Random "Security" offset for scheduled events


Recommended Posts

30 years ago, my CP-290 that ran my X10 world was capable of this:  For programmed events, there was a "security" option that would randomly offset the programmed event by 5 minutes or so earlier or later.  The point was to make your home look occupied by not having lights turn on at the exact same time each day.  I'm surprised that this feature has been AWOL on most HA systems ever since, especially one as comprehensive as the ISY.
