    This device has been/for at least... with a dimmable device

    I have three high powered outdoor infrared heaters in an veranda. They are connected to a Lutron HomeWorks QS system using a special controller that accepts dimming inputs. So I can set a heater to 50% power, etc. Now there could be a possibility that someone leaves one on by accident. I want to be notified if the heater is left on for more than 1 hour.

    So I setup an event to run trigger Every 30 minutes AND this device has been/for at least and set it for On and 1 hour. Problem is it only works if I run the device at 100%. Originally I thought ON meant any level above 0%, but it seems to mean 100% only.

    Aside from creating and setting a virtual device when a heater is turned on at 1% or above, is there a way to have this trigger at 1% or greater directly without all those extra events?

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    EDIT: Apologies, I now see there is an events specific board. Seems I can't delete this and post there.

    in the EasyTrigger plugin there are some triggers and conditions that let you use ranges instead of a single value

    This device has been in range [1:100] for at least X minutes

      Have you tried the condition that the device is not off?

        Unfortunately ‘Not Equal to Off” cannot be used to trigger in a “For at least” action. An Easy Trigger range Trigger/Condition is a solution that will work.

          Wow. Didn't even consider that. Thanks so much! Will try it today.

          UPDATE: Worked perfectly. Also simplified a lot of my other events, purchased a license, well worth it!
