Issues with Creating a Routine?

How to Fix the Problem

Having trouble creating a Routine? If you are getting a 'Added Routine undefined' error then you are most likely given the Routine a name that is blocked by SimpleCommands. Try re-creating the Routine with a new name and that should resolve the issue nine times out of ten. If this doesn't resolve your problem, let us know!



Why does SimpleCommands not allow certain Routine names?

SimpleCommands communicates with your Items by sending specifically worded commands. For example, if you want to turn on a light with the name 'Bedroom', SimpleCommands sends a request saying "Bedroom on". The same logic applies to Routines. In order to avoid having a single request meaning different things SimpleCommands prevents users from naming their Routines the same thing as a command request. A common example of this is users trying to name their Routine 'Arm home' since that is a command you can send directly to your security devices through SimpleCommands.
