System is being updated location by location. It can't be modified by customer, but it is around 20 minutes currently.

I ask this because I made two simple rules for House ventilation


rule


Now I get the message every 115min , although the situation (state) is the same ????


state


even if the delete message from the rule, I see that the state controls every 115min.

Obviously, the synchronized mode does not work every 20min, since it is now time 8:35

the temperature was last synchronized with the time 5:55

Zipato Team, please check the refresh settings.

we will check it out the maximal interval. However, there is no fixed interval, it depends of number of cities which we are updating in some regular order...

Thanks for all the input, I really appreciate it! The options at hand though are not mind blowing for an easy task like accurate temperature:

1. Set up a separate unit to run a script. It's beyond my comfort zone as a medium skilled user.

2. Accept random update intervals, up to 2h delay, in the weather station.

3. Buy a temperature sensor and put outside the house.


I'll reluctantly go forward with option 3.


Zipato, please develop a good solution to the problem. Basic and updated input data like temp, local time incl. DST, etc etc should be easily available to all users to make the system comprehendable for people with tech interest but no hacking background.


Best Regards,
