It just does not work with a free version, too little response from the users. Too few conversions for the work to maintain it.
I’m a bit astonished, but it seems to be that way.
As one of my sons complained about the old-fashioned UI (form follows function is not “in” any more), I thought about that and integrated new UI themes, switchable in “Settings > Main Screen” using the “material design” colors and some ideas from it. I hope you agree it’s more modern, while still offering the same convenience.
even if Google offers you the golden apple… there’s always a catch!
The calendars selected for the Calendar automatics (using the”@Sunrise:” commands invented last week) are searched for all-day-items with “vacation” in the item’s text.
If one is found, a notification offers to ignore that entry as irrelevant (by adding “@sunrise:ignore” command to its description) or to suppress alarms in that date range (not surprisingly using “@sunrise:-“).
With the help of calendar entries, you can modify the alarm list. In order to accomplish this, the description field of the calendar items of the next 7 days is examined.
<parameters> is a time difference like ‘-1h 30m’ to add/subtract the start time of the alarm from the calendar event’s start time, or an absolute time like ’08:30′ (attention: 24-hour-format, if you need your sunrise past noon ;)).
Remember to remove the reminder if it would be in the range of the dawn simulation! Otherwise it would be counter-productive…
By adding such an alarm, all alarms from templates of the same day will be automatically disabled.
It is always possible to manually re-enable or disable alarms that are created or modified by the calendar.
Special thanks to a customer for that suggestion!
In short: these bulbs do not get dark enough by far, they can be programmed from about 50% brightness up, not lower.
Conclusion: no way to use that system.
If anybody knows a (commercially available) light system that can be dimmed from 0% to 100% using an android device: please leave a comment or drop me an email!
No need to write much more, is there?
Purpose is to program the Chromecast stick (actually an UFO in the new version) to use the TV as display for ‘Personal Sunrise’. Saying goes some people have a TV in the sleeping room, so that makes perfect sense.
