1 Macro with Multi-Functions??
« on: March 19, 2009, 07:46:03 AM »

Can 1 macro be set up to run at different times throughout the day?

Example: If I have an exhaust fan that I want to turn on at 6 am run for an hour, then turn off for an hour, then run again for an hour. Then turn back on at 3pm and do the same process. Then repeat at 8pm. Can this be done with 1 Macro so I don't use up a bunch of addresses?


:' Hope I explained this right......

yes!
Although macros have a 4 1/2 hour time constraint you can fire them with timers so they start at different times of the day! ;)

Do you really need a macro for that?  Sounds like it can be done with multiple timers.

Not that I'm aware of.
