ok so hear me out before you shun me.
I bought hubitat a few weeks before wink went the way they did. Great timing on my part. But now im learning how to do rules in rule machine, and in the middle of doing the 11 or so rules i have this webinar comes out, and everyone is now re-writing and learning the "new" way of doing rules.
So that is great and all, but im struggling a little between figuring out what works the way i have it, sometimes looking for a state change, or looking for multiple triggers, VS using a known state and waits.
What is the actual difference? when does the performance of the hub get impacted? i know we can't just say 14 rules and your screwed if you dont do it the new way, vs 13 rules the old way is fine. but is there a way to know what the impact is? Should i really be worried about the old vs new way if the rule i wrote is working?
If there is a larger impact that makes writing these the new way necessary it would be nice if we could find a way to make re-writing these rules easier to understand.
For example i have two rules working together. One that watches for change in a plug energy level and sets a boolean value. then one that looks for that boolean to change then does an action depending on what state it is in. this works 100 percent of the time, its fast its reliable. but it doesn't fall into the new method so is it wrong? how can i do this with the new method?
