I have found that NO time conditionals will work in macros that I have created in "Onalert".  Sorry..........

david3336: What you will have to do is create 2 macros, the first one is triggered by your security motion sensor. When you create that macro you will see at the bottom of the macro screen that it says "Macro must be run from the PC" Have this first macro turn on a dummy appliance module set to an unused House/Unit code. Now create a second macro with the same House/Unit code as the dummy appliance module you set up in the first macro. Setup your time conditions also in this second macro. At the bottom of the macro window you will see the option to select "Store in Interface" or "Run From PC" Be sure to check the "Store in Interface" as your selection. Have this second macro control the lights at the times you want.

Most of the Conditions have to be saved and run from the Interface to make them work so any macro that doesn't give you the option to "save to interface " will require more then 1 macro to use the conditionals.
