  1. Has anyone found a simple solution to play internet radio stations from like Tunein? if so can you share your VD. thanks
  2. Hi, I am looking for some good Virtual device reference, which has intutive interface. Show in attched image. Thanks
  3. Perhaps not the right place for this question, but figured since it's related to beta testing of a new version, it's close enough. Please move otherwise! I am a happy fibaro user with some 40 different devices, and something I've been missing is the possibility to add virtual devices as a widget. Over the last years the app has evolved and more widget options has been added, but not VD. Maybe it's not that common to use VDs as much, or some other technical reason for not supporting it. But for me I don't see a need to have individual switches and dimmers as a widget, then I would have 10s of them.. With that kind of "desktop" I might as well get an iPhone So, is i possible to add this for a coming version of the Android app? Now I use third-party (imperihome) on the side only for the VD widgets.. And would love to get rid of that app and have all I need with the fibaro app.
  4. Implement Sonos VD using node-http-API running on raspberry PI The following should help if you want to implement an sonos VD that leverages the node sonos http api by jishi The post consists in two parts Setting up the API on a raspberry pi Creating the VD and summary of other uses of the API and some sample code I use **I'll structure this in a better format in the coming weeks but for now it should be sufficient** I have tested this with Play1, 3, 5 (older version) ZP100, ZP80, ZP90. I don’t have a sonos soundbar or sub but from reading other forums it should work fine for those I intend to use this more in ‘Press Button’ mode rather than directly as a remote control but it should be good either way. You can also select what appears in HC2 UI by clicking the ‘main’ checkbox on the appropriate VD button ( I think you can have one button, one label and one slider) Credit & Reuse: This work draws on the work of many many people from both this forum as well as other forums. Without these people and the work they have done as well as what they have helped me learn over the last 12 months this wouldn't have been created. Like all VD’s please feel free to constructively criticise or modify it to meet your needs STEP1: Setup api on node.js device: This VD requires jishi’s node-sonos-http-api to be installed on a node.js capable device. This can be a RPi, a NAS or something similar. Details on where to get the code and install can be found on Git - https://github.com/jishi/node-sonos-http-api You will also find an excellent blog/issue tracker at the link above for any issues you encounter I have mine installed on a Rpi Added Feb 5th The fastest way I found to get up and running on a PI if you're unsure and just want to try it (takes about 15 minutes) Use the sonos-api precompiled rpi image at http://jishi.github.io/node-sonos-http-api/ (apply to blank sd card) when you login over SSH (with something like putty) the password is root Map a network drive or Start Run to \\<IP of Pi>\flash click apps folder and you'll see the sonos-http-api folder Get an API from VoiceRSS and create a settings.json file (details in the post) and drop it into the sonos-http-api folder reboot and that's it - test through browser with something like http://<ip-of-Pi:5005/<playername>/Say/Hello If you want to upgrade to the latest api release Download the latest zip from https://github.com/jishi/node-sonos-http-api (green button on right) In the flash folder rename the sonos-http-api to -old Rename what you downloaded to to sonos-http-api Drop in your settings.json file SSH into the Pi - login = root cd /flash/apps cd sonos-http-api npm install --production when finished reboot DOCKER from @riemers (thanks ) You could also use docker Some nas systems include docker too (synology) from the gui. Using docker is easy and simple to give to someone else too, work on Pi3 too. For node-sonos-api there is a docker image https://github.com/chrisns/docker-node-sonos-http-api saves you the hassle of installing all dependency's, assuming you have some knowledge with linux. # Edit - additional observation - I like the Synology NAS option but mine doesn't reboot in the event of a power outage. The Rpi does reboot. If you use a NAS it might be good to use a UPS or find a way to reboot after an outage Once you have this setup you are ready to move on to Step 2 STEP 2 : Import the VD, you will need one VD per sonos zone node-sonos-api VD.vfib Name - The zone name needs to be the same as what it is in native Sonos (try and avoid chars such as /,etc) Spaces are okay IP Address: This is the IP of the device where the api is installed (This is NOT the IP address of the sonos zone) Port: Leave at 5005 (can be changed it needed, see git above) STEP 