  • Newbie to Homeseer AND MyQ (sighhh)

    Brand new at homeseer but managing to install devices and come up with some simple events re lighting. So I took the dive on MYQ (I've got two MYQ enabled garages) and it seems to have installed properly, but I cant seem to figure out how to do anything with it. Can you help me with this event: If garage is open more than 30 minutes, close it.

    Thanks for the start!

    WELCOME TO HOMESEER!

    Ok, without further ado, you will have numerous questions along the line so the best place to start is here : https://forums.homeseer.com/forum/ho...3-event-clinic
    Look at the first two links on that forum. Am sure you will find yourself compelled to learn. And should you need more help just ask!

      Thanks for pointing me. So I constructed an event for MyQ. The trigger is the garage door open for one minute. The action is close the door. It did not work. I am able to close the door by opening the door and RUNNING without the trigger. My liftmaster app is operating correctly. But the trigger of "time" is not triggering the action. Any suggestions?

        I love when the question is actually the answer.

        You have a MyQ device

        The Trigger is when the door has been open for 30 minutes. When that happens the Action tells the door to close. Because the trigger will be true once a second until the door is no longer Open, put a "Cannot Re-Run For: 1 minute to keep the Event from firing while the door is in transition

          Post a screenshot of your Event. I use the same Event and it works well.

            Thank you! When I duplicated your event, the MYQ succeeded. I can't yet figure out how to post a screenshot (duh!) but what I had as a trigger was: "if the garage changes to open" for 2 minutes", and that did not work. I'm surprised at how little changes in the verbiage can make a great deal of difference...

              A picture tells a thousand words! To print screen, hit the screen print button on the keyboard once then open up paint on your PC the hold CTL + V to paste and then edit the image attache to your messages as rprade did above

                It seems to me that the event I constructed (with your help!) is working as I expected. However, I notice an error in red on the log. Does anybody know what this means? Click image for larger version

                    Since I posted this morning that the MYQ PLUGIN seemed to be running properly, it went on a "rampage", opening and closing the garage door without rhyme or reason. I do agree that the error looks similar to the one Eman notes. I had to delete the event to get this runaway to stop. I would like to try to close and open that plugin but I don't know how! Maybe assistance on that please!

                      First create two events with condition "manually" (ON/OFF) and see if they work OK. Then go here : https://forums.homeseer.com/forum/se...19#post1293419 It looks like you didn't set the last part of the EVENT not to run at for 1min

                      rprade also said you attach screen shots.

                        Ouch, I did not set that last part of the event. Now I have done so and I am trying to include a screen shot:
