Using the ISY Trigger Engine - an alarm handler system

Recommended Posts

I created this alarm system with five different levels to make other ISY programs easier to use it.

 

I hope this gives other ISY users the feel for the power of the ISY event trigger handling engine. It can make programming so much easier once you set up a system to handle your user created events with STATE variables

 

It is based on a variable,  making the ISY engine do most of the work. The state variable triggers the select program to alert the owners with different severities.

 

 

To use I just use one line of program code.

  • Set $sAlarm.level = 5

 

Remember, that my sensing programs using this alarm system, each send their own specific notifications about the devices being monitored. These notifications are only to follow, or not, with a status indication that something is being done in regards to the detected problem.

 

 

 

This is Alarm.level = 0. The "no alarm" state and resting position all levels will reset to when done their "thing".

Alarm level 0 - [ID 00E2][Parent 00E4]
If
        $sAlarm.level is 0 
Then
        Set 'Mudroom / MudRm Beeper' Off
        Set 'Utility Room / Util Beeper' Off
        Wait  1 second
        Run Program 'Alarm level 0.1' (If) 
Else
   - No Actions - (To add one, press 'Action')
 

Alarm level 0.1 - [ID 00E3][Parent 00E4]
If
        $sHouse.armed is $cFALSE
    And $sAlarm.level >= 4 
Then
        Set 'Alarm scene flasher' Off 
Else
   - No Actions - (To add one, press 'Action')
 
We don't want normal house lighting turned off for low level alarms like Low Batteries etc.

$sALarm.Level = 1 gives a short beep on a few buzzlincs to alert the homeowner there is something to be looked at, and a notification should have been sent from the monitoring program.

Alarm level 1 - [ID 00DE][Parent 00E4]
If
        $sAlarm.level is 1

        Set 'Mudroom / MudRm Beeper' On
        Set 'Utility Room / Util Beeper' On
        Wait  1 second
        Set 'Mudroom / MudRm Beeper' Off
        Set 'Utility Room / Util Beeper' Off
        $sAlarm.level  = 0
Else
   - No Actions - (To add one, press 'Action')
