A simple node indicating if it's day or night.

A simple node indicating if it's day or night.

The node sets: msg.payload to boolean true or false payloads.

It also sets a global isNight accessible in all flows.

It sends a true payload if it is dark and false if not dark.

The second output emits only on the transition between night to day or day to night.

Here are some examples:
