display sunset time


ErnstH
 Share

Question

Hi 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.

    Hi 10der,

    Looks good though quite complicated. But I understand it.

    I pasted it into my script and it returns an error, that hmstr seems to be undefined yet:

    [DEBUG] 20:46:20: nil nil
    [DEBUG] 20:46:20: 2020-08-11 20:46:20.915000 [ fatal] Unknown exception: /opt/fibaro/scenes/5.lua:47: attempt to index local 'hmstr' (a nil value). Shouldn't that as well as margin be defined before the function?

    Nearly there I guess...

    Have you tried creating a block scene that activates say 10 mins after sunset (there is a standard block for this), and then converting that scene to LUA?

    Hope this VD can help you better understand the LUA code for what you want. 

     

    I've found this VD a while ago but I don't know the creator, all the credits are for him or her ?

    creating a block scene

    That is not the problem.

    I do have such a code: if os.date("%H:%M", os.time()+tonumber(BeforeSunset)*60) == sunsetHour   This works fine.

    But I want it the other way around: with a print of debug command I want to display the time lamps go on today.

    Thanks for trying to help.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I looked into that. Not just what I'm looking for, it is code I already have. Just displaying sunset time.

    Not with a calculation.

    I think I need something like os.date("%H:%M", os.time() = sunsetHour - tonumber(BeforeSunset)*60). But I need a better syntax.

    Does it work on HC3, is this a QuickApp?

     

    I tried adding the file but it just adds as a generic device with no code by the looks of it (com.fibaro.genericDevice)

    @theuksbest sorry. you can't.

    setting icons for generoic deivce is tricky.

     

    btw, check global params for a new global param value.

    thanks

    That's okay, that's what forums should do sometimes. ?

    Meanwhile, my question remains unresolved.

    @theuksbest now some magic.

    find in your HC3 device with Humidity (for example)

    ok found!

    change a new icon

    uploading nice icon for sunset

    done.

    do not change device.

    just check what a new icon uploaded.

    the next step - find icon id

    Please login or register to see this attachment.

     

    [M[ - 1040

     

    open your QA.

    find self:updateProperty("deviceIcon",  and finallu change to 1040

     

    self:updateProperty("deviceIcon", 1040)

    10der is king :)
    If the HC3 was the old fw (5.031), I couldn't change the icon for the "com.fibaro.deviceController" device (QA).
    After upgrading to fw 5.040, this tweak can be used.
    Thanks.
