Thumbs up UltraLog3 (Database Logging) HSPI For HS3


UltraLog3 is a HomeSeer HS3 plug-in that stores HomeSeer and syslog events to an underlying database in real-time. The built in web interface allows you to query the data making it easier to turn your home automation log data into useful information.

How It Works
  • The UltraLog3 plug-in listens for HomeSeer events and inserts the log data into the database in real-time. The log data can be filtered for display purposes and the search results can be sorted and further searched to narrow down the log entries you are interested in.
  • The UltraLog3 plug-in adds a log trigger to HomeSeer that can be used to trigger a HomeSeer event based on the type or content of a log entry. When an event triggers, the UltraLog3 plug-in updates HomeSeer variables providing the ability for other scripts to access the log contents.
  • UltraLog3 can also listen for syslog events sent by Linux/Unix devices and supports similar features available for HomeSeer log events.

Main Features
  • Supports HomeSeer triggers based on text or regular expression matches on HomeSeer log events.
  • Supports syslog triggers based on text or regular expression matches on syslog log events.
  • Error Try/Catch logic to ensure plug-in doesn't fail with an unhandled exception.
  • Multiple threading allows UltraLog3 to process caller ID events without disrupting the performance of HomeSeer.

Example Usage
  • Generate an e-mail notification whenever the HomeSeer log or syslog type (informational, errors, warnings, errors) exceeds a set threshold for the last 15 minutes.
  • View and monitor syslog output from any system that supports the syslog protocol.
  • Generate an e-mail notification whenever someone access your HomeSeer system.
  • Generate an e-mail notification whenever someone access your network cameras.
