Hello,

I would like to check if one plug device is offline.

Does anybody know how to do that in a rule ?

Thank you in advance

Christophe,


As far as I know there is no way to know a device is offline in a rule. Offline status is based on how many times the controller is not receiving wake up command from the device for the configured period of time, 1 time is yellow (warning), more than 1 time is red (offline). Zipato owes us offline notifications for a while...

Like usual ... Zipato promises a lot of features

You could try this maybe:

- Check the plug's current status in the Zipabox (on or off)

- Toggle its status

- Wait a bit

- Check whether its status was successfully toggled. If not, it's probably offline.


I used this method to check whether the power had been cut to the kitchen when I was experiencing an electrical problem.

Yes possible ... but not the very standard way

Thank you for your advice
