    Trying to understand I put the string

    exeX10:A14,On

    in the subject line of an email and sent it to myself.

    HS received the email says so in the HS log... but device A14 stayed off.

    I do not have any events defined for this event.

    Is this how yours works ?

    Thanks in advance
    Richard

    You left the device command off. Its exeX10:A14,On

    This turns on device A14 which is a lamp in my case. It is not an event.

    The above X10 command doesn't need an event. It's simply an X10 command.

    HS reads every email without an event setup ?

    How is yours setup to do this ?

    Thanks

    I just tried the above string and it works just fine. The only problem is I believe it works no matter who sends the email. Is this true?

    I think there is another level possible here.

    I understand the "HS email recieved" triggers event.(see below)

    I was looking for an email received from a specific address and the subject line or body has command in it that triggers event

    i.e.
    "exeX10:A14,On
    in the subject field"

    or any other string ... or event ...? that is able to trigger an event. Is this supported ?

    Thanks.



    From Help Section:
    In the trigger dialog, under type, select EMAIL reception. Enter the address of the person you wish to check for. This would be the return address. For example, if you would like a light to go on whenever your wife sends you mail from work and her email address at work is "karen@homeseer.com", enter "karen@homeseer.com". Only email from her will trigger the event. If you want the event to trigger whenever you get ANY email, check the box labeled all addresses.

    I am not sure that I understand your question.....but here is some reading material on setting up HS to handle triggers by email

    http://www.homeseer.com/products/hom...p/HomeSeer.htm

    look at sections

    Do I understand this correctly ?

    what do I do (configure) to have HS respond to commands in an email ? Many commands ?

    ...and I will be able to send a variety of commands and execute events via email ?

    I have missed this feature.

    We are not talking about the email trigger to a single event type setup.

    Please fill me in on how I can have HS to this.

    Thanks
