The ‘Alerts’ trigger is almost complete and will be released soon.
I’ve had to complete quite a bit of coding to get this to work as a new ‘trigger’ without it announcing everytime the weather device reports.
It's difficult to test the code when you live in the UK!
We get lots of ‘weather’ (i.e. RAIN) but our weather is generally just that, nothing too severe.
I had to create a ‘fake’ weather device for testing
The alert should now only trigger when the weather device sends a change to the previous report.
This will mean that you will get a report like ‘there are no alerts’ for the first time it is installed.
After that it should only report if the weather device reports a change.
I’m not sure why @rayzurbock seems to have stopped developing BT2, maybe he just doesn’t have the time (I know real life get in the way sometimes)
I believe the issue for weather reporting in BT2 is that it used to use the getWeather() method in ST and that doesn’t exist in HE.
It’s funny, Message Central was created because I didn’t use half of the features of BT2 so decided to create something simpler, more tailored to my own needs.
Now it seems MC is as big as BT2 and has a similar range of features
Well, back to coding...
