This routine works like a charm, everyday all the time, as the time reaches first then the light level drops (Var #25).

However, if its a cloudy day, and the light level drops first and then the time follow (sunset -120 mins), the routine would not execute.

Please help.

0254 - IF Variable #25 becomes < 195 // Living Room Light
0255 - AND Time of Day is > Sunset offset -120 minutes //
0256 - THEN Timer #30 = 1 // start timer
0257 - IF Variable #25 becomes > 195 // light level goes high
0258 - AND Time of Day is > Sunset offset -120 minutes //
0259 - THEN Timer #30 = 0 // stop timer
0260 - IF Timer #30 becomes > 100 // ligh level stays low for 2 min
0261 - THEN X-10 House B / Unit 6, Turn ON // Living Rm
0262 - THEN Timer #30 = 0 // stop timer

In that case you need to another routine: one where the time triggers the timer if the light level is low. Something like this (added lines 257 to 259):

0254 - IF Variable #25 becomes < 195 // Living Room Light
0255 - AND Time of Day is > Sunset offset -120 minutes //
0256 - THEN Timer #30 = 1 // start timer

0257 - IF Time of Day becomes > Sunset offset -120 minutes //
0258 - AND Variable #25 is < 195
0259 - THEN Timer #30 = 1 // start timer

0260 - IF Variable #25 becomes > 195 // light level goes high
0261 - AND Time of Day is > Sunset offset -120 minutes //
0262 - THEN Timer #30 = 0 // stop timer

0263 - IF Timer #30 becomes > 100 // ligh level stays low for 2 min
0264 - THEN X-10 House B / Unit 6, Turn ON // Living Rm
0265 - THEN Timer #30 = 0 // stop timer

Guy:

That makes sense, will add to my routine, thank you. However there is no: If Time of Day BECOMES> Sunride offset -120.

I am having another probelm with DST, a week or 2 ago the time never changed over on Sunday, I set the controller timer to PC timer, then yesterday, Sunday, the time advance 1 hr. ????

Thanks

You're right, sorry about that! Just use "If Time of Day BECOMES = Sunrise offset -120" instead.

Are you using the latest executive version? You need to be running application version 3.18 for the time to change on the new dates.

The latest code editor is 2.00e5 (not e3). Have you just downloaded from that link and are seeing 2.00e3?
