New year, new HomeNET release! We are really pleased to announce that the new HomeNET 3.3 is available for download! This new version fixes several important bugs affecting HomeNET 3.2.x and introduces a really exciting feature.
HomeNET 3.3 provides the ability to schedule scenes. Using a practical yet powerful calendar, user can decide to plan the execution of scenes. For example, if you have a scene that turns ON or OFF the heating system, you can decide to turn ON/OFF the scene on a time basis using the calendar. When a scene is added to the calendar it is handled as an “event”. There are two types of event: single and recurring events. A single event is an event that happens only once; a recurring event is a scene that is executed one day/week/month for one week/month/year.
Since a rule can be activated and deactivated using scene, user can schedule the execution of rules too. This dramatically simplifies rules, as there is no longer need to use the TIME BETWEEN function in rules condition.
A pretty way to show rules
Second, rules are now lexicographically ordered by their name.
