  1. Version: 4.510 HC2 REST API Hi guys, since update to version 4.510 i get sometimes this email: "Suspicious Login Attempts Prevented: We noticted 5 failed login attempts to your HC2 that seemed suspicious. For your security, the following IP address xxx has been locked for 30 min" Why? The REST Auth are right. At start status code 200 with successful result and a little bit later 401 bad user and pass. All request, in the previous version, ran flawlessly...
  2. Which Voice control should I go for? Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant or something else? I have a home based on z-wave+ components (see profile) controlled by HC2. Currently I have no voice control setup. If home control is the primary purpose, which one should I go for? And Why?
  3. Hi Everyone Smart Message Hub v1.2 (SMsgH v1.2) is now available. This release includes fixes tor three bugs that had various impacts and support for international characters. Thanks to @Sankotronic and @szmyk for locating the faults and extra feature for international characters "FIRST TIME USERS" - Please read below and follow the instructions laid out for first time users UPGRADING FROM 1.1b to 1.2 - Please use this Post - if you are a current user and may wish to consider avail of the fixes or extra feature This scene enables a user to send a message from either a scene or a virtual device to a number of notification and TTS services with a startScene call fibaro:startScene(682, {message, target}) -- Using ID of scene fibaro:startScene(SMsgH, {message, target}) -- Using HomeTable reference The scene also enables messages to be re-routed or queued depending on whether the house is set to Away mode, Sleep mode or if internet is not available. (See below for more details) A demo VD {v1.1} is also available to help demonstrate the scene features. SCENE FEATURES Smart Configuration options include the ability to re-route and/or queue all messages under certain conditions. (Internet unavailability , home occupancy mode presentState = Away) Messages with international characters are also supported Notification messages can be redirected to Home Center 2 Popup notification service if the internet is offline or unavailable Notification messages can be queued if the internet is offline or unavailable. All Messages in the queue will be released as one combined message once the internet come s back online. All TTS messages can be redirected to Home Center 2 Popup notification service if the internet is unavailable or offline or if the sonosAPI is offline if this solution is being leveraged All TTS messages can be queued if presentsState = Away. All TTS messages in the queue will be announced once presentsState = Home Simplified the message invocation method to startScene Invoked via startScene(SMsgHid, {message string} (SMsgHid is the id of the SMsgH scene when it is saved to your system ) See below for examples messageHub global no longer required (please delete when you have migrated all your scenes to using 1.1) Added support for sleepState (no TTS messages if set to Sleep) Additional support for HC2 popup notifications Types (Critical, Successs, Info, Warning) Images (use full url) Buttons (represented as a table) - See @Sankotronic [TUTORIAL] on popup notifications to see how to format Added ability to delay unloading of TTS messages by predefined time in seconds Added support for custom language in for TTS and Notify redirects default Popup title and subtitle Minor bug fixing and code cleaning Configuration options also include a default message notification target, title, subtitle and volume but all these can also be specified as part of the message invocation. There are three levels of debug verbosity. In normal mode there is a minimal amount of information displayed as the scene is triggered. The two other modes allow for much more expressive displaying of scene variables as well as configuration settings if enabled deBgVar is enabled in the scene so you can see the interactions- it can be disabled in normal running mode SCENE MESSAGING OPTIONS The supported services in this release include the following (supported in 1.0 & 1.1) Pushover Notifications -------------------------------------------------------> [TUTORIAL] on creating Pushover account and set up allinone ( jompa68 scene) Telegram messages hc2email (Home Center 2 email service) hc2push (Home Center 2 push notification service) hc2popup (Home Center 2 Popup Notification service) -------------------> [TUTORIAL} Popup Noification and Custom Inages Sonos-api based TTS --------------------------------------------------------> [TUTORIAL] Setting up and using Alternative Sonos VD using node-sonos-api Sonos VD Remote based TTS -----------------------------------------------> Discussion on Sonos Remote V1.0.0 beta I have also included a Companion Demo VD. The virtual device will allow the user to