Did you enable the correct protocol? (the Byron SX protocol on the RFXcomm according to the first post).

Re: Cannot sound the alarm on my KD101 smoke detector

Sorry, no fix yet. Still waiting for help...
BTW: I purchased the Action doorbell as an 'alarm', works quite well (but off course not as loud as the smoke detectors).

Cannot sound the alarm on my KD101 smoke detector

I have a two KD101 smoke detectors (brand is 'Chacon'). One shows up in Domoticz, I added it in the Settings>Devices as 'smoke detector 1' a long while ago (but I can see the 'last seen' date is still being updated). If I press the button on this smokedetector in the tab Switches, it will switch to ...

Re: Select Plus Doorbell

I bought the SelectPlus doorbell at Action last week. I cannot get Domoticz to learn the bell either. If there is a solution, please let me know (I'll continue to search too and post here if I find anything). I'm on domoticz 3.8153 EDIT: I just found http://www.domoticz.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=192...

Re: Switch still gives 30V when switched off

@devros I see this with both the expensive Kaku and the cheap action switches. That's why it confuses me.

Re: Switch still gives 30V when switched off

But it should NOT be the case that there is a Voltage difference when turned off, right? Neither a current (even a small one) when a bulb is attached.
I was in doubt because I saw the same behaviour in both devices.

Re: Switch still gives 30V when switched off

I measured this by directly putting my multimeter into the holes of the socket, without a light. This does not change anything right: there is a voltage difference between the two holes, so as soon as you connect a wire (or a light) between them, there will be a current. Very strange that I have thi...

Switch still gives 30V when switched off

When I turn off my switch, it still gives a bit of current. While I expect the voltage to be zero. I noticed this because one of my lights (with candle-style bulbs) was shimmering when it should be off. I set out to investigate, and found that: - if the switch is turned on, it gives 230V (as expecte...

Re: variable not updated correctly

Ah, thanks for pointing out my integer-mistake, and as mentioned I'm just beginning with programming so things could probably increase too! I was puzzeled by the fact that in some runs of then script the variable is updated, but on others not. Looking at the value at the beginning of the script-run:...

Re: [137] Send code more then once

UPDATE: I used dzVents to write this little script. So everytime an 'On' of 'Off' command is sent to the selected devices it is repeated 5 times, to ensure it reaches the device: local attempts = 5 return { active = true, on = { devices = { 46, 85 } -- add the list of devices you want to boost here ...

Re: variable not updated correctly

Note that the code example says:
'if (domoticz.data.counter = 5) then '
This should be
'if (domoticz.data.counter == 5) then'
right?

Re: variable not updated correctly

Thanks for pointing that out. The documentation is very extensive & I am not an experienced programmer, so I tend to read only the parts I know I need, missing the unknown unknowns... I still don't understand how my variable can be sometimes updated (instead of never or always , but that's probably ...

Re: Tip: Cheap wireless doorbell from Action

Thanks for sharing! This Action doorbell works for me to. I have not looked into un-pairing the doorbell and the chime, would be nice to be able to use the doorbell as a remote-control for other domoticz actions.

Below is a script that will update the variable BurstSwitch sometimes, but not always. Who can help me figure out what is wrong? I made this dzVent (I copied only the 'execute' part): execute = function(domoticz, roomSwitch) if (roomSwitch.state == 'On') then domoticz.log('--------------------------...

Re: DZvents script gives error 'attempt to index field 'devices' (a function value)'

I thought I was using the newest manual. In a forumpost I found I also saw a 'newer version' mentioned, but when I searched I found the manual I was already using... Or maybe I just didn't spot the differences For others: this seems to be the most recent for DZvents: http://www.domoticz.com/wiki/DzV...

DZvents script gives error 'attempt to index field 'devices' (a function value)'

I tried to write a very simple script in dzEvents, using the web interface of Domoticz. My scripts writes a message to the log ánd turns on a switch (the same switch that triggered the action, but that is irrelevant as far as I can tell). return { active = true, on = { devices = { 85 -- this is a sw...
