    Re-checking status of a device..

    Hello all,

    occasionally a device status change is not reccognized. Is there a way to just check the status of a device so that it could be corrected with another event.

    I guess the best example is to have a light that is suppose to turn OFF after you leave for work however when you come home the light is still ON. But when I check homeseer the satus is OFF

    TB,
    Is the light in question a 2way switch or module? If not there really is no way to poll a non 2 way device. You could always send an off 30 minutes after you leave to turn off all of the one way devices.

        Where you need to be sure that something has switched correctly, when you set up the event you can put two or more ONs or OFFs, with a few seconds delay between them.

        One other option is to put a motion sensor aimed at the light, with its dusk/dawn sensor switched on, and the sensor will tell HS when its light. Makes the place look a bit cluttered though.

          tb,
          Since it's a 2 way just set up an event to poll the switch every X number of minutes.

          <pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">
          dim status

          hs.PollDevice "A1"

          status = hs.DeviceStatus("A1")

          if status = 2 then
          msgbox "The device is ON"
          elseif status = 3 then
          msgbox "The device is OFF"
          end if

          </pre>
