    Trigger event every hour at the top of the hour

    I can't fathom the difference between the "from the top of the hour every.." trigger and the "once per hour from the top of the hour every.." trigger.

    As usual, the help file offers nothing, and neither does the trigger text once configured.

    Any advice on how to get an event to trigger every hour, at the top of the hour please?

    There are three recurring triggers:



    The first starts when HomeSeer does and triggers at an interval determined by the recurring trigger time setting. If you set it for 10 minutes, it will trigger every 10 minutes from the random start time as long as HomeSeer is running. If HomeSeer starts at 10:07, it will trigger at 10:17, 10:27, 10:37, etc.

    The second one is the same as the first but it starts at the top of the hour and repeats at the selected interval. It restarts at the top of every hour and then triggers at the set interval. If it is set for 6 minutes it will trigger at 10:06, 10:12, 10:18, etc.

    The third will Trigger only once per hour, from the top of the hour at the selected interval. If you set it for 6 minutes it will trigger at 6:06, 7:06, 8:06, etc.

    The recurring triggers that use the top of the hour as a starting point, ignore hours in the interval settings, you can only set minutes and seconds.

    An event that triggers at the top of the hour, every hour is "This event will automatically trigger from the top of the hour every..." 0 hours, 0 minutes and 0 seconds.

          If you think it is counter-intuitive can you give a explanation of how you would do it to help? Is what Randy posted not just what it says in the list?

            Counterintuitive was not the good word. Hours and and days should be removed for the last two triggers.

            sorry for the confusion .

              OK, that makes more sense. I didn't know what part you were talking about.

                Days are not offered. While using standardized language for all three is a little clumsy, using hours also works for the last 2. Try it yourself When you use hours from the picker, the last two Triggers will behave identically. I’m not sure I would be inclined to choose once per hour every 4 hours, but if you choose it, HS will make it work.
