  1. Here is an example of how to code in a "single instance / event" style. A style I'm using today for all of my scenes. The idea is that instead of having to deal with a new instance being spawned with every scene trigger, all triggers are dealt with from within a single scene instance that is continuously running. It becomes something close to a traditional event loop model found in most modern GUI frameworks. The advantages with coding scenes in this style are: Scene can keep state in local lua variables between scene invocations/triggers Easy to keep different rules/logic in the same scene without causing conflicts, e.g. combining continuous running loops/schedules with immediate reaction on incoming triggers Easy to distribute different rules/logic between different scenes and allow them to communicate Easy to schedule actions to do in the future - that can be easily cancelled if new information is gained. Because the scene is continuously running it doesn't matter if there is a heavy initialisation when the scene starts up (parsing HomeTables etc.) as it is only done once... The framework has extensive support to run and debug the scene offline on a PC/Mac to get things right before deploying the scene on the HC2. Offline it is easy to simulate trigger/events to understand if the logic is correct, something that is not always easy to detect in a asynchronous environment. It has proven to be easy to integrate with external event/msg based systems like Node-red, where scenes can both send and receive events to node-red and thus extend functionality with Alexa, Google home, Hue etc etc. The framework is available in two version, a 'light' version and a full blow version with a lot of bells and whistles. The latter also supports writing rules in EventScript, a "simple", but very flexible and efficient approach to writing rules that need to trigger things at various times of the day, or trigger on sensors or switches changing states. The implementation of EventScript is built on-top of the single instance framework and the event model and would have been impossible to do in a traditional scene model. Ex of EventScript rules. --[[ %% properties 55 value 66 value 77 value 78 sceneActivation 88 ui.Slider1.value 88 ui.Label1.value %% events 100 CentralSceneEvent 120 AccessControlEvent %% globals Home %% autostart --]] myLightSensor = 55 -- do not declare local, script will not find them(!) myLight1 = 66 myLight2 = 67 myDoorSensor = 77 mySwitch = 78 myVD=88 myKeyFob = 100 myLock = 120 function main() -- Trigger rukes Rule.eval("myLightSensor:lux > 200 => myLight1:on") -- Turn on light1 if lux value goes above 200 Rule.eval("myLight1:isOn => myLight2:on") -- Turn on light2 if light1 is turned on Rule.eval("myDoorSensor:breached => myLight1:on") -- Turn on light1 if door sensor is breached Rule.eval("mySwitch:scene == S2.click => myLight1:on") -- Turn on light1 if S2 is clicked once Rule.eval("slider(myVD,'Slider1') == 50 => myLight1:on") -- Turn on light1 if slider is set to 50 Rule.eval("label(myVD,'Label1') == 'ON' => myLight1:on") -- Turn on light1 if label is set to 'ON' Rule.eval("myKeyFob:central.keyId==4 => myLight1:on") -- Turn on light1 if key 4 is pressed on keyFob Rule.eval("myLock:access.status=='Unlock' => log('Door unlocked by %s',myLock:access.name)") -- Door unlocked Rule.eval("$Home == 'AWAY' => myLight1:on") -- Turn on light1 if fibaro global variable 'Home' is set to 'AWAY' Rule.eval("#AccessControlEvent{data={name='$name',slotId='$slot',status='Unlock',id=myLock}} => log('Door unlocked by %s',name)") lamp = 55 lamp2 = 56 lux = 57 lux2 = 58 sensor = 66 switch = 77 -- S2 switch keyfob = 88 -- more rules -- Turn on lamp at 15min before sunset Rule.eval("@sunset-00:15 => lamp:on") -- Turn off 2 lamps 15min past sunrise on weekdays Rule.eval("@sunrise+00:15 & wday('mon-fri') => {lamp,lamp2}:on") -- Turn on lamp if sensor breached Rule.eval("sensor:breached => lamp:on") -- Turn off lamp if sensor safe for 5min Rule.eval("for(00:05,sensor:safe) => lamp:off") -- Turn on lamp if doubleclick on switch S2 Rule.eval("switch:scene==S2.double => lamp:on") -- Toggle lamp if key '1' pressed on keyfob Rule.eval("keyfob:central.keyId=='1' => lamp:toggle") -- Turn on lamp if average lux is less than 200 Rule.eval("sum({lux,lux2}:lux)/2<200 => lamp:on") end More on EventScript and the full blown version is available in the posts listed below: Here is a post on setting up the framework (works for EventRunnerLite too) Here is a post on the EventRunnerLite version - a bare bone version of the framework Here is a post on writing schedulers using EventScript.

