Equivalent to "Script" in HomeKit?

Cupertino, October 11, 2023

Hi all, I just found out about the controller and using homebridge to provide fake switches in HomeKit. It works great, but I'd like to set up an automation for something like a "script" like in the home assistant. So: At 22:00 run the goodnight scene daily (finished) The goodnight scene turns off all the lights, but I can't lock the door, otherwise I have to confirm it manually. So put in a fake switch for "Lock Door" and the goodnight scene references this fake switch ( done) Automation for when this fake switch turns on, lock the front door, then I want this switch back off (but I can't -I'm referencing it) I'm stuck on the last piece - do I still need another scene that disables the fake switch and reference that scene in the door lock switch automation? I also tried in the Controller app but couldn't figure it out. The way scripts work in Home Assistant is that the switch stays on until the script finishes, then turns itself off. I'm trying to avoid shortcuts because I want everything to run locally on the hub.
