Thanks Russ. That worked. I was trying various commands like trying to run "nano" and it didn't pop-up so figured there were bigger issues at play. Since I am not running in an X environment, I'm assuming the commands run in a random virtual console? I was running foreground to get visibility and troubleshooting from the logs. I just modified the commands.json line for this to background and started the daemon and this also worked. Not a lot of documentation for using triggercmd via command line (ssh) and most is focused on the GUI so fumbling may way around :). Thanks again for the reply. Now that I know commands are running correctly, I'll play around with the scripts I want to run. Great program BTW :D
