Scene Stops Checking for Trigger

Hi Everyone,

I have a scene that is acting as my home security alarm and I am having some trouble with it. The scene is set up to trigger every 30 seconds with a condition for a virtual device at the on state for 45 seconds. This scene is set to turn on my siren. This setup works great and then for some reason after a while it just stops triggering. The only way to fix this seems to be to create a new scene and delete the old one. Does anyone have any ideas to have a more reliable alarm setup?

What are the triggers and the conditions for your scene? Can you go to tools/options and set the item to "log extra scene data" - then, watch your logfile.txt to see what it says is going on with your scene when it stops working.

This is probably a case of the scene log jamming up the works, yeah? He is triggering the scene every 30 seconds. I believe I had a similar issue and you made a version with a truncating scene log.

I have turned on the "log extra scene data" so I guess I will have to wait until the scene stops triggering again.

You may also go snag the latest update as well, just in case it is as MadSci suggests and is an issue with too much logging.
