Hi there, I'm building an alarm clock, and I've come across an annoying problem, I assume it's my fault, but I can't figure out what might be wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Essentially what I'm doing is taking the time from a DS1307, that bit works fine. Next, I'm using two potentiometers to set the alarm time. That bit works fine too. Thirdly, alarm clocks never wake me up, so I'm building a digital sensor into my bed that will prevent the alarm from being turned off if I'm in bed. I can read the value of this sensor no worries.
So here's the problem, I want to set up a statement that will turn the alarm on if a)I'm in bed and b)the actual time is the same as the alarm time.
This is the statement as it stands, but it doesn't work. alarm_off is a digital input, I have tried using both ==1 and ==HIGH, neither work.
if( time_h == alarm_h && time_m == alarm_m && alarm_off == HIGH)
If I use this code the LED comes on, and the message is printed to the terminal:
if( time_h == alarm_h && time_m == alarm_m )
Basically, the second of the two statements works perfectly, but as soon as I add a third condition, it doesn't.
Any ideas? I'm wondering if there's a limit to two conditions or something like that.
