For an action to work, it is important to use the "Event" and "Action" columns. An event triggers an action. "Preconditions" and "Notification" columns are optional. Precondition works as a gateway to the event. The event cannot happen before the precondition is met. Without the precondition, the event will initiate an action every time it occurs.
A notification can be sent if the free@home system is connected to a myABB-LivingSpace account. A message can then be sent to an email account, as a push message to a smart phone or to the free@home Touch panel.
