How do I check on contacts and sensors


(AT) #1

I recently got the tilt sensor from monoprice which is used to trigger thr garage door open/close.

Is there anyway I can have ST check the status of the “contact” every hour between 9pm and 5am OR when the system goes to night and away mode (when we leave the house)?

I did read there is a smartapp under the energy section, but that only has a trigger X hours after its opened or closed… So hoping there is an app that can be used to poll the sensors.

There are several ways to do this, but at this point, the most straightforward will be to use core because you have stacked conditionals. ( this is a clickable link)

Cool. Didn’t know this existed. But will read up on it.
Thanks!
