Turning on lamps at sunset only when alarm is in away mode.

I want to create a program that will turn on lamps in the house at sunset if I'm not here.  I don't want them to turn on every time the alarm is put in away mode because its a waste of electricity.  I notice that this can be done with a light control, but not a smart plug.  I can get close by creating a program that will turn the lights on if the alarm is set to away mode during certain hours, but I can also just turn them on myself.  What I need is the system to turn the lamps on at sunset (or at least a specific time) if I'm not here.

 

Thanks for any help!

Unfortunately this is not currently possible because AT&T still hasn't added the ability to run programs based on when the system is in a particular state (i.e., armed-away, armed-instant, disarmed, etc.). Hopefully more and more people will complain about this so that the feature finally gets added.
