I’m having an issue with a basic scene I set up. When a certain device is “opened” (a z-wave relay), it is supposed to wait two seconds, then close it. Basically equivalent to “when switch is turned on, wait two seconds then turn it back off”. Nothing fancy. The problem is that even though the scene is triggered properly (according to the last run timestamp at least), the relay device is never closed.
The really weird part, though, is that if I then click the run button on the scene to manually run it (while the relay is still “open”), it does properly close the relay after the set delay. It’s only when it is triggered by the relay opening that it does not.
So, to recap:
- Scene is properly triggered by device “opening”
- Scene does not properly “close” device after triggering
- Manually triggering the scene with the device opened DOES properly “close” the device.
Note that I don’t care about the exact delay, as long as the relay is “closed” again shortly (within a few seconds) after being opened. Essentially the relay is pushing a button, and I need it to not hold it down.
How might I fix this?