  2. I am really happy with Alexa's Fibaro skills. Unfortunately, there seems to be limitations to take advantage of LUA scenes and virtual devices. What would be your recommendation to have workaround for this? Should I forget Alexa's Fibaro skills and use Raspberry PI and HA Bridge instead or what? Does it matter what PI version to use? What would be the best tutorial to make it work? Thanks in advance for your support!

    alexa only find lights switches

    i have got an Alexa echo dot(2nd generation) and connected to my HC2.Alexa app discovered only light switch but don't recognize my blind sensors , heat controller and scenes.i have disabled and linked again both skills but it didn't work.my HC2 version is 4.150 and remote access works fine.
  4. I have about 40 active devices, all of which were working last night. This morning one of them has disappeared from the Alexa app. It still appears in the Fibaro interface where it works perfectly. Running discovery on Alexa doesn’t find it again, and I’ve done the custom skill “list homecenter devices” thing too. How can I force Alexa to find it again? Any idea why it would have disappeared? Things I have tried: * soft reconfigure missing device * rename missing device * restore working back up on Fibaro * list homecenter devices before discovery In all cases Alexa finds no devices. so frustrating - why would one dimmer just disappear? thanks,
  5. Hi, tired of Fibaro's poor skill at Amazon Alexa (never connect, it's slow) and the HABridge (we must pray for Alexa to find the devices, it is very random, it works when it wants, it duplicates devices). For all that I decided to try and do tests with Node-RED. And now I can say that it is fantastic, there are no limits to create. If you are interested I leave more info. Now I can control the lights, turn on and off, change the intensity, change the color, execute scenes of Fibaro and many things, all without depending on the official skill or any third party Bridge. I used: * https://nodered.org (Installed in Raspberry) * https://www.amazon.com/Ben-Hardill-Node-RED/dp/B01N0D97FZ (Node-RED alexa skill) * https://alexa-node-red.bm.hardill.me.uk (You have to create user and then create all the devices and scenes) * "HomeTable" global variables in HC2

    Fibaro skill not available in Alexa India

    Hi team, Amazon launched Alexa in India on Nov 2017 but still Fibaro skill is not yet available in Alexa India platform. If you buy Amazon Alexa from India and choose language as English(India) and then go to Skills section, you will not find Fibaro when you search for this skill. As a workaround, all Indian Fibaro users have to create and Amazon.com (not Amazon.in) account and then select English (US) as Language and after doing this, you can enable Fibaro skill but you will not be able to access other Indian skills. @Fibaro please enable English (IN) language in your skills. It is just 10 minutes job for your developers. Here are the steps: https://developer.amazon.com/blogs/alexa/post/f89ae457-9538-4b57-b3f6-dbef2f600412/how-to-update-your-skills-for-india India is big market for Fibaro and I wonder why @Fibaro doesnt have focus on delivering services in India. @Fibar Looking forward to your support.
  7. Hi - what is the most popular and reliable home automation bridge for connecting Amazon Echo and Google Home (at the same time) to Fibaro & Vera - in a residential setup... It should be easy and designed well for customer to integrate into their setup in a good way. regards , Sanjaya info@SBSdimensions.com (SBS Dimensions - India)
  8. FIbaro really needs to get with the picture and play catch up with modern technology of 2017. To allow for a more fluid integration with other third party services, like; google home, alexa, IFTTT, homee, etc. the Ha bridge was the only true 'natural speech" technology that felt natural without having to "request or tell __ to increase the volume, etc. before it simply worked very well, once set up correctly. hey google/alexa turn on the living room light. now im stuck with an extra step of "asking" google home/alexa to tell fibaro to do something. pretty stupid if you ask me. this is not home automation. this "half assed integration. IFTTT first solved this by being able to link alexa/google home to make it feel more natural by saying "hey google/alexa, turn on the hall light." stop twiddling your thumbs and get with the picture and start getting serious. your facebook page is nice, but it does nothing for your existing customers that already own your system. with each day of in-action, you risk losing them to other controllers that "actually" do listen to their users and add their requests.

