  1. After having done a few scenes (LUA scripts) I am a little confused by some of the options offered by the HC2 interface. Here are three examples: 1. The overview Some of this is obvious, like the scene name and the number of instances currently running. But why do the last two scenes, both running, show different run/stop buttons? And what does the on/off slider signify? I have successfully started scene 3, even though it shows "off". I have also tried to set it to "on", but it goes back to "off". Question: How are these two buttons, on/off and run/stop to be interpreted and used? 2. The detailed view This view raises several questions: Category: Is this category ever used for anything? Max running instances: In my LUA scripts I normally include tests like this: if fibaro:countScenes() > 1 then ... to abort the script if more than one is running. Does that make this number insignificant? Run scene Manual/Automatic: The trigger in the LUA script (or a lack of trigger) dictates how the scene is started. For a standard manual script without trigger, what difference does the man/auto setting make? And for a script with %%autostart is it necessary to set the Run scene selector to Automatic as well? Do not allow alarm...: My interpretation is that all scenes that are alarm related should check this box, all other scenes should not. By alarm related, I mean scenes that are triggered by an alarm. Is this good practice?
  2. Hi team, I have been trying to work with a fibaro door contact and time of day being the criteria to turn on some devices. Unfortunately, it is taking the door contact and for some reason ignoring the criteria for the time of the day. Here are a couple of screenshots of the settings for your to look at.
  3. it's possible to integrate HC2 with an ip-camera by specifying URL:s for the video stream and controlling it with left/right/up/down URL:s etc. This is one-way communication from HC2 to the camera. Now, some cameras can be armed/disarmed, which means that it will start to record when it detects motion. The idea is that this should trigger an alarm in HC2. My idea is to have a scene which can arm/disarm the camera and then, when the camera detects motions it should trigger a scene in HC2. Has anyone figured out how to trigger a scene in HC2 when the camera detects motion? Is there any kind of support for this? Also, is it possible to arm/disarm your camera through HC2?
  4. Jeg driver og setter opp scenes for ID-Lock 150, og med varsling for ulike brukere på døra. Det funker bra med f.eks. pushvarsel når brukeren taster inn PIN kode, men jeg får ikke til å sette opp varsel for bruk av RFID brikke. I scenen kan du velge "PIN entered by", og så i neste boks velge "RFID brikke XXXXX". Jeg laget en scene hvor første valget var PIN entered by, og så i neste blokk PIN Kode XXXX, satte opp et OR argument med samme opplegg, men da valgte jeg RFID brikke XXXX. Får varsel når PIN kode trykkes - men ikke når RFID brikken brukes.
  5. I'm completely new to scene creator's, and i Wonder if someone could help me out With a start... I would be happy if someone could post me some examples of Block scenes for: A wall plug turning off after a period of time, and then send SMS/push Notification to a cell phone.... Door changes status from locked to open - turn one/several lights on and send SMS/push Notification to cell phone This would be a start for me
  6. Hi, I create a pop-up notification, which works well, except the button does not trigger my scene. I double and tripple checked the scene, add more or less buttons, tried different scenes, but nothing works. If I hit the button on the pop-up it only disappears, but no scene is triggered. Is there anyone can help on it? Do I need to set anything else in the HC2? or the pop-up scene? My scene is as follows: I also confirm that the scene for the button is working. --[[ %% properties %% events %% globals --]] local imgUrl = '' local currentDate = os.date("*t"); --[[ if (fibaro:countScenes() > 1) then fibaro:abort() end --]] -- opening the pop-up window, HomeCenter.PopupService.publish({ -- title – required field, title = 'Laundry', -- subtitle – optional field, subtitle = string.format("%02d:%02d:%02d | April %02d, %04d", currentDate.hour, currentDate.min, currentDate.sec, currentDate.day, currentDate.year), -- Title of the pop-up content (optional), contentTitle = 'Laundry is ready', -- Content of the pop-up – required field, contentBody = 'Please confirm', -- Image of the notification (acceptable formats - .jpg, .png, .bmp), img = imgUrl, -- Notification type: ('Info' – blue color, 'Success' – green color, 'Warning' – yellow color, 'Critical' – red color) type = 'Info', -- defying buttons – ‘caption’ – text of the button, sceneId – Id of scene that will be started after clicking on button (0 – no scene will be started), you can defy up to 3 buttons, in default there will be a button with ‘Ok’ buttons = { { caption = 'OK', sceneId = 285 } } }) thanks for helping
  7. when creating a scene I get the message 403 ACCESS FORBIDDEN. None of mye scenes are working anymore, and I cannot create new ones. I have deleted the old scenes and restarted the Home center lite but does not help. Any solutions anyone??
