PROGRESS UPDATES

 

  • UPDATE (06.10.2022) - UHAS is published and availalbe for download from the link above! I started to develop UHAS back in 2016. I know that it seems like a very long time to make 86 Virtual Devices and 48 scenes, but in reality I invested about 1 year and a half to make it. The rest of the time I was either working on ships away from home or was having good times with my family and friends. I also realize that UHAS came out for HC2 that is almost at the end of its journey with us. Still if UHAS can just a little bit more extend life time of this very nice controller then I will be happy and satisfied. I want to thank many of you helping me making this possible 🙏. There will be a quite a list fo names to mention and please forgive me if I don't do that here. THANK YOU!!!! ❤️
  • UPDATE (18.09.2022) - Sorry for long silence. I was really, really busy working on remaining unfinished modules and fiercely writing Installation and user manual. I have added Christmas indoor & outdoor scenes which are compatible with ALC. Simple to setup and use. To have Christmas lights working only what is needed to enable Christmas lights with tap button on ALC Sidekick VD and use ALC Config VD to setup some lights inside and outside, then add two lines in Main scene FTBE and enjoy Christmas times. :-) I have also finished Very Smart Blinds scene and VD and they use same philosophy as ALC. Install VSB scenes to rooms where you have blinds, Venetian blinds and curtains and one instance of VSB Config VD do some settings from your sofa and let the rest to the HC2 to take care. Writing manual is a bit more demanding, but I will do everything I can to publish compete system before end of this month. Waiting is finally over. :-D Will not update screenshots of UHAS this time and there is a lot of new stuff and changes to the existing ones. Burglar alarm and manual is what is left to be finished before publishing. Still will invest most of my time now in manual since what ever will be missing from UHAS at the time of publishing can be added later. 🤞
  • UPDATE (09.08.2022) - UHAS is now installed on another HC2. During installation cleaned more bugs. Sonos ARC Player VD now has companion VD's Sonos ARC Setup VD and Sonos ARC News VD. Auto volume scene is updated to support both API and ARC Players, also ANC TTS scene corrected some bugs for better support for ARC Player. Also made scenes for Fibaro Button and Doorbell scene. Still have to do support for Fibaro swipe. For now I have removed Netatmo thermostat from the list since Netatmo plans to kill Client Credentials grant type authentication. This will make all solutions made until now to STOP working. Of course they didn't provide any other simple and yet safe solution for integration to home automation. I'm currently looking for another solution, but it might take some time before I manage to update all my solutions for Netatmo integrations. Hope to finish remaining "in progress" parts and start writing installation and setup manual as soon as possible.
  • UPDATE (27.07.2022) - As I wrote before I was away from home on my new job from 13.04. till 14.07. and during that time I was unable to do any progress on UHAS.  When I return home and turned on my HC2 with UHAS in development it failed :-( I invested one day trying to revive it, but not possible since USB drive failed and it is not easy replaceable. So, I had to install complete UHAS on my other HC2 and it took me few days to get it all installed and ready for me to continue work. I will mostly invest time to clean various bugs as much as possible and to finish remaining few solutions and then write user manual. Hope to do all that in next month time. Fingers crossed 🤞
  • UPDATE (05.04.2022) - UHAS lights module DONE. Will do some more testing of new HUE2 and try to catch some bugs if show up. I have also to thanks @clowg for checking and correcting English translation, @MarcoTorino71 for doing Italian translations and @Bodyart for Slovak, Czech, Dutch and German translations. THANK YOU! 🥰
  • UPDATE (03.04.2022) - Philips HUE VD+scene suite for HUE API v2 that works with new introduced HUE API on HUE bridge v2 with firmware 1950111030 and up is finished. :-) Have to do some more testing, but testing will be done during upgrading ALC suite to work with this new HUE integration. Effects are still not implemented by Philips, but according to API documentation will be in some of next releases. I have added effect and code is working, but HUE bridge for now only turns on light without effect. Today is Sunday, usually day for leisure. I will start with upgrading ALC tomorrow and today I'm busy with cleaning some bugs noticed during last two weeks of using new UHAS. Also have to spend some quality time with my family and to rest my eyes a bit from all day work. ANC (Advanced Notification Center) I see that there are users using different types of TTS like Android TTS and Voice Monkey etc. Currently UHAS ANC supports Sonos TTS, but will see how to add other types without needing to do much work. Stay tuned :-)
  • UPDATE (29.03.2022) - GOOD NEWS! I have found and adopted functions to calculate colors from HSV to XY and vice versa. I have already working HUE2 Preview VD and scene that can control individual bulbs and groups with color, color temperature and static and dynamic scenes :-) Thanks to the color calculation functions I can keep Hue and Saturation sliders. Of course behavior of this sliders is a bit different than with the old HUE API, because HSV is now recalculated from XY on each status update and for bulbs that have smaller gamut triangle like LCT001 will change position to the nearest possible color after user selection. This is expected behavior since Philips original mobile app does the same on the color wheel when user select color that is outside of the color triangle for the controlled bulb. I still have to add ALERT code and also code to change speed of the selected dynamic scene. I will also need few days to complete HUE2 VD family same as I have for old HUE API. After that at least a week to update ALC (Advanced Lighting Control) to work with HUE2. This is of course my estimate of time needed which is until now proven not to be correct, but bare in mind that besides coding I do have some other obligations that can't be ignored and also writing code is not a problem, but testing and cleaning of bugs can't be done faster since many scenarios must be checked. Faster is only not to test and release code full of bugs.
