Hi all, to follow on from my first driver, here is my first app. Again, hope this is useful to someone out there.
It is (yet another) app for scheduling lighting, but what might make it different is how you specify time periods, and behaviours - which makes it quicker/easier to set up than doing the same with the likes of rule-machine:
Timings are written simply and quickly like this:
sunrise-20 - 0720, 13:00-14:00, sunset+30 - 00:00
It can be set to be active at all times, or only for certain modes.
It can be set to constantly force lights on/off, or to only turn them on/off at the start or end of the timing periods you defined.
More info on its features and how to use it is in the README
I suggest the best way to install is using the Hubitat package manager.
Alternatively, install in the traditional way via the Hubitat Elevation web based interface:
- Click "Apps Code" then click "New App" then "Import"
- Enter the Import URL then click "Import"
- Click "Save"
- Repeat steps 1-3 for the child app:
NOTE: You must install the parent app before the child app.
This app and any others I write in future are available here on GitHub under the BSD 3-clause open source licence. Any suggestions/feedback from more seasoned app authors will be gratefully received!
