    We have a c-bus network and I wanted to turn on specific lighting circuits at certain time of day. For example, external lights between 6pm-11pm. We have external PIR and I have used the Sunset feature, but I wondered how can we turn on lighting circuits without the PIR. Would we need a device that has Logic function such as Wiser or touch panel? What is the most cost effective way of achieving this...Wiser 2 looks like a nice unit but is it necessary for this?

    Thanks in advance!

    Easiest way IMO would be a Wiser, touchscreen, PAC or Homegate but if you are technically minded, the cheapest way would be running C-Gate on a raspberry pi and use the NodeJS program from Anthony Webb. It has awesome functionality once you get it all set up.
