Re: We give away a Yeelight Color RGBW for free!

Gotta be in it to win it!

I would hook it up with IFTTT so that it can notify me of deliveries.
Now if I already had one I could be notified of the delivery of this one :)

Re: 1 Hue light refuses to show in domoticz

Sorry I can't be of much help. Have you tried going to the settings page in Domoticz and hitting "Allow for 5 minutes"?

Re: 1 Hue light refuses to show in domoticz

Not sure if this will help but check the name of the light in Domoticz. Someone I know had a / in the name of one of his devices and it caused all kinds of problems.

Re: Door lock - how do you use them?

You are correct, though I automatically re-lock after one minute. At the same time I turn on green LED strips in the kitchen (where we spend most of our time) to show that the lock is open. I used to use push notifications but I prefer the subtlety of the LEDs. I also have "modes" for the house (hom...

Re: Door lock - how do you use them?

I use mine with presence detection. So if my wife's or my phone come home the door unlocks for us. The logic is not complicated particularly. There are several methods to determine if the phones are home - I use a script that runs on my router.The only time it is a (minor) issue is when there is an ...

Re: iMessage Notification

I'm sorry to open an old thread but there is not much conversation around iMessage on this forum. i am running Domoticz on OSX. I have created the iMessage.scpt and notify.sh and placed them both in my domoticz/scripts folder. My imessage.scpt is like this: on run argv tell application "Messages" to...

Re: homebridge-edomoticz Plugin

I had the same problem. Basically homebride doesn't recognised Domoticz Scenes. So obviously the workaround is to create a dummy switch that triggers the scene. So because these are switches, they either stay on or off. Homekit doesn't work with push on switches either. The way to get it to functio...

Re: homebridge-edomoticz Plugin

Hi all, I am having trouble with scenes in the Home and Eve apps. If I run a scene for example "Good Night" which in turn throws a switch in Domoticz, that is fine but if I try and run it again it does not respond. The only way to make it respond is to go into the Home app and toggle the scene to "O...

Your port to Domoticz looks wrong - should it not be 8080?

Re: Turn screen off on tablet with Domoticz switch.

Glad to be of help.
There may be other ways...perhaps using an ssh call to the tablet but i reckon it would over complicate things.

Re: Turn screen off on tablet with Domoticz switch.

I haven't used Android for years but IIRC it has power profiles.
If so you could set a profile for when on battery = screen off, when on mains power = screen always on.

then just have Domoticz toggle the plug socket that powers it?

Re: my first blockly

You can set a timer for sunset and sunrise on the device itself without using blockly. That wouldn't send you a notification though. Anyway, with your blockly you ask if time is greater than or equal to 1800 turn on the lamp - you only need the time to equal 1800 and the lamp will be on. If you real...
