Receiving date/time from sensor
I have a sensor receiving the DCF77 time signal from Germany. It is used at a remote site without Internet access.
I could just transfer the date/time as custom values, but perhaps date/time could be relevant as a future sensor type/value? Other relevant information:
- Time source or general reliability/precision
- Current status/precision (time OK? OK but needs external sync? Unknown?)
- UTC or time zone?
- Daylight saving time?
@lassenie - most of the time your controller will be connected and can recieve time all the time thourgh your internet or am I missing something?
Actually I would love to see a new sensor type for setting an alarm time.
@hek Great!!! Can't wait to experiment with this one!
This will be good!
Will it be only time? Could the date information be additional?
