Sometimes my mailbox sensor indicates motion with

Incoming Insteon received on INSTEON PLM controller
PLMMODEM.
From Address:[21.43.4F] To Address:[11.00.01] Flags:[195] Cmd1:
[6]
Cmd2:[0]. Decode: Group Broadcast. From: MBOX_SENSOR
Group:
1, Grp Brdcast Success/Fail

How do I program this trigger? I don't have a Trigger Type of "Grp
Brdcast" so what is correct?

Currently I'm detecting "Insteon Device Chg Id 1, Value On" and
Insteon Broadcast In" Value "Any".

Thanks!

Jeff,

Sorry to take so long getting back to you on this. The Group Broadcast Success/Fail message is a newer message sent by I2CS
devices as an indication of the success or failure of group cleanup commands (the direct commands sent following a group
broadcast). I know Im capturing them in the log but I cant remember if I provided a trigger for them.

I'll dig into the sourcecode tomorrow and provide you a definitive answer then. If I don't have support, I'll add it to the todo
list.

Dave.

Thanks Dave - sometimes with these wireless sensors every message
doesn't make it through so if there's a trigger I can use based on this
one as a failsafe it helps. No rush - standing by :-)

Jeff,

Checked it out and a trigger is indeed fired. The trigger type is:
Insteon Group In | The ID of motion sensor | The number of the group (1 in the case of your motion sensor) | Grp Brdcast Success/Fail.

Keep in mind that the Success/Fail message is essentially a "Group" message which is different from an Insteon "Broadcast" message (even
though group messages are broadcast and not sent direct to a specific unit). As such, your Insteon Broadcast In message will no effect with
your motion sensor. You can instead change this to an "Insteon Group In" trigger for the motion sensor and if you use an "(Any)" for the
trigger value (command type), it should catch it along with the actual Group commands that are sent.

Just make sure that you are set to fire a trigger on this command by running the following SQL statement from the Multi-Editor in SQL mode:
select * from insteoncmds where cmdtype = 0 and cmdnum = 6

The "Allowtrig" column should have a value of 1.

Hope this helps,

Dave.
