#223

thats not an accurate pic even know I pulled it from the program my lights are called front L front M and front R That snap shop shows RGB bulb is that normal? When I go to the piston its shows my bulbs labeled correctly


#224

never mind the time clause if failing on the while. :sigh:

at line 100


#225

um ok not sure what that means I changed that so it ran untill sunrise did I need to do something else? Would it be easier just to have them come on at sunset and off at 08:00


#226

well the isbetween condition is not working.

can you please change the isbetween condition to midnight instead of sunrise and trigger the piston by changing the time happens?

try this condition:

while isBetween($now, $sunset, time(“23:59”)) is true


#227

done and adjusted start time should attempt in a minute


#228

still didnt come on

#229

thanks. have you created the global boolean variable @pauseHLCRaFp and set it to false?


#230

uhhhh is there a dumb face emoji because I have no clue what you just asked me. :thinking:


#231

this is part of the setup.

in piston edit mode check the right hand bar. there you will see a link to add a new global variable.

image

click on that link to create that variable and set the value to false.


#232

Ok I’m kinda following you but what is it I put as the variable. Not this I assume


#233

So like this


#234

Ok so looks like that was the key The lights are on now but there only White and kinda fading in just white?


#235

because none of the date ranges match.


#236

Cool so I change the date to -24 and it kind of works Have three lights set but one turns white when I think its suppose to be green. Goes from gold to white. Should I change the off back to the other way so it stays on till surise?


#237

while the piston is running what is the value of fadecolors?

sure.


#238

Im gonna have to work on this more tommorrow Look like when the piston starts there is one gold one red and one green. the first change happens and one light goes to white another to gold and one red then they just stay that way kinda of fading light to dark but not changing how do I tell you the value of fadecolors while piston is running


#239

#240

hmm … this is one piston i run regularly so i know the color rotate and fade works consistently. so a little surprised.

are you sure there is not something else also running that is setting the color of any of these lights while this piston is running?


#241

yet as far as I know I pretty much just got these for this reason Gonna have to wait till tommorrow I gotta hit the sack or wife is gonna kill me. Thanks for all the help tonight Ill proably bug you more tommorrow Really really love this piston and Im sure will get it working sooner or later
