  • How can I report which trigger was responsible for triggering an event in an email?

    Sorry all, new to HS, but I've done a lot of searching and I don't see anything in the scripting help file that I can use to reference which "trigger" tripped the event into the email script. Anyway to do this?

    Thanks

    I do this by using a separate event for each "trigger". All the events run the same script, but pass a parameter (strSubject) to the script to indicate what triggered the email (text message, actually, in my case).
    Code:
        Public Sub Main(ByVal strSubject As String)
    
            Dim strFrom As String = "____@gmail.com"
            Dim strTo1 As String = "__________@tmomail.net"
            Dim strMessage As String = "$time $date"
    
            hs.SendEmail(strTo1, strFrom, "", "", strSubject, strMessage, "")
    
        End Sub

      Thanks. Actually, I think I saw you post this previously in my searching, lol. I'd prefer to not have an event for each device in my security system. The software I came from was able to do this, so I'm a bit surprised HomeSeer doesn't have this capability.

        Depending on the features of the plug-in for your security system, there may be a device that reports what you want, but HS does not force a standard, so it can vary by application. You could also include a function in the script to loop through the candidate devices to identify the one that was the trigger. Again, that will depend on how the plug-in is designed.

        If this issue is limited to your security system, I'd recommend posting it there as well. Perhaps the plug-in already has a feature or the author may consider adding something that will facilitate what you are looking to do.

        PS. Welcome to the Homeseer Board.

          Thanks for the replies and suggestions. These are just of Zwave sensors which are triggering the event. I'm running HS3 with a Z-stick on a RPi3. Not sure if what you said applies here or not.

            I do not use z-wave devices, so am not familiar with the details. It sounds like you are using HS as a virtual security system with stand-alone z-wave sensors. I'm pretty sure there are others doing the same. I suggest you ask your question in the z-wave forum: https://forums.homeseer.com/forumdisplay.php?f=624
            It's possible that someone has come up with a solution or at least can provide more specific guidance.
