Tasks based on a time trigger. 

A time trigger performs an action at a certain time. Conditions that can be used are days and presets. Time triggers replace the 'timers'. Some example for the tasks based on time triggers: 

  • Every day at 7:00 the kitchen lights should turn on. 
  • Ten minutes after sunrise the lights in the living room can go out. 
  • On weekdays the Invited Smart lock should go to 'night mode' around 22:00. 
  • When I'm at home, in the weekend, the HeatLink should go to 22 degrees at 9:30 en de radiator valves in the living room also to 22 degrees. 


There are many other tasks to think of that are relevant for the time triggers. 


For this example. 


IF it's 15 minutes before sunset, and it's weekend, and I'm at home... 

 ...Then the garden lights should go on.
