The two macro scenario for handling sunset to sunrise is confirmed to work on the beta image as well as earlier images. One macro covered Sunset+6 hours, the second macro covered Sunrise-8 hours. The first macro triggered for its 6 hour window, before and after midnight. The second macro triggered for its 8 hour window, before and after midnight. The hours of overlap between the two macros allow for the normal shifting of sunset and sunrise times as the season changes.
A beta image follow on to 1.54.2 has additional macro options for handling sunrise/sunset. These new macro options eliminate the need for two macros to cover the sunset to sunrise and sunrise to sunset time periods. A single macro with the “between sunset and sunrise” option provided the same trigger action as the two macro approach described above.
