  • Curtain automation

    Hi,

    I would like to create an automated event that opens the curtain from September to March at sunrise. And from March to September at 7am.

    With my old system I would say, if time is sunrise, and if date is between September and March, open curtain. else open curtain at 7.

    Now I tried something like

    trigger: if sunrise execute either a or b only if conditions are met.

    A: if date is after 2 September Y and if date is Before 27 March Y. open curtain

    B: if date is After 27 March Y and if date is before 2 September Y. open curtain

    This doesn't really work.

    What would be the best way to achieve this?

    Thanks a lot.

    How about:

    If time is sunrise
    and date is before 03/28/yy

    orif time is sunrise
    and date is after 9/2/yy

    orif time is 7am
    andif date is after 3/27/yy
    andif date is before 9/3/yy

    then open curtains

        Why do you care about the date? (Curious)

          Even with daylight savings sunrise can be way too early during summer in some locations.
