I can easily beat that: 12pm-6pm daily: $.49976/kWh
…and that’s why I went for solar
This uses an RGB bulb to change color based on the temperature outside. It uses SmartWeather device as the temperature sensor. Colors advance through the spectrum from 0F-100F, getting bluer for cold, redder for hot, and all in between. If it’s below 0 or above 100, the bulb flashes three times.
Has anyone done a basic “slow fade outdoor lights on at sunset, off at sunrise” piston?
Nice Mind sharing some backup codes for the top tiles? @ady624 just added execute for tiles too so we can make tiles to turn off lights
umm, that would be illegal, don’t do it… LOL
Dang, those are some pretty precise thermostats
Would you mind sharing how you got the ‘All Device Status’ to list like that?
Cool. Here’s mine. Different levels for different lights. Trying a slow 1hr fade at first for some, because I know my dimmer ramps are hyperbolic. Fading off the outside bulbs in the morning also.
Here’s my Weather Status Piston that reports Weather Status and sends SMS to my cell daily at 7:00 AM for a full list of the $weather functions that anyone could use. I think I started out with something else that had something similar but I added much more to it. $weather doesn’t have illuminate rating for the sunlight level so you would have to use another Device to get that reading like Nest Weather I use but I think other Weather Devices (Virtual or Physical can get that reading too.
I haven’t gotten around to using the Tiles yet for this but that is would be time consuing with 22 different weather statuses.
Here’s what the Piston State looks like for me:
If you don’t mind sharing for me and others.
I am also interested in your plex integration!!
They look amazing. Please share the pistons
Could you perhaps please tell us how to get the forecast text to refer to degrees Celsius (as opposed to Fahrenheit)?
And is is possible to set a location to be used for the forecast other than the hub’s location by way of gps co-ordinates?
OH YES PLEASE!!!
