Hi all, I'm using several scenes that act as my house alarm. One scene checks our presence based on mobile phones and sets a variable accordingly (home/away). When everybody is "away" another scene will arm all door/window sensors. Advantage of this setup is that the alarm is automatically armed / disarmed when we leave home/arrive. No need for a keypad or whatsoever to arm/disarm the alarm. Sometimes people (such as parents or housekeeper) visits our house while we are not at home. The house is "armed" and they cannot disarm the alarm. I'm looking for a VD that I can use to set the periods where the alarm should be armed automatically when nobody is home. At other moments the alarm should not arm even though nobody is home. For example: Do not arm the alarm every week on Tuesday- and Thursday morning between 8:00 - 12:00h. Preferably I link my HC2 to my google Calender and let HC2 check if I have an appointment of which the subject matches a certain name, such as "housekeeping". If subject X(housekeeping) is found, a global will be set such that the alarm during that period will not arm. I installed a scene called Google Calendar Synchronization 1.2 to load my google calender, in HC2 but I get a 404 error on my ICS link. I wonder if Google stopped with this service for free google accounts. Suggestions how to make this work, either via calender or VD? Thanks for help! Regards, Jules
