Timed lights/Autoshutoff


Guest Cirion

Question

Guest Cirion

I like to have lights in several rooms turned off after say 5 minutes. Great for a toilet or storage room.

I did try this once, a loong time ago (1year), but the HC overheated and crashed after 2-3 days. I had to unplug it, let it cool down before restarting it. It was fast once rebooted but after a few hours it began to react really slow. Scenes could use 2-3mins to turn on lights. Until everything stopped.

I now use my HC for 19 devices, and that includes my underfloor heating. Whenever my HC crashes, my heating stops. So I am afraid of trying the timed lights again.

Is there a good way to add autoshutoff to a light? Will there ever be a setting from fibaro?

I only used a scene, that was triggered every time a button was pressed, and it run for 5minutes an turned off again. I guess when several scenes like that was running at the same time it overheated the HC.

I have made the following code to switch my light to a lower value after 5 minutes, but you might as well set that value to 0 of course. Since I'm not a very experienced coder, I'm sure some people will do a better job at the same thing. So feel free to comment:

  • I have trouble understanding the German or whatever language that was used in that code. Might be easyer to understand how you do something if I know why you do it...

    Is there a manual, or somewhere I can look up the LUA commands used in Fibaro?

    If you have trouble with the language you can use something like google translate.

    I also spend last weekend for a manual because LUA is the language I am not familiar with

    There is some info on the Original LUA-site

    There is somewhere a Topic on this forum (posted by A. Socha?) with a link to somekind of manual, but still need of a translateprogram for it is in Polish.

    I tried to create some scenes with the graphical blocks and then switched to LUA to check the code and try understanding it. But i wanted something where there is no block for and still figuring out what the correct code will be.
