  • BLShutdown: also kill HS3Sentry.exe?

    I love BLShutdown that it does an orderly shutdown of HS (saving device values and last change status, etc.). I use this when Windows is updated and needs to reboot. Feature Request: Please have it also kill HS3Sentry.exe so HS does not restart before the PC is rebooted with the Windows update.

    As an option, you could do it in the shutdown script. That way it also kills it when you manually shut down HS. This is what I have as my shutdown script:

    Code:
    Imports System.Diagnostics
    
    ' Add commands to this script, but since the
    ' system is shutting down, they must complete quickly.
    '
    Sub Main(Parm As Object)
    
        hs.WriteLog("Shutdown", "HS-Shutdown.vb script is now running")
        hs.TriggerEvent("HomeSeer Shutdown")
        Process.GetProcessesByName("HS3Sentry")(0).Kill()
    
        hs.WriteLog("Shutdown", "HS-Shutdown.vb script commands have been completed")
    
    End Sub
    HS 3.0.0.548: 1990 Devices 1172 Events
    Z-Wave 3.0.1.262: 126 Nodes on one Z-Net

        I'd like to know why doesn't HomeSeer do it anymore?

          Try out 1.0.5 in the beta section and let me know
          I added a new option to terminate HS sentry on shutdown

            Sorry I missed your reply until now. I don't see BLShutdown on http://www.bladeplugins.com/Downloads.asp or the HS downloader at all.

              It is in the HS3 updater under the Utilities section