3 : Configure Play, Stop, Repeat, Shuffle, etc – this should work as is The parts you may want to modify are as follows => Volume I opted for the vol + / vol – as opposed to the slider as I find the sliders difficult to use on a tablet Vol + / - operates in increments of 2%. This is easy to change in the url string. The Vol 10% button is also easy to change => Favourites You will need to modify this to your favourites and how they are named in your sonos setup I would advise simplifying these names in the native Sonos setup as much as you can. Spaces are okay, you just need to use %20 where you have a space in a name If you need more of less favourites, please add/delete buttons as required => Playlists I don’t really use them but these are easily enough added in a similar way to the favourites above. => Line-in selection You can create one button for each line in option on your setup for any connect/connect amp or Zp unit.. (I have 4 on my setup) You will need to get the UUID for the zone that has the line in physically connected to it. You can get the UUID of that zone by viewing the topology of the zone with the topology url. (drop it into chrome/ff) http://[IP of any of your zone]:1400/status/topology The format of the url and you will need to change the last numerical string for your own UUID. => Grouping Zones I have included two examples of grouping and ungrouping The url format is simple and easy to read. below are two examples that were setup on the kitchen zone where I wanted to group the Playroom zone two it and play what was playing on the kitchen zone Group - [playroom joining kitchen and playing kitchen music] Ungroup - [playroom leaving kitchen zone] You could also include a group all and an ungroup all by stacking the commands from each zone under one button. There are also options to control volume of grouped zones if you like but I haven't explored that yet Beyond this… The api is very extensive and still undergoing development. There are other functions in the api that could be used and might be worth a glance depending on your system and patterns of use I'll update the post this evening with the actual VD as I can't seem to export it remotely. The node.js api will need to be installed first before the VD will be of any use. Hopefully it will be of use to some people Thanks -Frank Update: Adding VD file Adding some extra information The api is very extensive and seems to keep growing I use it for mainly behind the scenes control rather than me clicking the vd/scenes buttons manually If you look at http://zone_ip:5005/room_name/state for any of your players you’ll see all the state json info and what’s possible to control/trigger from Pretifying the json will show it's structure better { "currentTrack": { "title": "x-sonosapi-stream:s2846?sid=254&flags=32", "albumArtUri": "\/getaa?s=1&u=x-sonosapi-stream%3as2846%3fsid%3d254%26flags%3d32", "duration": 0, "uri": "x-sonosapi-stream:s2846?sid=254&flags=32", "type": "radio", "absoluteAlbumArtUri": "http:\/\/\/getaa?s=1&u=x-sonosapi-stream%3as2846%3fsid%3d254%26flags%3d32" }, "nextTrack": { "artist": "", "title": "", "album": "", "albumArtUri": "", "duration": 0, "uri": "" }, "volume": 10, "mute": false, "trackNo": 1, "elapsedTime": 651, "elapsedTimeFormatted": "00:10:51", "playbackState": "PLAYING", "playMode": { "repeat": "none", "shuffle": false, "crossfade": false } } I have a VD that shows me the status of all my players (attached) main scene code (just add labels local device = fibaro:getSelfId();

fibaro:setGlobal("ActiveMusicZones", zoneCount); fibaro:call(device,"setProperty","ui.activeZones.value",zoneCount); Three of my zones use power amps (the are sonos connects) and I use the ‘playstate’ to turn the amp on / off when required. That’s the code at the bottom of the vd At one stage I was even displaying the image (radio station, music album) on an openremote UI using the uri part of the state json. I use the VoiceRSS TTS on teh http api but there are others. That all that was there when I found it and it worked well I have TTS to tell me “welcome home”, “good night”, "gate opening/closing", "garage door opening/closing" and all the usual stuff but I vary the volume it at night so it doesn’t wake everybody up. I intend this expand this feedback out so If we come home and the alarm went off it would tell me or that the washing machine has finished, the humidity is still too high in the bathroom and I should open the window (or that a fan was turned on) or some HC2 system info like the available memory went beyond certain thresholds, temp in a room rose or dropped, My siemens alarm is connected to my HC2 and I keep track of all the status of the alarm zones and when we press the “Leaving Home” button it checks the alarm zones and if one or many are open, it will TTS the open alarm zones in the hall sonos so we know where to go and close. Same