# Example configuration.yaml entry for Rova waste collection reminder
automation:
  - id: rova-garbage-bio-reminder
    alias: 'Send Rova Bio waste collection reminder'
    hide_entity: true
    trigger:
      - platform: time
        at: '19:00:00'
    condition:
      - condition: template
        value_template: "{% if (as_timestamp(states('sensor.rova_garbage_gft')) - as_timestamp(now())) < 43200 %}true{% endif %}"
      - condition: template
        value_template: "{% if (as_timestamp(states('sensor.rova_garbage_gft')) - as_timestamp(now())) > 0 %}true{% endif %}"
    action:
      - service: NOTIFICATION_SERVICE
        data:
          message: 'Reminder: put out biowaste bin'
