I have set up an alarm clock action and would like to take it further.

How would I make it turn off when motion is detected in the bathroom? (M1)

Also I've got my alarm action to speak the weather, it is easy enough to make it speak the time?

I added to the wiki for this response.

http://www.thevirtualcrib.com/wiki/index.php?title=Alarm_Clocks_/_Time_Based_Routines

Use HH:MM to cite the time in TTS. or in 0090 and later, there is a new variable for time in am/pm format in which you would call [VARIABLE=TIME AMPM] etc.

Yes, yes, yes, I know this is obfuscated.

Time based conditions also have an event section below where you enter the time ranges, so you just add:

NOT Some Motion ON within 360 seconds.

I use the bathroom motion detector to silence my alarm.

I just don't get up. Twisted Evil

Actually vCrib just does my curtains and lights in the morning, I have regular alarm clocks for noisy things. Since I use the lights while I'm getting ready, I just set them to go off at a set time after I am gone. The dogs stay in the bedroom all day so I turn off the lights ON with motion for the time range when we expect to be at work. There is more write up about time ranges in the wiki and forum articles about sunrise sunset scenarios.

Thanks for the lengthy wiki entry, i'll check it out in a few.

As for all wiki entries you should put and date and the version it applies to. ( I administer a wiki at work)

So you have the stuff that applies to current stable under 'Latest' and as new versions come out you move 'Latest' to the actual version number: 0.0.8.0

I would hate for a new guy to run across this entry 2 years from now and soak it all up and it not even apply anymore.
