  • Event repeats every second for 1 Min

    I am trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong with this lights out event. It repeats every second for 1 minute when triggered. A similar event that runs during Christmas with the virtual control set to On didn't do this.

    Can you post the other event that doesn't have this issue? I would guess that the event logic is ignoring the :05 second part of the trigger and your good event has the option set to not re-trigger within some period. That would be an easy fix, at the bottom of the event page select the option that says can't retrigger and set it for 2 minutes.

    Alternatively you could add House Family Room Bay Window On as part of the trigger evaluation AND IF. That will force the trigger to fail once it's toggled.

      I select this option for every event that can retrigger until some condition is satisfied. The time to wait can usually be quite short, just a second or two is often enough, but I use longer times for some events to prevent other causes of retriggering as well.

        I agree. I have read posts that indicate this may be a bug in HS3 -- namely, that event processing of a specified time trigger ignores the seconds part if the trigger time is during the first minute after midnight. To test this hypothesis, you might just change the OFF time trigger to 00:01:xx. The workarounds suggested by mterry63 should also work.

          I have not used the re-trigger option yet. I'll try changing the time first, the use the re-trigger if that doesn't work.

          thanks!

              Had the same issue in the past. Had to change it to 12:01.

              please correct this bug for hs3 AND hs4 (if it is still present in hs4)
