I’m new to RemindR, but not ST. I’m feeling flustered at the moment as I keep reading how intuitive it is to set a reminder (I’ve read this entire thread), but I can’t seem to get it to work. The installation went fine. I’m trying to create a simple reminder in order to get a feel for how the app works. All I want is a brief ad-hoc report that plays when I open my bedroom door each weekday morning. Here’s what I have…
I have created Reminder that generates the report. The notification type is Ad-Hoc Report. Under “Play this…” I have my report created that reads current and high temps for the day. The preview looks exactly like it should.
I have created another Reminder to trigger that report. (I couldn’t figure out how to do it all in one Reminder.) The Notification Type is “Triggered Report”. My trigger is “Recurring”, “Daily”, starting at 4:40am. Sensor Status is my Bedroom Door when state changes to open. The Output Method is my Living Room Speaker. I have chosen the Ad-Hoc Report that I created above. The restrictions are “certain time” between 4:40am and 6:00am.
In my testing last night the only thing that happened was that the Intro Sound played every time the bedroom door was opened, so I had to disable that or face the wrath of the wife. (I added the time restriction later, so it still should have played last night.) This morning nothing happened when I opened the bedroom door around 5am. I would appreciate any input on where my issue may be. I’m afraid it’s something that should be obvious that I’m just overlooking.
