I wanted to use the wake-up and bedtime timers with the idea that it would be easier to change the hours when needed via an OLED module instead of opening velbuslink and change the hours in the software.
I found this information in the general manual and I know the VMBGPOD isn’t the same as the VMBELO, but wouldn’t it be nice to also be able to change these hours via my VMBELO’s?
Or is there a way to do this that I just haven’t found yet?
As a secondary question… I assumed these hours work exactly the same as any other trigger for program steps like sunrise/sunset. But it looks like it doesn’t do anything when I use a programstep with these bedtime hours.
Why is this? Because for the sunset hours for example, this was not necessary.
Or I must have done something I don’t remember anymore.
I just have to create an “enable alarm 1” once for this to work until the end of time?
But as it’s not possible to change the alarm hours from on the VMBELO’s, it doesn’t help me much at this time.
I’ll try to test this in the near future and hope to get this update soon.
I’ll probably also have to use HomeAssistent pretty soon. More questions to come…
Not sure yet if it’ll be Home Assistant or OpenHab, this will depend on the support of the other hardware I’ll get in the future.
It was always planned to use something to integrate more, but until now not a necessity. This will probably change… to be continued.
