Security option on Dusk/Dawn
« on: October 26, 2004, 09:59:44 PM »

I would like the security option available
on Dusk/Dawn timers so that they will turn
on/off +/- up to 30 minutes from dusk/dawn
time.  I believe that this was available in
the old ActiveHome but security can't be
selected in AHP when it is a dusk/dawn
timer.

I noticed this too, but may have found a workaround:

If you're up for editing the .ahx file ( in a text editor ) look for the

<timers>

section

and on the particular timer of interest look for:

UseSecurity="0"

and change it to

UseSecurity="1"

Save the file and download it to the CM15 again.

Even tho' the security check box is not changeable from AHP (grayed out) it will be checked.

This seemed to work for me, mind you it has only been running for one Dusk/Dawn cycle so far without a problem.

Anyone know if this will cause other problems ? My CM15 has a 09 date code, so it is pretty recent.
