Description

The trigger will fire when a power source's state changes. This change will occur when one of the power source's switches to AC/mains supply, to battery, goes off-line, or is disconnected.

There may be multiple power sources. The trigger can filter which power source's can trigger using the name field as a filter. By providing a previous and now state, the trigger can further filter the power source changes that initiate the trigger.

A trigger without either a before or now state, will trigger whenever the power source state changes. A trigger with one or both the before and now state, will trigger only when those values are matched by the changing power source's state.

Fields

now

New state of the power source.

before

Previous state of the power source.

filter

Power sources to monitor.
