    Yes, there is. You will need to use a different trigger, perhaps a recurring trigger. Then add a condition (And If) that the time is within the time range. (Within a range is not a trigger, since it is true over an extended time.)

    Event only firing on initial time

    Newb here. Using EasyTrigger, I have made a schedule that runs from 21:00 - 06:00 the next day for all days. I then created an event to use that schedule to dim the lamps in my master bedroom between those hours. The problem is, the event only fires at 21:00, and does not consistently check to see the light's status. So, if the lights are On before 21:00, the event triggers and the lights Dim as expected. However, if the lights are turned on AFTER 21:00, the event doesn't fire.

    I noticed in the Event "IF" statement, that the only option is: "If the time ENTERS this scheduled time range"; which says to me, it only checks this state at 21:00 and not throughout.

    The question is: Is there a way to say "If the time is WITHIN this scheduled time range"; thereby covering the entire time, not just 21:00?
