I assume you've already got your zomfy z-wave device inside InControl and you can control it manually?

You'll need to go to your multi-sensor and create a device based on the Luminance value that shows up. Do this by clicking the blueish icon next to it, then give the device a name. Your scene trigger will use this device - watch it to change value. You'll probably need to figure out what the values mean for your house and then create the scenes accordingly. For example, if you want to trigger on that value being 0 (no light) and open the shades, then your trigger would happen at value 0 and you'd add the shade device to your scene with the appropriate value for "open." Create different scenes for the different luminance values you'd like to watch for.
