  • TTS variable for current temp

    Hey Spud...

    I'd like to create an event that when triggers, tells me the time and house temp over sonos. I have everything but the temp part working.

    if time is $$Time, is there an equivalent for temp?

    THanks

    You can use replacement variables to get info from any device. See this page in the help file with all the options and syntax: http://homeseer.com/support/homeseer..._variables.htm

      Thanks Al.

      Sadly, I actually found this page. I guess what I need is a pointer on how to link a global variable with (in this case) the temp variable.

      New to variables :-)

        Is the house temp value not stored in a HS device? You should be able to $$DVR:1234: replacing 1234 with the reference id of the temperature device.

          OK, so that makes total sense! So I plugged it in, and all it says back is the "The temp in the house is $$DVR:383" :-)

          see pic. what did I miss?

            Can you post a screen shot of your event?

              make sure you did not forget the colon at the end

              $$DVR:383:
