Ignore duplicates ???

Post by kamsvag » Mon Nov 14, 2016 4:20 pm

Ok, so I use eventGhost for my home automation and it works brilliant, however when the doorbell is pushed I get three to four entries in the log, wich casues as many pushbullets and ringings on my doorbell speaker.

How can I make eventGhost to ignore the trigger for say five seconds after it has recieved the first instance?

1) If you have a transceiver type RFXtrx or a TellStickDuo, the plugins supporting those both have settings that can help to avoid duplicated events

2) If not, you can make a configuration with other available stuff that can help. I will make a sample shortly
