Title: Did the WM100 forget to send a signal?
Post by: VinRin57 on August 22, 2018, 07:59:29 AM
Greetings...

So in our last episode, I finally realized, with a little help from you folks, that Dawn/Dusk is actually Sunrise/Sunset.. Ok..
And I had that set for a while, to control outside lights every day, every week... all selected, all working. 
Next move, a 15 minute offset... a happy medium between dusk and sunset, and dawn and sunrise.. All working.. great I might add.
On when not too dark, off when not too light...

Last night, no 'on' signal sent at all... it's about 8pm, all dark in NJ.  I turned them on manually (well, with the app!), they did go off in the morning on schedule.  History shows no 'on' signal sent.  I checked device settings, all in order, day selected....

Any ideas??
Thank you.

It is possible there is a bug in this release (wouldn't surprise me).Since you have checked the settings and that day was checked to send and History shows no signal sent it does seem like a issue with the WM100.

However there is the possibility you have something generating noise or a signal sucker plugged in though I would think a manual send from the app would also be affected. ::) :'.
Was there anything plugged into the outlet next to the WM100 at the scheduled on time?

Not sure this helps, but there were three instances for me that a signal was not sent:
- I had two devices with the exact "on" time - only one device turned on
- I accidentally chose "once" when configuring
- I forgot to choose all the days of the week when configuring

Other than that, no misses for me.

I gotta admit, this is one thing I love and still use the CM15a for. I have 8 devices set for the exact on time and they all turn in in order of device number perfectly each day, including dimming prior to moving on to the next device on the list....Willie 100 misses in this regard IMHO

Greetings all.. it's 8pm in Central NJ!  Please disregard everything and everything!  Why? Becuzz! Sunset plus 15 puts it at 7:59. As I type, they went on at 7:59... dusk is 8:13... BUT it looks darker than usual???????????

As they say, user error..!

So, looks like 'lights on' at sunset makes sense... timer adjusted for future... sunset on, no offset...

Lights off - seems to make sense at Dawn less 15... we will see...

Sorry again..

Yea, -15 should put you about halfway between dawn and sunrise.  "ish"
