Title: Sound a Chime Every 17 Seconds
Post by: spam4us on October 24, 2007, 12:00:11 AM
This macro is triggered by another macro that turns on my back patio light.  In that macro, it sets D9 ON to trigger this macro.  This macro will ring a chime (N10) I have located near my back door and also another chime(N11) I have located in my basement.

This macro will only sound the chime once ever 15 seconds only if I have a monitored switch set to ON (Module Status On Chimes On/Off Ok).  This switch is controlled by a mini controller where I can press the ON/Off button.  There are times when I don't want the chime to ring at all (a cookout, etc.).
You'll notice some 1 second delays.  I put these in because the chime would not sound consistently. With the delays, they do.
