I’d like to set automation which will open fibaro roller shutter 3 at specific time only if the weather is not stormy\rainy this day. is it possible ?
Thanks!

I know everyone promotes Webcore (including me), but that would be really easy using Webcore. However, probably not worth the learning curve just for that single task.

I don’t know Webcore, probably will need to learn a lot on it to use. Is there a faster quicker way to make this work?

IDK how much easier this will be, but you can have IFTTT turn on/off a “Bad Weather” virtual switch. Then the automation in ST would be simple “open the blinds at 5:00am only if the bad weather switch is off”

Wunderground IFTTT trigger:

I need more help with it I don’t know IFTTT

I do something similar using webcore.
