Need help with a should be simple rule. I moved over to Webcore for my rules but my wife has gotten interested and wanted to learn how to control the HE so she wanted to make some rules for herself but she found webcore just to hard so she asked me to ove all the rules back to rule machine.
the reason i moved to Webcore was to me just to me simple rules were just plain and simple and I didn't need to go a round about way to get the rule to function unlike rule machine it seems like nothing is just really a simple rule in it.
But to get to the rule all i'm trying to do is when HSM has an alert I want it to speak on my speakers letting me know there is an intrusion what sensor is going off and repeat the message until we disarm HSM. I have tried everything possible to get this rule to work but the problem that i am having is 1 I can't get the variables to work it only says intrusion night or away what ever state HSM is in and i cant get the message to stop speaking after we disarm HSM.
To explain my situation and why we need it like this, is we can not have a traditional alarm that has a siren we have our special needs grandson living with us and when we had our ring alarm before he and my daughter moved in it was fine for us but the siren if it goes off accidently or ever he goes crazy and it makes him jumpy to the point that we cant calm him down for days on end so his therapist said that we needed to remove the sirens, so I purchased a Sonos system to speak alerts and it's better for him because it doen't set him off and hes okm with that because he just thinks it's Alexa talking. any help is always greatly appreciated and thank you in advance.
