Newbee Question: restricting motion sensor alerts to a specific time period?

the conditions in the if statament not ok, fix help me?


(v7minh) #3

i have similar… :grin:

def motion_CD(evt)
{
def currTime = now()
def timeOfDay_begin = timeToday(timeB)
def timeOfDay_end = timeToday(timeE)
log.debug now()
log.debug timeOfDay_begin
log.debug timeOfDay_end

//log.debug(“date time=$dateTime - ${timeOfDay_begin.time}”)
if (evt.value == “active”)
{
if (currTime >= timeOfDay_begin.time && currTime <= timeOfDay_end.time && sel == “on”)
{
log.debug "84 made it this far"
alamH.both();
schedule(now()+10000,alamF) // turn off in 10 second
}

}

}

Si first you don’t put the comparators in ( ). Also you have to compare a time it understands. Use the timeToday() to do this. Then to compare use the timeToday().time.

After I edited, the program does not run, you can help me continues @David_ROOP . thanks


(Võ Thanh Minh) #7

I am OK, thanks @David_ROOP very much.


(Võ Thanh Minh) #8

When I choose to 5:00 PM (this day) to 4:00 AM(next day), because I see timeToday (), which means that today.

I can test app but the ask can more fast! thanks

(vtms.nvnguyen) #9

It is not OK, when I set time period from 7:30PM to 5:30AM.
With mean 7:30PM(this day) to 5:30AM(next day)
Help me, thanks

A quick work around would be something like this. I haven’t tested it though. However something like this may work.
def motion_CD(evt)
{
def currTime = now()
def timeOfDay_begin = timeToday(timeB)
def timeOfDay_end = timeToday(timeE)
def timeOfDay_last = timeToday(23:59)
def timeOfDay_start = timeToday(00:00)
log.debug now()
log.debug timeOfDay_begin
log.debug timeOfDay_end

//log.debug(“date time=$dateTime - ${timeOfDay_begin.time}”)
if (evt.value == “active”)
{
if (currTime >= timeOfDay_begin.time && currTime <=timeOfDay_last .time && currTime >= timeOfDay_start.time && currTime <= timeOfDay_end.time && sel == “on”)
{
log.debug "84 made it this far"
alamH.both();
schedule(now()+10000,alamF) // turn off in 10 second
}
}

}


(Võ Thanh Minh) #11

Look like OR (||)

if (currTime >= timeOfDay_begin.time && currTime <=timeOfDay_last .time) || (currTime >= timeOfDay_start.time && currTime <= timeOfDay_end.time) && (sel == “on”)

Thanks @David_ROOP

Sorry, what are you guys trying to achieve?

@vtminhvt don’t forget the order of operations. A || B && C is the same as A || (B && C). Don’t you mean (A || B) && C?


(Võ Thanh Minh) #13

I am edit my app, but error two line. maybe syntax?

@David_ROOP @ady624


(David Roop) #14

Yes sorry about that, I think we can simplify it even further!
if (currTime >= timeOfDay_begin.time || currTime <= timeOfDay_end.time && sel == “on”)


(David Roop) #15

delete those, you don’t need them.


(Võ Thanh Minh) #16

OK, I try now, thanks u

If you are trying to compare if time is within range, you need to break it up in two cases:

  1. range start is before range end
  2. range start is after range end

In either case, if comparing date variables (or unix timestamps), you need to make sure the date is current. This is because the settings variable preserves the date on which you set it. Also, be aware that the settings keeps the time info in local timezone. now() returns time in UTC.

The way I compare times, once all have been brought to local timezone, is this:

int rangeStart = dateRangeStart.hours * 60 + dateRangeStart.minutes
int rangeEnd = dateRangeEnd.hours * 60 + dateRangeEnd.minutes
int timeNow = timeNow.hours * 60 + timeNow.minutes

def isInRange = rangeStart < rangeEnd ? (timeNow >= rangeStart) && (timeNow < rangeEnd) : (timeNow >= rangeStart) || (timeNow < rangeEnd)

Also, I recommend using local timezone for all time comparisons to account for DST changes… Hope I didn’t make any typos, writing this on an iPhone.


(Võ Thanh Minh) #18

Can not.

When set time period from 1:00AM to 4:00AM but current time is 7:00AM, its wrong because currTime >= timeOfDay_begin.time.

(Võ Thanh Minh) #19

Hi all, maybe?

if ( (timeOfDay_begin.time>=timeOfDay_end.time && currTime >= timeOfDay_begin.time || currTime <= timeOfDay_end.time)
|| (timeOfDay_begin.time<=timeOfDay_end.time && currTime >= timeOfDay_begin.time && currTime <= timeOfDay_end.time)
&& (sel == “on”) )


(David Roop) #20

isn’t your begin time 19:00?
