I noticed that my porch light came on at about 3:30am this morning, but I can't find any logging of it in hubitat. The only thing that I can think of that could have turned it on was my HSM intrusion-night rules.
These are the last 2 events logged in the device event log:
|switch|off||Porch Light was turned off|DEVICE||2019-09-21 01:29:29.500 AM
|switch|on||Porch Light was turned on|DEVICE||2019-09-20 08:40:37.333 PM
But the light came on (and I shut it off) in between those two events, Neither event appears to have been logged by hubitat. I do send some events to MQTT and can see the light come on and of there, so I'm a bit troubled by how and why these events are missing from the hubitat event log:
2019-09-21T03:34:33.788Z - info: Incoming message from MQTT: hubitat/Porch Light/switch = on
2019-09-21T03:40:14.934Z - info: Incoming message from MQTT: hubitat/Porch Light/switch = off
I suspect that HSM turned the light on based on one of my conditions, but I can't find any logging anywhere to support this, which leads to a number of questions:
Is hubitat dropping event logs?
Does HSM log its events at all?
Does any kind of visual indicator in the interface to show that an HSM alarm event fired?
Is there a provision in HSM to "reset" after a period of time? That is, if I have a rule that tells hsm to turn on a light on motion when armed, can I have the light turn off again after n minutes?
Anybody have any luck sending an HSM alert to an echoSpeaks device? Does it just work as a speach device?
Is there an easy way to trigger an HSM rule for the purpose of testing alerts? It would be nice if there was a button in the interface to verify the alerting.
