Re: Script to restart Domoticz if it crashes

Earlier I reported on some 'difficulties' with the crash-recovery-script. Sometimes a planned reboot completely fails, and that is easy to see, because Domoticz stops, and the Raspberry needs manual help for restart. But sometimes the reboot-failure is only 'half' as demonstrated in this graph. pit...

Re: Extra costs for P1 meter.

The only advantage you get by inclusion of tariffs etc. inside Domoticz, (imho) is that you may get financial information and related nice graphs besides the insertion of tariffs, without additional personal effort . 'Universal' solution is that your read-out the Smart meter by means of Domoticz and...

Remote Control of KAKU as command input

;-) Sometimes an idea/question just pops up, but the answer remains hidden. I have a KAKU-set with 3 Switch Units and 1 Remote Control Unit. The Remote Control Unit has 5 command sets On&Off for A, B, C and D, and All. The obvious application is to use A, B and C for On&Off for the 3 switches. Is it...

Re: Rain info 'too accurate'

Raingauges are used for measuring precipitation ;-) That is not only the water from showers, but also the water coming from drizzle, fog and dew, and to 'catch' that level of precipitation as a function of time , a resolution of 0.1mm becomes meaningful. More resolution generally is not meaningful, ...

Re: Thermometer

Do you already have a router or gateway with WiFi @2,4GHz? Then application of ESP8266&ESPEasy is most easy, in combination with 1 Domoticz on a Raspberry. The ESP8266es use the WiFi for communication. Connect your Raspberry to the Wifi-router (dependent on type, either by cable, or by WiFi as well)...

Re: DS18b20 and long wire : how to set up a switched star network ?

IMHO, DS18B20 operates best in a chain/bus configuration, not a star-configuration: see the datasheet . 'Star' can be done, but it is not according to design. Perhaps for your application it is an option to make a chain per floor with a related processor per floor (like bbqkees suggests), and then l...

Custom Graph: fixed colours instead of variation

Probably applicable for all Domoticz-versions having custom-graph for temperatures Each time I make a new custom-graph I am surprised by a new set of colours. I have not figured out which system/mechanism is the base of the colour-selection. That variation of colours makes it (more) difficult to ex...

@Curious

My remark refers to seeing

drwx-wx--T
A 'normal/simple' folder or file will have a property-string with rwx-combinations.

Re: owner crontab

Looking at the output for ls -l in /var/spool/cron, agree with Janni that 'properties' are definitely not normal in that folder.

Code: Select all

[email protected]:/var/spool/cron$ ls -l
total 4

Re: owner crontab

If I look in /var/spool/cron at my Raspberries, I see 'root' as owner for that folder.

Difference of owner causes problems:
see also this disccusion (and similar) at StackOverflow.

Name 'pi' for that file relative to owner 'pi' is confusing.

Re: Script to restart Domoticz if it crashes

Really a pain-in-the-ass if a 'counter-measure' is not reliable. Besides a 'user' cron with more lines, in the 'sudo' cron I put a simple, single line for periodic reboot, but apparently even that does not work. Even worse, sometimes I see that after the ordered reboot the applications/scripts do no...

Re: Reading XML with LUA?

;-) A script that runs without errors is always nice!

Re: Weather station

'PC' can also be a Raspberry or comparable processor.
E.g. the console of PWS type TFA_Nexus has an USB-interface and you can connect it and read-out with Domoticz-on-Raspberry: use TE923 as setting under Hardware. TE923 is a generally applied USB-interfaceformat for many PWSes.

Re: Weather station

Most weather stations have an 'inside'-sensor' for temperature, humidity and pressure. Some have that as part of the console, other as separate, wireless sensor at 433MHz or 868MHz, or as a combination of console & separate sensor. In the first and latter case the console's USB-interface (or similar...