demonstrate the scenes queuing/unloading capabilities. CAUTION: The companion VD in demo mode can adjust the presentState and sleepState globals and will cause any other scene you may have with this as a trigger to execute A simplified version of the LAN Monitor VD called the WWWAPI Monitor will monitor just the sonos-api if desired and does not any in-built notification options like the LAN Monitor VD 2.5.Smart Message Hub users should use either the WWWAPI Monitor or LAN Monitor 2.6 Special thanks extended to @Sankotronic @petergebruers, @jompa68 and @szmyk for their contributions leading to 1.2 Once the scene configuration is complete I would recommend running the demonstration virtual device. This will give you a better understanding of the options and features as well providing some sample messages that you can run. Ideas for subsequent revisions are always welcome _f RELEASE CHANGELOG v1.0 - First release (march 4th 2017) v1.1 - Second release (march 17th 2017) v1.2 - Third Release (june 24th 2017) ================================================ FIRST TIME USERS - INSTALLATION & CONFIGURATION ================================================ The code is available in both lua and txt format below Paste code into scene and run - All global variables will be automatically created (Please do not adjust global triggers in scene header) Configure options as required at top of scene (line 100 onwards) Configure enable smart redirects Configure HC2 email settings, HC2 push settings and TTS services Configure default message titles, subtitles and volume Configuration notification settings, tokens, etc Enable/Disable increased debug and config verbosity for troubleshooting MESSAGE INVOCATION This message hub can be called from either a scene or a virtual device using a startScene call. The following is an example Sample invocations are included below Please see the section on Message Invocation lower down in this post of you wish to send messages with international characters local message = "Warning: Utility room freezer temperature is 10 degrees" local target = "hc2popup" local volume = "25" -- (can be left as "" if not TTS message) local title = "new alert title" local subtitle = "new subtitle" local popType = "Critcal" local popImg = "" local popButtons = "" fibaro:startScene(IDofSMsgHscene, {message, target, volume, title, subtitle, popType, popImg, popButtons}) Note: Replace IDofSMsgHscene with HomeTable reference of numerical ID of the SMsgH scene when it is installed on your system You need to include all parameters up to last one you populate. For example, if you want to specify a subtitle, you need to include message, target, volume and title as well. You CANNOT leave out a parameter in the call. Leave as "" if not used/required and default will be invoked. **USER CONFIGURATIONS & SETTINGS** OPTIONS FOR SMART RE-ROUTING OF MESSAGES The following four options can be set to true or false depending on what features you wish to enable. local tts2popup = "true" Set to true to enables re-routing of sonos TTS messages from either the Sonos VD or the sonos-api solution to HC2 notification Popup if the sonos-http-api or Internet is unavailable/offline to your local LAN local tts2queue = "true" Enable to Silence TTS announcement in sleepState, TTS announcements are NOT queued, they are simply discarded local tts2sleep = "true" Enable a Delay before TTS announcements are unloaded (seconds). Leave as "" for no delay local ttsUnloadDelay = "" -- seconds Set to true to enable Sonos TTS messages to queue when presentState = 'Away'. When presentState is set to Home it triggers the scene to automatically unload all the messages in the TTS queue to the default player that has been named in the configuration section local notify2popup = "true" Set to true to enable all notifications to re-route to HC2Popup notifications if the internet is unavailable/offline to your local LAN local notify2queue = "true" Set to true to enable all notifications to queue when presentState= 'Away'. When presentState is set to Home it triggers the scene automatically and unloads the message in the notifications queue to the default notification service that has been named in the configuration section below The scene as provided has all these 4 options set to true and this is the recommended setup if you wish to leverage full functionality and the demo OPTIONS TO MONITOR THE INTERNET STATUS To achieve the most benefit from this scene the internet and sonos-api should be dynamically monitored. Dynamically monitoring the internet will enable messages (TTS and notifications) to be queued while the internet if offline. Queued message can also be sent as hc2 pop notifications on the local LAN. The preferred monitoring option is named here. The example below is setup to use the LAN Monitor VD 2.5 local ipMonitor = "networkTable" There are 3 options available: