  • Alert on old data, device not checking in

    How can I have HS3 trigger an event if a device value has not changed in a period of time?

    I.e. I have a device that sends a status update every hour... but I want to know if HS3 hasn't seen an event for over X hours from that device.

    Thanks,
    Marc

    I can think of two ways to do it, but no one-step way.

    - You could start a timer every time the device updates and then trigger an alert if the timer exceeds a limit.
    - Or, you could use a short script that you run with a recurring trigger. The script would check the device time of the device and trigger an alert if the value exceeds a limit.

        I actually use the timer method, but I think you will find that learning to write scripts will be a valuable skill.

        The example below alerts me with a text message once an hour if my weather station fails to report for over 15 minutes.
