Get ping notifications to work
« on: June 08, 2011, 02:04:40 pm »
Hello,

I'm using the the ping sensor plugin and I have the device configured to send a notification when the ping fails and then when the ping is successful.  I must not have it set up correctly because I am not getting any notifications at all.  When I logon to my mios account my notifications sent is 0 and I have correctly updated my contact info.  In the UI4 I see the device toggle (on/off) when I stop pinging and when it starts pinging so the device is definitely capturing the change on Vera, just not sending the configured notifications.

Basically what I want to have happen is when something stops pinging I want a notification and when it comes back online I want to be notified.  Unfortunately I don't have any other zwave devices at my house as they are on order, so I wanted to get some other things working first. 

Just out of curiosity why is there no way in UI4 to view any logs of what is going on.

@dagint

can you post a screenshot from your ping sensor notification settings?

For reference please also read this thread as Ping Sensor is slowly coming back to life after quite some time where noone was coding/improving it.

I was pretty much trying anything so i doubled up the notifications just trying to get one of them to work. 

When I tail the LuaUPnP.log file this is what I get:

06      06/08/11 14:20:31.058   Device_Variable::m_szValue_set device: 13 service: urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:SecuritySensor1 variable: Tripped was: 0 now: 1 #hooks: 4 upnp: 0 v:(nil)/NONE duplicate:0 <0x402>
07      06/08/11 14:20:31.061   Event::Evaluate 13 test_up scene test_up is true <0x402>
08      06/08/11 14:20:31.061   Scene::RunScene running 18 test_up <0x402>

06      06/08/11 14:20:31.066   Device_Variable::m_szValue_set device: 13 service: urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:HaDevice1 variable: LastUpdate was: 1307545561 now: 1307557231 #hooks: 0 upnp: 0 v:(nil)/NONE duplicate:0 <0x402>
01      06/08/11 14:20:31.067   RAServerSync::SendNotification no notification for Tripped=1 <0x402>
01      06/08/11 14:20:31.068   RAServerSync::SendNotification no notification for Tripped=1 <0x402>


I'm not sure I looking at the correct log file, but seems to fit what's going in my environment.

@dagint

Lately users noticed failing notifications more often.

There are a few other ways to test your setup...
1. uses texts instead of email or vice versa from the MyMios page

2. If you have and iphone use Prowl
Prowl info here:
http://forum.mios.com/index.php?topic=4508.0

3. If you use an Android phone use Veralert:
Veralert info here:
http://forum.mios.com/index.php?topic=5957.0

Or use email notifications using the Lua SMTP socket

Another notification option for Android is Notify my Android:

It mimics Prowl for iPhone.
