I am still fairly new to the rules engine and I’ve dug through the documentation and done some google searching but have not found what I’m looking for or not seen it.
I have a few rules that seem to be working that are created in the Paper UI. I want to move these to the .Rules file so I can add more rules.
I have two rules I could use some help with:
If Astro Sun Data (Astro:sun:home:daylight#event) Starts
Turn on Bed Light
Only If gPresence = ON
** This is the part I’m unsure about **
ONLY IF day of week = MON-FRI
Not sure if I can use Cron with " 0 0 0 * MON-FRI ?"
Can someone help to explain how to drive a rule only on weekdays?
*Goal = The bed light turns on Mon-Fri to get ready for work but will not turn on on the weekends to sleep in.
I have a rule firing at sunset to turn on lights if I’m home.
I’d like the rule to turn on lights when the gPresence status updates if it’s between sunset and midnight
** Rule Concept as I understand it **
gPresence Status = ON
Den_Light = ON
Condition: (Unsure Part)
IF Current Time > than Sunset and Current Time < Midnight
- Goal = that when I come home after sunset and my phone connects to the wifi the rule will fire and turn on lights while I get out of the car.
Thanks for the help guys.
