Has anyone tried to do this again? I think it would be a great thing to have to make things more "self sustaining".
What do you mean?
An error in logs as a trigger for an automation.
Ah, and it that were to throw an error you'd be in a fine mess indeed. This is not on our list of desirable features.
If you get an error, you should deal with it. If in a built-in app or driver, bring it to our attention here. If in a user app or driver, bring it to the author's attention.
I do this via NodeRed listening to the HE websockets and inserting rows into a MariaDB on my NAS. Then every 12 hours I get a push notification letting me know if there are any errors.
Hmmm I may have to check this out.
This setup also allows me to monitor devices to ensure they remain active since battery monitoring is terrible. The 12 hour push notification also tells me if a monitored device hasn’t reported in X hours along with any hub errors.
I'll have Log Watchdog back up and running this weekend. I miss it too. The only way to "deal with it" is to know that it's there!
I agree. If I'm not having a specific/obvious problem, I don't spend a lot of time looking at the logs.
But that doesn't mean there aren't occasional errors that I would like to know about.
Simple error monitor...
