Upgrading / Re: Beta Version 7.0.26b (1.7.1026/1.7.3754/1.7.3755/1.7.3760)
« Last post by rgmessick on April 20, 2018, 01:27:18 pm »
Just updated yesterday.  Everything seemed to go well except after trying to verify the updated version on the firmware screen I got a message stating that the memory was full.  Everything went downhill from there and I was getting errors like "Error in Lua code in scenes and events" at the top of the UI.  I was no longer able to remotely access the unit or save any scenes or settings.  Turns out the memory on the unit was 98% full.  Called tech support and they were able to fix the issue by deleting the z-wave firmware files from other countries that were included in the update to release some memory.  Now I'm down to 81% full memory and everything is working again.  I email the beta feedback but just wanted to post my finding here in case anyone else had the same issue with the lates beta release.  Great experience with support and happy they were able to answer my call right away and resolve the issue.  These are beta after all and am very happy that they are willing to help resolve these issues right away.

I have to do the same thing after every upgrade. Before upgrading the device was at 71%, after upgrading 92% (I think), and after removing the other country's z-wave firmware was back down to 73%.

Hi @rigapapa,

I wanted to know if I could use your code to build a plugin for rainmachine.  I'd like to use the structure but leveraging Rainmachine's api.

For awhile I named mine "X42"  With the x representing ten.  Shorthand for "10-42"  Police 10 code for residence.

Now I just go with the city the vera unit is in.  (I have two). 

Boring.

Scene Scripting / Re: reading temperature from Virtual Outdoor Temperature Plugin
« Last post by jchin on April 20, 2018, 12:31:04 pm »
Got it working ... here is the code I used:

Code: [Select]
local THERMOSTAT = 16 -- deviceID for Thermostat
local TEMP = 72 -- temperature to set
local HEATOFF = 65 -- temperature to set when outside is warm
local VOTD = 23 -- deviceID of Virtual Outdoor Temp
local TEMPwarm = 55 -- temperature outside considered warm

local OutdoorTemp = tonumber((luup.variable_get("urn:upnp-org:serviceId:TemperatureSensor1", "CurrentTemperature", VOTD)))
-- note the number of parentheses

if (OutdoorTemp < TEMPwarm) then
luup.call_action("urn:upnp-org:serviceId:TemperatureSetpoint1_Heat", "SetCurrentSetpoint", {NewCurrentSetpoint = TEMP}, THERMOSTAT)
else
luup.call_action("urn:upnp-org:serviceId:TemperatureSetpoint1_Heat", "SetCurrentSetpoint", {NewCurrentSetpoint = HEATOFF}, THERMOSTAT)
end

Has anyone used UI5 towards Fronius converter?
I'm still on Vera3, have a lot of devices, like the UI and everything works fine.

Lock, Motion & Security Control / Re: Zooz ZSE40 4-in-1 Sensor
« Last post by jchin on April 20, 2018, 11:52:54 am »
GOT IT WORKING.

1.  contacted Vera Support and enabled remote Customer Service access
2.  they checked a few things; I woke the device with paperclip, replaced batteries, etc. ... no luck
3.  a few days went by
4.  support requested then asked me to un-pair the device and re-pair it ...
- so I un-paired the sensor
- waited about 2 minutes
- re-pair the sensor BUT this time, instead of selecting Vision ZP3111-5, I selected "Generic Z-Wave device" (this might be the key to fixing it)
- it paired to the controller (and I left it at default settings, no added attributes or sensitivity changes)
- waited about 2 minutes and the 4 sensors all showed up ... motion was still not detecting
- enabled notifications for motion just for the kicks of it
- waited another few minutes (maybe 15 minutes) ... and suddenly I got a motion notification from it

Do not have a clue what is different ... other than selecting "Generic Z-Wave device".

After an hour of it not showing any errors and staying connected, I went ahead and added back the seven attributes to the sensor:
1 - monitor only
2 - monitor only
3 - monitor only
4 - 1 byte HEX - value 5
5 - 1 byte HEX - value 1
6 - 1 byte HEX - value 4
7 - monitor only
(I did all 7 just to cover my base, in case I want to change something in the future)

I also changed the WakeUp Interval to 7200 seconds
with a Poll Interval of 1080 seconds (since I was told this number has to be less than WakeUp for changes to be sent to the sensor during its wakeup window),
all in hopes to save some battery life.

Poked the pinhole with a paperclip to wake the sensor up to get the new changes.
All went well.
NOTE: sensor was about 3 feet from the controller the entire time.

So far so good ... 2 hours later still working.
And my fingers are crossed that this Monoprice 4-in-1 sensor will continue to work like the previous ones I've installed.

Lighting & Load Control / Re: Multi-Tap Scene triggering

I'm fairly sure all zwave plus switches now support instant status

It will depend on if your switch supports "Instant Status". I do not know if the ZWP-WD-100 switch does or not.

Otherwise, Vera will not know that a "tap" even occured until it next polls the switch, and would miss the fact that two taps occured.

As far as responding to two subsequent taps, you can do this with some simple LUA programming (assuming instant status).
