ACin ignore timer using CCGX Generator auto start/stop example

Note that below functionality requires Color Control GX version v1.30 or newer. See here for update instructions.

Introduction

The CCGX internal relay can be used to start a generator. The relay can also be used to set other things. For example in combination with an assistant and the use of an AUX input it can be used as a timer to ignore ACin on set times to make use of 'off peak tarrifs'. The multi/Quattro does not have a real time clock so the time is not very exact. The ColorControl does have an internal clock. Exact switching can be done.
