  • Why doesn't this work?

    I just can't seem to get events that use this PI to fire. What am I missing? I literally copied the log entry so I know the syntax is correct.

    The event is to fire off after I turn off my alarm system. I tried to do this with EasyTrigger, but found that depending on when/how I turned off the alarm, I was getting different states that wouldn't fire. so I added the BLLogMonitor entries as well as a backup.

    Here's the alarm going off via the HS Log. Below is a snippet of the event. any thoughts GREAT appreciated as I use this to turn off the red LEDs blinking (to indicate alarm ON) on ALL of my HD200 dimmers.

      My guess is that the log entries may have html code embedded in them so won’t match to the text because of that. I use UltraLog and the same situations occur with it. I typically use a smaller section of the text and then use “contains”. Try pasting the text into notepad or something like that and see if there’s any html tags.

        first... THANKS as always for helping.

        great idea about HTML. I do a cut/paste from the log to ensure I get the text exactly right. when I paste into word, the table formatting comes with it, so that might be it. don't actually see any HTML tagging.

        I deleted the value and entered the text in manually... will run tests. when I add manually, I see this immediately in the log. not sure what it is?

          If you enter the text manually it is missing the html tags and therefore may not match then. Use Notepad instead as it will show the html tags whereas Word won’t. Not sure about that error message.

            Looking at this on my laptop, rather than through Tapatalk, it doesn't appear like there are any html tags in those log entries. Try unchecking the "Regular Expression" checkbox as you are entering text, not a regular expression.

              Funny, I tried to uncheck that box, but it just rechecks itself when I go back to the event again. I actually asked about it several days ago but got no response as to why...

                I’d submit a ticket on Blade’s help desk in that case.

                    Adding to the regular expression narrative... the asterisk (*) character has special meaning in regular expression syntax. Since you can't turn that off, you might try "escaping" each asterisk by inserting a backslash (\) before each one, i. e.

                    Code:
                    \*\*\*\*DISARMED\*\*\*\*Hit \* for faults 
                    Its a reach, but can't hurt to try.
