    Success!!!

    I updated HS4, unplugged the HomeTroller, powered back up, deleted all groups and events, created a new group and associated event - and - insert drum roll here - it worked.

    I thank everyone for all their help.

    Grunert - It looks like you’re using/editing Group Conditions. Is that intentional?

    Try creating the Event with standard conditions specific to that Event. Group conditions complicate things.

    based on the log pic, its like hs4 isnt calling the plugin. lets try the following to see if the plugin is taking any action
    1. Enable detailed logging on the plugin Settings page
    2. Retest the event (start it manually via the icon)
    3. Post the HS Log that shows the problem: Goto to the hs tools/log menu, Export the log of the transactions, download it and attach it to your post

    I've restarted and updated HS4 several times - can always do it again.

    I turned lights off this morning manually - didn't see any errors in the log:

    I can control switches manually, but not from events. Trying to start small - turn one light on and off. I added Group Test and think I set it up correctly:

    i saved each step. Didn't happen automatically. Didn't happen when clicking on the running man. Tried again manually - could turn switch on and off.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks

    Back to Events - Groups - Running man to run now and .... nothing, light's still on.

    Either there's a setup option or step I'm missing, I don't understand what to do, or HS4-Insteon plugin won't allow scheduled control.

    Browsing around, I found that there's a Plugins - Manage - MNS Insteon - More brings up a menu of Devices, Groups, Interface, and Settings. Do I need to do anything here to ge up and running.

    I can post a list of the screenshots, but that may be redundant.
    the plugin has nothing to do with Events running, Events are managed and controlled by HS4.

    have you restarted HS4?

    do you see anything in the hs4 when you run the event manually? any errors?

    1. what happens if you manually trigger the event - you can manually start it and see all the devices are doing what you want them to do

    2. if above works, then there's a problem with the trigger. Check the timezone / time in the tools about etc. for some reason my clock was off. I had to use this fix: https://forums.homeseer.com/forum/hs...troller-zee-s2

    well that looks simple enough;

    1. have you tried any other devices in the event action?
    2. can you post pic of the device's status/graphics page? it will look something like this

    Did that. Clicking the walking man on the Event list - lights did not come on. I went back to the Devices list, clicked 'On' and the lights came on. For some reason, the Event isn't getting to the light switch.

    There is nothing required to get events to run -- paste a screen shot of your event -- when you say it "didn't work", you clicked the running-man icon to run the event immediately?

    Decided to get a fresh start - restarted HomeTroller Pi, deleted events, and created a new 'test' event - to turn an Insteon light switch on - didn't work. Hard to understand - I can turn switched on/off via the webpage and app, but the events don't seen to work. Am I missing something to 'activate' them and get events to run?

    if everything else is working, i would just delete the event and start clean
