    Scott,
    Can you explain a bit more about what you have in mind? Are you talking about a system that keeps a record of the changes in a way that allows someone to look back at previous states and see what changed and when? Would it offer any way to capture the reason for a change? Could you look at a timeline and see all the things that changed on a particular day, and in what sequence?
    Hi Mike
    That's exactly what I meant. Whether you would need to click on a 'capture' button first or whether it would collect all changes and dates between restarts is debatable. It's not unknown for me to make changes, not save a backup, make more changes which don't work, then when I do roll back I have lost my original changes. If I had a record in a separate DB of what I have changed and when, it would help. It also means that I could do a screen dump / capture of events and have a record of changes from the dump date.

    It could be an extension of the change log that Tom Kern has - even automatically update that log?

    I wouldn't be able to do this myself, but if a plug-in / script existed I would certainly be interested in buying it.

      There's this asp page that can help in tracking changes: http://board.homeseer.com/showthread.php?t=113128. HS3 version is in the second post.

        Sorry, that was the asp I meant.

          I don't think a plug in could automatically detect and track changes. I believe there would have to be functions already provided by HomeSeer in HS3 for a plug in to be able to do that. There are a few details that could potentially be detected per earlier discussion, but many of the details of content in Events is only accessible by looking at the events web page. I think HomeSeer would have to either develop this capability in the core application, or at least provide new functions allowing all event details to be accessible so a plug in could do it.

              Older versions of the database are great and essential to have, but I am never sure which one to use! It is not clear to me exactly what type of change causes a new database to be created. If there were more information accessible other than date and time, that would be helpful.
