LED under the bed



Hi Guys,


I have a need to create a scene that will be controlling some LED rigid RGB bars under the bed, via and RGBW module and using a Fibaro Sensor.


The LED bars x 3 will be fixed under the bed. The sensor will also be fixed under the bed. 


My idea is that during the hours of 20:00 and 6:00, the scene will work otherwise it will be ignored.


When the sensor detects movement (ie I or my wife puts their feet on the floor) the LED will come on, thereby illuminating the floor around the bed sufficiently for I or my wide to see their way but not so bright that it wakes the other person.


The LED's will stay on for 60 seconds then automatically go off.


It sounds fairly simple but I am not a LUA programmer. However the graphic building block option was the way I was going to approach it.


Has anyone some tips before I rush head on in please?

First, create a variable call LED Bed Sensor with ON/OFF.

Using a scene to toggle the variable, for example when time is 20:00, set variable LED Bed Sensor to ON. When time is 06:00, set variable LED Bed Sensor to OFF.


Using a scene with motion sensor breached as a trigger, turn on the led followed by a turning off of led 60 seconds later.


It's pretty much straight forward if you list out the steps of the scene that you want before coding it.

  • So I have the scene working but it only works once and I cant get it to loop...or come on again. Meaning the sensor is breached, the LED comes on, then off automatically 30 seconds later. I try to set it off a subsiquent time but it doesnt work?


    Here is my LUA code, and help appreciated


    %% autostart
    %% properties
    54 value
    %% globals
    local startSource = fibaro:getSourceTrigger();
    if (
     ( tonumber(fibaro:getValue(54, "value")) > 0 )
    startSource["type"] == "other"
    fibaro:call(63, "turnOn");
    fibaro:call(63, "turnOff");
    end, 30000)

    Check parameter on fibaro sensor. Have the same problem. But one parameter is maby wrong. Blind time maby?
