Lighting & Load Control / Re: Sonoff iFan02 control with Vera Plus?
« Last post by therealdb on August 15, 2018, 03:21:14 am »
I successfully used SONOTA in the past, not use if your device is supported

In case it's not supported, you'll need to flash it with wires.

You then will need to write a virtual device. Vera does not support fans directly, so you can decide to use a thermostat with fan as base, or a dimmer/roller shutter. In this case, you can use 0, 33, 66 and 100 to map to corresponding speed of the fan. Look at the forum, there's a sample for a virtual shutter device implementation and I think you can adapt it to your needs very easily.

I've found something: MultiString.
By far the best (only) way to do want I want?

Can this PI work in conjunction with a Ventstar T7850/T7900 Thermostat or is another PI needed?

I would really need to know more about what you are trying to do.

Looks like I had notifications off on this thread. Anyway, I am only using this currently for full up or full down control. I haven't looked into doing a partial as that's per window vs per scene. The scene method was a lot easier to get going, and I suppose you could create a bunch of scenes for individual windows, perhaps at various heights too.

I'll poke around more with this in a few days hopefully.
Lighting & Load Control / GoControl LB65R6Z and Halo RL56 Recessed LED
« Last post by bigpal on August 14, 2018, 07:24:50 pm »
I've been using Vera for five years, but I haven't been to this board in a while because I haven't changed anything. I recently did a remodel and did a complete Z-Wave install and went with Veraplus, again. I need to control some recessed lights independently from the switch, so a few lights caught my eye.

Halo Recessed RL56 - (Zigbee)
Very nice, you can dim and control color temperature. I paired it with the Vera (latest firmware) and it didn't even come close to configuring the light. I uninstalled it and after doing so, the Vera completely died and I had to restore from a backup.

GoControl LB65R6Z - (Z-Wave)
Only 650 lumens, but dimmable, and would serve my purpose with 2700K warm white. Vera can add it as a dimmer, but can't configure or even contact the device. I have reset the light and paired it probably 9-10 times.

Anyone have experience with either of these, and any idea from Vera folks when support will be added?

I've been waiting 4 days for vera support to tell me what the fix is.   Can anyone post the fix here?  I too have the PIR-ZWAVE2.5-ECO.

The aeotec z-stick has an embedded battery and application specifically for inclusions. You have to setup the secure class key on the stick using a windows app (the backup software). You can then unplug the stick and go include devices wherever you want. A short push of the include button start a non secure inclusion. A long push (red flashing) starts a secure inclusion.

Can you unplug the Z-Stick and do secure includes or does that have to be done from within the main application. I'm getting ready to move my locks to HA and I'm using a Z-Stick. I love this thing...
ALTHue / Question on ROOMs ?
« Last post by cokeman on August 14, 2018, 05:29:09 pm »

just set this up, using a Rasp PI with diyHue, that runs with my IKEA tr?dfri. works like a charm.

I see all my bulbs and I can control them. but I don't seen any rooms (I do in the Hue App on my phone). Do I have to adjust every bulb in sceens, or is there a way to turn on a room like in the IKEA or Philips HUE app ?

e.g. in my bathroom I have 4 bulbs, would be nice to turn on the room, and not bulb 1 and 2 and ...

When looking in the "HUE DATA" it looks like the information it there

      "type": "Room",
      "name": "kitchen counter",
      "class": "Living room",
      "state": {
        "any_on": false,
        "all_on": false
