Smart Macros if (Nighttime) not working
« on: February 22, 2005, 02:17:48 PM »

front porch light that will come on when
motion is detected but only at night.  So I
set up a macro that triggers anytime motion
is detected.  That worked daytime or
nighttime, however once I add a conditional
if nighttime to the macro the light still
comes on during the day
