    Condition on the first of the month?

    Am I missing something or is there no way to condition an event based on the day being the first of the month? I have to give my dog heart worm pills every month and some times my lack of mental acuity gets the better of my responsibility regarding this task and I don't catch it until a few days later.

    Trigger on a time each day then add the day of month as a condition. It’s one of the built in time conditions.

      Unless I'm having a senior moment (I'm allowed senior moments now that I'm 40..... Right?) with that you can only condition on a Monday - Sunday scale and not a numerical day.

          I do it in a script. I take the current date and subtract a day, and then compare the months. If the months are not the same, then it's the first day of the month. There may be a way to do it with a HS or EasyTrigger condition too, but I like scripts

            You can also do it with the function DateTime.Now.Day, which returns the day of the month as an integer.

                Yep. Was having a senior moment. Don't know why I didn't check my other events that fire on specific days like St. Patrick's day and so on.

                Thanks for the reminder!

                    I've been using HS for quite a while and NEVER knew that condition existed! Thanks.

                        There are a lot of day/date specific conditions:



                        As pointed out above the standard date picker can also be set for the first day of every month and every year using wildcards.

                          First I want to say thanks to everybody that is helping on this forum. I am learning new things everyday by reading here.

                          I will try to explain my problem here since it is in the same category. I have two boys that are living with me every second week. Boy one comes every second Wednesday and leaves next Wednesday and boy two comes every Thursday and leaves next Thursday. I have created two virtual devices that tells me if they are home or away. Is there a time/date trigger that can activate this or do I need to make a counter to counter every Wednesday and Thursday and activate the virutal devicees with that and reset the counter on the second Wednesday and Thursday?

                            I do something like this using Google Calendar and Blade's Google plugin.

                              Is that every two or three weeks, or is it the second or third week of the month?

                              If its the former, then I think using a counter is the best solution.

                              If the latter, then you can always calculate whether a specific day of the week is in the second week of the month by looking at the day. If the day falls between 8 and 14, its the second week of the month. Likewise, if it falls between 15 and 21, the third week.
