Action

The "Action" button adds the action information in the ‘Then’ and ‘Else’ section of the program. It defines the action taken after the condition is met or the trigger occurs.

An Action can be setting a device to a defined state that is ON/OFF or set level. The type of Action is dependent on the device type. The two types of device Actions that are supported are INSTEON or Send X10 .

Insteon
Set an insteon device or scene (eg. set the On-Level of a lamp)
Optionally (with the add-on A10/X10 module) A10/X10 devices that have been added to the Device tree can be controlled.
Send X10
Adding an X10 action to a program
Sends this as a complete X10 command.

  • This X10 command will be sent as a pair of messages, the first identifying the X10 devices, the second containing the command.
    Notify
    Adding an Notify action to a program
    Sends an e-mail notification to the addresses entered in the system configuration.

    Wait

    Adding a Wait action to a program
    Waits for the specified amount of time. If the Random checkbox is checked, then a random value from 0 to the specified time is used.

  • A wait stops when the conditions change.
    Repeat
    Repeats all of the actions following it, to the end of the list, or to the next Repeat entry.
    Adding a Wait action to a program
    Repeats the number of times specified. If the Random checkbox is checked, then a random value from 0 to the number of times specified is used.

    Adding a Wait action to a program
    Continuously repeats at this interval, as follows:
  • A repeat stops when the conditions change.
  • To break a Repeat sequence, add a "Repeat 1 times". Actions after this Repeat will only run once (that is to say, they won't repeat at all). This is useful when you want some Actions repeated, but then want to continue on with more Actions that should not be repeated.
  • The Repeat and Wait actions have a "Random" option. This is set by selecting the Random check box. A Random value from 1 to the entered value will be randomly chosen each time the action is run. </dl>
