    I have added 4 time conditions:

    • The time is after (sunrise +/- T)
    • The time is before (sunset +/- T)
    • The time is after (sunset +/- T)

    Great! Two questions:
    - It doesn't seem to work for group actions (time is always reset to 0). Is this a bug of by design?
    - What about Between Sunrise +/- ? hour to Sunset +/- ? hour? I tried to combine the conditions to make a "between" condition but it doesn't seem to work (before sunrise +/- and after sunset +/-, one is always false )

    Random wait?

    Hi Spud,

    Never got a response on this request. Is this something you want to consider?

    Thanks again!

    Suggestion for an advanced timer

    Hi Spud,

    i was thinking something , would it not be nice to add a advanced timer to this plugin ?
    so we can trigger also trough script and maybe other options ?
    Because the one what is build in homeseer doesnt work with scripting..

    I think many people would like it ,

    How u think about it ?

    Thanks, works great! I've gotten accustomed to using schedules, but this is a nice option to have.

    Randy you are indeed correct. Sorry Conditions is what I would like please.
    I always confuse them!
    And I agree about the first 4.

    Before Sunset +/- ? hour
    After Sunset +/- ? hour

    Before Sunrise +/- ? hour
    After Sunrise +/- ? hour

    Between Sunrise +/- ? hour to Sunset +/- ? hour
    Between Sunset +/- ? hour to Sunrise +/- ? hour
    I think you want conditions. The first four are already HS triggers. The first four would work best as ranges rather than specific times. For example:

    The time is after 30 minutes before sunrise
    -or-
    The Time is before 30 minutes after sunset

    I am going to attempt to do this on a schedule, but do think this may be a nice feature to have. This is another great plugin of yours.
    Keep up the hard work

    Hello Spud. Very interesting plugin, feature set so far seems to help make up for some basic native HS3 shortcomings during my testing.

    A few possible requests, if they are possible and maybe useful?

    1. Add an "EasyTrigger: If a 'Device Type' has had its value:

    a. just set or changed
    b. changed
    c. (any other scenarios that are useful and feasible)

    HS3 appears to maintain a list of known device types you could generate a selection list from.

    A scenario for me is if:

    Device Type = "Z-Wave Motion Sensor" has a value that was set or changed, then run SCRIPT xyz.

    This would help to eliminate having to create an event for each motion type sensor or remembering to modify any events for a global device type when one is removed and re-added.

    From my experimentation the only way around this is to write a script using a callback and monitor for the Device_Type_String while enurmating the device class of all objects.


    2. If you are able to support "extended" type HomeSeer variables?

    Ultrajones looks like he added other vars to his plugins to make up for more HS3 shortcomings:


    "Replacement Variable By Device Ref"
    eg, $$DCR:{ref}: = Device Last Change

    I use these in some of the plugins that I bought by him.

    I think it would be neat for these to be supported by more plugins.


    3. if you are able to set some kind of variables that define:

    a. reference # of the device that caused EasyTrigger to fire.
    b. equivalent of "DeviceScriptChange"

    Apparently in some other recent post, MrHappy indicated homeseer broke sending this similar data to scripts as parameters.

    At the rate HS3 fixes things, we'll have better luck having plugin authors like you put in features to make it for losing it.


    Apologies in advance if others have requested similar features in the past.

    Thanks!

Then I have several different template schedules for each global schedule that I use events to load. Some are based on work, off work and vacation while others are seasonal. I use them for lighting, power, hot water and heating. It has been working very well.

    For holidays I set the occupancy schedule to "non-work" and load the appropriate schedules. Same with vacation and different work schedules.

    For holiday lights for example, I have a single schedule and a virtual device that allows them to run within the schedule.
    Randy, could you explain how you have setup these global schedules? I can certainly use weekly scheduling of Spud's plugin, but when it comes to calendar date based scheduling I can not wrap my head around it. For example I want to define a schedule for Dec20-Jan1 for every year and call it vacation schedule, how do I do this with Spud's plugin?
    cheers.

    Compare Device's old value to new value.

    There is a trigger for checking if a device's value "was X and becomes Y", but I would just like to compare if it is going up or down. This woud be similar to the compare 2 devices values using >,<,=, etc.

    So, maybe it could be "Comparison between devices old value and new value" and it would be like:

    Device: Old value is [>, <, =, <>, >=, <=] New value (option +/- value?)

    Spud,

    GREAT plugin! Forgive me if this plugin can already do this, if so i'm not sure how.

    Can yo do a schedule with a schedule?

    EX:

    "Summertime" - between two dates and then run between times on your existing schedules?

    The idea is I have certain things run during the holidays, summer, winter, school and then out of school.
