Setup for application [ Day&Night ]

 

                   

Menu [  Day&Night ]

The Day & Night application detect the ambient lighting changes to detect dawn and dusk transition. You can define the detection period, for example from 6:00 to 9:00 for the dawn, and from 17:00 to 21:00 for the dusk, to accomodate seasonal and daily variations.

A few conditions are necessary to make reliable detection:

* Dawn detection: The detection level must be higher than the ambiant lighting during the night. Avoid direct lights (night-lighting) that may avoid proper detection of the sunrise.

* Dusk detection: The detection level must be lower than the daylights in the afternoon such that the sunset transition can be detected properly.

If the ambient lighting condition does not allow proper detection of the dawn/ dusk, then the time of the previous day's detection is used to simulate transition for the day.

If more than one room-managers are installed in the same house, the one that detect the first transition will inform other room-managers to synchronize the detection.
