Alarm not triggering?

  • I have a few sensors that i would like to trigger a motor controller.
    heres an overview of my setup:
    i have a raspberry pi running mycontroller connected through my serial gateway on /dev/ACM0
    i have a motor controller to control blinds that register as S_COVER.
    i have a light sensor.

    when the light sensor gets to say 60% for example, i would like to trigger the S_COVER to open. so i go into action board > my led sensor > alarms > add
    but it will never trip. my sensor is reading data. it will say 61 percent for example but never trip. What am i missing?

    @Connor-Rigby What is the notification type are you using?

    You should use send payload option and you should point out S_COVER sensor.
    Can you elaborate bit more about alarm conditions or it will be good if you put screenshot of alarm definitions.
    Which version of MyController are you using?

    this is my alarm set up.
    right now my sensor reports tripped or untripped. for example i want it to activate the motor down when tripped.
    im using the latest version but ive tried with alpha 5 also to no avail.
