Driveway Alert Macro
« on: October 08, 2023, 09:59:59 AM »

Hi
I am trying to get the driveway alert macro listed on one of the sites to work, I copied the code just like the way the example is but cannot get it to work? I am using a ms16 motion detector for a trigger, but i think the problem is I do not know how to set up the motion detector? can someone shed some light on how to do this? a picture of there setup would help!
Thanks John

The x10 wiki has a setup page for the ms16a https://kbase.x10.com/wiki/Active_Eye_Motion_Sensor_Setup
Your issue is not the setup of the ms16 it maybe a range problem

I think I have figured this out why it is not working, if you set up the macro just the way it is, it does not work. If you remove the time range and give it a specific time then it works. Can you set the macro for a time range, like in the attachment in this version of hg 1.19.3 stable or will this this statement not work in this version? see attachment

Which version of HG are you attempting to run this? Much has changed in the new 1.4.0  beta versions.

Use a timer (schedule) not a macro for this. >!
