Everlights full solution

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007fc3ea168310>

This is a full solution for controlling Everlights (https://myeverlights.com/) from OpenHAB, completely replacing their finicky app. You just need the IP address of your controller (which you can find in their app in settings). Note that I have two zones that wrap around the house in opposite directions, so for zone 2 I “reverse” the pattern to keep it in the same direction as zone 1. This a capability their controller/app doesn’t have (I do need to see if I can shift the zone 2 pattern to be completely seamless where they meet up at the opposite corner). You can either manually control everything via a sitemap, or you can use whatever triggering rules you want to trigger presets automatically on holidays. I have it set up to come on with all my other exterior lights at sundown, if it’s in my defined list of holidays (in holidays.rb).

This is a good “Today I built” type posting but it’s not really a tutorial or solution. It would help the community if you added not just what you accomplished, but how you did it. Configs, Items, rules, and all that.

Well look at that… somehow my link disappeared. The solution is at https://gist.github.com/ccutrer/8894f62eadeaae145eebbab0a49adb1f
