Using DS10A to turn Living Room light on when triggered
« on: January 18, 2011, 09:49:59 AM »

AHP 3.304
OnAlert plugin required
Runs from the pc

These macros will turn on my living room ceiling light (if it is off) when the front door is opened and it is nighttime. Then it will turn the light off 10 seconds after the door is closed. If the light was already on prior to the front door opening, then I didn't want the light to turn off when the door is closed. In other words, if the light is on when the door is opened, no need to turn it on. And is the light was already on I don't want the light to turn off when I close the door.

I'm using a DS10A door/window sensor programmed in the console and ahp using the trigger event to turn the light on and the close event to turn the light off. Because I'm using the security sensor the whole process of macros must run from the pc. Also, since you cannot use conditions in macros triggered by security devices, I'm using a phantom appliance module.