  • UPDATE (26.03.2022) - Since Philips has removed HS (Hue + Saturation) control from new API and left only Gamut XY and color temperature CT, it is necessary now to have some functions to calculate HSV to RGB and RGB to XY values. There is some code for color conversion available on their website, but it is not directly suitable to use on Fibaro Home Center. I have translated their code written in C++ to LUA and now I'm doing some testing together with RGB to XY conversion functions that I have found on my HC2 inside the Philips HUE plugin. To keep Hue and Saturation sliders to control color two conversions needs to be made, first HSV to RGB and then RGB to XY. Since different bulbs have different Gamut properties and cover different range of colors, Philips has provided gamut information for selected bulb in format gamut = {["blue"]={["x"]=0,["y"]=0},["green"]={["x"]=0,["y"]=1},["red"]={["x"]=1,["y"]=0}} in new API. These are actually corners of the triangle that defines which colors can be addressed by specific bulb. These points can be used then to more accurately calculate XY from RGB values. Preliminary tests of this calculations are looking good. I hope to have working HUE solution in few more days of hard coding and then I can make modifications to ALC to support this new HUE solution. fingers crossed 🤞
  • UPDATE (24.03.2022) - 3 months later I'm still busy with UHAS. Problems with memory optimization are solved by changing code of all VD's and scenes. UHAS has now also universal scenes for Fibaro dimmer 2 scene activation, Fibaro KeyFob central scene events and Remotec remote panel. All necessary code including support for UHAS ANC is already there. User only need to add own action code. Philips HUE control: Currently working on Philips HUE API v2 integration. Since Philips is also still working on their new API changing and adding new features, I also have to to change already tested code. With latest HUE bridge firmware update 1950111030 released on 14 March they added full control to grouped lights and also changed JSON format for rooms. Effects like "candle" and "fire" still not working, but I hope they will bring this effects with next firmware release. ANC (Advanced Notification Center): Besides Pushover, Telegram and Group me, ALC is now also supporting WhatsApp and Signal over the CallMeBot API. There is a lot of other work done in last 3 months. I have removed COVID-19 VD and Sonos API Master VD from the list. Since there is no more COVID-19 useful free API available I have removed COVID-19 stats VD from the list. Also Sonos API Master VD is removed for now from the list since for many actions it is easier to have Sonos VD for each speaker available. Since I had to change code in all VD's and scenes to improve memory usage handling I have also removed need for Emoji VD. There are also some NEW VD's and scenes added to the list. Please check list below.
  • UPDATE (31.12.2021) - Today is the last day of this year. I'm again behind the schedule :-( It took me almost 4 weeks to further optimize code of 80 VD's and 32 scenes, but it was worth it. UHAS is now running stable and responses are fast on system with 106 z-wave devices, 102 VD's and 49 scenes, but also extended RAM memory to 2Gb. I still have to test it on original setup with 1Gb of RAM. I was also busy with Philips HUE new API. What they did with new API is first removed support for HS (hue/saturation) so now we have only XY color space and MIREK or color temperature. Then they also removed "effects" and only existing "colorloop" and replace it with "gradient" that refuses to work with my color bulbs, most probably because I still don't understand how to use it 😮. Anyway, I managed to find out how to work with single bulbs and also with scenes on group of lights. On the old API when requested to send all settings, response JSON was nicely sorted with lights, scenes, groups, sensors parts. New API is now just a big bunch of unsorted data and to get something from it you have to loop through that very big JSON and try to find what you really need. So, best way to get soehting from bridge is to do several requests separated for lights, rooms, scenes etc. Not to bother you further with this, Philips new API is just a big mess of everything and some things that were missing on old API, are still missing on new one. It is as they admitted, not a finished yet. I should have soon a working set of VD's and scenes to control HUE lights, but I will not bother for now with sensors, buttons and other devices.
