Re: Power Interupted

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I do use a UPS on my main computer and server so I don't have any problems there. I was hoping that there was a simpler, under $10 little switch device that one could put in the power line. Sort of like a reverse fuse that breaks the connection when there is a drop in power.

Power Interupted

We had a storm the other day, the power went off but not cleanly. For several seconds the power flickered, came on, off several times. The result... two Raspberry Pis with corrupted memory cards. I'm now having to rebuild my Domoticz system from scratch, again. And yes I did have an image of the car...

Re: Blockly examples

Thanks StanHD, as you suggested I created a 'Manual On' switch which is on between 9pm and 7am and added it to the script. Testing it now but I think it should work for what I need.

Re: Blockly examples

This is a simple script to turn off a light when my wife leaves and back on when she returns. This works fine except at the end of the day when we want to turn it off manually it comes right back on. I had thought that the script would only be triggered upon the cell phones' change of state but appa...

Physical Wireless Control Board

I have salvaged a 1990 custom keyboard from a banking center. It has 40 really nice mechanical keys individually set in a metal frame. The key-tops are removable so one could print custom labels. I'm wondering if I could use this as a control board for my home automation system. I know you can conne...

Re: Howto: Raspberry Pi GPIO 433MHz Remote Sockets

I am so close to getting this working but am stuck at the last hurdle. I have a Etekcity 5 outlet set, raspi B+, 433mhz receiver and transmitter and set it up with the instructions https://timleland.com/wireless-power-outlets/comment-page-13/#comments . That works great. Installed domoticz and resto...

Rpi Rfx433 not working with Domoticz

I have a working Domoticz setup on a Raspberry Pi B+ with a MySensors serial controller. I wanted to add rfx433 capability to control some Etekcity remote outlets. I used the instructions from this https://timleland.com/wireless-power-outlets/ to get it working. And it does work from the command lin...
