  1. Motion Sensor Timer

    For anyone interested, I was running into this problem as well and solved it with the following: When motion is detected --> Start Timer When Timer Starts --> Activate appropriate Lighting Scene When Timer Expires --> If Motion Sensor is Open...Reset Timer, If Motion Sensor is Closed...turn off lights Seems to work great for me. FYI - Make sure your Occupancy Hold Time isn't set crazy long...or the Timer will get Reset even though you may have left the room minutes before, then you would have to wait the entire Timer length again.
  2. This is great and simple way to do it...It works great now. Thanks a ton
  3. I'd like to be able to control the dimming up and down of my Wireless Outlet Dimmer LOZ-5D1-WH in small increments using my 260. I was thinking about using 2 of the red, green, blue, yellow buttons so that when you click it, it would go up from 0% -> 5% -> 10% -> 15% etc. I can't figure it out, and would like to hear from anyone on what/how they did it...or would do it? Programming specifics would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  4. That's it, I knew there had to be a place somewhere...Brilliant...thanks a ton
  5. I "think" I'm programming my experience button as you suggest with the variables. As far as "set all the pesky EB's to the right state..." after a reboot/restart...where do you do this? I would assume there is a "On Startup" event that I could do all that, but I'm not sure how to get to that...that's a great idea. Thanks
  6. The "Auto Update Driver Agent Event" scheduler runs every night at 3am. Unfortunately, I don't believe there is an option for turning off auto-update...at least that I know about. See image
  7. Unfortunately that didn't seem to change anything...it showed the exact same log as before. Anything else you can recommend?
  8. I just rebooted the controller so I'll check the logs in the morning...thanks for the suggestion
  9. I have been having what seemed to be random experience button clicks...so I bought the "Event Logging Driver" by @alanchow and it did exactly what I wanted...told me where the problem was. Now my issue is...Why is it happening? It appears that when the "Auto Update Driver Agent Event" schedule runs...that it is "clicking" or "reseting" my experience button. You will notice in the logs below, that I put in a temp fix where I take the value of the experience button and save it...then after the "Auto Update Driver Agent Event" schedule runs, I set the experience button to whatever it was prior to the "Auto Update Driver Agent Event". This is a hack fix, but wanted to know if anyone knows what's going on here? and how to fix? FYI - I promise that NO ONE is clicking the experience button at 3am in the morning.
  10. Zigbee Extender 3 question

    Again thanks for all your help. It's called SnagIt by TechSmith...I've been using it for years and I love it. I'm a visual person so this has always been helpful for me. http://shop.techsmith.com/store/techsm/pd/productID.289200200?_ga=2.67794769.1177003435.1495629384-1118381967.1495629081
  11. I recently purchased a contact and a relay for a reasonable price...with no real need for them, and I'm simply asking how you all have used yours to hopefully spark some creativity for how I could use them. Thanks
  12. For someone looking at this thread in the future...check out this article...it shows all the reset commands https://dealer.control4.com/dealer/knowledgebase/article/4 (FYI - Must be a dealer to access...sorry)
  13. Zigbee Extender 3 question

    So I took the extender and put in on the floor the same distance from the EA3 to the Motion Sensor...so right in the middle. I was able to re-identify the Motion Sensor doing this. I then took the extender to the nearest outlet that I could put the extender behind something and it still worked. The crazy thing is that the routing table doesn't show that the motion sensor is using the extender. But as of now...it's working. So I will accept this as a win and find the next C4 project. Thanks for all the help knowitall
  14. Zigbee Extender 3 question

    Ha...oh the joys of ZigBee I moved the extended into the kitchen...which is right in the middle of the diagram I attached earlier. Battery is at 96% The 200 is upstairs and is almost perfectly above the EA3...just on the 2nd floor.
