Can I define different scan intervalls during night?



During night, it is normally not necessary, to scan all sensors each minute. I also got error messages, during backup activities "to much 32-bit-overflow...reduce sampling interval"

is it possible to change that interval during night hours and how? thanks

Dear Rene,

I'm very much afraid there is no option for this. You could, of course consider to pause the sensors at night completely using Schedules. Though this might not be exactly what you are looking for. Another option might be (if it concerns a few important sensors) to create the sensors twice with different scanning intervals, and pause one part during the day, and the other half during the night.

Best Regards.
