If I can suggest an Option to disable the turning off the switch on sunrise (maybe have a Disable in the drop down list might be a good way to support this..

Thanks for your hard work.. :)
I updated the module, to disable turning on/off the switches or dimmers you'll have to select '0' in the drop down menu for how long before or after the switches or dimmers are set to be turned on. The updated module has been uploaded on the first post.

Thankyou very much :-) For me I only turn on the lights in the morning when we are getting up for work.. Thus although you module was perfect for nights it did not quite match our morning routine.. What we would have needed was turn on the lights @ 6:30 if only before sunset and turn off the lights @ 7:30am.. Sadly I not seen this level of automation integration although I am hoping that will eventually be on the roadmap..

@islipfd19: I would like to notify you that in v2.0 we have changed api slightly and you will need to adopt your modules. There are only few changes. I'll post a big ChangeLog within a week or two about all changes. You can also have a look on our github for changes in modules/*/* files.

Please stay tunned. Hope these changes will not harm you - them will make the engine better.

I got a Razperry this week and some z-Wave modules. One of the lights I'm controlling are at the end of my driveway, which I want to come on at dusk and shut down at dawn, so your module fit the bill since dusk and dawn tend to move throughout the year... however, it didn't work for me.

I looked through the logs and what I found was:

Code: Select all

I tested the URL that gives the sunrise and sunset times - I took 'http://api.openweathermap.org/data/2.5/weather?q=" + this.config.city + "," + this.config.country' and replaced " + this.config.city + " with my city and " + this.config.country" with 'United States', and I got data back that included "sunrise" and "sunset".

Any thoughts on what I may have done wrong?

I've been trying to make a SunriseSunset module also before seeing this thread. Though I've come quite far with the help of mourner:s library:
https://github.com/mourner/suncalc

This library mathematically calculates the sunset/sunrise with todays date and longitude and latitude given (no requirment of internet connection).

I was forced to integrate the code in the module as is have not found a way to import it (I'm a C++ guy and Javascript is new to me). Anyway, I started a test run now to see how it works in a couple of days. I'll add optional time values for user who wants offseto t the time backwards and forwards (i.e. turn on the lights 30 minutes before sunset). Also my module is controlling scenes, not individual switches.

Edit: If anyone are interested I can send to the code to you, but for now I first want to test everything.

This module may have incompatibility issues with the recent 2.0 version. Still looking into it.

First test results seem positive. This module will work as is for the 2.0.0 release.

Hi,

Thx for this module it based on the description it does exactly what I need.
But I'm having problems to get it displayed in the gui

From the first Post in this thread

"In the Automation menu, you should now see the new module 'Sunrise / Sunset'. Fill in your City and Country and add the switches you'd like to control during these times of the day. I have two switches and a dimmer that are activated. I also provided two drop down selections that contain 10, 20, 30, 45 and 60 minute intervals. The first drop down will turn off your selected devices X number of minutes past sunrise and the second will turn your devices on X number of minutes prior to sunset."

What GUI is this referring to?
Is it the Z-way Home Automation UI?
If so I can't se the sunrise sunset module in there.
I see from the Z-way server log that it was loaded

"[2014-12-16 17:45:59.496] [core] Loading module SunriseSunset from userModules/SunriseSunset
[2014-12-16 17:45:59.501] [core] Executing script: /*** SunriseSunset Z-Way HA module ******************************************* ..."

I see no errors but still I can't see the module in the GUI
Any ideas on this?

I'm using a brand new Raspberry B+ with new Razberry Gen 5 card & running the v2.0.0 version of Z-way-server

Though I found the module to work with 2.0.0, there is an update I need to make to the module.json file so that it can be selected in the new 2.0.0 version. I hope to do this some today.
