Alarm sensors showing tripped/tampered but not OPEN CLOSED
« on: February 16, 2018, 08:15:15 pm »
I'm trying to set up some scenes where my wired and wireless door/window sensors are in the OPEN state or CLOSED state to trigger a scene.  BUT I noticed on all of the sensors when I go into add scene and the device I now only have Tripped, Tampered, Low Bat options, not OPEN CLOSED. 

What I ultimately want to do is - When after sunset, the garage door (wired sensor) is OPEN, to send alert to me. 

I have the Envisalink4 w/ Vista panel, vera plus

Thoughts?

Make sure you are adding the sensor to the trigger area of the scene.
I see this when I am setting up a scene to do this and select my alarm sensor for a door or window.

Figured it out, on the EVL3Vista device, Use Custom Sensors has to be DISABLED. then reload and now back to normal :)

Scene still does not work though, i have it set up as follows:
Trigger - GARAGE DOOR is OPENED WHETHER ARMED OR DISARMED
       Time Restrictions set for Mon-Sun 4-5pm (for testing)

Action - Turn on Light (just for testing purposes)

Doesn't work if it's left OPEN only works if it's actually OPENED during that time period.  I need a scene to remind me I left it open at night.

Thoughts?

This is probably better asked in the Program Logic Plugins subforum. http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/board,48.0.html

Here is how I have my garage door trigger set up - if let open for more than 10 minutes I get a notification on my phone. You can tweak it for your purposes.
