Can system start up trigger a rule/action?

When power gets restored after an outage some devices revert or go to an undesirable state. Is there a way I can create a rule that at hub start-up immediately runs some actions? Currently im using a rule with periodic triggers like every 30min to check and set states of outlets and switches.

Believe that RM and webCoRE both have a System Start trigger that can fire a rule/piston.

Yeah, in Rule Machine, you can create a trigger with capability "Location Event" and event "systemStart."


Here is a example.

Awesome! Rule made..

Power just came back on and none of the actions were completed. Looking at logs it didn't even try. Do I need a delay in the beginning of the actions to give it time to initialize?
