CoRE Help with notifications


(Joseph Fattizzi) #1

I want a notification if my garage door is left open after 10 minutes. I assume I can use CoRE for this? I have a smart app, but it is quiet old and sometimes it doesnt work.

Install webcore:

Then import this:

But if you want something a bit more funky, this is what I use for my back gate:

It sends me a message every 10 minutes reminding me the gate is open, with dynamic messages that state the duration the gate has been open:

WARNING - The back gate has been open for 10 minutes
WARNING - The back gate has been open for 20 minutes


WARNING - The back gate has been open for 1 hour and 10 minutes

etc. etc.

you need to add another SMS notification right after the while that says “Thank you for closing the gate, man, whatta draft…”

Thank you. But I dont know how to get the second script to work with my stuff. I dont want a text message, i want push notification to my phone only.

you need to enable contacts, select the needed contact(s) in the webCoRE parent app, then use the Send notification to contacts task and choose your PUSH contact.

But how to i create the expression to increase the notification by 10 minutes. So for example…the door is open 10 min, then the door is open 20 min. etc.

Contacts are a ST feature, a quick search in the forum for “enable contacts” brought me here:

EDIT: Follow this:

When editing the script, click on the part that sends the SMS and change it to send a push notification instead. Personally I prefer SMS messages because they leave a nice log and go ping!!

Cool. One last question. I have a piston in the original CoRE that contains a condition called “And if…” What is the equivalent in WebCore?

Just put an IF statement inside an IF statenent (but avoid triggers in the 2nd IF, only use conditions)
