Mode failed to auto-execute tonight. How to safeguard against missed events?

I came home tonight to find that for some reason, the house had not flipped over to “evening mode”. I have a number of lights come on at sunset, but strangely all the lights were off and the house was dark.

What safeguards can I put in place for things like this? I’m thinking semi-regular “check ins” to see if things are doing what they should. For instance: “If time is 10pm and mode is not Evening, then set mode to Evening.” This should correct the missed command.

Similarly, this should be done periodically for other statuses.

If you’re using CoRE or WebCoRE, I have a piston that safeguards this for me.

I use CoRE for almost everything! :slight_smile:

Here you go. I’ve been running it for almost a year and its never failed to catch a problem.
