hour before sunset.
- alias: "Rain is over" trigger: - platform: state entity_id: sensor.precip_intensity to: "None" condition: - condition: sun after: "sunset" after_offset: "-01:00:00" action: service: light.turn_off target: entity_id: light.couch_lamp
