Variable Astro Sunset event offset

I have a rule that switches my lights on using a -60 mins offset to astro binding sunset event. However, if it is overcast, it is darker, and I would like to increase that offset in this circumstance… is this possible? I am using OpenWeatherMap Binding

Yes, possible. Here’s one way: have 2 astro things running, one for each offset. Always turn on your lights on the later one, and only turn the lights on the early one if it is overcast.

See Design Pattern: Time Of Day as well. You can make a more generic solution that way.


Awesome, thank you for that, I hadn’t realised I could set more offset events. :+1:

You also find the alternative channels of use - e.g civil disk, nautical dusk
