Grid Connect light dimming schedule automation

Hi All,

 

Just thought I would post a simple automation chain for setting a schedule to dim down  the Arlec globes a set times and days you require.

I work late nights on rotation and when I turn the ensuite light on I don't want to the light on full brightness waking up the better half and I don't also want to be fumbling for my phone to dim it down so I set the 2 following automations.

 

Someone might know how to combine them into 1 and that would be fantastic.

 

By setting your active period down the bottom you ate telling the automation when you want it active.

 

You can have the light switch flicked off and flick it on within that period and it will dim to lowest setting or whatever you have it set and it will remain in that state for that set period.

Re: Grid Connect Light Dimming Schedule

Hi @CSParnell

 

Is there a provision to program it on a day-to-day schedule? For example, if you're working late on Wednesday and Thursday it will run program 2 for low light, but for the rest of the week it will run program 1 for full brightness. If there is such a function you can program it for the rest of the month based on your schedule.

 Maybe  a request feature to Arlec for future release for a monthly calendar would be awesome
