Switch On and Off lights depending on sunrise and sunset

Hello, I am new with Jigsaw.

I want to switch on some lights with Sunset and switch off them with Sunrise.I try with program tasks and with scenes but nothing. Probably something goes wrong with my programming.

The Latitude and the Longitude are correct.

Also I attach a foot of this

Can anyone help with this.

Thank you in advance.

Welcome to the bOS community.

Rather than using the time, to set your lights on or off, you need to use the Dawn, Day, Dusk or Night triggers.

You can do a program task with both triggers and then set the values below, or you can do separate program tasks, it's up to you.


Best regards

thank you for your response.

I try to do with this way but nothing again..

also I attach the value of the sun.

Thank you.

Best regards.


When you set the trigger, was it already night?

If so, probably that's why it didn't run the task. The task only runs when the trigger changes value.

You can test it again today, just leave the task enabled and wait for the sunset today.

I have my window blinds closing at night, so I only have the night trigger, but it works perfectly, everyday at a different time depending on the night time.

I have a scene running...

Keep me posted.

Best regards