    Neo plug not discovered by Alexa?

    Hi, both me and my friend has a problem that Alexa don`t discover NEO plugs?
  10. First- I couldnt find Fibaro in Alexa skills (In India). Neither i could find Google also. Is there any regional restrictions? I configured ha-bridge and it was configured and the webpage is opened : https://github.com/bwssytems/ha-bridge However i couldnt find any devices - neither z-wave or wifi equipments were not visible. Both Z-wave and Wifi network (+Alexa) is working . How can i trouble shoot. Is it because data/group.db is empty . Sorry for being dumb.
  11. Hi with the current alexa options most of us have been stuck with Turn on and Turn off This doesn't make sense for gates and garage doors and has other limits as well such as being able to say "Alexa I'm home" or "Alexa, Start my day" If you have the latest version of the ios or android app you'll see routines in the menu options IT IS NOT AN OPTION IN THE WEB SITE /BROWSER VERSION These are three of the routines I added Create A new routine gives the folowing The first part is what you say and the second option is what this voice command does There appears be be no limitation to what you can add to the first part In the Add Action , click Smart Home to see a list of your devices Select the device Choose 100% brightness (but maybe 1% will also work) (brightness appears for me as I use the HA Bridge and my devices are an Hue bridge Emulation Click Next and you're done I also added another action to get alexa to say something back besides the usual 'okay' and that's it !! It may take 30 second functional but it works a dream f(for me anyway) _af
  12. Hi, Hopefully this will be replaced in a few months with direct control of Sonos from Alexa through a native skill supplied by Sonos themselves In the meantime if you are using the http-api and have the HA bridge running then this may provide a stop gap for you if you require one This compilation builds on work from a number of people including @morpheus75, @lennypenny, @matt1981 and others. This solution has two parts and both will be needed for each zone you have. 1 - A simple sonos VD to provide limited control over a player. (volume, mute, play, pause, favorites and playlist access) There is no main loop code (as we are not displaying status) and should be light enough on your system 2 - The commands for the VD that will need to be entered into the bridge There are three files included below The sonos VD ( required for step 1 below) A summary of the commands that with a simple find/replace will work for you (required for step 2 below) A outline of how to structure the entries in the HA bridge and what the alexa verbal commands are for each function (required for step 3) Lets get started.... Step 1 Import the VD and add a name (should match the name of player in sonos) IP address (of sonos-api) and Port (normally 5005) You will need to customise the VD for your favorites and playlists. Modify and confirm all is working, Make note of the VD id number Screenshot of VD and a suggested icon Step 2 Open Commands file attached in your preferred editor Replace the text user with your email (something like auto.frank%40gmail.com) Replace the text password with your password, (something like JackBox$) Replace the text hc2ipaddress with the ip of your HC2 (something like 192.168.1.45) Replace the text VDid with the id of your VD created above (something like 245) You will also need to modify the HA bridge entry names (#8 to # 13) to match the favorite and playlist changes you made in step 1 This will then give you the command strings that you will need for your system that need to be entered into your HA bridge Step 3 Enter the commands into the HA bridge. @morpheus75 has an excellent video on how to add entries to the HA Bridge I have added a link to the youtube video below - skip to timeslot 27:00 for the part that outlines how to add an entry to the bridge. Files Step 1 Virtual device : Roomname.vfib Step 2 document: HA bridge commands.txt Step 3 document: HA bridge entry instructions.txt Adding HA Entries: Youtube link.txt Hope this will be of use to forum users _f
