I am trying to create a simple automation for my lamp to act as a nightlight.
I have a dimmer switch plug into which controls a dimmable lamp. I want the light to turn on for 5 minutes whenever a Fibaro Motion Sensor ZW5 senses motion, but only at night.
I gave up on using the lux measurements on the Fibaro motion sensor, since they update too infrequently. Instead I just rely on time. I tried using the Smart Lighting smartapp to set the interval when the light should come on between 1:00 am and 6:00 am.
The light turns on on motion but at any hour of the day, not just 1:00 am to 6:00 am. So i would be walking around full daylight and the light would come on.
I have tried deleting and reinstalling the app, resetting the hub, nothing has worked.
I am on GMT +3:00 (Bucharest) time.
I think it’s a fairly simple automation, I am very surprised I can’t get a time limitation to work.
