Can I have a case where level sensor is turned on at certain time? That is the "topup" pump is activated when the level sensor turn on the plug but at a certain time of the day only.

Hope you guys got what i meant
Thanks ;)

Yes that can be done.
Just set a timer to turn OFF the plug between the hours of A & B
A&B of course being the period you don't want the pump ON.
Do Not set a timer too turn the plug ON, Just Off only.

Then set your level program to turn On and Off the topup system.

Sorry, but how do you set the plug to be OFFH I thought its normally OFF until you set the timer of the power unit, then it becomes ON?

Plugs have 3 states

On
Floating or Unset
Off

If not set by something a Plug can be controlled by something else.

Now that I rethink this the hierarchical nature of the AQ system says that Level sensors have priority over timers, so my orginal suggestion will not work. When I go home I will take another look at this and let you know.
