Schedy

Schedy is a highly-configurable, comfortable to use multi-purpose scheduler for Home Assistant that controls different types of actors such as switches and thermostats based on powerful rules while still facilitating manual intervention at any time.

The goal is to provide an easy solution for conventional scheduling (e.g. by time of day and day of week) while leaving advanced users plenty of room for customization with arbitrarily complex rules.

These key features are implemented in Schedy. More are added continuously.

  • Schedules (based on time, days of week/month, month, year and more)
  • Multiple schedules for different purposes, occasions or seasons
  • One schedule can control a group of actors at once
  • Unlimited number of actor groups (Schedy calls them rooms), each having its own schedule
  • Configurable re-scheduling after manual adjustments
  • Optional synchronization of manual changes among all actors in a room
  • Dynamic values based on expressions written in Python, allowing for arbitrarily complex rules that can consider any information available to Home Assistant
  • Event-driven system enables external control by ordinary Home Assistant events
  • Re-sending until actors report a change back (for unreliable networks)
  • Collection of individually configurable statistical parameters regarding Schedy’s operation
  • Configurable logging

The scenarios for which you might need a scheduler are numerous. Here are just some ideas:

  • advanced heating setup based on day, time, presence etc.
  • motion, daylight and time-triggered lights
  • controlling roller shutters based on time, sun and wind conditions
  • morning and good night routines for different weekdays
  • … and much more

This documentation is written for both beginners that want to get started with Schedy and advanced users needing a reference book for implementing complex scenarios.

In order to get started, it is recommended to read the chapter about the concept first and then proceed to the Tutorial.
