      Hi. (Sorry for the delay, I was running the Baja 1000 and just got back to civilization).

      Yes, you can control all items in a tag one of two ways. You can use the virtual device or you can use the actions added by Tags. In either case, Tags will try to do the 'right thing' If you send a 'Blue Light On' command to 20 devices, 1/2 of which support 'Blue Light On' then only those devices will get send the command (since it is meaningless to the other devices). If you set the device to a value (say '50') then all devices will get set to that.

      You can use the actions for almost all control issues, the virtual device gives you the ability to take action on the highest, lowest, or average value of all the devices in a Tag (I use it to take an average of my temp sensors to make heating/cooling decisions in an area).

        When creating the virtual device manually how does it link up? Do I use a specific name? Type? Address?

          Hi, simply check the 'virtual device' option in the configuration panel and it will create the virtual device (or remove it if you turn off the check mark). I didn't build a way to support creating them manually, I imagine I could. Do you have a use case?

            Post #1 said to create manually but I didn't know how. Now I understand it's automatic.

              I just tried and can not find the created virtual device in my list of devices. What is the default room and category of the created device?

                I think I found the problem

                  That error would suggest the plugin is not running. Can you disable/enable it on the plugin page and see if it repeats?

                    I think the plugin crashed and then restarted. I have tried several times after restarting the plugin.

                    Question: Is it necessary to hit save all changes after clicking the "Create virtual" because it seems to do nothing if you don't hit save but crassed if you do. Are there any debug settings I can turn on?

                    • #11
                      Correct, all the editor changes are not applied until you save. There should be an exception file in the homseer directory (homeseer created). If not I will have to add more debug logging to see what is occurring, this is the first instance Ive seen of this.

                        No exception file I could find. Also I have determined that anytime I hit save the plugin crashes and disconnects and requires cycling regardless if I was attempting to create the virtual.

                          I'm experiencing the same behavior. Save. Crash. Disconnect. Restart. Lather. Rinse. Repeat.

                            Could you both kindly post your config (windows or linux, version #)?
