execute.command("v1D ON");
System.out.println("lights on at front door rule");

and it dosent seem to work
can anyone see anytrhing wrong
thanks in advance

I suppose this is only part of the rules file and you have some declaration like

global org.openremote.controller.statuscache.CommandFacade execute;
at the top.

I have tested this rule and it's working fine for me.

Take a look at the logs when syncrhonizing the controller and see if any error gets reported when the rules are compiled.
If there is an error in the rules (anywhere in the rules), none of them will work.

Also double check that the command name is correct. But in that case, you should at least see the System.out output.

dont know what i did but today it worked is the command name case sensitive??

an other question is it posible to have an event go for a set period of time then stop .like using date time to get "is night " then turn lights on then after say 2 hours turn lights off??

thanks for your help

Yes, command names are case sensitive.

Also at this stage, there is no verification that command names are unique and the way they're exposed in rules does not take their device into account (it does not act as a name space), so you can easily end up with many 'power on' commands and that would be an issue for calling them from rules.

The timer function allows an initial delay (2h) to be set when a rule evaluates to true: Designer 2.0 - Controller Rules. This might work for your use case.
