Change directory to your node red installation and run the following command:

NPM

The times can be a 24 hour time or a suncalc event:

sunrise sunrise (top edge of the sun appears on the horizon)
sunriseEnd sunrise ends (bottom edge of the sun touches the horizon)

{{msg.fieldName}} Access a field of the message (mustache template syntax)
{{flow.fieldName}} Access a field of the flow (mustache template syntax)
{{global.fieldName}} Access a global field (mustache template syntax)

Placeholders with prefix msg, flow or global are replaced by the corresponding field value.

Offsets

The start and end time can have an offset. You can use fields here aswell.

This is specified in minutes:

  • Negative numbers are bringing the time back. E.g. if the time is dusk and offset is -60, the start time will be 60 minutes before dusk.
  • Positive numbers are delaying the time by the specified number of minutes

The offset also supports placeholders:

Placeholder Description
{{msg.fieldName}} Access a field of the message (mustache template syntax)
{{flow.fieldName}} Access a field of the flow (mustache template syntax)
{{global.fieldName}} Access a global field (mustache template syntax)

Geo location

Specify the latitude and longitude of your geo location or use one of the followng placeolders as value:

Placeholder Description
{{msg.fieldName}} Access a field of the message (mustache template syntax)
{{flow.fieldName}} Access a field of the flow (mustache template syntax)
{{global.fieldName}} Access a global field (mustache template syntax)
