Possibility to get source of triggered event on Button (like in the timeline)?

Hi everyone,

is it possible to the get source of a triggered event on a button? In the timeline of the button I can see if “knx” triggered the event or if it was triggered by a user from the web?

I need this in a flow because knx does not support binary sensors. My workaround at the moment is, that I create a button with the group address and then map it to a virtual sensor button. This works pretty well and fast. The only problem I have is when someone presses this button via the web ui. Then the window is shown as open even if the knx didn’t send the signal.

I now want to do something like this in a flow:

Button Window 1 pressed AND source of pressed button is knx → set helper sensor to on.

Does anybody have an idea how to make this happen or where the data is saved so that I can use homeyscript for it? That would be really really helpful.

Here’s an example for a light:
The neat app Device Capabilities does the trick here

You can get the event source on a button with this flow, and create a flow + an advanced virtual device for every individual event.

You can save the data to excel or the likes, when you log it to Simple Log f.i., instead of to the timeline. There’s also a Google Sheets app
