Multi value custom sensor

Post by Justmenl » Monday 23 January 2017 21:16

I love domoticz and applaud the develpment team.

I know we keep asking for more and more ...

Would it be possible to create a custom sensor with more than one value like the thermometer/hygrometer combo?
This way we can create bandwith sensors with up- and download speeds in one graph or other combination sensors like lightning with number of discharges and distance in one graph.

The sensor could then be filled by scripts using json or mqtt.

Regards,

Justme

+1, I'd combine my internet usage upload and download custom sensors into a single custom sensor.

Same for me !
And for other sensors too like my Mi Flora.

It would be very nice !

And btw dev make a really good work !

Same here. Although I'm using ISP's bandwidth page and node-js scrap-it module + mqtt to post data to Domoticz.

Thanks dev for such an awesome platform.

Couldn't groups kind of fullfill this idea?

I recently created a wireframe for a usability redesign.
https://www.domoticz.com/forum/viewtopi ... =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 height. A masonry javascript could then stack everything together optimally.

If a number of things are grouped, then the display of that group could show an interface that is is smart about what is inside that group.

- Only sensors: show sensor values in a list.
- 3 sensors and a switch: show sensor values and a toggle button.
- 4 buttons: show 1 toggle button.
- 3 buttons and one slider: show 1 toggle button and 1 slider.
etc

@blauwebuis

I don't know if the groups from your proposal could do this. I for one would like to see the sensors details combined. So I can see multiple values in one graph like you can do with the temperature and see correlations.

But with the temperature, although you can do this, you need to "reprogram" the settings each time you request them.

So the request for multi value custom sensors is beyond what is shown on the dashboard.

+1 ... custom sensors (CS) with double values / axis would be great :)

This would allow us to reduce the number of CS by merging similar values into one graph. By example :
- bandwidth (upload & download)
- counters (value & percentage)
- power (watt & VA)

Even if this is not the solution sought in this thread, I think this would be as awesome feature for the dashboard page! :)

I already asked something similar in another post. Somewhere.

But in general the possibility to create graphs with flexible legenda and multiple values will be a godsend.
e.g. I have a fine-dust meter which outputs ppm for 2.5µ and 10µm particles...

Hi,

I totally join the crowd to ask for such a feature.

Regarding the particule sensor, I am creating one as well that provide multiple values (PM, particule counts of various sizes) and feed Domoticz through a MQTT broker, but at the end I have so many different virtual devices that it make the analysis unreadable.

My sensor software is available here: https://github.com/ChrisP-Git/PartSense, and the hardware/3D files here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2320020

I would love to have such a type of multiple value sensor.
It would solve the problem of all clustered pages full of sensors.
Also it would make it easier to implement homebrew sensors with EspEasy or what so ever.
