  • "Simple" Event building Question

    Is there any difference in the timing or anything else when you have multiple devices listed in a single event entry vs. adding a step for each one. I have Schlage locks that are occasionally a little flakey and don't always lock / unlock when sent commands. The worst one is only about 5 feet from the transmitter so I don't think it's a signal/routing problem. I doubt this has anything to do with the flow of rules, but wondering if pacing of commands or anything changes between the two approaches? Does waiting between lines ever help? I don't see that it does. I'm guessing I just need to have the event pause and then issue the same commands'd be nice to know all of them locked without looking ALWAYS...even at a status text etc.

    I tend to use individual Then statements as opposed to stacking a bunch of action commands under a single Then.
    The only time I'd use Wait commands is in a string of IR commands, where a device can't receive infrared as fast as HS can send them. A 400 millisecond wait was needed.

    But for a string of Zwave commands going out too close together, I don't see that happening. At one site that I work with we turn 100 monitors on and off every day without skipping an action.

      Thanks! I really do think it's a lock issue not HS3
