  2. Version 1.2


    1. Adjust Watering Scene Features: adjusts watering time sends email/push about watering conditions saves historical watering conditions This scene allows you to adjust watering time based on current rain forecast rain (till noon) current temperature forcast temperature You can change watering conditions as you like in adjustWatering() function. For example: if current rain >= 1 mm then turn off watering for 24h if forecast rain >= 2 mm then turn off watering for 24h if current rain >= 0.5 mm then decrease watering duration by 30% if current temperature >= 30°C then increase watering duration by 40% if current temperature <= 1°C then turn off watering for 24h if forecast temperature <= 1°C then send warning about frost The scene requires Sankotronic's 'Weather State and Forecast VD'. Tested with "Weather State and Forecast v2.7.1 standalone" Supports almost all services supported by 'Weather State and Forecast VD': OpenWeatherMap (only daily version) Dark Sky WeatherBit Weather HERE You can change it as always at Sankotronic's 'Weather State VD'. Customization: local vdID = 476 -- ID of 'Weather State VD' from which we will take data local sendEmail = true -- change to false if you don't want to receive emails local sendPush = true -- change to false if you don't want to receive push messages local emailUserId = 2 -- user id to send emails local pushDeviceId = 0 -- mobile device id to send push messages Watering schedule should be set in sprinkler panel. I scheduled running this scene everyday 15 minutes before planned start of irrigation. The scene increases/decreases watering time of all sprinklers. Optional modules: 2. Watering History VD Features: shows watering time for the last 7 days shows watering conditions for the last 7 days (gathered by Adjust Watering Scene) shows current watering state (on/off) shows current watering mode (auto/manual) shows watering plan allows to change watering mode (auto/off) allows to run watering once (15/30/60 min) Customization: buttons code: local sprinklerNr = 1 -- sprinkler number (1, 2, 3, ...) VD supports only one sprinkler. If you want to see the watering history of more sprinklers then you have to create separete VD for every sprinkler. Remember to set sprinklerNr variable for every of them. 3. Netatmo Scene If you don't have your own Netatmo Station, then you can use the neareast station in your location. All public stations you can check here: https://weathermap.netatmo.com The rain data from the netatmo are much better than the data from Forecast Weather Service. Especially if the rain Netatmo station is near your location. All you need is: a) copy the code from Netatmo.lua and paste it into Sankotronic's 'SA_Weather_Module_scene' at the end of file b) sign up to get access data (https://auth.netatmo.com) and fill these fields in pasted Netatmo Scene code. Client ID and Client Secret token you can get when you create app on site https://dev.netatmo.com/apps/ local n_client_id = "" local n_client_secret = "" local n_username = "" local n_password = "" c) then change these variables values in the main loop of Sankotronic's 'Weather State VD' as follows: local netatmoWeather = true local netatmoRain = true d) if Sankotronic's 'Weather State VD' doesn't show netatmo values then increase distance to find a rain gauge in pasted Netatmo Scene code: local long_lat_adjust = 0.1 Enjoy...
  3. Has anybody tried/managed to link Fibaro HC2 with the Hydrawise Irrigation system controller made by Hunter : https://www.hydrawise.com/ This controller connect to the network via WIFI. I appreciate any comment on this ...
