display sunset time
ErnstH posted a question in Scenes and InterfaceHi all, I would like to display a debug message with the time of sunset + an x amount of minutes. So there needs to be a calculation. I have a few scenes whose start is dependent of the month, turning lights on earlier or later. My debug message should be something like "today lights will be on at 21:15". That 21:15 is the calculated time. I have these declarations at the start of scenes: local sunsettime = fibaro:getGlobalValue("SunsetTime"); local sunsetHour = fibaro:getValue(1,'sunsetHour') But I can't figure out how to do this. Shouldn't be very complicated, but i'm not good in LUA programming with time. Hope someone can help me out.
Multiple 'Sunsets' a day ?
wienog posted a question in Home Center 3I read about several problems with sunset and sunrise on this forum but didn't encounter (unless I didn't search well enough) this one: I have a scene that sets some variables at sunset, one immediately and others some 20 minutes later. I put also an action in for sending me push- and emailnotifications, just to check if everything was working ok. The scene works verey well and sends me a Push and an e-mail at the exact moment of sunset. But then at random times (or do they SEEM random only) during the following night and day I get the same push and emails. Any explanation ?
Work status Scene
amatt posted a question in Scenes and InterfaceHello, I am trying to build a Lua script that will tell Fibaro if I am working from home, working at home or off work. Here is what I have so far but I need some help to get the scene trigger when either I am at home or at work when all the conditions have been met at the specific times. Does anyone have a similar scene or suggestions? --[[ %% properties %% events %% globals --]] local currentDate = os.date("*t"); local time=os.date('*t'); local ct=os.date('*t'),os.date("%H:%M",os.time()) if (fibaro:countScenes() > 1) then fibaro:abort(); end if ((fibaro:getGlobalValue("AndyPresentstate") == "Home") and (currentDate.wday == 2 or currentDate.wday == 3 or currentDate.wday == 4 or currentDate.wday == 5 or currentDate.wday == 6) and ((ct>= "08:30") and (ct<"17:00")) ) then fibaro:setGlobal("Working", "At Home"); fibaro:debug("working at home"); elseif ((fibaro:getGlobalValue("AndyPresentstate") == "Home") and (currentDate.wday == 2 or currentDate.wday == 3 or currentDate.wday == 4 or currentDate.wday == 5 or currentDate.wday == 6) and ((ct>= "17:00") or (ct<"08:30"))) then fibaro:setGlobal("Working", "Off Work"); fibaro:debug("off work"); elseif (fibaro:getGlobalValue("AndyPresentstate") == "Away" and (currentDate.wday == 2 or currentDate.wday == 3 or currentDate.wday == 4 or currentDate.wday == 5 or currentDate.wday == 6) and ((ct>= "08:30") and (ct<"17:00")) ) then fibaro:setGlobal("Working", "At Work"); fibaro:debug("Working at Work"); end

NTP and Time Problems in Turkey
yuzo posted a question in Home Center 2Hello, we're located in turkey and the time in turkey is GMT+3 all over the year without summer / winter time. As of 29.10 we have false times on HC2 and all scenes etc. are running false. I have tried to setup different time server with turkey (gmt+3) on localization page but it does not get the correct time. Setting the time manually works in interface but scenes and sunset times are false ... i want to have it over ntp. Does someone has same problems? Is there a setting i've not seen or is this a bug on HC2 side?
Sunrise and Sunset time incorrect
amatt posted a question in Scenes and InterfaceI have a scene that gets the sunrise and sunset for the day. I recently noticed that both sunrise and sunset times are not correct. They are about 30min - 1 hour off from what they should be. has anyone else seen this issue? Does anyone know if fibaro is going to fix it? @T.Konopka
HC2 & OpenZwave Class: MCO Home MH7 Time Synchronisation
Tom1890 posted a question in Urządzenia Firm Trzecichhallo, Ich habe mehrere MCO Home MH7 Thermostate in meiner Wohnung installiert. Nach dem Neustart des HC2 wird die Uhr der Thermostate zurückgesetzt. Die meiste Zeit ist die Uhr auf UTC-Zeit statt CET eingestellt. Nachdem sie den Support von MCO Home kontaktiert und gefragt haben, wie sie die Zeit mit LUA zurücksetzen könnten, sagten sie mir, dass sie OpenZWave-konform sind. Ich sollte innerhalb der Klasse "COMMAND_CLASS_TIME_PARAMETERS" den Befehl "TIME_PARAMETERS_SET" verwenden. Weiß jemand, wie ich ZWave-Klassen ( http://www.openzwave.com/dev/classOpenZWave_1_1TimeParameters.html ) in einem LUA-Szenario aufrufen kann ? Danke & Mit freundlichen Grüßen thomas
Check if current time is between two times
Edward Trapp posted a question in Scenes and InterfaceHi I'd like to share very handy function to check if time is between two other times. This is very useful for example for checking if motion sensor should at this time of day switch warm or cool lights. There are two functions IsTimeBetween(StartH, StartM, StopH, StopM, TestH, TestM) - which checks if TestH:TestM is between StartH:StartM and StopH:StopM IsItBetween(StartH,StartM,StopH,StopM) - this one is a wrapper to check against current time of day. Example of usage with RGBW controller and Motion sensor: This solution isn't idiot proof so if You put absurd hours You will get absurdal behaviour. It isn't also proof to daylight savings time. Otherwise it works just fine. Function like this should come as a standard in Fibaro API. Hope someday it will. @Admin - for some reason I couldn't start new topic in crowds solutions so I've put it here.