Select 'manual' if you wish internet and sonos-api to be permanently set to online. Please note that this option does NOT enable queuing of notification messages. Select 'networkTable' to leverage the LAN Monitor VD 2.5, Select 'wwwapiTable' to leverage the new simplified WWWAPI Monitor 1.0 HC2 EMAIL CONFIGURATION hc2emailUsers = {["su"]="2", ["frank"]="1564", ["sylvia"]="1565"} List all users that you want to be able send messages to. The user id's are located from the HC2. Select Configuration, then Access Control to see the current users. HC2 PUSH CONFIGURATION hc2pushUsers = {["DadiPh"]="563", ["MumiPh"]="155", ["DogiPa"]="175"} List all users that you want to be able send push messages to. The mobile devices ID can be found by going to http://<HC_IP>/docs/ and looking under iosDevices section. local defhc2pushUser = "563" -- identify default hc2push user Select a default user from this list and this is used if there is no user specified as part of the message invocation. TTS PREFERENCES Select your TTS preference. If you use the sonos-http-api solution please enter API. If you use the Sonos VD Remote solution please enter REM. local ttsMethod = "API" Default volume for TTS announcements local defTTSvolume = "12" This allows you to select a default volume and this aplies to both the API and REM sonos solutions. This volume can be changed by including a different volume in the message invocation SONOS-API PREFERENCES Configure this section if you have selected API in the above section. APIplayers = {"hallway","kitchen","bed5_office","landing"} List all the sonos players you want to send TTS messages to. The zone/player names must match exactly what is on your sonos native application local defAPIzone = "bed5_office" The default player/zone selected is used to unload the TTS message when presentState = Home. The default player must be included in the overall players list above local APIipaddress = "" local APIport = "5005" The ip address and port are of the device that is hosting the sonos-api local defAPIlanguage = "Amy" The final item here is the language or voice code for the respective TTS service. Thisoculd be something like en-gb for google or Amy for AWS Polly SONOS REMOTE VD PREFERENCES Configure this section if you have selected REM in the above section. REMplayers = { ["kitchen"] = {vd="295", btn="28"}, ["hall"] = {vd="765", btn="27"}, } List all the sonos player virtual devices you want to send TTS messages to. The virtual device id's and process button id’s much match exactly what is on your HC2 for each virtual device. Please note the process button may differ if you have modified the standard virtual device. local defREMvd = "hall" -- Id of player vd for unloading queue The default player/zone is user to unload the TTS message when presentState = Home. This zone must be included in the overall REMplayers table and the name must match exactly. local defREMlanguage = "en-gb" The final item in this section is the language or voice code for the respective TTS service DEFAULT TITLES AND SUBTITLES This scene has default titles and subtitles and these are used if no title or subtitle is included in the message invocation. local defTitle = "Alert Title" local defSubtitle = "Alert Subtitle" Adjust the default titles and subtitles as you require. Note: Subtitles are only used for PopUp Notifications NOTIFICATION SERVICES There is a broad range of notification services available to use. Some are native to the home center and others are third party services provided by external vendors. local defmessageSvc = "pushover" Select the default notification service that you wish to use. This default service will be used if no service is invoked in the message and is also used as the service to unload the queued messages when presentState = Home PUSHOVER CONFIGURATION This service is provided by pushover.org. You will need to register with them and obtain a token and user key. local POtkn = "" local POusr = "" Once registered you will need to select the devices that you wish to send the pushover notifications to. Once they are added to your pushover account you will need to add their details below. Currently there is only one setting for device which means that all messages to pushover will be send to the devices named in this list. Priority can be set at ) like I have below local POdevice = "Dad_Ph, Kit_iPad, Landing iPad" local POpriority = "0" TELEGRAM CONFIGURATION This service is provided by telegram.org. You will need to register with them and obtain a token and a chat ID local TGtoken = "" local TGchatID = "" DEBUG VERBOSITY OPTIONS This allows a number of levels of debug verbosity. There is a minimal amount of debug window responses running in normal mode but these two capabilities allow the user to observe extra information in the debug window when the scene is running. local deBugVar = true -- deBugVar will