Always set to Night Light with arrival light automation

Hello. I struggle to get automation that works the way I want it to. I have a light in the hallway that I appeared just before sunset at 1% and stays until 23:00 – it’s simple and works great. Also, what I would like is for this light to turn on 100% when someone gets home at night – this part is also light.

The hard part is that they work together. I would like the light to turn on 100% for 15 minutes, when someone gets home at night, then goes out. However, if it is before 11:00, I would like the light to return to 1% instead of off. I tried setting an automation to set a scene with 1% light if the light is off before 11pm. It works if I turn off the light alone, but it doesn’t seem to work by automation.

Anyone have any advice on what else I could try?
