Not sure if this is where I should post this question so I will give it a try and see if anyone can help me. About a month I purchased a SmartLink INSTEON Central Controller. The primary reason for doing so was that I wanted to be able to control my INSTEON devises through my iPod touch. I do like the general functionality of using the controller however it lacks in so many other places for example creating triggers or actions. I then turned toward purchasing Indigo 4.1 for handling more complex type tasks however I now need to have a dedicated Mac for running this application. This is a problem since the only Mac I own is a MacBook and I take it everywhere.
Ok now for the question. I purchased a INSTEON TriggerLink devise and two INSTEON Access Points and have successfully connected the TriggerLink to an access point in my garage. I have also successfully added control of a remote INSTEON devise (A lamp in my living room - LampLinc - INSTEON Plug-In Lamp Dimmer Module, 3-Pin) Now when the garage door is open the light will become lit. Allowing me to know when the garage door is open. However what I rally would like to happen is, when the garage door is open after sunset and before sunrise then the light would come on and also send an email to me indicating the garage door is open.
I have created a trigger event from within the Indigo software to tray and accomplish this task however the thing that does work is the turning on or off of the light based on my previous step of manually adding a control of a remote INSTEON devise per the TriggerLinc instructions.
Here are the properties created for the trigger within Indigo,
Name: Email - Garage Door Open
Trigger Type - INSTEON Command Recevied
Received: Any Command
From: Devise LivngRm Light
Condition: If dark (before sunrise, after sunset)
Action: Type - Send Mail
I original thought that I would need to change Trigger from devise to the TriggerLink however that devise is not listed in the drop down. I also have never been able to add a access point devise in the indigo software. Not sure if I even need to add those devises but when I try and manually add them I was get the same error indicating: Failed to establish a link with the devise, verify the INSTEON address and make sure the devise is plugged in/or correctly installed. I have made sure the address is correct and I have tried several locations including those locations in order to get the two access points connected.
Any help would help correcting this problem. Thanks
