HC3: All-in-One QA 11.8

   (1 review)

About This File

AOQ can control any other Fibaro system HC3, HC2, HCL (master/slave concept) Before migrating your devices to HC3, AOQ could be the solution to make it smooth and simple.

If you've found yourself with too many Lua and Block scenes and need more automation, this QA is the right solution for you.

The QA is designated to control and monitor your home system. QA automatically identifies the type of elements in the system. (Z-wave device, Nice, QA device, scene, automatic scene (Block and Lua). Any valid Z-wave,Nice and QA devices property and their values could be monitored, controlled and execute commands accordingly

AOQ supports custom events, active profile setup and controls alarm zones while every breached zone or sensor in the zone could be identified and execute actions accordingly.

 

The first time you use All-in-One QA, jM {} hash table must be defined. Each line in the table has two mandatory and two optional fields.

jM={ {      15,              "137|630",       {timeSlot={“12:00~18:00”},state="value=true",     trueAct={“|230|”, “turnOn”,””}}}   }

           Time span      IDs list                                   Criteria & Rules                                               Action tables

 

Time span   a period of time (in minutes) within which some activity must be performed by device or scene. Additional two options could be defined:

  1. time span = 0   defines the line as activity only.
  2. time span = ‘negative number’   line is suspended (remarked)

IDs list   given list of devices/scenes/QA/global/keywords. Use under score for scene IDs. (“_45”).

  • global variable – add an ampersand sign & to System, QA and Local variable names: &varName
  • keyword – add a dollar sign $ to keyword variable: $name

Note: To use & and $ characters for other purpose , add % after the character.

Criteria & Rules  (optional) property, state, time slot, active rules…

Action tables      (optional) tables of commands to be executed.

 

To avoid using device IDs  jS2n{} array could be defined. If device ID changed because of re-inclusion it requires to change ID in one place only.

for example:

jS2n= {boiler=137, dryer=630, light=230} device name must be included within back apostrophe sign in jM{} hash table.

Now jM{} hash table above will look like that:

jM={ { 15,  "`boiler`|`dryer`",{timeSlot={“12:00~18:00”},state="value=true",     trueAct={“`light`”, “turnOn”,””}}}   }

 

1. Monitor option

Some time the scenes or QA devices are stuck w/o any understandable reason. Some devices suddenly stop to send reports or don’t change state. In most of the cases we don’t aware about the problem till something goes very wrong.  The monitor option will send an alert in case of defined states are timed out.

Example to set watchdog timer for devices, scenes, QA devices, global variables and keywords

jM={     

{8, "_17|_545",{timeSlot=”10:00~22:00”}},  -- within every 8 min.  between 10am to 10pm, scenes 17, 545 must be active. If not alert sent.

{3,"134|618|_556|_588"},  -- within  every 3 min. devices 134,618 and scenes 556,588 must be active. If not auto-alert sent.

{10,”132|145”,{property=”power”}}, -- within every 10 min. devices in list must to report new power value. If not auto-alert sent.

{30,”470”,{state=”power>10”}}, -- if device’s power greater than 10 over 30 minutes, auto-alert sent.

{20,”&HomeStatus|$iDoor”}} -- if global variable HomeStatus or keyword iDoor didn’t change within 20 min., auto-alert sent.

 

2. Control option

Execute actions based on device state, status or value changes. QA supports option like on-line calculations, time modifications, IF THEN and WHEN THEN statements and other features for fully home automation just with one QA (which even doesn’t trigger by the system). 

Following action tables are available:

  1. trueAct{} - executed when state status is true.
  2. falseAct{} - executed when state status is false.
  3. trigAct{} - executed on every value change at any mode, true or false
  4. timeoutAct{} - Disables auto-alert notification and executed when elapsed time exceeds time span. Time span counting restarted after state status back to true.
  5. timeLoopAct{} - Disables auto-alert notification and executed when elapsed time exceeds time span. Time counting restarted immediately.
  6. InitAct{} - Set of specific actions to be executed on startup only.
  7. errAct{} - Set of specific actions to be executed if verification failed.
  8. okAct{} - Set of specific actions to be executed if verification succeded.

 

Here is an example of most common scenario, to turn on light when motion sensor breached and turn off light when sensor back to safe after few minutes (3 min. in this example)

jM={0,”`mSensor`”,{state=”value=true”,trueAct={“`lightSw`”,”turnOn”,””},falseAct={“`lightSw`”,”turnOff”,”180”}}}

Since no need to turn on light during the day, timeslot could be defined

jM={0,”`mSensor`”,{state=”value=true”,timeslot=”18:00~07:00”,trueAct={“`lightSw`”,”turnOn”,””},falseAct={“`lightSw`”,”turnOff”,”180”}}}

But now could be an issue to turn off the light, if sensor breached few seconds before end of timeslot and back to safe is out of defined time slot, falseAct{} won’t be executed. In this case, turning light off action should be part of trueAct{} table

jM={0,"`mSensor`”,{state=”value=true”,timeslot=”18:00~07:00”,trueAct={{“`lightSw`”,”turnOn”,””},{“`lightSw`”,”turnOff”,”180”}}}

Z-wave devices, global variables and keywords could be defined at several lines (no limit). Scene could be defined one time only.

following data shown for every command:

jM line number: device name: state value and status by color (green - true  |  pink - false); command executed.