display the scene variables local deBugCfg = false -- deBugCfg will display the scene configaution that you have set OCCUPANCY/PRESENCE STATE I am also supporting the presentState as it is defined by Sankotronic and others. -- "PresentState" is predefined global value that determines if you are at home -- or away. This variable value is set by other scene or VD. Enter name of your -- global variable between "" if called different or leave as it is local presentState = "PresentState"; -- Enter corresponding values that you use for presence in your language. Change -- the one in quotes or leave as it is local presentStateMapping = {Home="Home", Away="Away"}; HOMETABLE There is also support for the hometable solution. Hometable is a approach to storing all device ID in a global variable. Please Uncomment the following line if you wish to use Hometable data in scene -- local jT = json.decode(fibaro:getGlobalValue("HomeTable")); POPUP MESSAGE TYPES Default popup message type, possible values: Success, Info, Warning, Critical. Please define popup message default popup type, button caption and buttons if you wish These defaults can be left as is or modified/translated into your own language local defPopType = "Info" local defPopCaption = "OK" local defPopButton = { { caption = defPopCaption, sceneId = 0 }} Please refer to Sankotronic Tutorial "Popup Notifications and Custom Images" for format and examples POPUP REDIRECT TITLES AND SUBTITLES Please amend the text sent to PopUp Notification when Internet or TTS is offline to your own language if you wish. Both Title and subtitle can be modified local TTSofflineTitle = "Announcement" local TTSofflineSubtitle = "TTS is offline, TTS announcement sent as popup notification" local WWWofflineSubtitle = "Internet is offline, TTS announcement sent as popup notification" SAMPLE MESSAGE INVOCATIONS The message function can be invoked with as little as one parameter or as many as five parameters. The following examples will provide a good understanding. Send message to default notification service, with default titles/subtitles fibaro:startScene(682, {message}) -- Replace 682 with id of your SMsgH v1.1 scene or a hometable reference Send message to specific notification service (The notification service must match exactly what is contained in the notifySve table in the variables section) fibaro:startScene(682, {message, target}) (The hc2user in the message invocation must match exactly what is contained in the hc2emailUsers table in the user configuration section) fibaro:startScene(682, {message, "hc2email"}) - send to superuser fibaro:startScene(682, {message, "hc2email frank"}) - send to user frank fibaro:startScene(682, {message, "hc2email frank su"}) - send to user frank and superuser (The hc2push device in the message invocation must match exactly what is contained in the hc2emailUsers table in the user configuration section) fibaro:startScene(682, {message, "hc2push DadiPhone"}) - send to superuser fibaro:startScene(682, {message, "hc2push MumiPhone SarahiPhone"}) - send to mumphone and sarah phone (The sonos player name in the message invocation must match exactly what is contained in either the APIplayers or REMplayers table in the user configuration section) The target can also specify sonos player or VD id for TTS with options fibaro:startScene(682, {message, "kitchen"}) -send TTS to kitchen, default volume fibaro:startScene(682, {message, "hallway", "10"}) -send TTS to kicthen, volume=10 Custom titles and subtitles can also be specified. These will overwrite the default titles and subtitles. Subtitles are only available for HC2 Popup notifications. They can be used with or with a target notification. If the target is omitted it will send to the default notification service that has been named in the configuration section local message = "what ever the message is" fibaro:startScene(682, {message, "", "", "Alert !!", "The wine fridge temp is rising"}) Finally an example of a Message to popup with specified popup type local message = "kitchen window has been breached" fibaro:startScene(682, {message, "hc2popup", "", "Alarm", "House Breach", "Critical"}) MESSAGE WITH INTERNATIONAL CHARACTERS If you want to send message with special characters just use urlencode function: fibaro:startScene(682, {"message", "hc2email", "", "title"}) -- without special chars fibaro:startScene(682, {urlencode("message ąść"), "hc2email", "", "title"}) -- with special chars fibaro:startScene(682, {urlencode("message ąść"), "hc2email", "", urlencode("title ČčĆ抚ĐđŽžáäéè")}) -- with special chars COMPANION DEMONSTRATION VD INSTRUCTIONS (1.1) A number of sample notification and TTS messages can be activated giving the user an understanding of the message invocation format and options Demonstration mode enabled the toggling of 'Internet online/offline', presentState Home/Away, sleepState Sleep/Awake modes.

