Hmmm just removed the device (kodi) and dtgbot seems to have come alive, weird.

Strange.. You have exactly the same issue! That JSON should contain a RESULT section with more information.
What is that device exactly and which version of Domoticz are you running?
I have a test version of dtg_domoticz.lua you could test to see if that ignores these type of device responses, but it clearly is a wrong response for a regular device.

Jos

test version code of dtg_domoticz.lua:

Code: Select all

-- A set of support functions currently aimed at dtgbot,
-- but probably more general

function form_device_name(parsed_cli)
-- joins together parameters after the command name to form the full "device name"
	command = parsed_cli[2]
	DeviceName = parsed_cli[3]
	len_parsed_cli = #parsed_cli
	if len_parsed_cli > 3 then
	for i = 4, len_parsed_cli do
		DeviceName = DeviceName..' '..parsed_cli[i]
	end
	end
	return DeviceName
end

	-- So just keep trying after 1 second sleep

How did you compile the lua libraries?
In the OP is a 32bit version supplied.

I'm running the latest beta 3.7450, but i think i figured it out. Because the hardware i removed (kodi) can't be found in the hardware list any more (now called kodi players). So i figure it has to do with that and not with the script. Maybe this is the solution for maomanna and his raspberry pi, remove the device that doesn't give any results and add the new "updated" hardware.

Thanks for the help!

nice findings!

Meaning that there will be some check if a JSON request is failed, that the device will be skipped and the script will continue.

That is what I have tried to do in the posted updated script... It should at least continue in case data is missing.

Strange question, when somebody enters our house and both me and the wife aren't at home, i get a msg (telegram) that somebody is in my house. Would it be possible to interact with that via dtgbot so that you get a question which you can answer yes or no. So for example: Somebody is in your home, is that correct? If you will reply with yes, nothing will happen and you will get no further notifications, answering no would mean sounding the alarm etc.

Anything is possible as long as DTGBOT understands the Yes/No command. So maybe your script that sends the warning should also set a uservariable which you then check when a Yes/No command is received... just thinking out loud here.

Hi Jos,

I wanted to try DTGBOT, but I can't seem to get it to work. I have tried changing all kinds of settings, but DTGBOT starts, than exits after a minute or two.
The TelegramBotOffset variable stays at 1.
setting the TelegramBotLoglevel variable to 1 or 2 does not create more log output.

My error log:

Setting IP to NOT use login credentials also changes nothing.

I did notice one thing: The chatID is single quoted ('TOKEN'), while the rest of the data is double quoted ("DATA"). is this correct?

If you have any pointers on how I can overcome this problem and get the system working, I would much appreciate it!

Thanks!

EDIT:
I feel a bit stupid right now.... found the problem: I entered the external domoticz port (8010) which is forwarded to internal 8080, so changing the port number to 8080 in DomoticzData.sh solved the problem....duh...

Did you manage to find a solution for this? I'm also thinking of implementing a couple of yes/no questions on certain times.

Thanks for the awesome project including the pre-made scripts which really help you to get started! :) Sometimes when there is something "hectic" going on at home it might be difficult to reach anyone by phone. So I thought it might be nice if I send a message to Dtgbot and it would read it aloud at home as there are speakers all around and I already was using the iZsynth script to make Domoticz talk. This was relatively easy to do, I chose a shell script and it just takes the sent message (input variable $2, after the keyword) and passes that string to the already existing script that reads it aloud with iZsynth.

But then it came to my mind that you can send voice message to chats as well so would there be anyway for the bot to capture this kind of message and store the audio file somewhere so that the script could play it? Has anyone played with anything like that or do you have any thoughts whether it could be achievable in some "not too difficult" way? :)

This is indeed possible and just needs some support added for downloading files that are send to the bot.
the original message contains something like this in the received message:

Code: Select all

voice: {
duration: 1,
mime_type: "audio/ogg",
file_id: "AwADBAADWgEAAhtjXXXXKFGC7DJusDAI",
file_size: 4067
}
in stead of text message containing:

Code: Select all

text: "Test"
DTGBot would then have to perform this API call:

Code: Select all

https://api.telegram.org/bot<bot_token>/getFile?file_id=the_file_id
Which returns:

Code: Select all

{
ok: true,
result: {
file_id: "AwADBAADWgEAAhtjXXXXFGC7DJusDAI",
file_size: 4067,
file_path: "voice/111111088413725018.oga"
}
}
It would then be able to retrieve the OGA file with this API call:

Code: Select all

https://api.telegram.org/file/bot<token>/<file_path>
That is all to it and just needs to be coded now :)

Thanks! Need to start looking into the code a bit more carefully to see how to maybe catch the audio messages for further processing...:)

By the way, now I implemented the text based notification so that is sent like "Announcement This-is-a-test-announcement" as I noticed the script needs to strip the spaces away. Is there perhaps some more elegant way to allow the use of spaces in the announcement text and just catch this in the script so that it would not strip the spaces in this case? Also, it has happened a couple of times now that dtgbot is still running but not acting on any received messages. I've enabled full logging to hopefully get into bottom of this but do you already know what could be causing this? Restarting the service always solves it.

I will wip something up probably this evening to support voice files. What I am considering is to have it perform the following command when a voice file is received:

Code: Select all

voice url-for-filedownload
So you would need to have a voice.sh or lua that will download the file with curl and then process it.

As to your question: How do you process the Announcement commands? Need to check but though all parameters are copied to the shelled process.

Great, looking forward to this! :)

I cannot access the script now, but basically what I first tried was something like

Code: Select all

Announcement This is a test announcement
and when I passed the $2 parameter to the script it was changed to "thisisatestannouncement". So I looked into dtgbot.lua and noticed the line that is parsing the input variables for the script from the message and it was something like [%w-_] i.e. stripping other than non-alphanumericals except - and _. I then changed it to [%w-_åäö] to allow the use of local characters and in the announcement.sh script I just replace - and/or _ with space so that it passes the correct string to the iZsynth script that creates the audio file. So now I would send

Code: Select all

Announcement This-is-a-test-announcement
or
Announcement This_is_a_test_announcement
and it will read it out loud correctly with pauses between the words. Was just thinking if there was a nice way to avoid it and be able to use spaces in the message sent to the bot. But this is probably something we will not be using anymore if the bot can soon pass the audio message to a script as well :D
