  1. QA Virtual Sensors AIO (All in One) Why to use AIO virtual sensors: Possibility to create any hierarchical structure of sensors (real and virtual) - eg motion sensors for room, floor, object,… Switch the virtual sensor on/off Simulate the setting of values for temperature, light, wind, humidity, etc. Generate motion in a room where no one is and test the functionality of your home automation Clone the sensor to another room Correct the values Mathematical conversions eg. km/h to m/s Select how the final value for more sensors will be calculated (Average, Sum, Min, Max, Newest, Oldest) Detail view with all values and time of updates You can come with your own ideas how to use it INSTALLATION AND DETAIL INFORMATION: 1.Motion sensor - I use it as a main motion detector in all rooms/floors/buildings - it can concentrate all the devices that can show me that someone is there. Any motion detector (in Variables - Devices), opening or closing doors / windows (in DevicesDW) and then all remote controls / switches that generate Central Scenes (these are in DevicesCS) This is how I have it in all rooms and then I put the individual virtual detectors in the Floor / Ground Floor / Outdoors and then on the Floor and Ground Floor I make a movement in the House - basically any combination :). Virtual and physical devices can be combined. All other things (scenes/QAs) I have connected to these central sensors. Other use cases: - keep track of which devices in detail and when they last generated motion - generate movement by pressing a button (suitable for testing, for example - you don't want to go into the room, so you just create the movement virtually) - turn on / off the virtual sensor (you have a sensor connected, for example, in the alarm zone, but something is wrong, so you simply turn it off remotely) Other parameters: Delay - how long after the sensor the sensor returns to its original state (default 30s) MotionSensOn - whether the sensor should be in the On state after restart (values are Yes / No, default Yes) 2. Sensors: Power, Light, Temperature etc. Why to use: - I want to have an average value from more devices and then use it as the main indicator for a given room - I want to test something - I can set any value, both manually and from another QA or scene - I can create a sensor with an empty list of devices and send values from another scene or QA (or even manually) - I can turn the sensor off / on (if the sensor is off, I can still set the values manually / programmatically). When enabled, the manually set value will be overwritten when the first new value arrives from the defined devices. If the sensor is switched off, the set value remains there. - I can define how the final value will be calculated - can be used: Average, Sum, Min, Max, Newest, Oldest (TableOper item) - use for rounding values, - for correction of measured values - can be used for any unit conversions - for the resulting value calculated according to TableOper, a mathematical expression (ValueOper item) will be used, eg Value + 2 or (100 * Value + 2) / 1000 (if you do not specify Value, the result will be a given constant or calculated constant eg 10 or 3 + 12 + 20) - can also be used for cloning to another room - for example, you have a hygrometer in the living room and you want to add it to the kitchen - you will certainly find other uses Settings: all sensors have more or less the same settings - they only have a different set of default parameters - Devices: list of devices to be connected to the virtual sensor (comma separator), default is 0 (no device is defined) - TableOper - how the values coming from Devices are to be processed - can be used: Average, Sum, Min, Max, Newest, Oldest - ValueOper - how the resulting value from TableOper should be further mathematically processed - the default is Value, ie. unchanged - basic mathematical expressions including parentheses can be used - ValueRound - how to round the resulting value - how many decimal places - Unit - what is the sensor unit - SensorOn - whether the sensor should be switched on after restart (values Yes / No) 3. Power consumption for Light / Device I use to set the power for devices that do not measure power themselves. It can be used both for devices that have an On / Off status and for devices that are regulated and have values of 0-100 Settings: Device - only one device can be entered MinPower - consumption in the off state MaxPower - consumption in the on state at 100% ValueOper - how to calculate the final consumption - for the off state is Value 0, for the on state is Value 100, for controllable devices the value will be 0-100 or 0-99 (depending on the type) ValueRound - how to round the resulting value - how many decimal places Unit - default - W SensorOn - whether the sensor should be switched on after restart - Yes / No (default Yes) Technically, all devices are Child, including the user interface. The advantage is that they consume less memory than stand-alone QA devices. It is possible to have more main QAs in the system, for example one for motion detection, other for consumption measurement, etc. So far I only have one with more than 40 child devices QA works on the principle of capturing events (it is very fast) and does not query all defined devices on a regular basis. Each time the setting is changed, the name of any device is changed, the room is changed, the main QA and the child device are restarted Files: VirtualDevAIO.fqa
  2. Hi all, I am trying to create a virtual light switch which will fire out an on and off command to a network interface from a third party. I already have a server on the network listening for the commands for example the on command is http://(server ip address:port)/commands for on off command is http://(server ip address:port) commands for off Can it be done? any help would be super appreciated
  3. Hi everbody, I have a Tado Thermostat and was wondering if it is possible to create a VD for this thermostat? I found this unofficially API on the internet: http://blog.scphillips.com/posts/2017/01/the-tado-api-v2/ If anybody knows someone who already got a VD for Tado please let me know!