  4. HC2 on 4.560 was stuck in endless 'Starting Services' state after a power trip. Action taken are: Tried power cycle repeatedly and still stuck in this state. Enter Recovery Mode and select to repair system with latest software. Successful but upon power up, still stuck in the same state. What other actions can be use to recover the system?
  5. Yesterday upgraded HC2 firmware to 4.570. Since then (it seems) that we now cannot connect bia the app, getting error message 'User authorisation issues' when we click on the HC2 at the select your home page. Nothing was changed yesterday except the firmware. Can still connect via IP address on browser. Any thoughts?
  6. Hello. Totaly new and I have start using nodred now. think it looks good and there ae some good tings to try with the dashbord. Is it possible to use the heating panel i Nodered. If yes, can you explain how to do it. Hve include the light from Hc2 to Nodered and it is working . Also got the "who is home " up and running.
  7. Hello. I would need some help with connecting a Fakro VMZ Solar window sunshade to my Home Center 2. I possess with a Fakro ZRH12 remote, which should serve as a bridge to connect the VMZ Solar to the HC2, but I do not know how to integrate it. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thank you
  8. can someone help me? I am trying to create a scene that checks to see if a variable changes. if variable x=1 don't check variable (do nothing) but if variable x=0 then continuously search to see if a variable x changes from 0 to 1 then the loop stops until variable x changes to 0 again. *yes there is another scene that will change it from 0 to 1. *Edit, I figured this out.
  9. I brought HC2 last year in December. Because of my work I had just little bit more than four months to play with it in all this time. HC2 came with 4.056 firmware and as soon as I took it out of the box and connected to it, it was offering upgrade to 4.070 so I did it. Despite some problems, system was growing pretty fast, but programming was (and still is) quite challenging. Thanks to many members of this forum on their work and help that I manage to do something useful. I use jompa68's Alarm Clock, and Boomx's script to collect data for Netatmo wind and rain gauges. I also use cag014 solution for devices and scenes ID to be stored in global variable, and krikroff's Sonos remote and many many other solution given here by members petergebruers, chaicka and many others. Thank you, thank all of you for all good ideas, solutions, code and help! So, here it is in one picture, and it wouldn't be possible without your help on this forum. It is now on 4.100 with 72 modules included and the rest is in my signature I promised some members here that I will share what I have done and I will keep my promise, but just not yet. I have to go to my work again and I have to leave my "Angelina" to wait for me to come home to clear some bugs in code that I made and to give her more abilities. Luckily for me my wife is very supportive so I get list of her wishes and improvements that I can make every time when I came home. Thank you all and see you soon! Here is updated layout of my Angelina on 28th March 2017: To see it in all it's beauty click on picture, then on "Full size" in lower left corner.
  10. Hello everybody, how should I configure the HC2, so that when the alarm system is armed and a motion is detected, all roller shutters go up. In the alarm control can only be specified that all should go down. What really does not recommend security service here in Germany. Does anyone have a solution for me? I use the HC2 with the latest firmware and the Rollershutter 3 with the latest firmware. Many thanks in advance.
  11. Fibaro is not providing templates for many popular products, because they compete with its own products. It should provide a template builder so users can answer all the questions and create a template for the HC2 that fully supports all the features such as energy monitoring and reading the state/status of the device.
  12. Buongiorno, vorrei produrre della reportistica sugli eventi e relativi valori dei sensori. La reportistica richiesta non è molto complessa e sto cercando di produrla all'interno di una scena accedendo alla tabella eventi (vedi altro post pubblicato ), ma comunque farlo con LUA sembra non essere semplice. c'è modo di farla comunque all'interno di HC2, ma utilizzando un linguaggio di programmazione più potente? Grazie. Lorenzo
  13. I have a scene that gets the sunrise and sunset for the day. I recently noticed that both sunrise and sunset times are not correct. They are about 30min - 1 hour off from what they should be. has anyone else seen this issue? Does anyone know if fibaro is going to fix it? @T.Konopka
  14. Hi! I have setup google home and linked my Fibaro Home Center 2, when I asked Google Assistant to talk to Fibaro, a dude speaks out saying "I couldn’t find any devices." Is it because of software version? Do I need to update to the latest 4.153 beta version?
