    Use a Scene

    I found I needed this too. My example is turning on a light when a door is unlocked. This light was also frequently turned on/off by the lightswitch itself so HomeSeer would not always know the current state.

    Originally I did add a Poll Device State followed by a 2 second wait to turn the light on but this seemed kinda clunky.

    So the thought occurred to me to create is own Scene with the single light at 100%. Voila! You just change the event to activate this scene each time and it works regardless of the state HS thinks the switch it in.

    For those devices, why don't you use an event that would:

    - send a command
    - poll the device to make sure its status is synchronized
    - send the same command again

    you may need to add some "Wait" actions between the 3 actions

    I could add a setting to force the plugin to send the action no matter what it thinks the status is, but this could add a lot of UPB traffic if actions are not wisely managed.

    Is it with some specific devices you have problem with?
    Did you try to use the poll action to re-sync the status?

    Spud-

    Occasionally a device fails to act on the instructions in a link and the status table or however the program keeps track of devices and their state is out of sync.

    Is it possible to force a device to take an action despite its status in the table?
Working...
