"only during a certain time" condition not working


(Mike C) #1

New to ST. I’m on the new version (not Classic) with a third generation hub (GP-U9995/VLGDA).

I’m using the Smart Lighting feature to run routines for my porch light, but none of the “only during a certain time” conditions seemed to be followed.

I have two separate routines involving my ST motion sensor triggering both a LIFX mini bulb and Sengled bulb between sunset minus 30 mins and 11:59pm, and a third routine between 12:00am and sunrise plus 60 mins.

Motion and/or no-motion is activating the routines correctly, but all three are ignoring the “only during a certain time of day” condition, and the routines seem to run all day based on personal experience, and WebCORE monitoring.

Thanks for your help.

Sunrise and sunset depends on the system knowing your location.
Make sure that the geo location is set in your location.

Thank you for the reply. It does look like my geolocation is set, but perhaps I’ll experiment with a hard time value to see if the problem persists.
