Need help with automated lighting

Postby syous » Tue Nov 28, 2006 7:45 pm

I have done a lot of searches and looked at different parts of the Cinemar forums but have not found what I was looking for.

I would like to put in a rule that would turn on lights at sunset and turn them off at sunrise. I looked at MLscheduler and timer but don't think that they could do it.

Can anyone help with ideas/suggestions/directions?

Thanks

Thanks as usual smoothtlk

So that is where I would put in rules. What would you use the scheduler and timer plugins for? Also, I could not get the scheduler to work. Is there something I am missing?

Thanks again
