Timed Action & eMail Address

Hi There -

Three questions.

1. Is there any way to have an eMail script send an eMail to an address DIFFERENT than what is configured within InControl? For example, for one trigger I want it to go one address (which works fine), but for a different trigger I want it to go to a different address.

2. What's the best way to trigger an action when a binary switch has been tripped for a certain amount of time (ie 3 minutes)?

3. How can I modify a script to "know" the device ID that triggered the script?

Thanks All!!

Edit: added 3rd question.


1) Yes. Here's an example: sendEmail("your@email.com", "Subject goes here", "Body here.");

2) Best bet is to setup a trigger that runs every few seconds. Your scene would then have a condition on it that checks to make sure a device is at a state for 3 minutes.

3) You'll need the latest version for this. See details here

Thank you!!! I just purchased 3 years up updates and updated to the latest. I'm a little leery of the experimental versions so I'll wait until that device info feature makes it into a stable release.

I also just bought the Nest plugin. Awesome!!! Works great too!! I'm really liking my investment in your software.

I'll give the trigger option a try and see how that works. Thanks again!
