Now that I got my Ambient WS-2902 PWS up and running, I have done away with Mode Manager. I made this RM and credit goes to another poster with his version of a RM that is similiar. Now my auto lighting is based on real environment info, not time based. Much better for home lighting.
When I am armed away, I have a RM that pauses this rule so my away lighting rules are not affected. Hope this is help to some people.
