The plugin keeps an internal count of how many tracked devices are on, and relies on communication from Indigo to know when anything changes. This error indicates that the internal count has gotten out-of-sync (less than zero or more than max), which implies that the plugin is missing messages from Indigo.

This is most likely not an issue directly with the plugin, and I wouldn't be surprised if you were also seeing Server Communication errors. If you have configured the plugin to display the timer value in the UI, then you might want to turn that off as it does increase the communication load to/from Indigo. Otherwise, it's a matter of tracking down the root cause of the communication error (which is a difficult task, as I know too well).

Sorry I can't be more helpful.

Hi there-

It's been a while but I believe I've discovered the root cause of this and so I wanted to share.

Threshold timers do not have On or Off persist cycles. If you start by creating a Persistence timer, then change it to a Threshold timer, you will occasionally get these "count of of sync" errors. This happens to me because I often forget the timer I want to use, and I need to read your description on the top of the configuration dialog.

Anyway, wanted to report this. Other than the log error, the devices still work correctly.
