    Question about using status names instead of numbers for If statements

    I am writing some If statements and want to use the status names instead of the values. I can do this using the normal HomeSeer If statements but using Easy Trigger. Am I missing something or does is this feature not available?

    I do this all of the time. Make sure the status/graphics values are set up correctly for the device you want to use.

      kenm and spud wondering if you have run into this... the status/graphics on my cameras are set to the 'actual status', and control what it reports to HS events BUT the 'displayed text' is the frame rate. SO, when I use $$GLOBALVAR:ETDeviceStatus_CamerasAll: to pull the status from the triggering device, it actually shows the 'displayed text' and not the status/graphics text.

        Yes, I've seen this as well. Something is setting the device status to that frame rate string which overrides the status/graphics status text. Are you using a plugin for your cameras?

        EDIT: On the status/graphics page, scroll down to Advanced Information and look at what the device value is. I'd be curious to see if it's something other than 1, 2, 4, or 5,

          The Blue Iris plugin writes the frame rate to the device string. AFAIK, HS always overwrites the current status with the string, if a string value exists.

            This is consistent with what I've seen as well. I accidentally wrote to device text while developing a script and it threw me off for some time before I figured out that I needed to clear that text before the status values would display again.