  4. I am not the Author, but this is such a great guide that I think it should be here. https://snillevilla.se/styr-philips-hue-lampor-med-fibaro-home-center-2/ You also need to check Developers.meethue.com and follow the tutorial there to get a user made for API https://developers.meethue.com/documentation/getting-started Files for icons and VD files here: https://github.com/snillevilla/Philips-Hue-VD-for-Fibaro-HC2
  5. How do you group Virtual Devises (LIFIX Lights) together to appear as one device could not find that functionality thanks in advance sorry very new to HC2
  6. I am making up an occupancy panel. So that the automation for a particular room only works if the occupant is at home. If they are away for a while, they will mark themselves absent and the automation should stop. This is to save power on heating, towel rails, exhaust, led lighting etc. I have made up a virtual button, image attached. This sets some predefined variables that I can use in scenes. What I really wanted was a latching button. I couldn't do that. Then I tried to change the colour of the button - no dice. I couldn't change the button caption either. So, finally I have a label changing to indicate whether the person is here or away. It is not satisfactory. Its too error prone, someone could press it accidentally. Its not obvious (without colours) what the current status is. Am I able to do any of the following dynamically with lua - Make the button latching (I can then have two buttons labelled here and away) Change the colour of the button Change the caption of the button Hide the button Add a pin pad on press Add a confirmation on press
  7. Hi, I'm new to HC2 and getting HC2 to know little by little. I have a VD to control my airco. I have three buttons, Power toggle, Power on and Power off. I have Power on and Power off working. I use LUA for all three buttons. Is it possible to control the Power on and Power off buttons from the Power toggle button? If Yes, could someone please provide me with some sample code? Thanks, FJW.
  8. Hello, I do not know if somebody posted it here. Fibaro, can you add label from virtual device to a condition into block scenes? It could save us many trouble with compare some desired values with label in VDs. I know, i can make it into Global variables, but they are unreliable (mine opinion only), because i think parameter "invokeScenes" is set to false by default. Many times happened to me that scene did not run, even if Global variable had desired value.
  9. Is it possible to check if the virtual device button was pressed in lua? Is there any function for that in lua? I want to code something like this: (If Button "3" of virtual device with an ID of 674 was pressed than a=a+1) for example
  10. Is there a way to determine whether a virtual device slider was changed by physically moving the slider or whether it was updated with LUA? This is for a now playing progress bar. In the slider's LUA script I want to ignore when the slider was updated by the main loop LUA code. fibaro:getSourceTrigger() sadly doesn't work for virtual devices. UPDATE: Issue resolved. Use fibaro:call(id, "setProperty", "ui.Slider1.value", position) to change the value and position of a slider without running the code in the slider. The slider on the web interface may not move without refreshing the page when this is called but it does work.
  11. Im trying to set an association from a tdk wall switch to a virtual device to allow me to alter a variable in HCL. I have searched and searched this forum but to no avail.
  12. Hi, i'm glad about the new compatibility between HC2 and Remotec ZXT-120 and now i'm trying to test it with Linked Devices, Heating and AC panels. In the Linked Devices - > Air Conditioning configuration I add my Remotec temperature sensor in Main Device option and i'd like to put my Remotec control in "1 Switch" device . It would be helpful to have at least the ability to add a virtual device with 2 buttons on / off that can control my Remotec through the panel but there's no way to add virtual devices. How can i solve it? Regards
