Re: homebridge-edomoticz Plugin

I did understand. Thank you.

I think both ways would work. Now that I have it working, I don’t want to upset it again by changing!

Re: homebridge-edomoticz Plugin

But why you have to set different platform for any roomid? You can configure a plan in domoticz like "homebridge" and add in this plan only, and all, devices you want to have in Homebridge.. The reason I am using roomid is to control which accessories are available to Homebridge (via the Domoticz r...

Re: homebridge-edomoticz Plugin

Yes I removed the directories and re-added to HomeKit. I even changed the username and pin in config.json.

Re: homebridge-edomoticz Plugin

Is it possible, to have several sections in config.json to handle serveral rooms between domoticz and appl home or can I only use one section with one room? Thanks a lot. Yes. You should create rooms in Domoticz>Setup>More Options>Plans>Roomplan and add devices to those. You then need one entry for...

Re: Garden watering

Ah, got it! How about making a dummy switch that you turn on once a day with a timer (e.g. At sunset). Then you use a device script to catch the 'On', check your rain meter, increment the var if necessary. You can then either switch the dummy off in the script or have an auto off after some seconds ...

Re: Garden watering

(I think I understand you, but do post back if not!) If your conditional test is correct, you just need to say: regenteller = regenteller+1 If you need to use another variable to increase the value of regenteller, you need to ensure that you round up or down so that it's also an integer: regenteller...

Re: Lua PIR problem - Switching off too early

Well that's another strange thing: the Friedland one (which I am concentrating on) never seems to go 'On' so far as domoticz is concerned - it's just updating the 'Last Seen', but it doesn't do that when it's sleeping. I am not keen to start using Fibaro as I don't have z-wave and don't really want ...

Re: Lua PIR problem - Switching off too early

Sorry for the delay in responding. I have reached the conclusion that the problem I am having is nothing to do with the scripts, but with the PIRs I have tried to detect continuous movement. The first one, Philips Hue Motion detector, was too 'clever' and seemed to cache the last movement (last upda...

Lua PIR problem - Switching off too early

Hi I have a PIR PIRCeiling and a script script_device_PIRCeiling.lua that should be updating a user variable TIMERCeiling to the value of a var ceilingTimer each time it switches to 'On'. If the switch Ceiling is not already 'On', it should switch it on. commandArray={} ceilingTimer=6 if (deviceChan...

Re: Python Works at Command Line Not in Domoticz

I believe I have finally solved the problem - not so that the script runs as it should, but it will do for now:- The script reads a file named registry.kv which supplies a dictionary of device names and addresses. I tried calling the .py from Lua and diverting stdout to a file. There I found that th...

Re: Python Works at Command Line Not in Domoticz

@Lorccan, Did you correctly specify the script in the on and off action fields? It should be something like: script:///home/pi/domoticz/scripts/script.py param1 param2 param3 Notice the three /// if you specify the full path. I've seen others reporting it should be two, but this probably depends on...

Re: Python Works at Command Line Not in Domoticz

This is it. As you can see it loads the energenie module (which is available at https://github.com/whaleygeek/pyenergenie ) and this drives a dedicated transceiver hat on the RPi.

Sorry for slow response - I didn't get notification of replies. I am running on an RPi under Raspbian - so, yes *nix - and I did already have the hashbangs in place.

Python Works at Command Line Not in Domoticz

I have python script that works fine at the command line. However I call it in Domoticz (either ON|OFF on a dummy switch, or calling from a shell script or from a Lua script) it will not work and returns an error 256. I suspect that it's because the script is loading a non-standard module that can't...

Energenie Mi|Home Single Wall Switch MIH0026

Does anyone know how to get this working with Domoticz via Rfxtrx433e please? I have tried putting into pairing mode and adding a manual switch, but the only Type it will respond to is Energenie 5-gang. Once I have it paired I can switch on and off exactly once and it stops responding! I think I hav...

Re: Delay between switches

Thanks for the fast reply. I forgot to mention that Switch 2 is relying on an os.execute call as it's talking directly to an amplifier, but I can get around that by creating a dummy switch as you suggest and call the os.execute when it is triggered.

Delay between switches

I am switching on 2 switches via a LUA script. Optimally, I would like to have a delay of ~6 seconds between them. I could do this via a Scene with an On Delay for the second switch, but I only need the delay if Switch 1 was initially OFF and then switched to ON by th script . (I can check the statu...
