I'm attempting to streamline my v4 setup into v5.
One of the features I was looking forward to was multiple conditions, so I started with my motion sensors.
The DOCS state:
A simple example might be a motion sensor triggering a light - you might want motion detected by the motion sensor to turn on a light, but only between the hours of 6pm and 11pm. You can currently do that by creating a schedule that enables a trigger at 6pm and another one that disables the trigger at 11pm. But that's 3 moving parts (two schedules and the trigger). Using a condition, you can reduce that to just a single trigger and the following condition...
The trouble is that any automation regarding lights [ON] doesn't involve a static Time, they involve ±Sunset. And any automation regarding lights [OFF] doesn't involve a static Time, they involve ±Sunrise.
6pm in the winter is wildly different to 6pm in the summer, so for 11.75 months a year the timing is off!
I'm currently using 2 scheduled variables [±Sunset] [±Sunrise] and a trigger from the motion sensor.
Is there a way to duplicate this using conditions? Do we need more condition options?
