Can you explain the purpose and use of the DMX status advisory message? I'd like to understand it better to see if maybe there is a better solution we can propose.

Simon is correct in that once the messages are collected, they are purged and the message count = 0, UNLESS the condition occurs again and then a new status message gets queued up. One could implement a sensor that generates a status message every time the temperature changes by 1/10th of a degree, but in most situations that would just be viewed as noise and waste the network bandwidth.

At least as an advisory a controller can choose to not collect it, but it would be useful to understand your use case.
