Currently we have Input Datetime, which is great for using it as automation trigger. For example in my home setup I have two Datetime inputs for opening covers/shutters in the morning - one for weekdays and another for weekends. And here comes the problem - what if I want to have a dedicated time for each day of the week. I need seven Datetime inputs and either a pretty complex automation trigger logic or seven different automation rules.
An “Input Schedule” (input_schedule) integration will solve this problem and could be used in lots of useful places, e.g. the most common scenario - weekly room thermostat schedules.
It’s really surprising such solution doesn’t exist right now. I see there were some 3rd party attempts, but nothing solid, mature or actually working.
Thanks for the quick reply. Yes, I went thru these discussions and projects before I wrote this.
Unfortunately both projects you mention do not solve the problem. Simple Scheduler works with just ON/OFF values, so basically switches and lights. I’m out of luck with my covers/shutters automation. And it’s in PHP… Scheddy has no GUI whatsoever, which is the whole point here.
