  2. If it’s 8 timers only you should do the math to align the timer up to whenever you have set it once off first off. After that 24 hour repeating timers will do.
  3. Yep similar concept. My method just aligns it to the minute rather than randomly whenever the timer starts.
  4. Sorry this driver does not support custom headers
  5. Method 1 - Utilise os.time() and a initial timer set up a reoccurring timer to the period you want (this lines it up to the exact second. You will need to do a bit of math eg every minute/five/half hour/hour) and utilise a table of a schedules (time stamps) to determine when you want to fire a schedule) Method 2 - similar to above but rather than using timestamps utilise os.date to figure out the day of the week, month, year if you want to do reoccurring based on any of those factors. Hope that helps.
  6. In general i would stay away from programming in this method as tracking would be lost. You can hide rooms from navigator. The programming is really simple. Just add in a room. Set the endpoint to zone 2. Add in a media scene tying the room power, volume, mute and source selection. Program custom button (or experience button) to activate / deactivate the media scene. All in all it should take you 30-60 seconds to complete all of that programming.
  7. The best method of doing this is to create a media scene that joins the rooms together and enable / disable that media scene from the custom button. That will work perfectly.

  9. All good. I appreciate the concern
  10. We struck a deal with Staub. They did not steal anything.
  11. Current is at that point in time. Note though the agent polls once every 15 mins so data may be 15 mins stale (which for weather should be ok)
  12. If you want a map you could possibly utilise a webview driver to display a webpage on your T3/T4 touchscreen. Note it only works on T3/T4. The Agent requires the following to be setup for data to be imported. Lat Long Project Temperature Scale (to Celcius or Fahrenheit) Open Weather Key In regards to the advantage. Control4 has been asking us to do this so that we can clean up projects a bit. here is their reasoning.
  13. We have been using open weather for years. This agent is actually a rewrite of the driver we have had in a much better and easier to use way.
  14. Chowmain - Open Weather Agent OpenWeather is a team of IT experts and data scientists that has been practising deep weather data science since 2014.
