  • mixed device status?

    Not sure why but the status of BLbackup is showing on the status line of my kitchen lights? Any idea what happened?

    On the 'Options' tab there is a field for the RefID of the device you want to use for status tracking. Do you have the correct ID entered? Click image for larger version

        Did you create a virtual device that you want to use to track backup status? If you have one, try entering the RefID for that device in the Options field. Or create a new one.

          it's weird, I created a new VD change the RefID in BLBackup, then manually ran the backup, now both devices are having similar updates.

            You could try restarting the plug-in and/or restarting HS. If neither of those fix the problem, you need to ask your question on Bob's (Blade's) site: http://www.bladeplugins.com/

              If a restart doesn’t change the behavior, post a screenshot of both device’s Advanced page and of the BLBackup Directories page.

                So what happen is the device no longer updates, but that status remains there and doesn't go away.

                  Could you be more specific? Which device, the Z-Wave or virtual? Can you post the screenshots I asked for above?

                    You probably need to null the device string of the erroneous device. &hs.SetDeviceString(nnnn, "", True)

                      That is likely and is the reason I wanted to see screenshots. That way we could confirm as we both suspect that BLBackup set the Z-Wave device's string. I suspect that the Z-Wave device might have the code Q1 which likely started the problem.

                      I also wanted to see if he had configured BLBackup properly because of post #5 above.

                      By saying that both devices updated with BLBackup and seeing that both devices were updated 4 seconds apart, I am confused as to how it could affect both devices.

                      While it won't cause any problems, the virtual device is not setup correctly. Per the help[ file:
                      • User can configure a device code for each backup directory to keep track of the status of the backup for the directory. The device values are as follows:
                        • 0 - Fail
                        • 1 - Success
                        • 2 - In Progress

                        To clear it up for everyone... I reported that both devices are updating when I noticed the status on both devices. My last response is after I recognize that both devices weren't update, it's correctly updating the device now. So the original solution does work. However, the old (incorrect) device that has the status did not clear.

                        I'm not sure exactly how or what Uncle Michael solution is done but it sounds like to null the device is to clear it? If that's the case then this is the solution.

                        Here's the new VD I created and it's updating perfectly.

                        Here's the option for BLBackup that's in question, it matches the VD

                        and here's the device that trigger the original post, noticed the Last backup has not updated since I made the change. So changing the Ref ID works. Just need to clear status to make it look normal. It's all cosmetic at this point. Click image for larger version

                          To reset string you can use a script as Mike suggests in the control panel enter &hs.SetDeviceString(nnnn, "", True) replacing nnnn with the RefID of the device or create a manually triggered Event controlling the device with the string you want to clear.

                          Click on the red airplane if it is there, then as it shows in the Event Set Device String to: Clear

                          Run the Event and the string is cleared. Delete the Event.
