Help, how to turn on light in rule after After a certain hour?

I created a rule when I get home then the blinds open
My question is how can it be done that after a certain hour the lights will turn on and not at a specific time
Thanks in advance

Start by posting your rule and showing us what you’ve tried.

At a high level, when the rule triggers, check to see what time it is and if it’s the right time run, otherwise return.

this is the rule:

rule "raz at home"
    when
        Item razAtHome changed to ON
    then
        if (sapirAtHome.state==OFF)
        shelly_shelly25_roller_68c63afb13b6_roller_rollerpos.sendCommand(100) 
        shelly_shelly25_roller_483fda4ce5bb_roller_rollerpos.sendCommand(100) 
        shelly_shelly25_roller_10521cf9964f_roller_rollerpos.sendCommand(100) 
        shelly_shelly25_roller_68c63af93058_roller_rollerpos.sendCommand(71) 
        shelly_shelly25_roller_68c63afb0e45_roller_rollerpos.sendCommand(53) 
        shelly_shelly25_roller_68c63afb1a9c_roller_rollerpos.sendCommand(100) 
        shelly_shelly1_f4cfa27683a2_relay_output.sendCommand(ON) 
       
    end

And I want when I arrive after 6pm then the light will turn on:
shelly_shelly1_f4cfa27683a2_relay_output.sendCommand(ON)

Perhaps add an if statement like this…

	if (now.getHourOfDay() >= 18) 
		{ 
		shelly_shelly1_f4cfa27683a2_relay_output.sendCommand(ON)
		}

Why not work for me?
the item razAtHome not change to OFF when i try this rule:
(for test i have fake GPS app on my android)

rule "raz at home"
    when
        Item razAtHome changed to ON
    then
        if (sapirAtHome.state==OFF)

        shelly_shelly25_roller_68c63afb13b6_roller_rollerpos.sendCommand(100) 
        shelly_shelly25_roller_483fda4ce5bb_roller_rollerpos.sendCommand(100) 
        shelly_shelly25_roller_10521cf9964f_roller_rollerpos.sendCommand(100) 
        shelly_shelly25_roller_68c63af93058_roller_rollerpos.sendCommand(71) 
        shelly_shelly25_roller_68c63afb0e45_roller_rollerpos.sendCommand(53) 
        shelly_shelly25_roller_68c63afb1a9c_roller_rollerpos.sendCommand(100) 

       	if (now.getHourOfDay() >= 18) 
		{ 
		shelly_shelly1_f4cfa27683a2_relay_output.sendCommand(ON)
		}
       
    end

I think you need some extra curly brackets:

rule "raz at home"
when
    Item razAtHome changed to ON
then
    if (sapirAtHome.state==OFF){
 
       shelly_shelly25_roller_68c63afb13b6_roller_rollerpos.sendCommand(100) 
 
       shelly_shelly25_roller_483fda4ce5bb_roller_rollerpos.sendCommand(100) 
 
       shelly_shelly25_roller_10521cf9964f_roller_rollerpos.sendCommand(100) 
        shelly_shelly25_roller_68c63af93058_roller_rollerpos.sendCommand(71) 
        shelly_shelly25_roller_68c63afb0e45_roller_rollerpos.sendCommand(53) 
        shelly_shelly25_roller_68c63afb1a9c_roller_rollerpos.sendCommand(100)

        if (now.getHourOfDay() >= 18) { 
		 
   shelly_shelly1_f4cfa27683a2_relay_output.sendCommand(ON)
        }
    }
       
end

Your rule would start when the item razAtHome changes to ON, in the rule there is no code that would switch this item to OFF.

thanks, it work
