Enabling timer directly turns on devices



Hi All,


I am new to this forum and think I have a simple situation which should be obvious, but does not work as intended. I hope you can help. The setup runs at my parents, so I can't quickly verify things, but will try to get speedy results. Setup is running on HC2


Situation: They have a water pump which is intended to run between 7:00 and 8:15 every day when the timer is enabled. The setup consists of four block scenes:

1: Timer_on -> when run it turns a variable called timer_pomp to 1.

2: Timer_off -> likewise sets the variable to 0 and also turns off the pump

3: Auto pomp aan -> Intended to turn the pump on at 7:00 if variable timerpomp =1

4: Auto pomp uit -> Turns pump off at 8:15 (regardless of timer_pomp variable)


What happens however, is that the timer_on scene directly turns on the pump and not wait for the appropriate time to come. If expected this to be because the timer_pomp variable was set as trigger variable. I unchecked this box, but no difference. Any help is appreciated, please find the scence blocks below;

Hi Marc. Did you sort it out as yet?

I have a similar problem with my heating. It goes on and off at certain temperatures, but I also want it not to go on during the night.

Meaning timed also.

Do you have an idea how I can do this with Block scenes?
