    That's been one of my concerns. About how long are they lasting for you?

    It's Everspring.
    Pretty satisfied. Just keep the batteries going.

    When the water level drops off the probe, a timer starts. When water touches the probe, the timer stops. It accumulates time until midnight.
    At midnight if the timer has exceeded 12 hours of low water level, HS tells Rachio to set zone 6 for 10 minutes. If not no water is added.

    Zone 6 is plumbed directly into my filtration system, so water is added through the return ports.
    Kinda like a silent butler, except the valve makes a noise when the water turns off at 12:10 AM.
    Can I ask what water sensor you're using? Satisfied with it? Thx.

    So your answer is yes. It'll work.
    thanks for the reply.

    Just curious, do you set zone 6 on a time limit or until the sensor is satisfied?

    My cabana has a bathroom that is being fed from a sprinkler zone and I have a Rachio. Rather than leaving that sprinkler zone on all the time I was hoping on creating an event using this plugin:

    If bathroom door is open (Z wave sensor) and Zone X on Rachio is not on, turn on for 1 hour

    Would I be able to do this?

    Disregard - I found an active thread....
    I am not sure why it's no longer showing up in the HomeSeer updater. I sent an email to HomeSeer to ask what happened.

    I am sorry to hear you are still experiencing issues with my plug-in. I have been unable to duplicate this issue on my HomeTroller 6S. The technologies used within this plug-in are identical to my other 18 plug-ins. I am not doing anything different in this plug-in that would potentially cause the plug-in to crash. I am not referencing any DLL files in my plug-in either. It's 100% .Net code. I am not familiar with the ntdll.dll file or why/how it would cause a module fault.

    Can you please:
    1. Can you review your HomeSeer logs to see if there was anything written to the logs prior to the crash? If yes, can you post it here so I can review it?
    2. Check your Windows 7 system error log for anything that occurred prior to the crash
    3. Tell me if you are using any HomeSeer events to control the plug-in prior to the program crash?


    I'll also do some additional testing like pull the network cable from my system and let it run to see if it's being caused by losing it's IP address or DNS.

    I have been running the plug-in on my Windows 10 system since it was released and have not experienced any issues. I was also running it on my HomeTroller S6 for 30 days and did not experience a crash. How often are you seeing a crash on your Windows 7 HomeTroller S6 system?

    Have you seen this? I don't know if it applies...
