[userModule] Season switch (Unmaintained)

Post by maros » 25 Oct 2015 19:29

This module creates a virtual device that displays/stores the current season. This information can then be used by other modules to create smart automation rules (eg. different window ventilation behaviour in summer and winter)

Whenever seasons are switched an event will be emitted. Seasons can be switched either manually, or by adding a date by which the switch should happen automatically.

The events produced by this module can be caught and processed by the EventWatcher module.

Attention: I do not maintain this module anymore.

Tested with Z-Way version v2.1.1

This module does not work correctly. I left out the dates for spring and autumn and specified "05/01" for summer and "10/01" for winter (without " of course). The app's status is shown as "winter" though today is 05/29, which should match 05/01 < 05/29 < 10/01. "summer" would be the correct state.

ADD: everytime I switch the app between summer and winter manually I get "TypeError: undefined is not a function" in the logs. The logfile contains:

To be honest, I'm not actively developing this particular module anymore (and that is also the reason why it isn't widely available via appstore). In VERA i had a winter/summer switch, and I thought that I might need it in Zway as well, but it turned out that my other modules (Blind Control and Window Control - wich will be released soon) work well without a season switch.

Patches/Pullrequest still welcome though

Hi maros,
do you have a hint for me, what I could repair in the code?
