    Default Setting time conditions

    Hi All

    Is there a way to set time conditions. I current have setup that when the front door opens cortex emails me. What i want is so that cortex emails me when the door opens only between 9am - 5pm monday to friday. Is this possible ? I've tried searching the help, but cannot figure it out.

    Thanks

    Simon

    A not very elegant way might be as follows.

    Add a legacy relay object.
    Do NOT network enable it.
    Connect it to an On/Off load.
    Do NOT network enable it.
    The on/off load will be use as a flag as to when to send emails.
    Set on/off load to all the time.
    Set on/off load to automatic.
    In Scheduler create an item for weedays only set it to turn ON on/off load at 9am.
    In Scheduler create an item for everyday, set it to turn OFF on/off load at 5pm.
    In email send item make it dependant on on/off load being true.
    Set door on open to trigger email.

    I haven't tried it, but you can set time conditions on macros. So you could set the door to run the macro and then have the email sent from the macro.
