I can report I have this plugin working on a VeraPlus with the latest UI7 with the following controller:
IC-W1-2.3.4250

I don't use it for much other than my one scene "Goose Attack" that turns on the backyard sprinkler for 2 mins when I  fire it off via Alexa.  Naturally the stupid geese just look at the water spraying and proceed to poop all over my yard. Can't fault a-lurker for that though. :)

Thanks again for the great plugin.

@a-lurker

Is there any chance that irrigation caddy plugin can be visible in Imperihome in dashboard, because currently it is not possible to control irrigation in Imperihome?

I dont't use Imperihome but I'm pretty sure the Imperihome developer would have to enable it in their app.

I've been getting peppered with this same question for my plugins. Apparently a lot of ImperiHome fans out there. I found this, and have implemented it for two plugins so far with no issues--easy to do.

Just an FYI.  This plugin does not install in openLuup directly from the ALtApp store.  The installation does download all required files, however, you have to manually install the plugin from there.....

Mmm - not sure why this would be. I'll refer it @akbooer.

This is because the configuration data was incorrectly entered - there was no specified device file, and the implementation file pointed to the D_xxx.xml file!

I've fixed it in the AltAppStore database.

Thanks for that. Sounds like I shoved the D_xxx.xml file into the implementation file hole - should the lack of a D_xxx.xml file be allowed. But definitely my bad.

In Vera I have never specified the implementation file when creating/installing a plugin. This assumes the D_xxx.xml file mentions the implementation file internally, which is how I normally set up a plugin. Not sure what the UPnP spec says on this matter. Does the store require both to be specified?

Also @Buxton installed the irrigation plugin but the download count still says zero - are the counters working OK? Most say zero and I'm not convinced that's true - except for my plugins  :o

Tricky questions.

AltAppStore was a joint effort.  @Vosmont wrote the database, @amg0 the web UI, and I did the plugin.  So the issues you raise are mostly outside of my expertise area.

Anyway, it's fixed now for this plugin.

It's great to see all this cooperation, producing good outcomes. I'm happy to support that by making my plugins available on the appstore. When I get around to it, I'll add the Broadlink MK2 plugin.

That would be great - the more the merrier!  Thanks.

Hi,

I created this https://github.com/reneboer/openLuup-ImperiHome to get ImperiHome linked with openLuup. It supports all standard types of devices and if you would set includeVeraBridge to true you could even remove your Vera(s) and do all via openLuup. It is also fairly simple to add support for any plugin. To access local is simple, but also remote is possible as you can read in the instructions.

Ooh, that looks nice.  Perhaps you should start a thread under openLuup and I can make it sticky?

Hats off to you for using the WSAPI interface.  It certainly makes adding server functionality like this relatively easy.

Hi akbooer,

I added a topic to your openLuup board http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/topic,80039.msg379914.html#msg379914, but I cannot make it sticky. You can if you want to.
