Openweather Forecast: Invalid API key


i run in the same Problem… but i think its strange because on the Site “” unter Free there says “5 days/3 hour forecast API” is included.

Maybe i understand this worng but this looks like i have 5 Days and or 3 hour Forecast but when i look in to my Account under “Services” there say:

Threshold: 7,200
Hourly forecast: 5
Daily forecast: 0
Calls 1min: 60

So with “0” Daily forecast that should be the Problem. Damn is there a alternative? I just need Plugin that gives me the forecast for the max Temp of the Day so that can i use this value for closing the windows shutters in the moring if its a hot day.

All about rules and script develpopment
howto make sure rule is only executed when its dark outside

@countjuh said in howto make sure rule is only executed when its dark outside:


Well, you sure you made the new variable in variables? go to variables on the left of your screen. press the wheel in the right upper corner. press make new variable and make the $dark with value 0.

then make the rule. I have tried to make the rule and here it works.
hope this will help you.

$dark variable was already there, but didnt change when its day or night… seems the brackets in the rule are not working (anymore); so removed them and tried again…
