  • Event triggered manually, cannot re run for x minutes

    I have an event, which triggerd manually. I have ticked the option not to re run for 5 minutes. I am going to use a script to trigger the event. What happens if I trigger the event within these 5 minutes ? I do not want it to run if its within the 5 minutes, but not sure if thats going to be evaluated if the event is triggered by a script

        If I trigger an event via a script, for example

        hs.TriggerEvent("AC close bedroom windows")

        can I specify run only if event conditions are true ?

        Also, if I trigger a mannually triggered event with an And if condition from a script, will that only run if the And if condition is met ?

          This is not the case for a manually triggered event that's called from another event. The cannot re-run for is not respected. I filed a bug report on this a little over a year ago. I'm sure nobody at HST cares. I'm not sure if it's the same for a script though.

            Hmm. It worked when I first tested it several years ago. I did confirm that it is respected when the event is manually run from the events page before posting above.

            Just to confirm what you are reporting, I set up these two Events. Test 2 cannot be rerun for 1 minute.

            I manually triggered test 1 at 5:41:54 and test 2 ran. I ran test 1 a second time within 5 seconds at 5:42:04 and test 2 did not run. These log entries are in reverse chronological order, but they confirm that test 2 only ran once, the first time event 1 was run. After a couple of minutes at 5:44:21 test 1 would run test 2 test 2 again.

            It appears to be working as I described here. How is it not working for you?

              Odd. I have a situation that occurs every single day where this isn't the case. When I get home as determined by my phone connecting to the wi-fry network a manually run event is called. Then it is called again when I enter my PIN at the door. Without fail the even runs twice. This happens EVERY SINGLE DAY! The secondary event wakes my PC and fires up the browser and a few other applications. By the time I sit down at the computer there are two instances of all of these applications running. It's a PITA. It wasn't an issue with my older PC as it booted faster so by the time I was entering my PIN at the door it would already be up and running and a condition of the secondary event is that my PC not be running but the newer PC is a little more industrial/commercial and takes a lot longer to boot.

                Maybe it is possible the second event will run again when called from a different event. I didn’t test that. I will do so later today. I’ll set up a third event that calls the second and see what happens.

                    For me the cannot re run for x minutes does not work. Sometimes it seems to stop execution of the event, other times its still running. I am trying to find a pattern, so far I havent. After the event triggered, (I have a cannot re run for 10 minutes), I triggered a manual run. It did not run. I clicked run again, and it triggered. That was within 2 minutes of the event running. Before that I noticed, the event run every 3 minutes, even though cannot run for 10 minutes is selected. The event is triggered by a script command: hs.TriggerEvent("AC close bedroom windows") every 3 minutes

                        Could it be that triggering from scripting function works differently that triggering solely thru event engine?
                        event is triggered by a script command: hs.TriggerEvent("AC close bedroom windows") every 3 minutes

                          I thought of the same thing and you are correct. The scripting call hs.TriggerEvent apparently will run a second event regardless of the "Cannot Re-Run" setting. In the test I outlined above I changed the triggering of the second event to a script and both events run once a minute, even though the second event is set to Cannot Re-Run for 5 minutes. I sent Rich an email letting him know the specifics of this issue.

                            There should be an easy workaround, for the time being at least, I have created another event which runs the event originally triggered by the script. The script does run the event which runs the original event. That way, the event which cannot re run for x minutes is triggered by another event. So that should work...

                              This is fixed in HS3 build 3.0.0.455. Calling hs.TriggerEvent now honors the "cannot re-run for X # minutes" setting.
