  • Feature Request for Groups: It would be handy to have Triggers/Conditions/Actions for group strings that match the current options for group device values and status.

    Examples:

    IF any device in group Example Group had its string (changed, changes and becomes, changes and contains, changes and does not contain, changes and matches regular expression)

    THEN Set all devices in Example Group strings to (string, $$DTA:variable string:, or regular expression).

    Thanks for your consideration,

    --Barry

      Use case: get an alert if any of my temperature sensors stops reporting for some reason. I use them for heat-control, so it’s important to know if any of them stops reporting.
      Any chance this will be added?

        This seems useful, but if added, I'd like to see it include a few variations / options: (1) A "Not Changed" version as proposed; and (2) A "Not Set" version. The "Not Set" may be needed for some use cases -- i.e., the not-working detection use -- because if the device continues to get "set", but to the same value, you wouldn't want to generate a "not working" report.

        I'd also suggest there be any / all options ("If any device in group has not been change or set ...", or "If all devices in group have not been change or set ...). For the "If any" option is used, I assume it would populate the "standard" global variables used by ET to identify a triggering device.

        I could see this use for the "not working" use case but also a more mundane presence case ("If All [Motion Sensors in a Group] have not changed in 20 minutes AND If all [Motion Sensors in the Group] are set to "No Motion", THEN turn off the lights).

        • Hi spud,

          Would be very helpful for all of the triggers in "A Device's Value is..." to be available in the "Any Device's Value in Group is..." triggers. I am particularly interested in the ones highlighted below, but seems maybe they should all be available for groups for the sake of completeness, except maybe the comparison one (not sure how that would work)?

          Thanks for considering...

            I second this one. The Group functions are extremely useful. As further clarity, I'd like to see this as an "if Any in group" and an "If All in group" option, where if the trigger occurs due to the "If Any" you also get the et global parameters set so you can see which one caused the trigger.

            • One feature, that would be really helpful is this condition for groups:

              and If any of these devices in group xx, has been ( and has not been): this value|in range, for at least this time.

                spud, any thoughts on extending these Device triggers to Groups?

                Sure would be useful for some events I am creating that would otherwise require *many* OR IF triggers (and also several conditions on each OR IF).