Theo posted a topic in Tutorials and GuidesFibaro works with sunrise values as a string such as: "07:30" You can calculate it also yourself: And @jgab also writes extensively about his event model: ...but to get more experience and explore the possibilities and pitfalls I want to run my own "poor mans" main scene for at least a year. Now I want to execute commands which are related to sunrise or sundown or seasonal changes. For instance: in summer I want my curtains open at 07:00, in winter around 08:30 with a nice sinusoidai curve. Therfore I want some decimal hournumber with adding, multiplying: --convert a decimal hour to a timenumber from 0 to 2359 function makeTime(decimalHour) local hours=math.floor(decimalHour % 24) local fraction=math.floor((decimalHour-hours)*100) return hours*100 + math.floor(0.6*fraction) end --add minutes to a timenumber function addTime(timenumber,minutes) return makeTime(math.floor(timenumber/100)+((timenumber % 100)+minutes)/60) end --main loop --currentTime is a numeric value like 700 currentTime = tonumber(os.date("%H%M")) --once per day set seasonal times if (currentTime < 1) then --approximate calculation solarmonth = tonumber(os.date("%m")) - 0.7 + tonumber(os.date("%d"))/31 --minimum will be 7, maximum 7+1.4=8.4 ("08:24") --for the southern hemisphere 1-math.cos(... decimal_openTime = 7 + 0.7*(1+math.cos(math.pi*solarmonth/6)) --but I want a timenumber like 700: makeTime(decimal_openTime) end if (currentTime == openTime) then --open curtains end -- 5 minutes later I want to do something also if (currentTime == addTime(openTime,5) then --something end This lets you set up a loop in a convenient way.

Can I do time calculation, without using epoc format?
Teza posted a question in Scenes and InterfaceI want to subtract "tid_entre" from "tid" and check if it is longer than "entre". fibaro:setGlobal("Tid_entre", (os.date("%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S",fibaro:getValue(37, "lastBreached")))) local entre = "00:00:30" --hh:mm:ss local tid_entre = fibaro:getGlobal("Tid_entre") local tid = os.date("%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S") [DEBUG] 16:06:52: Variabelen entre = 00:00:30, VariableType = string [DEBUG] 16:06:52: Variabelen Tid_entre = 2018-10-17 14:00:44, VariableType = string [DEBUG] 16:06:52: Variabelen tid = 2018-10-17 16:06:52, VariableType = string Is it possible to do this without using epoc numbers for time?
ggoetz56 posted a question in Home Center 2Once upon a time all of use had troubles with system time. But this is long ago - Ithought. I worked on some ideas with heating panel and have to synchronize FGT-001 with it because to work proper. I thought i have solved the issue and suddenly I recognized misbehavior again. While searching with heatpanel, FGT and so on I see that HC2 systemtime differs to MESZ. At the very moment I go to the Configuration Menu systemtime of HC2 corrects its self just by bring up the menu. I use "de.pool.ntp.org" for NTP at location topic. I also recongnized for the first time "This site can't use google maps correctly" , but i don't feel the need to go to location topic much often. Anyone else with system-time issues nowadays?
Lua Date, Time, month code shortcuts
AutoFrank posted a topic in Tutorials and GuidesHi, Was searching to display the date and time parts and came across this %a abbreviated weekday name (e.g., Wed) %A full weekday name (e.g., Wednesday) %b abbreviated month name (e.g., Sep) %B full month name (e.g., September) %c date and time (e.g., 09/16/98 23:48:10) %d day of the month (16) [01-31] %H hour, using a 24-hour clock (23) [00-23] %I hour, using a 12-hour clock (11) [01-12] %M minute (48) [00-59] %m month (09) [01-12] %p either "am" or "pm" (pm) %S second (10) [00-61] %w weekday (3) [0-6 = Sunday-Saturday] %x date (e.g., 09/16/98) %X time (e.g., 23:48:10) %Y full year (1998) %y two-digit year (98) [00-99] and used on conjunction with the normal os.date you can display/use any part of a date/time fibaro:debug(os.date("%A")) fibaro:debug(os.date("%b")) fibaro:debug(os.date("%d")) gives [DEBUG] 20:30:46: Thursday [DEBUG] 20:30:46: Jul [DEBUG] 20:30:46: 14 and the time is (os.date("%H:%M:%S")) might save other newbee's like myself from too much head scratching -Frank
