  • Time of device - Not OFF


    I have a couple of dimmers that do not report as an "ON" state of they are in a dimmed value. So in essence I can't use the event of if device has been X for this time as the available options do not include a ">1%" or ~=ON

    The only way round it is to create a timer that resets whenever the device does anything which is ok but is there an easier way to do this.

    The event I am trying to make is:
    If the device has a value that is not OFF then after 30 minutes turn it off.

    The EasyTrigger plug-in has an option for device value not in a specified range. Have you considered using it? (IMO it is one of the most valuable plug-ins for HS and once you have it you'll probably find many more places where it's capability is valuable.)

      I have seen that plugin but not tried it so I will give it a go later.

      Thanks for the quick reply

        Easy trigger is brilliant. It has made loads of events now that utilise the plugin and it has been easy to use and setup. Thanks for the tip
