New Topic "Wiki Feedback"

Greatly appreciate all the help here but.. I'd like to see the topic "Wiki Feedback" or equivalent.

 

I see an issue with the program "Light Data" in that "Stormy Days" will not run if Module 'Climate' Light doesn't exceed value within the folder "Everyday" time conditions. The following day "Wait to Change Outside Lights" status will have remained False and "Stormy Days" doesn't run.

 

I've also seen an error with instructions for the motion detector (which was corrected I believe.)

 

People could comment and offer suggestions or corrections to the resource.

 

Thanks,

 

Jon

Hi Jon,

 

I am so very sorry but can you elaborate please? The program Everyday is predicated upon time being between sunrise and sunset the same day. What does this have to do with the next day?

 

With kind regards,

Michel

 

Could be I'm confused :roll: .. I'm using a variant of the program, lights are not in a Scene because I use the lights in other programs that operate throughout the

day and night.

 

If after sunset and the program "Wait to Change Outside Lights" has a False status i.e., "Stormy Day" ran last, it will remain False into the next day. "Clear Day" is the only means of changing the status of "Wait to Change Outside Lights" to True. If the Scene has changed to off by another program (lets say running for evening lighting) and the day begins off as Dark and Cloudy, "Stormy Day" will not run because of the "False" status of "Wait to Change Outside Lights."

 

Like I say... could be I'm confused but this has been my observation.

Hi Jon,

 

I think I understand what you mean but perhaps differently. Basically "Wait to Change Outside Lights" will only work if there's an alternating dark/clear. So, when the folder turns false (sunset), there are no other programs that can toggle the status of "Wait to Change Outside Lights" and thus it may never run again.

 

Let me check with Subroutine and see if I am getting this correctly.

 

With kind regards,

Michel

The program gets stuck under certain conditions.

 

It would make things easy if I could change the status of a program directly without calling "Then" or "Else."

Like...

 

If
      From    Sunset  +  5 minutes
       To      Sunset  +  6 minutes (same day)
   And Program 'Wait to Change Lights' is False

Then
  Set Program 'Wait to Change Lights' to True

Else
  - No Actions - (To add one, press 'Action')

 

I'm using a not so elegant method that seems to work..

 

Clear Wait to Change Lights

If
       Program 'Wait to Change Lights' is False
   And Module 'Climate' Light <= 5 
   And Program 'Stormy Day' is False
   And Program 'Clear Wait to Change Lights' is False

Then
       Run Program 'Wait to Change Lights' (Else Path)

Else
  - No Actions - (To add one, press 'Action')

Hello Jon,

 

You are correct. I use a schedule to turn the lights Off in the morning.

 

If
       Time is Sunrise + 15 minutes

Then
       Run Program 'Wait to Change Outside Lights' (Else Path)

Else
  - No Actions - (To add one, press 'Action')

 

 

Thank you for pointing that out.
