Yes, me again.
Everything is working fine, but the last of my ActiveHome Pro died during a recent Windows 10 update. Everything *timers, macros) were on that program and would no longer function. I now have the macros functioning on HG but have been struggling with the scheduler for the last two weeks
This is what I would like to do.
A4 is an AM466 appliance module controlled by (in theory) cron.
A1 is a motion detector to a TM751 PL interface
A4 is plugged into the wall socket, the (a1)TM751 is plugged into the (a4)AM466
This is what I am trying to do.
if a4 on then [timed}
if a1 on then [motion sensor]
output d2 [garage/outside lights] on then
wait 5 minutes
output d2 off
This is what happened once with sundown/sunup. A4 on from sundown - sunup but only (at the most) on for 1 minute, then off
Using scheduler set for time on/off in HG the A4 unit will not react to time settings.
A1 MS16 motion detector works quite well when connected through plugin timer but we are far enough north I need to manually reset the timer about once a month to keep the light working properly. In June we have light 5:00AM until 10:00PM. December 9:30AM till 4:30PM so there is a wide range of daylight hours. Cron would be the ticket, but it doesn’t seem to work right on my setup. do I need to install any of the program groups or widgets? Possibly SmartLights? How do I do that?
Is there perhaps a different way to set this up that I’m just not seeing?
Thanks again for all your help.
