    Help with easy trigger and group status changes

    I am starting with Easy Trigger and I guess I chose to start with a complicated situation.

    I have 4 Yale door lock at home of 2 different models, unfortunatly, Yale modified their Notification status values and both models are reporing different values for "lock jammed", "manual lock" and "RF lock" ...

    Before using Easy Trigger, I had 4 events per lock to notify me via Pushover whenever there was a specific Status other than "Manual Lock" or "Auto Lock". I was hoping to diminish those 16 events to only 4 (1 per event ie: lock jammed, RF lock, RF Unlock ...) but I soon found out that since I do not have a single value for the same event for all lock I could not use the group triggering on values.

    I tought I could trigger on Status instead of values (I can easily change the Status in the device Status graphic tab) Is there anyway to do the triggering on a status string match on a group of devices ? ex: if any device in a group have a status changed and contains "lock jammed" ?

    You can change the name to be consistent on all locks and then group them.

            I believe this will require a script as it is part of the VSP data.

            There is a similar question answered here.
