    When the Omni detects a door being open more than 3 minutes, I want my Zee 2 to send me an e-mail telling me the door is open. So far it works like a charm with one exception -- it sends a continuous string of e-mails instead of just one. I got more than 250 of them once. When I first made the program I simply said "when door not ready for at least 3 minutes then send e-mail." That resulted in a continuous string. So I changed it to "when door not ready for at least 3 minutes then send e-mail, then wait 15 seconds and then cancel event warning door if it is executing. I thought that would stop the program from sending another e-mail but it still sends a continuous string of them.

    How can I get it to send just one e-mail? Thanks.

    Hi, JCCccc, I think your problem has a simple solution. In your event definition, try using the "exactly 3 minutes" option rather than "at least 3 minutes." I just now tried it, and it worked fine for me. Good luck.

      Great idea; thanks. I modified my programming so the program could not re-run again for at least 5 minutes which helped but did not completely solve the problem. I will try your method.
