Amazon Alexa / Re: Device is not responding
« Last post by rjayyyy on October 23, 2018, 09:40:28 am »
old thread I know, anyone got an answer to this one?

I see this issue and up until now haven't really pushed forward with the Alexa integration for that reason but I have Alexa in enough places around the house that it would be useful to revisit.

Plugins & Plugin Development / Re: Plugin: DelayLight
« Last post by sebby on October 23, 2018, 09:15:14 am »
is there a way to synchronize 3 lights on 3 circuits with this plugin?  I've been racking my brain trying to figure this one out, but haven't been able to.  Here is my scenario:
I have lights at the top deck, middle deck, and floor level and they are all on independent circuits.  what i want is for all 3 circuits to come on when any one of them turns on (pretty easy with DelayLight), but what i am having an issue with is turning them off when any one of them is turned off.  When one light comes on, the others turn on as planed, but since now they all have power, turning one off does not turn the others off. 

No biggie if this is not the tool for that, i can code it in Lua if necessary, but just wanted to check

So i found the answer to my own question.  The license is $5 per platform, meaning iOS, Android, or desktop.  The license is a one-time fee.

If you're interested in nicer notifications than what Vera offers natively, I would suggest looking into VeraAlerts + Pushover.

A nice feature would be if Vera allowed us to customize the device and scene notification messages to our own liking, but this works for now.

Thanks for the info, that does sound pretty easy.

Does it have integrations for the following?  This is what I use IFTTT for now...

  • WeMo Insigh Plugs - I tried the Vera plugin with updated code from the forums, but still could not get this to work in Vera.  I can see the plugs but can only turn them on, not off, the status never changes, and I cannot change them from inside the iOS app.
  • TP-Link smart switches
  • Chinese Smart plugs that use the Smart Life or Tuya apps
Scene Scripting / Re: Please help linking functions together
« Last post by reneboer on October 23, 2018, 05:10:16 am »

You would add a line like this at the end of your example to have the scene continue if all three conditions are true.
Code: [Select]
return (checkTime() and checkHum() and checkAway())
If you need different condition state it could read.
Code: [Select]
if  (checkTime() and (checkHum() or checkAway())) then
  return false
  return true

Have fun.

Cheers Rene

I know that Alexa will support sensors and it's new "Guard" feature. We have that on our tabs as well
The same thing for GH, it will be launched with a limited number of devices and we will build on top of that.

He Replied to me again today explaining why the Vera is behaving like it is as he has limited control and visibility of its control API, he is continuing to investigate and will get back to me, as least he seems to be doing something 🤔
I?ll let you know if we have any progress.
I think after the last firmware update, i cant control my spirit through vera, my danfoss works fine... but if i send a http command to control the spirit it works. By that i mean that the vera shows me the new value, but the spirit dosent change, but it works if i send a http sommand with the value. Hope that makes sense :-)

I don't see any issue on the newest firmware (1.7.4001 on Plus) so it's probably not the problem with firmware.
You may try sending "confirgure node right now" command and see if it helps
I done that, still no control through vera (change of temperature or using scenes) it did work before, now the only way i can change is through my node-red by sending a URL, then the thermostat is changing the temperature

I ordered the optoisolator off eBay... so they and the Zuno are on the way... I?ll swing through Jaycar for some other bits and pieces when they get here.

Vacation & Rental / Lights
« Last post by lmtslc on October 22, 2018, 08:08:07 pm »
I have successfully set up my door locks for my 2 vacation rentals. I have schlage locks that have keypads for guests to key in their code to unlock doors.
Now I am trying to set up to be able to turn on/off porch lights remotely. The light switches are 3 way switches. Any suggestions on what brand/model pairs well with Vera?
