New native time conditions: sunset and sunrise in Apilio

Hi everyone!

We recently launched our first native time conditions and, as promised, we are continue to expand them so you can make a smarter use of Apilio :slight_smile:

Sunset and sunrise in timeframes

:sun_with_face: :first_quarter_moon_with_face: Finally! Sunset and sunrise can be setup directly in Apilio, saving you setup time and making everything just work better together.

You are now able to set up things like:

  • Between Sunset and 11PM
  • Between 4AM and Sunrise

You’ll be able to set a preferred location in your profile. This will only be used to obtain your local sunrise and sunset times.

What’s next

Remember that these conditions are not triggering…for now :sunglasses: So you’ll need an external trigger to check your logic at a specific time.

We continue to work on our native time and date conditions and we have an exciting summer ahead! Watch this space for the next release.

Great, the only day I don’t check the forums and this appears, great news thanks. Motion sensors as triggers then :wink:


Can I make a suggestion. Can you show the state of the condition is false or true. For example is 2215 and the time condition says 0900-2200. So that would have a status false


Where would you like to see that? On the list view of all timing conditions or somewhere else?


@pebneter I would like it here

Purely for a quick checking case something isn’t firing when it should be


Thanks for the feedback!
We are working like mad on new (epic? :shushing_face: ) features but I hope we’ll have time to work on the details afterwards.


Any beta testing needed :wink:


Not yet, but we might send invitations if we see a good case :slight_smile:

I second this, would be nice to see the current condition (just like we can see the current status of a variable)