  13. Hi Forum, The native skill for sonos is now available from Sonos There are also updates for the system and for all the controller platforms (android, desktop, iOS) To enable the skill you will need a Sonos account which you should have created with the last Sonos update. Log into your Alexa account and find the and enable the Sonos Skill This will redirect you to you Sonos account to get your permission to link to your sonos system You will then be redirected back to the alexa account to discover your sonos devices after discovery you will see the list of players List of voice commands (thanks @speedy) SiriusXM You can initiate playback from any service using the Sonos app, and basic playback commands, such as play/pause, volume and skip, will continue to work. Spotify users: The ability to ask Alexa to play Spotify music on your Sonos speakers is not yet available, but is coming soon. General playback commands Alexa, pause/stop/resume in the (room name) Alexa, pause/stop/resume the music in the (room name) Alexa, skip/next in the (room name) Alexa, play the next/previous song/track in the (room name) Alexa, pause Alexa, resume on (room name) Alexa, next song/track Alexa, previous song/track Alexa, stop Alexa, skip Alexa, skip song/track Alexa, what's playing in (room name)? Note: Skip and previous cannot be used with TuneIn radio, and previous will not work on Pandora and iHeartRadio. General volume commands Alexa, turn it up/down in the (room name) Alexa, louder/quieter in the (room name) Alexa, set the volume to 3 (30%) in the (room name) [0-10 volume levels] Alexa, softer in the (room name) Alexa, mute the (room name) Alexa, unmute the (room name) Note: Volume commands will only affect the player the command is directed to. If the player is grouped, the group volume will not be adjusted. To start Amazon Music playback Alexa, play music in the (room name) (Alexa will select music) Alexa, play (artist) in the (room name) Alexa, play (song name) by (artist) in the (room name) Alexa, play (artist) on Pandora in the (room name) Alexa, play the album (album name) by (artist) in the (room name) Alexa, play (activity) music in the (room name) To start TuneIn playback Alexa, play (TuneIn station/radio call sign) in the (room name) Alexa, put on (TuneIn station/radio call sign) in the (room name) Alexa, start playing (TuneIn station/radio call sign) in the (room name) To start Pandora playback Alexa, put on (station of your choice) on/from Pandora in the (room name) Alexa, play (station of your choice) on/from Pandora in the (room name) If Pandora is setup as your default service in the Alexa app: Alexa, play (station of your choice) in the (room name) To start iHeartRadio playback Alexa, play (station of your choice) on/from iHeartRadio in the (room name) Alexa, put on (station of your choice) on/from iHeartRadio in the (room name) If iHeartRadio is setup as your default service in the Alexa app: Alexa, play (station of your choice) in the (room name) To start SiriusXM playback Alexa, put on (station of your choice) on/from SiriusXM in the (room name) Alexa, play (station of your choice) on/from SiriusXM in the (room name) The new Sonos One has the Alexa skill built in.

