    Would it be possible to add a +/- time to the enter/exit a schedule trigger ? So enters the schedule time range +x minutes or - x minutes, or leaves the schedule +/- minutes. That would give some more and easier flexibility tan having lots of schedules

    I know you'd prefer the option in Easytrigger but meanwhile I guess you could simply trigger a small script daily and assign the result to an HS device. Then use it with Easytrigger. Not overly complicated.

    ​​
    sub main()
    dim t
    t=hs.SolarNoon
    hs.SetDeviceValueByRef(1234, t, True)
    end sub

    Thanks for the pointer. However, the reason I posted here is because I would like to see this "The time is x minutes before/after SOLAR NOON" so I don't have to revert to Node-RED, scripts, etc. It actually should be something that is pretty easy to implement for spud because apparently solar noon = (sunset - sunrise)/2 + sunrise. The plugin already knows sunrise and sunset. So with relatively little effort (I hope) it's possible to save a lot of time for custom solutions, which is really what this plugin is about, avoiding scripts and custom solutions.

    Btw, aa6vh mentioned a post by sparkman that calculates the angle. It's pretty interesting and I could use that. But again, it would be so much easier to have "solar noon" as an option in EasyTrigger than having to create virtual devices, adding a script, adjust IDs and then creating events to update the devices.

    Request - plugin function to expose the list of device references in a group (as a list of integers).

    Reason - I have a script that simply counts the number of "on" lights and sets the status of the master control (e.g. "Four lights on"); at the moment it takes a CSV parameter. Easy Trigger groups made the events much nicer (no more IF this light OR that light .. x8) and being able to use the same group in the script would finish the job properly.

    I know I could do this with HomeSeer functionality (particularly HS4 categories), but even then I would want the definition of the group to have a single source = Easy Trigger.

    THIS! A workaround but I agree don't have an event running that long (even a few seconds), have it fire off another so it can have a delay.

    I wonder why this EasyTrigger call doesn't support being a delayed action? Might be an API limitation perhaps.

    I am not seeing any option to use easy trigger with delayed action and delayed action is only for events and not easy trigger. I would still have to have multiple events to do what I want.... trying to avoid that

    If you are replying to my request, then I'd say that I am aware and already use Jon00's plugin. It does not do what I was asking for.

    I need to disable an event, not a plugin, and I need to disable it for only a limited amount of time and then have it become re-enabled automatically.

    I am currently doing what I want using a combo of multiple events that enable multiple other events in combination with scripts that utilize hs.disableevent and hs.delayedtrigger but it's quickly getting out of hand with the number of events I have to juggle. A simple built in option to "disable event for X seconds/minutes" would be greatly appreciated.

    Would love to have an option for disabling event for x seconds/minutes after which the event would then be renabled.

    I have a round about way of doing this now but having it built in would be most helpful. HS3 here and no plans to move on to HS4 any time soon.
