dzVents vs Pass2PHP vs MyDomoticz-Scripts

Post by qwerk » Friday 19 May 2017 20:17

In my search for better/quicker/easier/faster script handling, I found 3 possibilities besides the "normal" lua scripts and blockly.

in no particular order:

dzVents https://github.com/dannybloe/dzVents
Pass2PHP https://egregius.be/2016/lua-pass2php-v2-0/
MyDomoticz-Scripts https://github.com/Siewert308SW/MyDomoticz-Scripts

they all have ( in my opinion) the same basic thought, don't let domoticz run all the scripts, but start them from 1 or 2 base scripts.
Not 1 off them is simple enough to implement overnight. :D
I do want to putt time in learning one off them.

Can you comment on the possible choices, and advice me which to choose.

My domoticz environment is build with 8 movement sensors, several temperature sensors, door/windows sensors, together they turn on and off light, heating and camera devices, etc etc .

thanks in advance

Do yoy know lua or php?
I found Php quite easy and there are millions of examples online.
Just use the language you like most.
Like you say, if you use one master script to trigger others there won't be huge differences in speed.

I went for dzVents, and I have to say, it was relatively easy to get it working.
Domoticz responds faster then before and the cpu is a bit less occupied.

This doesn't mean that Pass2PHP and/or MyDomoticz-Scripts are worse orso, but I had to choose one. :D

I was just wondering myself the same 'speed' thing. I Watched a dzvents instructions video. Really nice. At the moment all pass2php here. As egregius says. A lot of online examples and I am able to use already defined php classes to 'talk' to my TVs webserver :) and do easy other stuff like calling kodi api's. Did not know lua nor php. Just using good old Mr Google as my guide.
