    That is helpful to know. I had forgotten about the wait and that might be exactly what I do need to try to get the motion sensors working correctly.

    An Event does not wait for a Timer or Counter. If there is a Timer or Counter as a Condition, the Event will not run until the Condition is true. The Event is not waiting, it is not being run. Once a Trigger and all Conditions are met, the Event will run. When this happens, the Event will be logged, unless logging is disabled for the Event.

    Unless your event has a “Wait” as an Action, it is finished within milliseconds. HomeSeer does not process Actions sequentially, each action is spun off in its own thread. As a result the log entry of an Event’s initiation is all you will see. As soon as it is launched, it is finished. If your Event has a Wait, it will be in suspension during the wait period. Once the Wait period has elapsed, the remaining Actions are launched immediately.

    Doesn't your log show continually repeating actions when they occur?

    The product was the ISY, by universal-devices. I used to run all insteon but it seemed like the switches and such would just die after a few years so I converted to z wave and homeseer software. For the events I guess it would be nice to see a screen that is showing all the events and which ones are currently running and at which point there run state is at. It's kind of nice because you can have better diagnostic ability to see what stage your event is at or if it is even running. I've made a few mistakes and put in some "true ifs" that caused an event to keep opening up chained processes slowing things down.

    Most events complete in less than a few seconds. Can you say more about what you want to see? Do you have specific events that you want to track?
    As teladog01 noted, you can use the log to review what events have run and when.

    In HS4 menu: Tools > Log

    From Filter: HomeSeer
    Type Filter: Event


    Edit: By the way, what's UDI?

    Is there a way to see active events running? I migrated from UDI and that's something I miss.
Working...
