Hi Patrick et all,
Just want to make sure I’m doing something right, I have a reactor sensor that turns some lights on and off at a various schedule, based on the sensors trip state (it’s working fine with all my conditions and sub groups… loving it!!!).
So, I wanted to include an extra “group C” that monitors the group-state of a two other groups alreadyt actively used in the sensor (I’ll Call them group A & Group B), because if Groups A & B are true, I want to turn on extra side-light near the rear of the house, (but only under this case.)
I don’t want the evaluation of Group C to affect the overall trip state of the Parent Sensor, So I assigned “NULL” to group C, but still set an activity if “Group C” is true to turn on the side light. (does that make sense?)
I think I’ve used the logic properly, this is essentially what the NULL state is intended for… (i.e. to not affect the state of a Parent), unless I’ve missed something.
So… This morning, group A & B were both true, yet my side light didn’t turn on… I checked the status, and despite the fact Group A & B were each evaluating true, The evaluation of Group C still showed false in the status.
Any idea why Group C would still be showing false, when all the conditions under it are evaluating true? I thought maybe I wasn’t using the NULL state for group C properly? or if I discovered a bug?
Can you advise?
