Sorry, I don't have the inclination to delve deeply into the code you post. But in the first handful of lines I notice:

  • you don't use strict;
  • you don't use warnings;
  • you don't check the return status of your open(), e.g.
    open(CONFIG, "<homenet.actiontrigger.conf") or die "Can't open config file: $!";
I'd put those three things at the top of your "to do" list.

    OK, I'll try this first! I get a lot of errors on my variables now, so I'll look at these to correct them...