  15. Witam, mam problem z dostępem zdalnym do mojej centralki. O ile z dostępem lokalnym nie ma problemu z dowolnego konta, tak z dostępem zdalnym s jest ich mnóstwo. Zacznijmy od aplikacji, zalogowana do mojego ID nie działa zdalnie, przelogowana na ID administratora również nie chce się łączyć poza siecią lokalną. Drugie moje pytanie to jak dodać wiecej kont zdalnego dostępu np konta innych domowników tak abym pozostał administratorem a reszta logowała się swoimi kontami ID (na chwilę obecną nawet dodawanie uprawnień na dane maile nie pomaga i po zalogowaniu na Fibaro ID nie widzi żadnych centralek.
  16. Wykonałem eksport danych o temperaturze z panelu fibaro/pl/consumption/temperature.html do pliku tekstowego. wartości temp. są z kropką, ale to nie problem ale wartości czasu opisane jako #timestamp są kompletnie niezrozumiałe i nie dają się sprowadzić do "ludzkiego" formatu w open office, np.: Bojler 1 1574096287 15.5 niedziela kwiecień 1 00:00-00:00 Bojler 1 1574096476 15.62 niedziela październik 7 00:00-00:00 proszę o pomoc
  17. Witam, Od wczoraj zmagam się z problemami z HC2. Sceny nie uruchamiają się automatycznie. Miałem wcześniej dużo działących już scen i dopisałem wczoraj nową i przestało działać. Robiłem kilka restartów i nic. Nie widziałem, żeby firmware się aktualizował. Obecna wersja to 4.530. Jeśli odpalę sceny ręcznie to zadziałają, więc kod jest poprawny. Jakieś pomysły?
  18. Folks, We have a strange situation in our main bedroom. The setup was 3 x TBK home double switch 230V 1 main light and 2 at the bed. 1 Fibaro roller shutter 230V and 2 vision security window sensors. 1 Fibaro multisensor, eurotronic radiator thermostat and 1 everspring moving sensor (outside very close) Distance to the HC-2 app. 5 meters, one wall, one floor. Everything worked fine untill the TBK home double switch for the main light disapeared from the system . Suddenly I lost as well communication with some other units in the room. The right window sensor, the everspring moving sensor and the thermostat. We replaced the TBK with a normal switch (since it was not the first time that we had problems with it) and replaced all the batteries in the units that did't communicate anymore. After a reconfiguration of the mesh network and with some exculding and including we had most of the units back online. Only strange thing is that the right window sensor is visible in the system but not when I want to select it in a scene as you can see in the screenshots. I am logged in as "superuser" rebooted the system and have no clue anymore what to do. Sorry for the long post but I want to inform you as good as possible. Anybody a suggestion?