thing when we go to bed at night. I found that each of my zones have different volume levels that work at night and during the day. I’ll be using my HomeTable (different topic) to store this info for each zones but it can written directly into the scene/vd. (This is what the the following code is for) I also plan on using a central TTS engine (simple a scene that take a zone/message and vol) so I can TTS more easily to any player. For now I have specific TTS code on a per player basis. I leverage the global variables that @Sankotronic Weather Basic VD populates and a scene that allows me to send the current weather (temp, humidity, wind speed direction, etc) as a TTS to our bedroom in the morning as well as the temp of the house as part of our wake up routine The API has a presets concept. This allows the user to pre-define a set of grouped players, source and volume. This is a file on the rpi and is referenced by a single command rather than starting one zone and grouping other zones. An example of its structure is as follows ... { "players": [ { "roomName": "Landing", "volume": 0 }, { "roomName": "Bed_MasterL", "volume": 0 }, { "roomName": "Bed_LE", "volume": 0 }, { "roomName": "Bed_Frank", "volume": 0 } ], "pauseOthers": false, "favorite": "96FM" } You may notice that the volume is set as 0 because I use another scene to slowly raise the volume so we are not woken to the sharp shock to a loud song. This simple vd button code is what I use to slowly raise the volume slowly local device = fibaro:getSelfId(); local zonename = fibaro:getName(device); local ipaddress = fibaro:getValue(device, "IPAddress"); local port = fibaro:getValue(device, "TCPPort"); sonos = Net.FHttp(ipaddress, port); for v = 1, 10 do response = sonos:GET("/Bed_Frank/volume/"..v.."") fibaro:debug("vol= "..v.."") fibaro:sleep(1000) end I use this for morning music upstairs and downstairs as well as when the kids go to bed. (changing the presets on the rpi requires a restart of the api - i normally just reboot the pi ) Watch out for radio favorites and playlists - try and not have spaces in the names on sonos and you should have no issue calling them ADDED - Jan 21st Creating a single button on a VD to cycle through favorites or playlist instead of using 1 per favorite. Every time you click the button it selects the next favorite. I have it limited to 5 favorites but this is easily adjusted. I store the favorite in my HomeTable but it could also be a global variable. I use an array to decode the numerical value stored globally into the actual favorite so I can append to the sonos api call. This will need to be adjusted to suit your system VD button code .... local device = fibaro:getSelfId(); local ipaddress = fibaro:getValue(device, "IPAddress"); local port = fibaro:getValue(device, "TCPPort"); local jT = json.decode(fibaro:getGlobalValue("HomeTable")) -- Get the current favorite number stored, increment by 1 and if > 5 set back to 1 local f = tonumber(jT.Landing_Stairs.RadFav) + 1 if f > 5 then f = 1 end -- Store the new favorite jT.Landing_Stairs.RadFav = f fibaro:setGlobal("HomeTable", json.encode(jT)) -- Array for the favorites fav = {[1] = "4FM", [2] = "96FM", [3] = "Calm", [4] = "Heart", [5] = "Red_FM"} -- Execute the sonos conmmand sonos = Net.FHttp(ipaddress, port); response = sonos:GET("/Landing/favorite/"..fav[f]..""); I also reflect this on a status label on the VD. -- Get favorite stored globally local f = tonumber(jT.Landing_Stairs.RadFav) -- Translate into favorite name to be displayed fav = {[1] = "96FM", [2] = "4FM", [3] = "Calm", [4] = "Heart", [5] = "Red_FM"} -- fav[f] represents the name. I apppend to otehr date and display in one label local status = " "..fav[f].." | "..jTS.playbackState.." | Volume "..jTS.volume.."%" fibaro:call(device,"setProperty","ui.status.value", status); This display at the top of the VD doesn't account is somebody changes the favorite from the native sonos app. I'll add code later to keep alignment between what is selected and what is stored in the global variable, This is what it looks like on my setup that is still a work in progress x Please see post 163 on this topic on how to get the VD icons dynamic for radio station or line in
  5. Hi, I am wondering about the properties of a Virtual Device and how they can be accessed and changed. For instance, if you want to change the icon of a VD you can use a statement like this: fibaro:call(100, "setProperty", "currentIcon", 200); If you want to update a label text you would do: fibaro:call(100, "setProperty", "ui.label1.value", "Label text" ); To my question then: Does anyone know of a complete list of properties applicable to a Virtual Device? For instance: devices which report power consumption use the footer area to display current power usage. Can this area be accessed in a VD too? Someting along the lines of: fibaro:call(100, "setProperty", "ui.footer.value", "Footer text" ); I am reading in Fibaro's documentation of the REST API about how to extract a list of all VDs and their properties/data. There are apparently properties like "caption", and "buttonIcon". The question is if and how these can be set via LUA code. Thanks for any tips and hints. /Per
