Switch off does not work

Post by steffo » Monday 14 May 2018 20:13

Hello,
I am trying to switch off my devices at a certain time "On Time" but it does not get trigged.
If I use "Fixed time" it triggs fine.

Can someone share any information on how to fix this?

I hope I don't need to go away from Domoticz as I like it apart from this issue.

Possibly silly question but have you selected the correct days for the On Time command 'Everyday, Weekdays, etc

I have read about problems with timers in the beta versions of Domoticz but I haven't any experience as I stick to the stable versions as I can't afford for things not to be reliable.
For what it's worth I use 'On' and 'Off' timers and they are fine.

Not much help I know.
Could you post a screen shot of your 'Off' timer page, it might show something you may have missed.

Here it is

I really thought I had a stable version.. - I suppose I need to redo all configuration if I change, or can I upgrade to stable version from where I am?

My W/O now is to have a "Off" swtich mapped to day of week... so I have 7 of them....

That looks fine, I’m afraid that I can’t see why ‘On’ would work but not ‘Off’. Unless it’s related to using the beta but as I said before I have no experience of that.

What I have used when I want something to trigger at a time based on another event (ie: turn the heating program to low at 08:00 if my wife has gone to work but wait till 10:00 if she is at home that day). Is to use a script to check the time and change the heating program based on whether her phone is connected to our wireless network. You can make some quite flexible timers this way.
