    Fusion Brain "email output" problem

    Playing around with my Fusion Brain ver 4, I've used the Fusion Control Center Configurator to compare an input value with a reference. When the input goes above the reference, I have the output configured to send an email. The problem is, it continues to send emails as long as the input is larger than the output. Hence, LOTS of emails pile up. Is there a work around to limit the number of emails sent? Also, is there any way to send a text message instead of an email?

    Haven't done fusion brain work in awhile but you should be able to use a flag or a boolean or whatever the equivalent is on the device. You set it to true after the first email is sent and then don't send emails if its true next time around. Just remember to set the flag to false when the voltage drops under the reference.

    That would work for a one time message yes.

    Another way is to set the "minimum_delta_vote_time" to a large number. That way the email is only sent every "large number" milliseconds. So set it to something like every hour (3600000ms), and you get one every hour. Or per day or something like that.