  6. Hi possible interested users, I just inserted HUE bridge onto my system and becouse plugins are not suitable for automation, I looking for VD I find one - not VD but instruction to create VD: http://www.siio.com/lightshadow/philips-hue-virtual-module-in-fibaro-hc2-4742/ Actually this instruction need to some correction so I create VD and modified this a bit and saved as vfib some important modifications: * I created global variable to hold user key: Hue_User * I create global variable to hold starting number for icon set: Hue_IconStart * I changed port number to hardcoded: 80 * I changed VD port field to be used as light-id (lamp number) * Additionally I added label field on top of VD UI to get lamp name from bridge Result - You can add same VD several time - one for each lamp You need to control (I've started with 5 lamps in different rooms) For each lamp add one VD, configure IP address and lamp id (into port number) One more decision point: initially I had plan to put bridge IP into global variable. I had to change this idea and leave IP as config parameter for VD. The reason is that on my second house I probably need several bridges with different IP Unfortunateli responding to siio.com page fails (they have some error on page preventing responses) NB! attached file is not mine origin - this is created using instructions (ideas) from SIIO and only corrected. required icon set You find from referenced siio.com page HUE-Bulb-HS.vfib
  7. Witam, Nie znalazlem do tej pory funkcji ktora wg mnie powinna byc podstawowa w tego typu automatyce domowe jaka oferuje Fibaro. Wiekszosc oswietlenia ktore mamy dotyczy zewnetrznej czesci naszego domu, i prawie kazde rozwiazanie oswietlenia zewnetrznego wiarze sie z koniecznoscia instalacji czujnika zmierzchu. Nikt recznie nie chodzi i nie wlacza swiatel zewnetrznych, ani nikt nie ustawia timerow zmieniajac godziny kazdego miesiaca bo na to nie ma czasu. Pytanie brzmi: Jak prosto stworzyc scene, ktora pobierala by informacje o wschodzie i zachodzie slonca z danej lokalizacji co wyzwalalo by przy tej zaleznosci oswietlenie fasadowe i gasilo je przy wschodzie slonca. Znalazlem ciekawy plugin czy virtual device Sunrise & Set v1.4.0 Zainstalowalem, probowalem zaimplementowac w scenie opartej na bloki ale na tym koncza sie moje umiejetnosci. Nie moge ustalic IF suset then lights on. Poniewaz plugin nie jest widoczny jako urzadzenie wyzwalajace. Jendakze sa widoczne zmienne dotyczace tego pluginu ktore nazywaja sie tak ze ciezko dokladnie wiedziec do czego dotycza. Siedzialem ile moglem i testowalem kazda z opcji ale niestety sciena odpalona recznie dziala ale automatycznie sie nie uruchamia. Czy ktos moglby mi z tym pomoc? albo moze jest inne gotowe rozwiazanie dla stworzenia tej sceny? Dziekuje uprzejmie za pomoc. Pozdrawiam serdecznie
  8. Hello, I've recently moved to the ZWave world when I bought a HC2 and some devices. But I still have some i Nexa and Telldus switch devices I can use outside and have not found any suitable ZWave ones. Therefore the idea to control the Nexa/Telldus devices using HTTP requests to the API of Telldus Live. Just simple things like turn on and turn off the switches. The IDs of the switches I thought I could input into the LUA code of each Virtual Device to keep it simple. What I don't seem to find any good information about is the whole Oauth thing with authorization requests, access tokens and stuff until I can finally to the request regarding the switches. Has anybody any clues or hopefully already has done this successfully? I found some documentation on the APIs at Telldus: http://api.telldus.com/documentation/phpLive (only PHP examples I don't really understand, strange language PHP) and then some more 3rd party doc at https://market.mashape.com/warting/telldus Need help/directions both on how to do the http-requests in LUA and the more Telldus API specifics. Once I understand those important things I'm sure I can get rest of the VD to work, it should be little more than on/off buttons and maybe some status message... We'll see once I get there. Look forward to some input and/or experience in the matter... Kind regards Bjorn
  9. I have VD sonos remote installed but is not working Version 1.0.0 does notting Version 1.0.1 gifs the playing number and gives volume level. Butons are not working. Is there a new version? Is there a other solution. I want to use de VD to control the sonos in scenes (not the interface like the sonos plugin) - select number or playlist to play (example : Alarm sounds) - play number -stop playing Anny sugestions?
