Is there any way we could store the current date and time to a variable? Both internal homey logic and the better logic app only seem to have boolean, string and number types.
I have the Siemens/Bosch washer but they did not get home automation at all. I would have wanted to ask a google mini “Ok google, how long will the washer still take” so it could answer the time left, but that is not going to happen.
They only have a “A program finished” event, not even a “A program started” event. If they did that and also presented the time that program would run I could do a lot more.
But what I want to do now is write the date/time the program finished to a variable and then, if google asked “When did the washed finish” it would Google TTS back the date and time the last program finished. If it is way in the past we can assume it is still running, if it is a couple of minutes ago it probably finished.
But how to do this? I can’t seem to store the current date/time into the variable. Would be best if it could write it down as text so I could use that variable back in my Google TTS result as a token result.
