New to Hubitat, I apologize in advance if these are newbie mistakes or assumptions. On HE C-8 I’m using HSM to monitor 7 water sensors and 7 smoke/CO detectors throughout my home. All text and light alerts are working fine. I also have a Zooz ZSE19 Multisiren which is working perfectly in HSM for water and smoke/CO alerts and in Rule Machine.
BUG 1: I created an HSM Custom Rule to monitor a contact sensor connected to my basement sump pump alarm. All text and light alerts work fine. I added the Zooz ZSE19 as a siren alert but it doesn’t work. All other alerts work except the siren. I checked my HE log file and whenever the siren is supposed to turn on in the HSM custom rule ‘Sump Pump’ I see this orange warn entry: Ignoring 'on' command because Switch On Action Setting is set to 'Do Nothing'. I tried removing this HSM custom rule then creating again but same results. When adding siren I select Siren & Strobe, same as everywhere else I’ve used it without issue. I observed when re-creating the HSM custom rule, after selecting the siren, the value displayed for Siren Alerts was ‘115, 105, 114, 101, 110 => Zooz Siren’. This seemed buggy to me so I removed the siren from HSM custom rule, added it back in and it displayed the normal ‘siren and strobe => Zooz Siren’ but still not working. I also tried creating a few other HSM Custom Rules using other sensors and the siren doesn’t work for any custom rule I create in HSM with same log error noted above. It works everywhere else in HE including HSM standard monitoring, just not in HSM custom rules.
BUG 2: My workaround fix to get the siren working for my sump pump alarm was to create a rule in Rule Machine that’s triggered by [HSM Alert Reports: Rule, HSM Custom Rule: Sump Pump]. If I understand correctly this should only trigger in Rule Machine when my HSM custom rule ‘Sump Pump’ goes into Alert mode (alarm activated). I’m also using another rule to turn off the siren when I cancel the HSM custom rule alert, that’s triggered by [HSM Alert Reports: cancelRuleAlerts, HSM Custom Rule: Sump Pump]. This is actually working fine with only one issue: Any other HSM custom rules I create also trigger my sump pump siren, via [HSM Alert Reports: Rule, HSM Custom Rule: Sump Pump]. So, rather than this trigger/variable being specific to my HSM custom rule named ‘Sump Pump’ it’s instead triggered by any and all HSM custom rule alerts. If this is how it’s supposed to work then why does Rule Machine provide a dropdown to choose which HSM Custom Rule?
Other than these hiccups I’m really enjoying my new HE C-8! Great design, great product, and the Hubitat community is fantastic. Former ST user for many years so configuring devices and automations/rules on my computer rather than phone is a gift, thank you.
