Gigaset Elements Cli - domoticz support

Post by dynasticorpheus » Monday 12 October 2015 16:42

I have started to add Domoticz support to my (python based) Gigaset Elements cli which can be found on PyPI and GitHub.

https://github.com/dynasticorpheus/gigasetelements-cli

[TO-DO]
* Set system and sensor status at initial startup
* More sanity checks

[INSTALLATION]
In case you want to test please follow below steps:

1. Go to Setup / Hardware in Domoticz GUI
2. Add hardware - dummy
3. Create a virtual sensor - type Alert for basestation (remember the idx number)
4. Create a virtual sensor - type Manual Light/Switch for each motion/door/window/siren/plug/button/camera (remember their idx numbers)
5. Set Off Delay to 2 seconds for virtual sensors linked to motion, button or camera

6. Install gigasetelements-cli using PyPI or GitHub

PyPI

Code: Select all

pip install gigasetelements-cli
GitHub

Code: Select all

git clone git://github.com/dynasticorpheus/gigasetelements-cli.git
cd gigasetelements-cli
python setup.py install --force
7. Download config file and add username and password

Code: Select all

curl -o ~/.gigasetelements-cli/gigasetelements-cli.conf https://raw.githubusercontent.com/dynasticorpheus/gigasetelements-cli/master/gigasetelements-cli.conf.template
Config file will be automatically loaded if found in one of the below locations. Use --config to specify an alternative location.

Code: Select all

/opt/etc/gigasetelements-cli.conf
/usr/local/etc/gigasetelements-cli.conf
/usr/etc/gigasetelements-cli.conf
/etc/gigasetelements-cli.conf
~/.gigasetelements-cli/gigasetelements-cli.conf
~/Library/Application Support/gigasetelements-cli/gigasetelements-cli.conf
8. Run below command to get sensor ids and match them with the their respective idx in domoticz

Code: Select all

gigasetelements-cli -ss
9. Run below command to get camera sensor id. Use the 12 uppercase digits in stream url. This MAC address can also be found on the back of
the camera.

Code: Select all

gigasetelements-cli -a
10. Fill out collected details in the [domoticz] section in the config file.
11. Do a test run of the of the program to see if everything is working as expected.

Code: Select all

gigasetelements-cli -tt
Image
12. Once working start with additional arguments so it runs as daemon, automatically restarts in case of errors and creates a log file.

Code: Select all

gigasetelements-cli -tt --restart --daemon --log /tmp/gigasetelements-cli.log
In case you can't get it running please feel free to post your issue in this thread.

[CUSTOM ICONS]
I extracted the icons used in the adroid app and created a custom set for domoticz.

Re: Gigaset Elements Cli - domoticz support

Post by Stager » Monday 12 October 2015 21:03

First of all a big thanks for working on gigaset elements support for domoticz! I was really excited trying this out.

I had a couple of start-up problems, mostly caused by not reading carefully. After proper configuration the virtual device gets a status and the variable is updated without any problems.

Things i bumped into:
  1. idx of variable not readable through UI, had to use http://172.20.1.10:8080/json.htm?type=c ... rvariables
  2. couple of (uncaught) crashes due to wrong variable idx
  3. config in ~/gigasetelement-cli/gigasetelements-cli.conf doesn't work anymore
  4. pbtoken can't be removed from config (empty is ok)
I'll trigger some alarms tomorrow. Do you think you can add the motion sensors for example as alert sensor? I have two sensors currently active and it would be great to wire them to turn on the lights. It would be great to have an array for mapping the friendly gigaset device name (or id) and domoticz idx. ID's are visible at https://api.gigaset-elements.com/api/v1/me/basestations

  4. pbtoken can't be removed from config (empty is ok)
1. If you go to more options/user variables in the webinterface the idx is shown as first colum
2. Once we have the structure sorted I will add some exception handling
3. I have changed the above instructions to use ~/gigasetelement-cli/gigasetelements-cli.conf as this is the preferred location and is used if more copies are found
4. Again this needs more exception handling however already the case in the main version

I will start working on having a virtual device per gigaset elements sensor, motion and door first.

I have pushed an update to github and adjusted the instructions in the OP. Please use the new gigasetelements-cli.conf.template as it contains new/changed values.

This version will push health, motion and door data to separate virtual sensors. (so you need to add two extra ones)

Again current code is really prototype style so there is almost no error handling yet and the code really lacks cleanup/optimization still :!:

Changes are working for me :-) I created a new docker image with newer domoticz. Variable IDs are now visible in UI.

cool, so are you now able to use the motion sensor to switch on the lights? Assuming this can be achieved through a Lua script using data from otherdevices_svalues['Gigaset Elements Motion'] table?

This Lua stuff is new for me so please share if you manage to get this working so I can learn as well :geek:

Really getting hooked to this Domoticz stuff :) I now got it to send me a webcam snapshot via telegram if motion is detected on my gigaset elements camera :ugeek:

What options do you use to start the program and can you show me your ~/.gigasetelements-cli/gigasetelements-cli.conf ?

The domoticz part of the program needs at least below values to be filled (domoticz username/password can be empty if they are not setup in domoticz itself)

Code: Select all


[accounts]
# username (email) in use with my.gigaset-elements.com
username: [email protected]

# password in use with my.gigaset-elements.com
password: mybigsecret

# add token to enable pushbullet notification (optional)
pbtoken:


[domoticz]
# domoticz server ip address (optional)
ip: 127.0.0.1

# domoticz server port (optional)
port: 8080

# domoticz user name (optional)
username:

# domoticz password (optional)
password:

# domoticz (alert) device idx numbers (optional)
health: 1
motion: 2
door: 3

# domoticz (string) variable idx number (optional)
variable: 1

Hi
Sounds very promising.
I have a Gigaset kit at home that I was on the way to recycle. I have know changed my mind :)

Do You have any example of how it looks like in Domoticz GUI?

As promised ... btw just received my Gigaset Elements Plug so I am playing with that as well now :) Will update the main code soon to add support for this piece of hardware.

I have added domoticz support to the master branch and removed my initial code. This is a completely different approach so please follow updated instructions in OP. In case of questions please let me know.

Did you already have a go at it? Curious to know if it also works well for other people.

Well done! It works perfectly. Any way how to start it with domotics after reboot?

When running the -ss command I get an error saying:
[-] Configuration | ERROR | Username and/or password missing
I'm 100% sure my username and password are in the .conf file and that they are correct. Any advice?

Er treed een onbekende connectie error op echter door een bug in de oudere versies van urllib3 welke wordt meegeleverd bij requests komt de bijbehorende error message niet naar voren. Stap 1 is dus om requests te updaten zodat we wellicht meer hints krijgen om het een en ander werkend te krijgen.

Code: Select all

pip install --upgrade requests
Verder raad ik aan om in afwachting van de 1.5 release de develop versie te installeren, heb hier en daar wat verbeteringen doorgebracht om het een en ander wat minder foutgevoelig te maken.

Code: Select all

pip install --upgrade https://github.com/dynasticorpheus/gigasetelements-cli/zipball/develop
Hoor van je ...
