Question about automation and history delays

Hey everyone! I have a question regarding smartthings and history delays.
I notice my v3 hub is not writing history so fast from my very fast updating zigbee devices, but in the main screen of the device i see a actual updating value. On automations, are they activated from history or from actual values?

They are triggered by the actual value sent from the device.

So before history is written, the automation is triggered?

Yes, and history can take a long time to update. What you’re experiencing in your first post is normal behavior.


super, thanks for the help!