  4. Hello Forum members, I am a Newbie on Fibaro HC2 / LUA and struggling with my next project: I have a Hydrawise Irrigation Controller (sister company of Hunter). This controller is already smart and adjusting the irrigation schedule based on weather data via WUnderground. My plan is to track the status of each zone in HC2 and switch the pump (wall plug) on and off. API key is available and the connection is working on browser and in LUA code. I can run and stop specific irrigation zones via code but I do not know how to get the datastring into HC2 variables. start relay 485761 / zone 3 for 600 seconds: local http = net.HTTPClient() http:request('https://api.hydrawise.com/api/v1/setzone.php?action=run&api_key=XXXXXX&period_id=999&relay_id=485761&custom=600') stop same relay: http:request('https://api.hydrawise.com/api/v1/setzone.php?action=stop&api_key=XXXXXXX&relay_id=485761') Both is working and I can see the effect on the Hydrawise controller. code for the statusschedule: https://api.hydrawise.com/api/v1/statusschedule.php?api_key=XXXXXXXXX I receive following string in the browser: {"time":1613911956,"nextpoll":60,"message":"","simRelays":1,"options":17,"master":12,"master_timer":0,"master_post_timer":0,"expanders":[],"sensors":[{"input":0,"type":1,"mode":1,"timer":0,"offtimer":0, "relays":[{"id":485761},{"id":488979},{"id":488980},{"id":488981}]}], "relays":[{"relay_id":488979,"time":1576800000,"type":110,"run":0,"relay":1,"name":"Rasen Terrasse","period":259200,"timestr":""}, {"relay_id":488980,"time":1576800000,"type":110,"run":0,"relay":2,"name":"Beete Eingang","period":259200,"timestr":""}, {"relay_id":485761,"time":1576800000,"type":110,"run":0,"relay":3,"name":"Rasen Erker","period":259200,"timestr":""}, {"relay_id":488981,"time":1576800000,"type":110,"run":0,"relay":4,"name":"Hochbeet","period":259200,"timestr":""}] Hopefully somebody can support in this topic.

  5. Is it possible to use Fibaro Relay Switch to start/stop 24v solenoid valve used in irrigation system? Any manual on this?
  6. Hello, my first question on this forum, so please be gentle I have Home Center 2, with some modules (roller shuters, netatmo, C02,...). I have a big trouble with buying stuff for my water control with solenoid valves, for my irrigation and water floor heating. I would like control them with double switches, so i need 6 of them for 12 valves. I found this picture on forum for control 12V Solenoid valves with the old one Fibaro Double Switch 2 FGS-221. Is this possible with the new Fibaro Double Switch 2 FGS-223 ?? I can get them here easier then the old ones. I didn't buy valves yet, so can someone tells me, what kind of them i must buy, 12/24 or 230V, DC or AC, and how i know which valves are closed when power is off. I will buy transformator from 230 to 12/24V if i must. Can someone help me with this problem? Thanks a lot for your help and your time LP Mr J.T.
  7. I'm looking to upgrade my garden irrigation system and integrate it into my HC2. My current system uses 24v DC powered solenoid valves which are triggered via opto-coupled relays with a coil voltage between 5-15v DC. I want to control up to eight zoned valves from the HC2 web interface through schedules and interface switches (simular to how a light would be switched on/off but showing irrigation icons) Can I / should I use a Fibaro RGBW Controller?, or can I use the Fibaro Universal Sensor? (I'm not sure I can switch the two outputs of the UBS from within the HC2 interface though?) Thank you for any advice / recommendations in advance....
  8. Hi guys. Apologies if this has already been answered but was wondering if there was a way to switch the individual sprinklers between Auto/Off using a VD or similar so I can do it from the phone App? I'd like to be able to effectively disable my sprinklers during winter and only water automatically during summer. I know there is a good VD for the "Sprinkler Panel" (here: https://forum.fibaro.com/topic/21066-sprinkler-panel/?page=3#comment-146054) but I really want access to the Auto/Off mode selection. Thanks in advance.
  9. It is possible to add Fibaro RGBW module to irrigation panel for controlling 4 12V valves ?
  10. Hi All, This Lua Script does exaclty what I am looking for to use the rain delay in the Sprinkler Panel for what would be a more automated method instead of the built in functionality which is pretty manual (so much for "smart" home) Problem is I have an HCL, so I would need to understand how I program this virtual device without LUA Thanks to Vesternet for the original LUA script http://www.vesternet.com/resources/application-notes/apnt-78#.VgRbcrTJ8UW Any help "translating" please. Thanks
  11. Installing Irrigation system at our house and will be controlled by HC2 using the Fibaro 1.5kw relays. One thing that I would like to add is a Rain sensor. Are there any z wave compatible Rain sensors that I can use???