  19. Hi to you all! Maybe you know that I'm a critical HC2 user since 2013. In short, as I mention here I was feeling the Fibaro was holding me back in possibilities, privacy and security. So I started to investigate to get more control over what I think was important to me. I said I would abandon the HC2. The good news, I will not (for now). After extensive testing and trying to find a proper configuration, I found a way to implement the HC2, demanding my needs and wishes concerning: Security Privacy Possibilities Time to spend (re-configuring 200+ devices, 50 scenes and 30 Virtual Devices) The solution I'm implementing is a Raspberry Pi 3 with Node-Red for all communications from the HC2. In short, this means using the HC2 solely as a Z-wave controller and automation gateway. Setup: - The Node-Red will receive commands from the HC2 by an encrypted (https) and password protected connection. At this point it's still one way by sending from the HC2 to Node-Red. - The HC2 is (will be) blocked from internet access. Internet access to the HC2 will be done by VPN. - All other domotica devices are on a separate subnet (VLAN). - All messages (email/push/Telegram) is processed by Node-Red. (disabling all Fibaro 'services'). Example: An alarm is breached: - HC2 will send a message by https to Node-Red. - Node-Red sends IP-Camera snapshots to own email-server, push-account or private Telegram-bot. - Node-Red will check my Ubiquiti manage-switch to check if someone is at home (Mobile phone present in LAN) at will send result to push or Telegram. For sending data to Node-Red a scene is used with content of 5 Global Variable, triggered by one: SC_Nred_VarName (Name variable to send. used as trigger, must be written as last) SC_Nred_VarVal (Value to send) SC_Nred_VarType (not used yet, could be used for sending the type of value, like string, date, time etc.) SC_Nred_VarLog (data for storing data in Node-Red logfiles) SC_Nred_VarPath (path to the Node-Red http-receive-node, default /hc2) The scene code (Beta code 20170526): --[[ %% properties %% events %% globals SC_Nred_VarName --]] -- -- Initialisation of user settings (change if necessary) -- -- Global variables (has to be added manually in HC2 variables panel) local globVarName = 'SC_Nred_VarName'; -- Name of global variable to send (trigger!) local globVarValue = 'SC_Nred_VarVal'; -- Value of global variable to send local globVarType = 'SC_Nred_VarType'; -- Type of global variable to send local globVarLog = 'SC_Nred_VarLog'; -- Logmessage to send local globVarPath = 'SC_Nred_VarPath'; -- Node-Red http-node path to interact with -- Node-Red server connections credentials local nredIp = '192.168.x.x'; -- Node-RED server IP-address local nredPort = 1880; -- Node-Red server port number local nredUser = 'HC2'; -- Node-Red user used to change variables local nredPass = 'XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX'; -- Node-Red password of used user -- Node-Red server credentials options: true = Enable, false = Disable local nredUseLogin = false; -- TODO!!

  20. I have set up a relay switch on my garage door, and also have a Vision ZG8101 angle sensor mounted on the garage door. This works, but the interface is not very "elegant" Does anyone have any tips on how i could set it up so that i have an "up" and a "down" button, and also indication that shows in a good way if the door is open or closed? I would appriciate all help, my Fibaro knowledge is very basic, and i have little or no experience with LUA and VD.
  21. I have an HC2 that is running latest version (official) of SW 4.560. After that the mains was cut to the whole house the HC2 does not reboot and start operate. All LEDs flshing from right to left. After several attemts to toogle the power button on the HC2 it finally restarted properly. It is a serious problem if the HC2 does not restart after a power cut in the house Advice please
  22. Hi all. Does anyone know if the Aeotec Gen7 Door/Windows sensor will have full support for the Fibaro HC2. I have just included it and will only pick on the contact sensor and not the gyroscope. I am hoping there will be an official template released for this. If anyone can help out, that would be ace! id-0371-0002-0007-01-00--.zip
  23. I have a fibaro motion sensor and it keeps detecting motion even though there is none about every 10 seconds. turned off all scenes that interact with the motion sensor - still does the same thing. I restarted my HC2 - does the same thing. Motion sensor on latest firmware. *the only time it stops for a while is when the lux in the room goes to 0. but then it will detect motion again. **I do have the sensitivity really low, when I raise it above 20 it seams to go back to "normal" I don't want this at 20 rather it be 8-10. I have two other fibaro motion sensors set to 8-10 with no problems. @T.Konopka do you know what this could be? a bug?
  24. Hello out there I have got a HCL with a lot of devices (about 60) and now I want to turn the System to HC2. Is it possible to easy migrate all devices to the new System? Without a complete re-inclusion? I do not want to pull every socket and every power-/ blind-switch out of the walls to exclude und new include them. The scenes are not that important, I could write them complete new on the new HC. Important for me is not to open all sockets and switches and also to do the tricky inclusion of the window-sensors. Hope there is a way for it... Thanks to everybody who could help or give me a hit!
