    Does this event have a single trigger ?

    The log certainly shows it only runs once. The wording on this particular event triggers look more like a condition. I am not sure what the difference is between using the "Had its value set to" and "changes and becomes"

    Your event has a single trigger and a single condition. The triggers should make sense as they are worded correctly. A device can have its value "set" without changing. The trigger "This device had its value set to On" will trigger whenever the devices value is set to On, even if it was already On. "This device changes and becomes On" will only trigger if it is changed to On from a value other than On. The reasoning is for devices like remote controls, where you may press button 1 at morning and press the same button at night. The device's value doesn't change at night, but its value is "set".

    There is some ambiguity in the wording in conditions as it reads differently when picking the condition than when it is collapsed. When it is expanded for picking the condition the bottom three read more like triggers.

    The correct wording is when it is collapsed.

      Thanks again. That looks like it will be very useful. I see how that would be especially useful for keypad events and X-10 RF events.
