Countdown Timer with Elk Zone
Hi there

Just wondering what would be the simplest, most efficient way of getting a notification on my phone every x minutes when an Elk zone is open? I am using Autoremote and Tasker. I can send commands from CQC to Autoremote which are executed by Tasker, which works nicely.

What would be the best way to filter triggers to get this going? TIA
You mean when any zone is opened, or a specific one?

A specific one. Garage door in this case
A fairly simple scenario, given that it's only happening on the scale of minutes, is to just set up a scheduled event that runs once every X minutes. Have it check the state of that zone and do what you want if it's open. It does run all the time, but the overhead is fairly low given that it's a pretty small action and will not do anything most of the time but check the zone and stop if if it's secure and (presumably) the scheduled minutes will be 30 or more (given that otherwise you'd send yourself a lot of e-mails.)