  8. Hello seniors and comrades, i have a virtual device for iEast stream pro and i would like to Use the Playlist Function buttons to play Music in my Scenes but i have no idea how to do it. i don't know how to make and add music in the playlists. i can only play through USB Button function. i have tried searches but nothing, and this forum is my only hope i got. Lua Code in the Playlists: -- Play Preset #1 local command = "/httpapi.asp?command=MCUKeyShortClick:1"; local selfId = fibaro:getSelfId(); local ip = fibaro:get(selfId, 'IPAddress'); local port = fibaro:get(selfId, 'TCPPort'); local connection = Net.FHttp(ip, port); connection:GET(command) fibaro:call(selfId, "setProperty", "ui.labelState.value", "[preset 1]"); See the attached is my VD for iEast Stream Pro Looking forward for your kindness and help. Thank you all.
  9. Ho Folks, I have a simple question about the number of running instances of a scene. I have a basic scene which triggers every hour between 14:30-22:45 'and' if the lux level is <10 (screen shot attached). Can anyone explain to me why there are running instances of this scene outside of the parameters? Right now it's 11:50AM, the lux is 630, but I already have 2 running instances of the scene. Am I doing something wrong?? Any help welcome.
  10. I found this image in the knowledge base but I can not "easily" add any activity the my harmony hub to the scene. The only way is via LUA?
  11. Hi - This may be a proper newbie question but when I create a block scene I don't see the on/off slider option - just RUN and STOP. Thx
  12. Hi, Running 4.180 version of HC2 SW. But, I have noticed the phenomena also on the 4.170. Not sure about earlier versions though. Situation/Scenario: 1. Leaving home for a week to business travel. 2. Cautious about risks for lightning - pulling all electronics apart from "absolute bare minimum". 3. HC2 is using regular network cable. 4. As HC2 is to run during absence, but rest of network is not, cable between HC2 network outlet and rest of network (switch, router etc) is disconnected to avoid "rolling lightning bolts" still hitting electronics just because they are physically connected. Expected outcome: Any scene triggered automatically, based on time or other local value/setting/trigger device, should still run. Actual outcome: Scenes not triggered automatically. Extra information: Once network cable is connected to switch/router, scene activation starts to work again as per expectation. Please let me know if you need more data to trouble-shoot this phenomena. Kindly, DrPepper
  13. I try to get some data from a http:request in a LUA scene. I have the following code: local strLonoID = fibaro:getGlobalValue ("LonoID"); print ("LonoID = ", strLonoID) local Temp1 = fibaro:getGlobalValue ("LonoTemp1"); print ("LonoTemp1 = ", Temp1) local http = net.HTTPClient() http:request('http://lonobox.com/api/index.php?id=100003523', { success = function(current) --fibaro:debug(json.encode(current)) --werkt if current.status == 200 then print('Data Receiving: ', current.status) -- werkt print('CurrentData: ', current.data) -- werkt local result = json.decode(current.data) print ('Result :', result) --Local temp2 = result.(["CurrentData"]["200003523"]["temperature"]) --local temp2 = result.200003523.temperature --print ('Temp2 :', temp2) -- else fibaro:debug(current.status) end end }) and i have as output: [DEBUG] 17:13:32: LonoID = 100003523 [DEBUG] 17:13:32: LonoTemp1 = 2 [DEBUG] 17:13:32: Data Receiving: 200 [DEBUG] 17:13:32: CurrentData: [[],{"200003523":{"temperature":"23.2","humidity":"46"}},{"400004105":{"wind-speed":"0.2","wind-gust":"1.5","wind-direction":"SE"}},{"100003523":{"barometer":"1014"}}] [DEBUG] 17:13:32: Result : table: 0x9c98200 I want to store the values in global variables. I do not know how to proceed from here. Thx in advance. Fons
  14. I have a New HC Lite, and i have started to add Devices and setting scenes. I try first With a motion sensor, that i want to start a wall plug. I have created a scene, see photo. When i start the scene using the play button, the wall plug turn on light, and after 60 Seconds it turn off. But - when there is movement in front of the motion sensor - nothing happens, light will not turn on. Often the play button is also in pause, even if i have put X that it will not allow alarm to stop scene. Anyone who can give me hint or tips for what i am doing wrong here? I want the system to og on "loop" so every time the motion sensor is trigged the light will turn on.
