    Why Doesn't this Counter Work?

    I have set up a counter in a simple sprinkler event to give me easy control over the frequency of irrigation. The event looks like this:

    IF Time: 6:00 AM
    AND IF: Sprinkler Program has a value equal to Regular Program Enabled
    AND IF: Sprinkler Interval value has become this or a multiple of this: 3
    THEN: Set Device Sprinkler System Status to Run Regular Program

    However, the event will not trigger the sprinkler when all the conditions are met. However, if I remove the counter condition, it triggers everyday at 6:00 AM. Any idea what's wrong?

    Are you using the device created for the counter in the event, or the counter itself? From what I understand, the devices created by counters and timers are there for display purposes, but can't be used for triggers or conditions.

      Hi Al, I selected the Counter option, not the Device option, in the statement.

        I actually posted the event as I have re-entered it, with the Time statement first; I previously had the Counter statement first. It worked in a test; lets see if it works at the scheduled time.

          That was probably it. If you had the counter first as a trigger, it would have had to change to 3 at exactly 6:00AM. It would be virtually impossible to have both happen at exactly the same time.

            Solved!

            Yep, that was it. Thanks for the help.

              Sprinklers? In winter? Wouldn't have counters or anything.

              Just kidding. Turned off our sprinklers about a month ago.
