Setting KMS to Off after Computer Power Down

Since the KMS can't switch the device off at monitored computer power down I have implemented the following work around:

1. Manually assign the KMS device a HomeSeer code. (Spud this might be a feature request, that when the devices are created they are automatically given a HomeSeer code).

2. In conjunction with 'UltraMon' (Ultra's Network Monitoring plug-in...sure it will work with Blades also) I set up an event that when the computer goes 'troubled' (aka is powered off) and the KMS device is still showing as on, I run a &hs.SetDeviceValue command line script that turns the KMS device off.

Example as follows:

thank you for sharing

the device address is legacy from HS2, in HS3 you can use the Reference ID and the SetDeviceValueByRef function