  15. Hello, I just introduce myself as a newbee into the world of the Fibaro HC2. I received today my HC2 en try to setup my system. I created some scenes and like to put a scene on and off with a "ON/OFF" button the way the scene is deactivated and swithed off when I press the "OFF" button and activated and switched on when I press the "ON" button. I like to use this ON/OFF button via the Fibaro App on my smarthphone and via the Fibaro KeyFob. I read something about a procedure to work with a virtual device button, can someone explain how this works.Of course ny other solution is welcome! I look forward to some reflections to help me out as a newbee. Nice greetings,
  16. Hello Fibaro team, Internet as we speak is transforming towards more and more use of HTTPS and TSL. My question is simply, is there a timeplan for HC2 to transfer from HTTP to HTTPS also on the local site access solution? I understand there can be difficulties with the certificates...... For example, I would prefer to send an HTTPS request to HC2 for starting scenes or altering status on a device, where username and password are protected with TSL transmission. Kindly, DrPepper
  17. Hi, Wondering if there is a way to mix scenes and devices in one tab perhaps the overview screen ? I want my elderly mother inlaw to access lighting and a couple of devices. I can do what i need through a scene, there's only a couple of switches she needs access to and I have an iphone kicking around. my thoughts were to have just one screen with scenes required and a couple of devices, but I don't want her to have to scroll through tabs etc .. I know I can restrict what she sees with her access but can we mix them up any way ? If not, I'll have to run a local web page for her and just have the commands on that I suppose. Cheers, al.

    All about icons

    Version 3.1


    Did some rework on Fibaro and Aeon sensors icons and few others The stand alone sensor icon actually has a little human figure stand still (white color) to use as part of inactive motion icon. Added linear icons
  19. Hi I am trying to set automatic scenes in my bathrooms so lights will come on a certain level depending on the time of day which I have setup using simple scenes - example below: This works fine and i have variable to switch from day and night, however I would like the ability to override this as the kids get annoyed when they are in the bath and the lights go off. is there a way to change the variable on pressing the light switch button On which would change the variable to override and then when the light switch if switched off change the variable back to day or night based on timings? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  20. Solved. stupid mistake by myself.....
  21. Dear All, I've installed 3 Fibaro Smoke sensors fgsd-002 throughout my home and have them connected to Domoticz; allong with some other zwave devices. Now i am a bit stuck with regards to integrating them in scenes i want to make. Do i have to make virtual switches for them, if yes, which type and how to know you did it right? Are they setup from the factory to send some kind of notification to domoticz triggering what? I suppose many home automators are using the software, also integrating Fibaro sensors? Tips for getting to know the software/tutorials for a non-IT background are most welcome! Cheers, Q
  22. Hey guys, I thought it would be a nice idea to share some of the new scenes which people are using. This way it could potentially give people inspiration on what the system can do while also helping people with similar scenes to perfect them of use them in a more efficient way. So I suppose I will start... Today I have put together a lighting scene, it took quite a while because it's two scenes per room. I started by adding 3 variables called time: Day, Dusk & Night. I have set a scene to trigger the variable depending on the time, so Daytime starts at 8am, Dusk becomes active at dusk (set by Fibaro's time clock) and finally night becomes active at 10pm. The break down is: Day - No lights Dusk - Lights at 100% brightness Night - Lights at 10% brightness I have attached the block scenes below. I can't wait to see what you have all been up to with your HC.
  23. Hi, It would be great to have a LUA function collection (maybe as a new Panel?) where we could store reusable functions, making them globally available. I'm doing a lot of custom automation and ended up having a collection of functions that get copy/pasted in scenes but as any developer would find, this is very error prone and makes maintenance extremely problematic. It would be great if we could create new functions as part of a collection namespace and have them available in all scenes. Any change to one of the functions would propagate to all usages. As a MVP for this feature, even a simple editor somewhere where we could drop all functions would be fine, as long as those functions are available in scenes. If there is a better way of currently achieving this, please let me know and close this topic. Much appreciated, Romeo
  24. Like several other users, I struggle to customize the Fibaro (iPad) mobile app to suit my needs. The graphical looks is superb, but we are in great need of better configuration and shortcut functionalities. Too many clicks are needed to access the most frequently used devices, scenes or rooms. Too much fancy graphics that will impress my friends, but confuse and annoy my wife. The widgets are however a start and bring scenes to the immediately accessible surface, but it's only a start. Here are a few improvement proposals (or questions, if I have missed some already available obvious solutions). (1) Why limit the number of available widget slots to 6 ? My iPad has a huge fancy empty dark blue screen. I would gladly sacrifice the energy graph or some other elements of graphically pleasing looks but dubious information value. (2) I need to get some of my VDs to the surface. Widgets are limited to Scenes. Any chance I have missed something? (3) I need the icons of the widgets to reflect status. I have found no way to dynamically change this. LUA fibaro: getSelfId() can only pick up VD IDs as far as I been able to confirm. Any solutions out there? Just one simple example: I have a great VD which changes the heating scheme from "Scheduled" to "Holiday" to "Home" status. VDs change icons dynamically. No way to bring this to the dashboard. A bit irritating.
  25. Hi I have problem making scenes for my light outside and hope someone can help me I have one dimmer, one motion detection and light sensor. When it gets dark the light should turn on 30% with the dimmer. If there are some motion the light should go to 90% on the dimmer. After 3 min after last motion it should go again to 30% on the dimmer. When it gets bright again the light should turn off. Gunnar H.
