Support UI7 A simple plugin that use's MCV internal luup.is_night to toggle a virtual Switch to indicate day time or night time. You can provide an offset from sunrise and sunset so that you can consider day as 20 minutes before sunrise and 20 minutes after sunset if you like. This can be used to trigger scenes, or in Plugins like Program Logic Event Generator and Program Logic Timer Switch. Since this is a also a switch ... and you can change it ... you can force or test all of your automation logic in Day and Night modes. Make sure you setup the Location and TimeZone settings for your Vera. For details see: .

Thanks for this plugin, I like the look with the day and night icons and really appreciate the offset option. It is very straight forward in use.

I hope a future release will display the calculated time (based on the given offset values) on which the day starts and the night begins (for the next scheduled event). This would make it easier to test it and tune the needed offset.
