Title: Need to set a routine to start at sunset or sunrise not specific times.
Post by: Phawx on October 15, 2018, 06:16:06 pm
trying to control my back porch lights to start at sunset each day. Since that time changes all year I would like to avoid setting s specific time. Right now I am running a GE smart switch with Zwave to a smart things hub controlled through the echo.

Can't the hub do that without involving the echo?

You might try to use IFTTT and have it do the sunset/sunrise routine with your switches.

Create new ROUTINE,  enter a name for it, click the + "WHEN THIS HAPPENS" select SCHEDULE, then sunset or sunrise.

Just FYI: I am able to do this with my individual plugs that use Tuya Smartlife app.  A little tricky to set up because the instructions are a bit lacking.
