Timer Modification?
« on: June 12, 2010, 12:40:57 PM »

 -:) It would be nice to have the AHPro in the modules and macros software to utilize having the option to turn on or Off any module  like a timer every 5 , 10 , 15 ,and 30, minuets and for even day/night?. This could be implemented in the software of AHPro  >!

Sure you can, but why?   The whole idea of X10 is to take the worry of tuning lights and appliances without you flipping switches.  Like lights on at night when you arrive after dark so you don't walk into a dark house.  Why you would want a timer to be "a timer every 5 , 10 , 15 ,and 30, minuets and for even day/night". Makes no sense.

I think the OP is looking for an easy way to set up and send the same HCUC commands at regular intervals and incorporate conditionals like DAY/NIGHT.  I have not used AHP for so long, but thought one could do that(?).
