Is there an activity log of things turning on and off in HC3?


RohitNz

Question

in HC2, one could look at the activity log to see when devices turned on or off.  It was a pig of a thing to use, but it was there. 

 

I can't find anything in HC3.  There is the Console and you can see the ZWave events.  But I cant find where I can see device activity.   I can see power usage in the Settings->Device. but only if energy used is turned on.  And by default, it is not turned on for many devices.  I can turn it on now, but it doesnt help me retrospectively.

 

The issues:  This morning the fireplace was on.  We did not turn it on.  I had a look at Alexa logs, and it didn't turn it on.  If I could see when it was turned on, I could perhaps track down how it happened.

 

I used to have problems galore in HC2, device settings changing, devices unregistering themselves, wrong device activating etc.  I was led to believe that HC3 would solve this and that my problem was multiple devices registered using the same ID, AND Zwave messages getting corrupted.  I re-registered every device before moving to HC3.  I am hoping its not the wrong device activating because zwave messages are still getting corrupted.  Especially since I am selling the house and in NZ, at least it goes with a warranty!!!

The history panel?. The watch in the left margin of the Web dashboard...

Would that help you track it down?

    Its very strange. 

    • I used Alexa to turn the fire on and off. 
    • Then tweaked the filters to get the minimum number of entries, but still including the fire.
    • I than ran it from the 8th to the 9th of this month - no entries.
    • From Alexa logs, I can see that my wife turned it off at 7:16am on the 9th, but I cant find that it in the history
    • And I know when I went to sleep at 2am, it was off, but I cant find any entry of it turning on between 2am and 8am
    • In fact I cant find any entry at all, for the fire for the last week.  There is history for other devices.

    Any suggestions from anyone
