First Automation Rule not working

Postby payment » Fri Jan 25, 2008 12:05 am

I am trying to get my first automation rule to work and having no luck.

My rule is as follows:

Whenever mllighting_dining_keypad_button_5_status changes value
Then MLServeCmd.MLElkM1|AT~7

I can see the variable status update correctly from ON to OFF, but I never see the command hit the verbose events log nor does the Elk command activate.

Command does work correctly when i type it into the SEND COMMAND window. So I know I have it written correctly.

Thanks for any help.

If you are using the MLInsteonPLM plugin, you cannot have FastVar selected. If it is, the veriable update bypasses the event processor so you're event will never trigger.
