      Recurring with conditions. Then select the days as the conditions.

        How would you setup the retrigger time in the recurring event?

          Select the days using the check marks. Then add a condition of time of day or sunrise sunset. Enter the time. You can also set it up like the example posted.

            Why recurring?

                Doesn't have to be. There are many ways to skin that cat.

                  I do this with two events. One turns on a virtual device early in the morning on garbage day. Monday, in my case. The second event is conditional with a retrigger time of 1800 seconds (30 min). When my conditions are met (after 3:30 and virtual device is on) I get a reminder every 30 min until I turn the virtual device off.

                    UM,

                    What sets the 30 min. repeat?

                    That is a good idea for my garage door reminder. At night, if the garage door is open, I get reminder texts to close it, after 9:30. However, I have it sending my the messages every 5 minutes. I am not sure how I went about this.

                    I think for some other things, like the garbage can, that is a great idea. Then I could even tie in a RFID tag to this, so if the garbage can's RFID tag is out of range for 20 minutes, reset the virtual device.

                      I have the Do Not Retrigger box checked with a time of 1800 sec.

                        I was bored yesterday and scribbled out a small script I call "Daily Reminders" in about a half hour. I run it once a day during the morning announcements.
                        What it does so far is check a list of reminders currently stored in an ini file (may move this to some other form of data file later) and announces those items that match today's date. When an announcement matches, the date on that item is updated to the next scheduled date if it's recurring, or if it's a one time reminder, ie. an appointment, it gets deleted from the file.

                        For instance: Garbage is collected here every other Thursday.
                        The schedule for this would look something like 10/4/2012,14,text to speak.

                        It's still a work in progress, but I was just wondering if there might be any interest in such a thing. If so, I can post it once I've finished adding bells and whistles (I have a few in mind).

                            Neil, if you'll send me your email address again, I'll send a preliminary copy for you to test. I'm happy with it as is; I just want to gauge it's usability for someone else.

                              Hi,

                              I went about it a slightly different way, I have an event that is called when i get home (house virtual status device becomes Occupied) and it is a Wednesday, since almost all the time i work Wednesday's so would not be at home until i got back from work.

                              When i get home, and it is a Wednesday the below is triggered, it then works out if it is an even or odd day, and says whether it is a rubbish night, or rubbish and recycling night since the recycling alternates every 2nd week.

                              The code below was found within this forum, and is essentially a copy and paste, i can't recall who did it (otherwise would credit them) but it works perfectly for me!

                              Code:
                              Sub Main(parm as object) 
                              Dim r As Integer 
                              
                                      r = DatePart("ww", Now) 
                                          if r Mod 2 = 0  then        'even week
                                          If WeekdayName(Weekday(Date.Now)) = "Wednesday" Then 
                                             hs.Speak("Tonight is just Rubbish Night",true)
                                          End If 
                                      End If 
                              
                                     If r Mod 2 <> 0 Then      'odd week
                                             hs.Speak("Tonight is Rubbish and Recycling Night",true)
                                      End If 
                              End Sub
