  • Triggering Events via Google Assistant



    Example: Say an event is designed to perform an action when a certain X10 light is switched on. The event will not trigger when the light is switched on via the Device Management screen or, critically, via Google Assistant.

    If the CM15A sees the proper "On" command on the line, the event triggers. But if the CM15A transmits the "On" command (as it does when responding to Google Assistant or Device Management), the event does not trigger.

    What is the event trigger? Is it of the form "If the X10 command HCUC On is received"? If so, I'd try "If a device changes and becomes on" instead.

      This is normal behavior as the X10 and CM15a plugins only trigger on X10 data when it is received on the power line by the interface (CM11a, Ti103, CM15a, etc.). The plugin does not evaluate triggers for X10 commands it is transmitting onto the power line.

      Versions of HS2 and earlier were X10-centric and HS3 is now device-centric so its a bit of a paradigm shift when moving to HS3. As Uncle Michael stated above, in HS3 it is best to trigger on device changes rather than X10 events.
