I have 4:

- If a garage door is left open over 5 minutes

- If the pool house door opens

- If a barn door opens

(I have a 15 minute delay on the 2 above so I dont get a ton of emails)

- If a battery is low in a sensor

I use them to tell me if things happen while I am away primarily. I also have it setup so if my kids are outside playing, I can put it in that "mode" and if any of the gates or doors open it fires of a text message to me and my wife, as well as plays an announcement in the house.

Now that I am on 1.8 and higher I will probably use them more frequently (if I can get them working again: http://www.c4forums.com/viewtopic.php?id=6178) because I can now include a variable. I will use that to do temperature checks around my property (I have several card access units mounted around the outside monitoring my gates).

I use them for knowing when my kids get home from school

When traveling I know when my wife fell asleep on the couch, because the alarm arms itself

Reminder to take out the trash

My wife yells at me “Why you stocking me”

:)

I have mine triggered on almost any event. Especially during the night.

-Door Locks

-Windows

-Motions

-Garage Door

-Side Doors

I personally like knowing when my kids leave or if someone comes to the house.
