  • Can I differentiate between armed stay and away?

    I just switched to HomeSeer from using the ISY994 and with my DSC alarm on it it knew the difference between armed stay and away. I don't see that when using the Envisalink as a trigger in events though. I have when Partition is Armed as a trigger which works fine as expected, but it doesn't seem to differential between stay and away. The plugin itself seems to as I can arm it as stay or away from HS3, but is there any way trigger wise to differentiate them?

    Reason I ask is because I have programs set to do things based on if we aren't home, and the way I know that is if the alarm is armed in away mode, since stay mode means we are there at night. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    you can use the partition device and "A device changes and becomes" trigger, this way you can create an event like:

    IF "envisalink partition" changes and becomes "Armed away"
