Google Calendar

Hi All,

I rent out my basement suite on Airbnb. I’d like use the Google Calendar Scheduler to automatically turn up the thermostat on the nights that I have guests, and then turn it back down when they leave. Unfortunately, it looks like the Google Calendar Scheduler requires you to put the openHab commands into the event description of each calendar entry. Not an option when the calendar is automatically generated by Airbnb, and manually creating a duplicate calendar in the correct format kinda defeats the purpose of automation.

Is there a way (workaround? undocumented features? a different binding?) to simply look at the calendar, then return a true or false value based on whether there’s a calendar entry for that day?


Take a look at the CalDAV binding. I haven’t used it, but it appears to cover your needs.
