MySensors Example - Humidity and Relay with Non-blocking Loop
View mysensors_humidity_relay_nonblocking.ino
* The MySensors Arduino library handles the wireless radio link and protocol
* between your home built sensors/actuators and HA controller of choice.
* The sensors forms a self healing radio network with optional repeaters. Each
* repeater and gateway builds a routing tables in EEPROM which keeps track of the
* network topology allowing messages to be routed to nodes.

View Arduino Sunrise Alarm Clock and Night Light by James Bruce
* Sunrise Alarm Clock and Night Light by James Bruce
* Initial setup requires you to reset the Arduino sometime in the evening.
* Set the hoursUntilSunrise relative to this time.
* eg, if you reset at 10pm, and want the sunrise to start at 6:30am,
* the value should be 8.5 - this will then be automatically changed to minutes for internal clock to function
You can’t perform that action at this time.
