    How do I make something in an event loop until it reaches a certain point?

    I want to play bird sounds from my sonos in the morning and have it start low and gradually increase to a certain volume. I know that I can use EasyTrigger to set the device to increase the volume by, say +3. But how do I get it to do this every 5 minutes until it reaches volume 10?

    One way:
    Create a virtual device that is turned on by the event that starts playing the bird sounds.
    Create another event with a recurring trigger of 5 minutes
    - with a condition that your virtual device is on
    - and a condition that the volume is less than 10
    - with an action to increase the volume by 3

        Instead of getting fancy you are only going to have 3 five minute intervals of sound. so you could
        1st event set volume to 3
        start playing the sound
        wait 5 minutes then start next event

        2nd event set volume to 6 (sound is already playing)
        wait 5 minutes then start next event

        3rd event set volume to 9 (add 3 and it goes over 10)
        wait 5 minutes then stop sound
