    Is there a way to poll a group of devices within EasyTrigger?

    There are times when I want to test if a device is on before I do another function which may turn that device off but I want to make sure the device has been on for at least a couple fo second before I do. Think timing out a light based on a timer but the timer continues to run. This can be done easily with the built in tests so all works fine.

    The problem comes when I want to do the same with a group but I want to make sure that all the devices in the group have been in the given condition for at least x length of time first. That I can't do.

    I'd like to see a group test that works like the built in single device test but the time applies to the entire group.

    Then I could say if any/all ... for least x seconds.

    If there is a way to do this and I missed it then forget the whole thing.

    spud this is great. Not sure if you were around in the HS1.x days but there was a script that did this back then - super useful.

    A thought...

    if you could combine Push/Pop with ET Groups then we'd have some pretty cool scene functionality. Basically telling ET to gather all the device values from in a Group, and put them on the stack.

    One step further would be to add the ability to have 'default' values for each device in a Group (set in the ET plugin group itself) and then be able to call those defaults whenever.

    scenario...

    manually change several lights over the evening
    *guests come over*
    -- PUSH the current values to the stack
    -- Call ET Group Defaults (all device values change to default)
    *an hour later, guests leave*
    -- POP ET Group stack values to return to prior settings

    I also disable plugins to be updated. But in addition - I do each plugin update one-by-one, i.e.
    • disable one plugin
    • update one plugin
    • enable back (optional)
    • repeat for other plugins
    Because I found if you update all at once and there's an issue with one of the plugins - you don't really know the current update state...

    • Update plug-in(s)
    • Enable plug-in(s)
    Some plug-in update properly while running, but many do not. It is just easier and cleaner to follow the ritual.

    I didn't but I do now -- thanks!!

    LOL, I have all sort of trouble mis-reading posts, especially when browsing late at night (or real early in the morning).

    Now reading more carefully I think I can correctly answer your question. The Any/All appears to be available only as a condition (AND IF) but not a trigger (IF).
    FOUND IT!!! Thank you very much sir!!

    This just eliminated 10 events, a counter, and a virtual device -- this is great!

    You're very gracious. My mental multi-threading is quite limited so these subforums with several concurrent conversations do trip me up!

    I have 3.0.0.56 installed, but I don't see that trigger -- am I looking in the right place? (See attached).

    Thanks!

    Your screenshot is of Triggers (IF) and the new addition that jvm was referring to is a Condition (AND IF)
