6 March 2019: Version 3.8 is available in the MIOS app market, and available the ALTUI app market.

You can use the Update App in case the update was not automatic. If that fails try to force an update when you are on the same network as your Vera (i.e. this does not work remotely) enter this link in your web browser and put in your Vera's IP address. http://<your vera IP>/port_3480/data_request?id=action&serviceId=urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:HomeAutomationGateway1&action=CreatePlugin&PluginNum=8066&Version=37681

Make sure you refresh your browser after uploading the files.

You can find the Wiki with User Guide, Release notes and more details on https://github.com/reneboer/vera-Harmony-Hub/wiki. The source files are on https://github.com/reneboer/vera-Harmony-Hub in case you need them, but it is strongly advised to use the App markets to install.

The release notes moved to the Github wiki https://github.com/reneboer/vera-Harmony-Hub/wiki/Release-Notes

Limitation:
- As with most special plug ins, mobile apps like Vera Mobile or AutHomationHD have very limited support, ImperiHome does not show it at all.
- Configure one child device at a time. You Vera will reload after each change because JSON files get rewritten. Some patience is required.
- The plug in can only detect changes in the current Activity. Other actions like pressing a button on your remote are not communicated by
  the Hub and thus cannot trigger any events on the Vera. I.e. you cannot control your Vera using your remote.


Discussions that led to developing this plug in and about previous versions are at http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/topic,14928.0.html


Cheers Rene

Version 2.12 is now available in the ALTUI App Market. Pending approval in MiOS App Market.

Added support for the preset House Modes on the Dashboard. So you can start an activity and send device commands when the House mode is changed just like for Z-Wave devices.

  - When polling interval is configured, do not send a start activity command to the Hub when it is the same as the current activity.
  - In the settings Password field is of type password and thus not showing what you enter.

V2.17 Changes:
   - Native ALTUI support. Needs ALTUI 1.82 or later.
   - Use of luup.attr_get rather than accesing luup.devices directly where possible.

After updating this and ALTUI click the Reset button in ALTUI to cleanup the now obsolete plugin defintions the previous version of the Harmony plug-in created.

V2.19 Changes:
   - IP Address is now stored in normal variable, no longer in device IP attribute. This should fix issues with setting getting lost.
   - On upgrade the value from IP attribute is used as default.
   - Make sure Duration value does not get written as empty string as Windows App does not like that.

V2.20 Changes:
   - Support for "Only Poll when Home" option. When set the polling will hold in other House Modes as it is not useful and you can turn off
     the Harmony without getting error messages.
   - Much nicer looking on ALTUI
   - Some code clean up.

V3.0 a major overhaul and many enhancements and fixes.
- Allow activity names instead of activity ID to start activities. Add CurrentActivity variable to reflect.
- Allow device names instead of device ID to send commands to a device.
- Added change channel command.
- Added PowerOff command. (= StartActivity with activity ID -1)
- Added SetPolling command to close & re-open connection to Hub as required.
- Keep connection to Hub open using ws ping, rather then close after each command to keep receiving status data from Hub.
- Optimized winsocket code for just Hub use and minimized code.
- Store activities and devices config. Device commands with device instance. Only send getconfig if unknown or statedigest reports new config.
- Corrections for scenes advanced editor actions.
- Fixes for implemented actions.
- Changes to ALTUI_plugins.js for new lines added to config and fix for Command duration.

Note that is you use ALTUI an updated ALTUI_plugins.js is needed. Attached is a version you can with ALTUI v2.40.2501 until amg0 releases the changes.

V3.4
  - Fixed an issue for the StartingActivityID triggers.
  - Explicitly setting the Hue Lights device catagory_num and subcatagory_num. Seems no functional effect, just how Vera shows it
    when looking by Type.
  - Setting the Lamp model and manufacturer in the device Attributes rather than variables.
