I do this with a user variable

Sorry for the off-topic. I've tried to make a reliable "presence" check for my robot mower for a few times now. First with z-wave magnet sensor, but the issue was range (ok, could do something about that but the price/effort in current situation would be a bit high) and then with a microswitch attached to Nexa WBT-912 which has enough range, but the return mechanism in the microswitch is so strong / switch is so sensitive that the switch "opens" by itself soon after the mower has docked. So the question, what is your weapon of choice and how have you been able to make it reliable? :)

Hi Lebo2d9,

thanks for the info, its strange that it works with user variables but not with text fields. Have to look for a other possibility here.

@Nautilus i have an Gardena mower with an wlan module (robonect) so i can just ping the module for a presence check. But i think a z-wave magnet sensor woud be the best bet if its possible with the mower.

Thanks! Yes a wifi-connection would be nice, but no retrofits available for a Robomow that I can see of. Maybe need to experiment with the magnet switch still or try if a z-wave power plug would give different readings when mowing, charging & idle (range should be better for a powered device, but remains to be seen whether there is notable consumption difference for idle / mowing, I guess there should be though).

Hello,
did you suceed to
check the "Error" of your "Mower" regularly?
As I am planning to implement a similar solution I would be interested

My plan is to check regularly the Mower Status
(http://1.2.3.4/xml?cmd=status&svalue=TEXT)
and put the result to a text field.
(How do I have to do this. Via LUA script? Example is appreciated)
This Text field I want to check regularly if an error occured.


Example Output of Mower Status

Code: Select all

<robonect>
<successful>true</successful>
<name>XXXXXXX</name>
<status>
<status>17</status>
<stopped>false</stopped>
<duration>29636</duration>
<mode>0</mode>
<battery>100</battery>
<hours>1234</hours>
</status>
<timer>
<status>2</status>
<next>
<date>25.09.2017</date>
<time>06:00:00</time>
<unix>1506319200</unix>
</next>
</timer>
<wlan>
<signal>-95</signal>
</wlan>
</robonect>
