Hi, I'm sure I could figure this out if I throw more time at it but someone has surely been here and done that. Example..As the mailman / Amazon just drop parcels in the porch I have fitted a motion sensor as a trigger and a sounder as a chime. This works well unless I was in the garden or something and missed the chime. Step 2, I could add a light and manual reset. BUT, what I am aiming for is an indicator on my dashboard that is JUST an output to the dash. Grey on inactive, colored (latch) on activation. From my trials so far I have tried virtual switch but the dash came up as unknown. Do I really have to make a physical endpoint just so the dash indicator looks ok, as that would be a physical stress on the physical relay if I choose to flash the dash mimic.
I'm sure a dozen people have something like this working just fine.
Ps Thanks to the community out there, my Hub was a bit of a head scratcher on the day it arrived but it's now starting to do useful stuff.
