Username or Email : Okay this clear I enter my email adress in.


Password : what password do you need? because is strange if you need my email adress password.


domoticz.host.net : For this I need to create an DNS server that will connect to my domoticz?


443 : okay, this is clear open the port to my domoticz.


controlicz_user : must I create the same user name on my domoticz?


controlicz_password : Enter the password from my domoticz with the user what I add above.

Hi -
Email;
Password for Controlicz account (NOT your actual email password!)
yep - domoticz DNS (or static IP)
port - whatever you've configured domoticz to use - i would suggest non-standard port number
controlicz_user/password - the domoticz username/password you've created for Controlicz ON your Domoticz instance.

Hi, My Google Home has stopped connecting to my Domoticz, when I ask Google to sync devices i get "Sorry an error occurred syncing Controlicz" When I look at my firewall logs I don't see any incoming connections. If I go to https://www.controlicz.com login and click "Test connection to your Domoticz" this passes and I see an incoming connection on my firewall from an Amazon IP address.
Is something broken?
Since a few days I am also no longer able to sync my devices, Google Home responds with 'An error occurred while syncing Controlicz'. I am still able to control my devices. Any suggestions?

Can you disable and reenable the test in the simulation?

Hello, today, no 404 :D
l have blinds defined in domoticz. What should I say to open them ?
When I say "ouvre le velux" (open the blind called velux in french) Google says "ok J'allume la lumière velux" (ok I turn on the light velux" ans the blind .... Closes.
Hmmm...funny. Because when I say "Ouvre le volet du salon", it works fine. I mean it says "ok j'allume la lumière volet du salon" and it opens the shutter.
What kind of device are you using for you're blinds? My shutter is managed by a Qubino Zwave module that is recognized by domoticz as a dimmer.
Thanks for the answer.

Hi. Well I guess that the difference between your configuration and mine is that I'm using a 'Dimmer' instead of a Blind.
My device is recognized as a dimmer and I never tried to switch the declaration to a 'Blind'.
I've just checked in Domoticz and there's a 'Blinds Inverted' type. Would switching to this type solve your problem?

EDIT :
I've just tried out the 'Blinds Percentage Inverted'. It works fine. If I say 'Ouvre le volet du salon' it opens the shutter. I a say 'Ferme le volet du salon', it closes the shutter. If I say 'Règle le volet du salon à 40%', it opens (or closes) the shutter up the 40%.
So try to switch from 'Blinds' to 'Blinds Inverted' in your domoticz configuration.

so weirdly, I can see lots of control requests for you, but NO sync requests - like Controlicz isnt being called :(

Even more weird is that after a few hours controlling devices also resulted in an error. Unlinking and linking in the Google home app resolved the issue

i think (hope) some of these connectivity issues will be resolved when it's finally released into Live. Controlicz is up, and stable - but i'm definitely seeing issues in request/response between GA/GH and Controlicz

I'm struggling with the authorization to work. For a while I couldn't connect from controlicz to my domoticz instance. Today, suddenly the lights responded to my google home. I unlinked google home and had to unfortunately reboot my rpi. Now it doesn't work anymore. Testing the connection from the controlicz website fails. Domoticz is telling me this in the log:

Error: [web:443] Failed authentication attempt, ignoring client request (remote address: 35.176.67.167)

so the router seems to be correctly setup. I have addded an account in domoticz (setup / more options / edit users). The user is enabled, has user rights and sharing enabled).

What more can I do?

Hi, Madgeni!

Controlicz, apparently, does not quite work correctly with thermometers / thermostats

I have simple temperature sensors in the system.

But apparently, Google Home takes them as thermostats (the thermostat is also there, but he is one).

If I say "set the thermostat to 24 degrees," then the answer is "9 thermostats set to 24 degrees."
If to ask "what temperature outside" there will be an answer something of type "-2 degrees and it is off"

Hi -
You're right - kind of :)
Controlicz DOES understand the difference between thermostats/sensors - but Google DOES NOT.

https://developers.google.com/actions/s ... thermostat

I have to treat all heating as thermostats - so that's why it's setting all to 24 degrees. I would suggest naming your thermostat to something else (you can use the Controlicz override in your Domoticz description.
The 'and it is off' issue is with Google to fix - i pass state to Google, it just ignores it :)

Can you PM your email address, and i'll take a look. That error suggests it doesn't like the username/password you've specified in Controlicz.

if you try curl-ing this in a terminal: curl "https://yourusername:password@yourhost:port/json.htm?type=command&param=getSunRiseSet"
What happens?

Hi
I agree it looks like I didn't put in the right password. Again, the curl-answer suggests so:

<html><head><title>Unauthorized</title></head><body><h1>401 Unauthorized</h1></body></html>

I have sent my email address.

So in Domoticz, change the password, then update your Controlicz profile with that password, and try again?

Apart from opening/closing/up/down - what other things can you do with your blinds via Domoticz? can you set them to a certain height/width/percentage?

Had some interesting conversations today - Blinds/Notifications/SelectorSwitches and real-time status updates are coming - I think the last ones are tied to the CES announced Google Home displays that are being launched.
Lots of fun for you all, more work for me!