  14. Hi guys, I have used the Sonos VD before with the SONOS play:1 speakers and the Fibaro HC2, however I am planning to buy a Sonos One (with built-in Alexa), has anyone tried using the VD with this? Thanks, Prankit

    Integeration Of HC2 with Alexa

    Hello, I want to know that which Amazon echo device is fully compatible with fibaro? Which Version has to be selected and which model ? It is stable or not ? Does it work well or not ? Thankyou

    Alexa with limited User possible?

    Hello community, I’m trying to connect an echo dot to HC2. As the dot belongs to one of my kids I’d like to give him access to the devices in his room only. therefore i’ve setup a user with limited access to specific modules in HC2. How can I now add the limited user to the Alexa Skill? I have to use a Fibaro ID user in the skill. But there I only have the main admin connected to my hc2. It’s not possible to connect multiple Fibaro IDs with the same HC2. So is Alexa an all or nothing option only? br Kro

    FibaroHC2 / Alexa problem

    I have an annoying problem with Fibaro HC2 / Alexa users. This chain of event is taking place all to frequently: «Alexa, turn off Kitchen Table (a group of Fibaro switches/dimmers)» «Kitchen Table is not responding» Then one out of two things may happen: (1) Nothing happens (Kitchen Table stays On) (2) Kitchen Table is switched of in spite of the negative Alexa message. I have reset Alexa, deactivated/reactivated Alexa’s Fibaro Skills, let Alexa rediscover devices. Even changed names of devices. No success so far. Problem also occurs with Scenes. I am fully aware that Scenes using LUA code will not respond, but that is not the problem, since it also happens on LUA free Scenes. Any ideas out there ?
  18. Hello all, I have an Amazon Echo Dot and I've enabled the Fibaro Smart Home Skill and Fibaro Custom Skill. I have a Home Center 2 set up. I've installed my first Fibaro RGBW Controller today with existing RGBW LED Strip and I was looking forward to controlling it with Alexa from my Echo Dot.. The issue I have is that I can turn on/off and dim/brighten the LED strip (it starts by default on white color) but I can't seem to get the advanced commands to work. For example, when I say "Alexa, ask Fibaro to activate Rainbow on LED Strip" (I've named the RGBW Controller as "LED Strip" on both HC2 and Alexa app), Alexa will tell me one of the following: - LED Strip is turned on (LEd strip was already turned on) - Wasn't able to turn on LED Strip (my LED strip is actually turned on during that time) -> I have tried the above with the LED strip off as well, same outcome - Having trouble communicating with the Fibaro Custom Skill (this is usually after I try the commands several times consecutively without any luck) My RGBW Controller was added perfectly to the Z Wave network and Alexa discovered it easily but I can only turn on/off or adjust brightness through Alexa. I would like to do the following: - specify which color I want through Alexa - ask to activate a program (Rainbow, etc.) Can anyone help? Thank you.

    Jakiego asystenta polecacie?

    Witam. Czy w związku z aktualizacją w której FIBARO rezygnuje z LILI, można przyjąć że Alexa lub Asystent Google działają w języku polskim? I czy mógłby mi ktoś wytłumaczyć jak zintegrować Asystenta Google z Fibaro? Robiłem wg zaleceń...Zainstalowałem Google Home...Ale tam asystent nie reaguje... mam jeszcze aplikacje Google i tam asystent reaguje ale wyświetla mi linki do stron fibaro, ale nie "fibaro id".. Co robię źle?

    Alexa Smart Home - Device status

    Hi, I have multiple devices hooked up to Alexa via the smart home skill. It seems Alexa now supports getting the status of a device: "Alexa, are Kitchen Lights on?" Is there a way to enable this for Fibaro devices as well? It would be extremely helpful to be able to ask Alexa for the device status. Right now we get a reply "Kitchen Lights does not support that" while other (non-Fibaro) Alexa integrated binary switches reply with the correct status.
  23. Hi I moved my Amazon hardware to Australia now that it is supported here. When I went to install the two Fibaro Skills it said that they are unavailable for Australia. That just doesn't make any sense unless I'm missing something. Fibaro, surely the skills should just be dependant on where Amazon decide to support Alexa products?

    Scenes not avaible in routines

    Scenes are avaible throught the smart home part, but not in routines? why?
  25. I am hoping for some useful advice from people with at working Alexa / HC2 system. After endless hours of Fibaro Support emails, testing, deleting and restoring my LAN, HC2 and Alexa, my problem still remains the same: Alexa picks up my command (e.g. "Alexa, Turn off Kitchen Table") and one out of three things happen: (1) Light is turned off, Alexa responds "OK" (2) Light is turned off, Alexa responds "Sorry, Kitchen Table is not responding" (3) Light is NOT turned off, Alexa responds ""Sorry, Kitchen Table is not responding". Totally erratic, no pattern. Failure statistics: 1 out of every 4 (25%, N=40). Enough to reduce the WAF to Zero. Fibaro Support finally made me aware that the problem is response time: If the time from command is given to remote Alexa/Fibaro server response is received, exceeds 7 seconds, Alexa times out. Fibaro Support keeps on insisting that the problem is my LAN/Internet connection. I have however gone so far as to disconnect all other devices on my net but for the HC2 and Echo Dot and confirmed my Internet speed is 92 Mbps Up/Down. Even followed the rather extreme Fibaro Support advice of reducing the physical distance between HC2 and the Fibaro Dimmer2 to less than 300 cm (!). I am now starting to suspect that the problem is the Alexa/Fibaro API server integration. And I have of course upgraded firmware, reconfigured z-wave net, dis/enabled Fibaro skills, deleted and restored my HC2 from Fibaro ID, confirmed Alexa has selected my HC2, reset the Echo Dot, reset the HC2 and restored the system from backup and so on and so forth. Friendly guys at the Fibaro Support desk, but so far advice has not brought me any visible result, except for loosing all my custom Scene/VD icons, which apparent are not part of the HC2 back up file Any wisdom out there?
