Author Topic: Triggering a Macro with a module ON command and also the macro timer  (Read 3907 times)

I have a macro(A) that I want to trigger when a designated module turns ON and also trigger from its macro timer if not run previously that day.  I can't seem to get the macro to do both.  It triggers from the designated module ON command but will not also trigger from the timer on the Macro.  I want the macro to run when a designated module turns ON or run at a dusk if the designated module does not get turned on previously.  Any comments?

I have seen this problem myself. Can you separate the timer from the macro so it separately activates a dummy module which in turn triggers macro A? You can also add a condition within the macro so it runs onlt when the designated module is not ON.

Thanks for the comment.  I have done as you described and it also works.  However, I would rather not "waste" a module address if there was a better way that I had not discovered.