  10. If a temperature sensor is installed in a room, that one is selected as temperature for the room (displayed at several places on the UI and used in heat control or so). Is is possible to have a value of virtual device defined as temperature of the room? Sorry, I found another item about this subject. This can be closed.

W załączonym pliku oprócz kodu urządzenia znajduje się komplet ikon, które należy najpierw dodać do centralki, a potem w kodzie urządzenia wpisać odpowiednie numerki. Te numery są indywidualne i niekoniecznie takie w każdej centrali. Żeby zobaczyć jaki numer odpowiada jakiej ikonie, w okienku zmiany ikony należy nacisnąć na ikonie prawy klawisz myszy i wybrać "otwórz grafikę w nowej karcie". Żądany numer zobaczymy w adresie strony. Jako główną ikonę przypisujemy tą szarą z numerkiem 0.
  12. Hi @ALL, @FIBARO, @T.Konopka, when deleting a scene the browser GUI returns me to 'fibaro/<language>/scenes/', as it should be. But when deleting a VD then browser GUI returns 'fibaro/<language>/devices/virtual_new.html' which is definition of new device that i didn't want to make at all! I think that browser GUI shoul'd return 'fibaro/<language>/devices/' as it does with the scenes.
  13. hello all. i have just bought some Sonos speakers and wanted to integrate with home center 2. first part is to control then second part text-to-speech workaround whilst i was going through the forums i found the info i needed scattered around different threads and the original thread was very long, so i have thought i might make it easier by creating a small quick guide: First thing is all credit to the virtual device goes to krikroff for the VD, original thread here - http://forum.fibaro.com/index.php?showtopic=12344 I have created a video demo instead as it was easier to show rather than write. video link is as above. enjoy... download link here: http://www.yorkshireautomation.co.uk/downloads/sonos.zip
  14. Finally I have found a way to nicely format the label on virtual device. It works perfectly on HC2 UI, but it totally distorted on mobile devices (Android and iOS). Here how it looks on UI: On mobile you can see nothing, just the beginning of the format Fibaro team or anyone any idea why it works this way? Any workaround?
  15. Sometimes you can do things in a (LUA) scene or in the main loop of a VD. I know that programming differs a little on some items like HTTP but in general you can use the same code. Currently I have a VD that reads a json file from a PI, stores the acquired data in global variables and presents the data in the VD GUI. Next I have a scene that processes the data from the global variables and does some steering of dimmers. Is this from efficiency point of view a good method? the alternative is to put all the calculations and steering which is now done in the scene, in the main loop of the VD. is there a general rule that the processing in a scene is less or more cpu intensive or generates less or more overhead than when done in the main loop of a VD
  16. Updated Aug 2018 Now that my setup is reaching an amount of stability and it is getting to where I want it I decided I would update my setup post and also structure it a bit better. The core of my automation system if I exclude all the AV equipment is as follows HC2 runnnig 4.18. Approximately 102 z-wave devices and about 20 Sonoff wifi devices running Tasmota RPi running sonos http-api and HA Bridge, RPi running Unifgi Controller, RPI running octpprint fro 3d printer control, SPC Gateway for Siemens Alarm integration 4 IP cameras, 6 Echo Dots, 14 sonos zones, GC-100-12 for IR control over all media devices (TV, Media Sources, Projector,, etc), HDMI Matrix Automatic Dust collection system in garage (3d printed blast gates, limits switches with wemos D1 mini monitoring inputs and smart control switching of vacuum system) Room setup I have the usual rooms across ground floor, first floor, garage and outside I also have a section called System with the following rooms where i have all my scenes and VD's (more details on this below) Control – manual control of house stuff, Settings – Where I can tweak the automation, Status – display various system status stuff, Automation – only used by other scenes/VD, Alexa – only used by Alexa Development – stuff I’m working on Critical Scenes and VD’s Main Scene – master scheduler & Hometable – used to track id’s of scenesm, VD’s and devices and custom icons Timers + Sunset/Sunrise + weather courtesy of Sankotronic SCVD Watchdog scene - monitors for error or stopped VD and restarts them, monitors for specific debug messages and clears them if required Smart message Hub – used for main events that I want to know happen (alarm on/off, house modes, etc) Multiple Data Loggers – used for background tasks that I can check if I need to (keep clutter out of message Hub) Network device Monitors & State Table to track network devices status and system state information Lights in critical areas are automated as well as music and media, the rest is manual when needed. House modes can override automated settings (entertain mode changes behavior of garden, patios, bbq area lights) Some of what I have running is... Morning audio greeting in our bedroom and the kids bedroom, weather, temp in house, time, etc (our alarm clock!) 