Freedomotic and its plugins send events when anything relevant happens.
Any event is sent on a messaging channel. A channel address is a simple

You can subscribe an event channel from a trigger which is a filter of events.
For example if your event is
an object changed state you can filter it using a trigger
a light in the kitchen changed its powered state.
Freedomotic events have a set of standard properties plus a list of properties related to the specific event.
The following parameters are common to all events and can be intercepted and filtered by any trigger:
|date.dayname||eg: Sunday||English name of the day in which the event is throwed|
|date.day||eg: 4 for Thursday||The day number in which the event is throwed|
|date.month||eg: October||The month name in which the event is throwed|
|date.year||eg: 2016||The year number in which the event is throwed|
|time.hour||eg: 0-23||The hour number in 24h format in which the event is throwed|
|time.minute||eg: 0-59||The minute of the current hour in which the event is throwed|
|time.second||eg: 0-59||The second of the current minute in which the event is throwed|
