Sunset offset

I like to start a flow X minutes before sunset. The sunset flowcard only allows X minutes after sunset.
I tried it with -X minutes but this did not work.
Anyone a solution for this?

Do you understand it this way?

Do you probably mix up sunrise and sunset?
This is the build-in flow-card The sun sets in 10 minutes. So the flow is triggered/started 10 minutes before sunset:


So this should be exactly what you need, or do I misunderstand you?

Since when is it possible to select or enter negative times in the sunrise and sunset cards?
I have only the possibility to select the predefined times in a drop-down field. Negative times are not included.

Since Homey cloud :hugs:

So only with Homey Cloud?
With my HP19 I’m not able to insert my own values, neither with normal flows nor with advanced flows. Only the drop-down field with the predefined values is available for me.

Same here with pro 2019.
Don’t know what’s possible with pro 2023 sun event cards…
Anyone here with a pro 2023?

Just tested it. With the normal flows
HP19 has a pull down menu with minutes. Like, 10, 15, 20 etc.
HP23 has a free field to add the time, he accepts no negative times. So -10 can not be saved.

Not tested with advanced flows.

What I miss is a And-card for ‘After xx min before sunset’.
There is only And… After sunset.


It’s very basic…

You’ll need the Sun Events app, that one is very versatile

Thanks, I’ve been thinking about that one for a while. I’m going for it now.
Just thinking this kind of basic feature should really be standard.

Yes, I think I interpreted it the wrong way. Thx.
I will try tonight.


The sun event cards do it the other way around.
That feels not logic to me so I use the Date & Time cards.
On a HP2023.

Failed last night because the wife removed the test lamp.
So tonight another try.

I always use notification cards (Timeline/Simple Log) as well, especially while testing. This way you see the result, even if the device is removed, or broken.

So I mixed up sunrise and sunset. It works now.
