Re: Heatmiser integration

Great work Adam!

It's worth noting this is for the new Heatmiser Neo system and not the older WiFi models.

Thanks

Re: Add electricity values

Not sure if this is any help as I think you're trying to add historic monthly data. But with my recent PiFace phototransistor counter setup. I found that the easy way to start an initial value reading was to temporary disable the PiFace hardware in settings and then using a JSON string to submit via...

Re: Using GPIO to measure energy

Hi GAEvakYD, Thanks for the circuit diagram. Can you tell me if this is correct in wiring the circuit on the PiFace? PiFace-LDR.png Also I don't have any of the BPW96B Phototransistor yet or a 7.7 Kilo Ohm resistor so I thought I'd try it with a Light Dependent Resistor GL5528 like these: http://www...

Re: Using GPIO to measure energy

Hey guys,

Is this the simple circuit diagram for the phototransistor (LDR) to PiFace?

Do you need a resistor?

Re: Using GPIO to measure energy

Hey guys, Glad I found this thread, must of missed it earlier while searching. After reading it seems that PiFace is the way forward to get counters to work easily with Domoticz. I have a few simple questions... Do you have a circuit diagram for counting pulses from an electric meter? My gas meter i...

Re: Script to restart Domoticz if it crashes

Just had another thought on this, you could probably do it much easier using:

sudo service domoticz.sh status

To check if it returns

"[FAIL] domoticz is not running ... failed!"

Script to restart Domoticz if it crashes

Hey guys, Thought I share a (very basic) script that I use to check if Domoticz has crashed (offline) and restart it, I have this setup on a cron job running every ten minutes. My script basically launches a Telnet session to Domoticz on port 8080, if it fails to connect it removes the 2 temporary D...

Re: LCD display domoticz

I've been doing some work in a house recently that has an iPad mounted in the wall.

They use an iPort.

It looks very professional.

It uses a special ribbon charging cable that gets powered remotely I think by Cat5 cable.

Re: ByronSX PIR

Hi guys, I thought my solution to turning these off could have been to make a simple "On Action" script that after 10 seconds sends a JSON URL to Domoticz with the off command. #!/bin/bash sleep 10 http://10.0.1.20:8080/json.htm?type=command¶m=switchlight&idx=108&switchcmd=Off However, it seems ...

ByronSX PIR

Hi guys, It seems over the past few days quite a few of us in the UK have gone out and bought lots of Siemens ByronSX PIR Chimes as they are very cheap! http://www.diy.com/nav/fix/electrical/door-bells-intercom/accessories/Siemens-Wirefree-Indoor-Pir-11348000?skuId=11858210 They work great with Domo...
