OK. Make sure you do a complete flush of your browser cache, as well (Ctrl-F5 or whatever you normally do on whatever system).

Still have a problem. Notice that sunset has happened and it is waiting for sunset?

Disabling and re-enabling made it start cycling. Now...to wait and see how tomorrow goes....

When waiting for sunset, the cycle delay times are applied to randomize the start, so by default, it may start any time from 5 to 30 minutes after the computed sunset time.

I have a ridiculously stupid question . . .

I have searched for the plugin/app and installed it.  I see the device it has created, and I can toggle it to enable/disable it.  But where is the configuration tab that the documents reference?  I've looked and looked and I can't find it . . . probably because it's staring me in the face . . .

Thanks!

I recently noticed that the lights that are cycled by DEM don't get the dim level I configured. They mostly get 100% on, not dimmed. But sometimes it seems to work.
I tried to configure the dim level both with the GUI sliders and manually in the Devices field of Variables, same result.

Running version 2.6.

Any clues?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Hmmm. That's probably the result of a fix I put in for certain Fibaro and Qubino dimmers. I'll back that out. Want to test it for me and see if that gets it?

After living with this plugin for a couple of months now, i think it's great!  I know i've thanked you before, but just wanted to reiterate that thanks!  I think it is almost perfect, but i would love to add a couple of things:

  • One would be to be able to run a different scene depending on which house mode the plugin was in when it was turned off/completed.
  • And Two would be the abiltiy to kick off a scene before the cycle begins.  That way i can turn off the motion detection inside that gets tripped by the lights turned on.

Other than that, this plugins is the bomb.

UPDATE: i just noticed that i could trigger a scene on the change of mode from DEMII, disregard the above requests!

@Thorden, here's a link to the latest dev version of the DEMII core on github:

https://github.com/toggledbits/DeusExMachina/blob/develop/L_DeusExMachinaII1.lua

Download the file by clicking the "Raw" button. If that just displays the file, hit the back button, then right-click on the "Raw" button and choose your browser's equivalent to "Save Link As..." to save the file locally (plain text).

Then, use the Vera uploader in the UI at Apps > Develop apps > Luup files to upload the file to your Vera.

You'll then need to reload Luup: go to Apps > Develop apps > Test Luup code (Lua) and enter luup.reload() and submit it.

My guess is that that will resolve your dimmer issue.

Excellent.

By the way, @sebby, I haven't forgotten you. I read your suggestions and both are on my short list.

Awesome Rigpapa, no real rush now that i found the workaround, but having them in there would be great.
