I am a new Hubitat user seeking input.
I have a rule which uses motion and contact sensor events to set a connector variable. The rule appears to work as expected. However being both curious and cautious I am using "Send notifications log to a local file to log sensor events” and “Append to local file” the status of the connector variable string; so I might have a record of an event sequence for which I may not have considered. The rule is successfully generating a local log file with the data in a readable manner.
Given I got this far. It was my hope to push it and use RM 5.1 to auto generate a new local file on a daily basis aptly named 14-Jan-2022.txt, 15-Jan-2022.txt, etc.
I “think(?)” I have used/tried the info here appropriately: Local Files in Rule 4.0 in an attempt to generate a file name and target file but I have reached a dead end.
I write this post now because I am slamming my wall against the head as it does not seem doable.
If I am missing something obvious, please enlighten me as I would be delighted to learn it was something obvious that I was missing or had yet to learn.
