logs saying why light turned on

Recommended Posts

something very helpful would be to know why a device (like a dimer switch) turned on. was it physical or was it a program? if a program or scene, which one? 

that would avoid customer saying "light turned ON on it's own!!!"

if logs were saying "on - physical" that would be pretty helpful. "no mister customer, you turned it on at 8:43,33 manually. see... physical"

or "on - scene:allOn" I could tell customer "light turned on because you triggered the all On scene.

with current logs, I can confirm customer is right: the light turned on, yes. why? maybe a program, maybe physical...

unless im missing something :-)

There's no way for a scene to report its status.

If a program turned on a device you can view the status of that program in the program summary tab.

If a device turned on due to noise on the powerline it won't be reflected in the log or the program  summary tab.
