For some reason, I don't see any events from this device. I can get current state by using an inject node but there is no event generated when the state changes (open/close). I have tried with the event node as well as with the device node (with the send event box checked) and nothing shows up. I am trying to use this in place of my somewhat unreliable GoControl garage door open contact sensor but I need the event to trigger other automations.
I have a notification set up in HE on open/close for this device and that is working fine. Any idea what I am missing?
Yeah - I saw that one. You were adding an new attribute to an existing device, right? In my case, this hasn't worked from the start. I'm fairly certain about this as I log the events to a database and the reason I started looking at debug was because I wasn't seeing any entries in the database.
I then went in and created two small flows (one with the inject node+device node and one with the event node) to check if the event got published, but I saw a bunch of other events, just nothing for this device.
I will try the remove/re-add and see if that fixes it.
