  • Everspring ST814-2 Alarm Events in HS2

    How can I create an event in HS2 when the temperature reaches a certain point?

    I have imported the Everspring ST814-2 and can set the polling times, wake time, thresholds etc. I can see the current temp in the log and on the device status page.

    However, I cannot figure out how to create an event triggered on a certain temperature. The default alarm event never gets tripped in HS. The device itself does "beep" when the pre-defined temperature is reached.

    Can someone point me in the right direction?

    I don't use the ST814-2 self-contained alarms/thresholds like you do, but I do use HS2 to trigger on Value readings at certain temperature & humidity ranges. (I tend not to use exact temperatures & humidities, but prefer ranges to avoid missing a trigger). Not sure if this is what you're after, but here are some snippets below:

      Thanks for that! I can definitely use this as a workaround - basically poll the device every hour or so and event if the value is above a threshold.

      Ideally, I want the device to raise the alert when it occurs. Similar to the Alarm plug-ins which create a zone fault when, say, a door is opened.

      Perhaps someone knows how the alarm from the Everspring can be used in HS.

        I should have mentioned, there's no polling needed, (it's not a listening device & won't 'hear' a poll). The ST814-2 will trigger my events immediately that a particular threshold Value is reached. For my inside devices, I was using them for triggering & monitoring dehumidification cycles and it seemed to be real-time enough for my purposes. (The recurring 59 minutes cycle in my events above was just to stop updates getting sent to me every minute).

          I've been trying to get an event to work using the ST814 temp/humidity sensor. I see that you have managed to do this, but I'm not sure how. What I tried was to set an event with a trigger of device value change and tried both the actual temperature (< 78) or the bigger value (< 7800) but neither seem to work. I get the log records:

          Device: Z-Wave Z-Wave Interface Child 7 Temperature Inst 1 value set to 77.5 (7750/F)

          but my event never triggers. Any idea what I'm doing wrong?
          Dan, take a look at the HS2 events above and see if they help. If not, please post the event you're trying to use.
