Re: Ping a device

Arping also supports setting a time-out. Have a look at the presence detection script.

Allow more things to be in the main menu

Currently it's possible to choose a few things that can be placed in the main menu at the top. For example, floorplans can be added by marking a checkbox under settings.

I would really love it if Events could also be added to this checkbox list.

Re: Multi value custom sensor

Couldn't groups kind of fullfill this idea? I recently created a wireframe for a usability redesign. https://www.domoticz.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=16255 In it I still had devices as horizontal blocks. But I now think it would be way easier if anything on the dashboard can scale arbitrairily in ...

Re: Energy, water and gas meter

You could also try creating your own arduino-based MySensors pulse counter. It would cost your about 10 euros in materials to create the gateway and a wireless sensor.

Re: MQTT + Domoticz

For anyone finding this: the Beta of Domotics supports normal MQTT messages. If you want to use MQTT, use the Domoticz Beta.

Re: Plugin request / questions

@remb0 It might be a better idea to have other software that bridges those devices to MQTT. Then they can work with any home automation that supports MQTT. Standards FTW! An example is the recently developed script that bridges RFLink to MQTT. https://github.com/Phileep/rflink-to-mqtt So in this cas...

Re: Angular2 Service and Components for Domoticz

I was thinking it might be good to organize a hackathon, maybe on a sunday afternoon in april, to overhaul the Domoticz front-end. If you're interested in that, send me a private message.

Re: So I redesigned Domoticz from a usability perspective..

I agree wholly, although so far I purposefully didn't want to go too far overboard. I've added a thing-detail page that hints at this functionality.

So I redesigned Domoticz from a usability perspective..

As I learnt more about Domoticz, I found that lots of people like me had trouble with the current user experience. As a UX designer I decided to invest some time into thinking about how the experience could be improved. The goals were: - Make it more tablet and beginner friendly. - Bring Domoticz st...

Re: Geofence for Domoticz

Interesting. I tried the app again, but it doesn't seem to offer an option that only uses cell-towers? And it still requires location permission when I install it. Are you planning on making a new app that works with celltowers only by any chance? I recently started using an Android app called WiFiT...

I'm just curious about all the steps on Synology, from beginning till end. Probably something like: - Get access...

Non-Intrusive Load Monitoring through Domoticz?

Internet connected smart meters share your total electricity usage with your power company. What most people don't realize is that by tracking this simple variable over time, energy companies can actually deduce which devices you own and use. It's called "Non-instrusive Load Monitoring" or "Power Di...

Re: Geofence for Domoticz

While I can respect that, I don't agree that this this is asking to re-create Google's system. The whole point of my proposal is that it is relatively simple. - It just uses cell towers. - It doesn't even look at their signal strength. It just counts the amount of 'home' ones that are around.
