Google Home / Re: Google Home Integration
« Last post by sefocuher on Today at 04:24:41 am »
Hi at all!

after contact with vera support i have information about avancement to google home integration.

This is her response :
Although with some delays, GH development is in full swing and we will make some announcements hopefully this summer.
We had our focus on the remaining regions for Alexa and the update to Amazon V3 API, and since this is now done, we are now focusing on Google Home.

If it can be help to expect.
USB RFXtrx Transceiver Plugin / Re: A plugin update

Tinman, can you please help to troubleshooting the BinaryLight switch with new plugin version?
I am using Livolo switch for the home lights.

Initially in 1.31 plugin version it works pretty well. However after loading the 4.0 version I am getting below error.

Code: [Select]
JobHandler_LuaUPnP::HandleActionRequest device: 344 service: urn:upnp-org:serviceId:SwitchPower1 action: SetTarget <0x6f685520>

Can you please help to check the issue. I have checked the D_ and S_ files, especially S_SwitchPower and it is all OK. Can you please to check the main lua file for changes?

I read your awesome post on all the different platforms you tested on the ST forum. Very insightful though you seem to have put the Home assistant stability ranking quite low while I have mine set all the way at the top (I maybe misled because I am not using Z-wave on my instance). I too have tested a few of them now and though maybe not as extensively as you have, I would rank the vera dead last and very far below all the others.

@undertoe's setup is quite awesome. I am just a bit concerned about the zwave device support. I may have some unsupported devices by openzwave which would prevent my migration.

I am very happy with openLuup as a master controller and plugin hubs with the addition of Home Assistant as an additional API bridge for integrations. The last part to replace the vera completely is the zwave/zigbee radio with the right amount of device support. Thinking through it, the ideal box would be a small board like a rPi with an external SSD storage and a zw to decrease SD card wear with the right interface (API).


Home Assistant/Openzwave: Hearing concerns about device support for some devices.
Zway/ Very finicky to install if you don't have a rPi but has openLuup plugin. Also needs a license.
OpenHab: Really don't like the interface and I am unsure about the device support.
Thank you. I completely missed that.
According to the comments, the zwave plus sensor doesn't support the external sensor even though it still has the header block.

The monoprice page has similar comments. It looks like they used the same board as the non-plus but the new firmware or ZWave Plus chip doesn't support the external switch.

Try to find a non plus version of the sensor for your use. Or splice into the magnetic switch contacts.

Thanks for the explanation on how you can do sequences with HS, it's not as straightforward as PLEG which is the only reason why I've hung onto Vera for this long.

Like I said, there is the easy trigger plug in that gives you a nice gui to create schedules and then you only have to add a condition "AND in schedule My schedule"

One further question is how can time schedules be carried over Midnight into the next day.
It's all straight forward with PLEG using a schedule and NOT (!).

The easy trigger way with a schedule set 9pm-3am
IF DeviceA has a value that just changed
And If DeviceA has a value equal to x
And if DeviceB has a value equal to y
AND in schedule My schedule
OR IF DeviceC has a value that just changed
And If DeviceC has a value equal to q
And if DeviceD has a value equal to r
AND in schedule My schedule
THEN (do stuff)

The no plug in way with a schedule set 9pm-3am
IF DeviceA has a value that just changed
And If DeviceA has a value equal to x
And if DeviceB has a value equal to y
And time after 9pm
OR IF DeviceC has a value that just changed
And If DeviceC has a value equal to q
And if DeviceD has a value equal to r
And time after 9pm
OR IF DeviceA has a value that just changed
And If DeviceA has a value equal to x
And if DeviceB has a value equal to y
And time before 3am
OR IF DeviceC has a value that just changed
And If DeviceC has a value equal to q
And if DeviceD has a value equal to r
And time before 3am
THEN (do stuff)

Easy trigger is worth it if you use a lot of schedules and it has some other nice scenarios.

Btw, none of this is scripting. It is all gui menu options with drop downs. At most you are typing a value used in a condition test (ie temp <95).

Plugins & Plugin Development / Re: LIFX Plugin
« Last post by Majimus on June 23, 2018, 06:58:18 pm »
I've been playing around with this plugin a lot, it's working really well for me since 1.3. Is there a way that I can set the colour to a kelvin temperature though? I've tried messing about with the SetColor, SetColorRGB, and SetColorTemp but no joy (in the advanced scene builder). SetColorRGB seems to be the only one that works at all.

I also tried calling the script from the Luup portion of the scene but there doesn't seem to be a way that I can use that without changing the state of the lights (I want to keep them all on the same colour temp but not turn ones on that aren't on). I also couldn't see to get "kelvin:5000" to work in that in the colour position anyway even though the LIFX Docs seem to indicate that's the way to do it.

Is setting a Kelvin possible? If not is there a workaround such as reading the value when it is at the right setting and then calling that RGB colour in the scene?

In version 1.4 use SetColorTemp and the value is the numeric kelvin value within 2500-9000, I've also changed the UI controls(device_json is now "D_DimmableRGBLight1.json")  but that may not reflect in existing devices (bulbs and groups only), feel free to change it if you wish/dare.

SetColor is used by the sliders and has it's own esoteric format so once again...use SetColorTemp.

EDIT:  No, there still is no getColor at this time.
Upgrading / Re: Beta 7.0.27b (1036/3917/3918/3919)

2) With alarming frequency, clicking the "Advanced" tab will display the data for a completely different device from the one you are in. There is no warning of this, and no rhythm to it.

I'm seeing this in the latest non-beta release, at least to some degree. Many times a device name will change after visiting the Advanced section. The names are like "Zigbee Network". Very odd. So, this may have started partially in the last stable version.

EDIT: I'm now seeing icons change, too. My thermostat shows as a camera, etc.

Hi there...
Does anybody have any info about whether the Fibaro Heat Controller (TRV) is working now???
I mean both in general, as I understand a new Firmware was needed to have the TRV behaving correctly, and particularly in Vera?

Will be shopping for some TRVs before winter and the Fibaro Unit is very appealing...

Thank you
