    TV "online" triggering on HS startup


    I have an event that checks for TV online/off to control a hidden TV lift. It works pretty well with an 8 second poll.

    One thing I am noticing though is every time HS gets restarted my TV lift event fires for some reason. Any ideas on this?


    Can you remove the time from your event? Is the power outlet Zwave or other?
    And I believe you can just do TV on then TV lift on with a manually triggered event. And call it from within another event.

      Change your event trigger to "A device changes and becomes".

      I set the device value no matter what on each poll. With the way you have it set, it will trigger each time I set it. This is why you need to look for it to not only be set, but also change to that value (Change meaning it was something else and is now the value"

      This will solve your issue.


        Just got around to making this change but the "tv lift" event is still firing every time Homeseer starts (even though the TV remains off). It seems like the value of the TV is getting set to "online" briefly during HS Startup somehow?

          sorry I'm just now seeing this. I'm not getting email updates for some reason from this forum. I'll see if I can reproduce and report back. If I can reproduce, I can fix it.
