Usage Information

This page will try to list valid parameters that can be used in the Event Criteria section of advanced Events. Note that there may be differences in the behaviour of "Respond to Events" and "Timed Events". Where nothing is specified, it refers to "Respond to Events"

For integer criteria and event parameters, you can enter a list of values separated by commas to easily check for all of them.

Respond to Event

0 = Sunday

Timed event

This allows you to check the state of a device in your event handler. The device state can be seen on the Advanced Pages Devices in the State field. The value in the state field is dependent on what type of device it is, so be sure to check before you make a event parameter.

Some device types have special handling.

If you select a climate or lighting device (since svn 30915), a new drop down will be available where you can select what data you want to compare. For climate devices, On/Off, Mode, Fan, Set Point and Current Temp are available, for lights it is On/Off and Brightness.


Time of Day

Timed Event

24hr based time (eks: 15:00).
Multiple entries can be separated by comma.

Or a time given in the
hh:mm or hh:mm:ss format (12:45, 21:22:10 etc).