The debug information has special tag "AOQ<QA-ID>" and "TRACE" / "WARNING" / "ERROR" type for filtering.

AOQ table preview:

Table's header includes:

  • startup time stamp, script current version, scene Name, LED as displayed at HC3 front panel, sunrise/set hours.
  • Current home mode (@home or @vacation)
  • System's current profile mode.
  • Elapsed time
  • Total Z-wave events
  • Min, average and max Z-traffic

Table columns are:

  • Type – device type (Z.Device, G. Variable, Keyword, QA, luaScene, blockScene).
  • ID: Description – room name: device ID: device name. Z-wave devices sorted by rooms, then by device ID.
    • Battery capable device have green background according to current battery level.
    • If device included in alarm circle icon appears before name. green circle - armed, red circle - breached

  • Value – items current value.
  • Criteria – state of evaluation to determine true or false status. If formula included, the state displayed on green background.
  • in State– elapsed time since last status change.
  • Alert – by default this column isn’t shown. If any devices have been alerted the column will be shown.
    • Please notice that in some cases the device could be alerted, but after while it could back to normal activity. For example, if motion sensor is breached over specified time-span, alert notification will be sent. But after a while the sensor back to safe and alert is canceled, “back to normal” notification will be sent.  At header of alert column shown current number of alerts
  • Time Span – time span to monitor state of items.
    • If time span set to 0, then this line acts as activity, no timeout alerts reported.
    • If time span set to negative number, this line is suspended and no actions executed.
  • Time Slot – Time slot range to execute related actions. Timestamp to execute specific action at specific time. Active (in range) time slot shown in green fonts.
  • trueAct – list of actions to execute when the state is true.
  • falseAct – list of actions to execute when the state is true.
  • trigAct – list of actions when the value changes
  • timeoutAct – list of actions to execute when time-span reached.  Timer will be restarted when device state changed again to true.
  • timeLoopAct – list of actions to execute when time-span reached.  Timer restarted immediately after actions table executions.
  • initAct – list of actions to execute on QA startup.
  • Active Rules – non default defined rules (initOnStartup, Vacation, timeSpanOn, onClock, lineState, trigAll)
  • jM{#} - line number in jM{} hash table
  • jM{ hash table line} – shows device location in jM{} hash table.

 

At the bottom of the table two execution lines show:

  1. list of up to 60 last executed actions (in order of execution) are displayed. (like CNN news line).
  2. list of delayed commands to be executed (and time left to execute)

 

All global variables, their values and last modification time shows below the table.

 

What's New in Version 11.8   See changelog

Released

New features

 

  1. Notify only on one dead child (first reported by the system) of the same physical device.
  2. Added an option to display text messages in debugging console for debug/trace/warning/error levels (same as fibaro.debug/error….)

trueAct={“tag”,”debug”,”debug message”}

trueAct={“tag”,”trace”,”trace message”}

trueAct={“tag”,”error”,”error message”}

trueAct={“tag”,”warning”,”warning message”}

 

all above commands could be executed with no “tag” also, but it’s recommended to use tag to filter messages.

See Debugging levels in Advanced User Guide for more info.

 

  1. Added an option to compare multiple values in state definition using "==" operator. Not available for any other operators (< / > / = / <>)

 

{0,"`KeyFob`",{state="sceneActivation==1 or 2 or 3", trueAct= {“`Light`","turnOn"}}},

{0,"`temp`",{state="power==40 or 50", trueAct= {“`heater`","turnOff"}}},

 

If the string is too long the full data won't be displayed in the table ( only first 30 characters).

In HcWebEye and by hovering the mouse on the line, full condition will be displayed.

 

 

  1. To disable dead reports on specific device set as follow

 

HC2/HCL set mark if dead to no in device configuration

HC3/HC3 Lite/Yubii Home unmark “Mark if unavailable” field in device’s Advanced configuration

 

 

Note: The “transfer failed” notification will continue to be reported as NACK in Dead Traffic data table.

 

  1. Added an option to use user-defined property in state when the property is not defined in device by adding "+" sign to property name.

 

{0,”DevId”,”state=”+newProperty=true”….

 

Bugs Fix

  1. Time range in condition statement. ($24clock:value=08:00~10:00)

  2. Minor bugs fix.

Hi,

Thank you for your code. I migrating mine All-in-One from HC2 and have noticed that setArm and forceArm commands are not supported? 

Another question - I have few QA devices with sliders but I don't find any way to use their values in AOQ!? Can you please take a look on that?

Thanks for the scripts, made the migration to HC3 very smooth and 95% is working!!

Thanks for input.

Regarding setArm and forceArm, these commands are not supported by HC3 because fibaro has decided not to control every sensor but to use alarm zones instead.

By the way today if sensor breached there is no indication on UI about that and you need to work hard to monitor which sensor breached. (same for arm/disarm states).

It has been quite a challenge to integrate new alarm concept into AOQ. Please take a look on how to use alarm.. https://forum.fibaro.com/topic/51320-hc3-all-in-one-qa-how-to-do-it-better/

Regarding slider value, I'll see what I can do...

Again, thanks for an input

Regarding sliders - currently there is a bug and slider value doesn't updated properly. You can see when you open new tab the slider value is zero!

Let's hope next release Fibaro will fix the issue.
