Need help with Macro
« on: September 26, 2009, 04:44:22 PM »

Got a lot of stuff done today. Feeling good about X10. Need a little help with a macro(s).

I have a door that I want to have chime during the day and turn lights on and chime at night. It is covered using a Motion sensor that is currently working properly with the chime only. Do I need to create a new macro for the night setting or just add to the current macro? If I need to add to the current macro I need some help.

It seems if I create a second night macro it will clash with the daytime macro. Any advice will be appreciated.

Sorry AccurateOne.... from time-to-time... a post just slips by.

You could use the dusk/dawn sensor feature of your motion sensor to create a "conditional macro" with the condition being the dusk/dawn for turning on the lights. As far as the chime... just making it the same address as the [macros] trigger (which should also be the motion sensor) should work.