2. After greeting it groups players, selects a radio station, checks if it's available and if not selects another one Starting music in the kids bedrooms for night time. I also check periodically if the radio station available and restarts the radio station or selects another one if not available. Announcements for when fridges or freezers go over temp One button click for night, welcome back, leaving home (music, lights, TV, music adjustment + audible greeting ( time and temp of house on arrival) open zones on leaving, Zone Inihibit leaving and night options if windows are left open TV switch on in the playroom switches off the music, camera snapshops of front gates when they are opened/close Use of MP3 clips that systems uses instead of Polly TTS if internet is offline ... and the list goes on System Overview

    Hi I am new here, so sorry if I post this at the wrong forum I'm using fibaro HC2 together with google home by ifttt. I have created a user who only has access to a virtual device that I send the http command to. It works fine when I using device ID directly: http://User:[email protected]/api/callAction?deviceID=93&name=turnOn but when i usen the button indside the virtual device, it dose not work at all: http://User:[email protected]/api/callAction?deviceID=201&name=pressButton&arg1=button0 and I am getting the virtual device ID from the http link: /fibaro/en/devices/virtual_edit.html?id=201 I have no idea why it dose not work, its pretty Straight froward? thanks in advance for your inputs
  19. Hi ALL including the moderators @T.Konopka and @I.Srodka! I'm not sure where to post, because there is no RFC section, but I like to propose an RFC for the Virtual devices: 1. Make it possible same as for the scenes or physical devices to make a VD Hidden in the system. 2. Make it possible to stop the Main Loop in a VD. Specially option 2. can help to prevent disasters and is also very useful for testing purposes. Thank you very much for your attention.
  20. Why I don't have permission to create new topic in crawd's solution - virtual device ? Everything needs to go via DOWNLOADS ? I have a draft of VD and I would like to discuss with members about it...
  21. Hi all, I have an Itho Eco RFT ventilation box, wich can be controlled by a wifi interface. You can make api requests, wich work fine i.e. a browser. Here are te requests that are available: http://192.168.x.x/api?action=Low http://192.168.x.x/api?action=Medium http://192.168.x.x/api?action=High http://192.168.x.x/api?action=Timer http://192.168.x.x/api?action=Learn http://192.168.x.x/api?action=reset&value=true I want to put this in a VD. 3 buttons for "Low, medium and high". How can I put these URL's under the buttons? Thanks!
  22. [VD] HC2 Icon preview v2.1 Dear Fibaro friends! As you know, the worst part of importing and setting up virtual devices is finding icons ID's. How many times you noticed my VD's here with beautiful icons , but when you imported it all beauty is gone and there is just that ugly, blue box And then even when you manage to import those beautiful icons of mine then what? In code you have to setup some iconID but where to find that? Well, the time finally came to put us all to the end of that misery!!! Here it is, HC2 Icon Preview VD in its glory: This latest version can be found here for download: Enjoy coding!
  23. In most of my VD's on the WebGUI, I got a slider on the right side from label. It only appears in labels from VD's Before 4.150 it was ok Now at V4.160, not solved yet. Can Fibaro confirm this as a BUG ? Update: I noticed that on Internet explorer it turns out ok, would it be a cache thing from the chome browser?
  24. Hi, I have an issue to control some devices by iPhone or iPad. Most of the time I can't switch a VD by iPhone or iPad. It either responds very late 20min to 1h or never, but sometimes it goes directly. The VD's are AC's and TV's controlled by IR converter iTach. The icon on the phone/pad changes directly but no response at the device. I checked the iTach and it works correct if I operate it directly by other software. Currently I'm running 4.153, but the problem was there before. Any suggestion are welcome
  25. My Virtual Device (VD) get stuck after a while trying to decode json data. The error is: expected value but found t_end at character 1 Is there any solution to fix that? I've tried to add more seconds with fibaro:sleep but no results. Thanks for your help, Tomax
