    Hi,

    Can I request "not equal to"in the device comparison trigger? I use a whole load of events to control lighting and sometimes after a power cut or if a Z-Wave module misses a command etc. things can get out of sync. I would like to create an event that went:

    If Device A's value <> Device B's value then set Device A= Device B (or whatever other action).

    Then I can have a manually-run event that polls the lighting modules, then runs events like the one above and makes sure every light is on at the level it's supposed to be...

    It would be great if there were a way to use a device value in an action by selecting a device by name from a drop-down rather than having to use replacement variables, which are subject to issues when devices are renamed/deleted & recreated eetc. and for readability of events later on when you come back to try and work out why something isn't behaving as you expected!


    Thanks,

    Jon.

      In version 3.0.0.12, I added "<>" (i.e. not equal to) as a possible operator for comparing device values

      I will probably add the action you suggested in a future version as well

        In version 3.0.0.13 I have added the "Set Device to another Device" action

          That's a lot more convenient. Thanks.

          Have you thought about the triggers in post #45 above?

              This is working well for me except I have a "Master Dimmer" virtual device, that controls 4 Cooper Z-Wave dimmers. When I use the device variable for the virtual device to set the values of the 4 dimmers to the virtual device, it works fine. The virtual device does not come up in the dropdown choices under devices when I use "Set device to another device". Under the native "Control a device" the virtual device is in the dropdown.

              In the screenshot you can see that the virtual device is set to be controlled, but it does not show up in the Easy Trigger dropdown.

                If you have created or renamed this device recently, you need to restart the plugin. The list of devices is built internally at start up.

                  Thanks, I actually knew that and have told other people. But, of course when it happens to me, I forget

                    Provide a range option and not equal option for "This device has been/for at least..." or "This device has been/for exactly...".

                    That would allow triggering of events when a light has been in a dimmed condition for a certain period of time. For example:

                    IF Device has been not equal to OFF for exactly 5m, 0s -or-
                    IF Device has been not equal to OFF for at least 5m, 0s -or-
                    IF Device has been a value in the range of 1% to ON for exactly 5m, 0s -or-
                    IF Device has been a value in the range of 1% to ON for at least 5m, 0s
                    in version 3.0.0.17 available here I have added the following triggers:
                    "This device's value has been in range [X,Y] for exactly..."
                    "This device's value has NOT been in range [X,Y] for exactly..."

                      Can we rename schedule names?
                      Can we make copies of schedules to be used as a base to modify?

                        You can't rename them, but you can create a new schedule and copy and paste the text from an existing schedule to the new one. That would serve both purposes, it could rename an existing schedule, or be used as a template then altered in the new schedule.

                          D'oh!

                          Thanks

                          I guess the only downside is that if the schedule is already referred to by events, you'll have to change those events to point to the newly created instance.

                            I would like to see a three Triggers for
                            1. The devices Status does not change for a period of time" then a selector for days/hours/minutes/seconds.
                            2. The devices Value does not change for a period of time" then a selector for days/hours/minutes/seconds.
                            3. The devices String does not change for a period of time" then a selector for days/hours/minutes/seconds.

                            It seems this would make adding watchdog/heartbeat checks much easier to accomplish.

                              are there any plans to make it so you can compare values from timers and/or counters with the comparison feature or should i set them up using the strings and variables?
                              i would like to have events that check to see if timer A is less than timer B so you can tell if someone is going into or out of a room.

                                In recent versions of HS3, timers and counters now appear as HS devices, so you can use the trigger/condition "Comparison between 2 device values"