  • UPDATE (10.12.2021) - Yesterday 09.12. I started with moving new UHAS from developing HC2 to my working HC2 so I can do final testing in real life and also finish some parts that I can't do on developing HC2 due to lack of various devices. This is also needed to clean all bugs related to installation of UHAS. Even I can see the finish line now I still can't tell you the exact release date because in the meantime Philips decided to replace their HUE API v1 with v2 which is major upgrade and will discard the old API. I have done some preliminary testing of HUE API v2 and I have to completely rewrite HUE for HC2 and do SMART combination of VD's and scenes so that it just works and works fast and that users do not have to do anything inside code to make it work after installation. All this is because HUE API v2 will not support HTTP calls any more which forces me to use scenes to communicate with HUE bridge. Also what is left to be finished is translations and installation and user manual. UHAS is opened for future expansion and users will be able to add their own solutions, but to be able to do that I have to provide some information on how to do that. I have also made UHAS SDK that contains all necessary code snippets and functions that can make any solution UHAS compatible. So keep fingers crossed 🤞 because finish line is definitely close! Will keep you informed and thank you for the support!
  • UPDATE (07.12.2021) - Flood and Fire alarms done. Automatic search and setup of flood and smoke sensors immediately after installation. Possible add additional sirens and also valve control. Will close added valve(s) for water in case of flooding. Fire alarm can close gas or fuel valves in case of fire. User can also add other actions as needed. Also alarm notifications can be sent to all UHAS available services (TTS, LaMetric, push, popup, e-mail, pushover, telegram, groupme...) Since Philips decided to upgrade HUE API, now working on upgrading UHAS ALC module to support this. Since HC2 VD does not support HTTPS calls have to use scenes to communicate with HUE bridge, so now testing several solutions to have smooth control and also feedback. I was really hoping to release UHAS this week, but due to some problems and this Philips HUE API changes have to postpone for few weeks :-(Primary problem was with global variables that keep translations to 20 different languages. Since they grew beyond Fibaro HC2 limits first I have reduced number of languages form 27 to 20. After finishing ANC and adding all new notifications this appeared not to be enough. So now I have modified system in the way that users will have to request what languages like to have and then will provide only requested languages. This solution now also enables UHAS to be translated to any language on request. :-) I have added few new pictures for Flood and Fire alarms. I should actually update all pictures since most of the VD's are in the meantime upgraded and enhanced primarily for better functionality, but also visually.
  • UPDATE (07.11.2021) - WOW, time is really passing quickly when I'm busy. In past few weeks I was mostly busy studying to pass exam and get yet another certificate for my next job which I successfully done. This week I'm completely devoted to coding UHAS. Mostly I was correcting or improving some of the modules. Today I'm also finishing Sonos API Master VD that can replace few Sonos API Players for Sonos speakers that are mostly always joined. Also finishing Sonos API Setup VD that will simplify setting up some default settings, like volumes for different times of day, also volumes for TTS, changing radio stations or playlists and even timer to set news radio station for news broadcast and then go back to previous music. Then continue on working alarms and appliances monitoring. UHAS must be ready for publishing at least 2 weeks before Christmas and will do my best that this happens even if some things will still not be ready. The rest can be always added later. Fingers crossed 🤞
  • UPDATE (04.10.2021) - Advanced Lighting Control (ALC) is finally done :-) I still have to do more testing for different situations, different types of lights and configurations, maybe improve few things, but it is now already working nicely. The biggest advantage of the ALC over VSL is that users can now easily setup lights without needing to see a line of LUA code except for setting motion and lux devices. But once motion and lux devices are setup, all other settings can be done with Mobile app. User can use ALC Configuration VD to setup all lighting for the selected room. ALC suite has now also included ALC Mimic VD which is responsible to learn and then control lighting while users are away from home. With learning mode enabled it will record lights events for 24/7 period and then use this recording to mimic lights when needed. Even recording of lights events should be sufficient it is still possible to add events manually. I will soon provide more information on ALC features. Please check pictures below.
  • UPDATE (15.09.2021) - Sun Calc. VD + Moon Calc. VD + scene is added to the UHAS family. Please find more information below. Also picture is provided under the UHAS Schedule module
  • UPDATE (07.09.2021) - Alarm Clock (VD + scene) is DONE. Please find more information below. Also picture is provided under the UHAS Schedule module
  • UPDATE (01.09.2021) - Watchdog (VD + scene) is DONE. Please find more information under the OVERVIEW OF UHAS MODULES. Also added picture.
  • UPDATE (28.08.2021) - UHAS all existing components are now updated to the latest integration specs. Many components are upgraded to update global variables that can be used as triggers in user specific action scenes, especially climate components like Netatmo, WeatherFlow and Ambience weather stations. ANC (Advanced Notification Center) Has now new ANC Message Queue VD which can be used to check all queued notifications and reason why where not sent (Sleep, error sending, internet down), but instead saved in queue. All messages in queue can be then listened on speaker or resend. List of done changes, corrections and new stuff is long to publish here. UHAS at this moment has 63 virtual devices and 27 scenes ready for distribution. I still have to made few more to cover all must have automation. Please check table bellow with current status of the UHAS components. Once it is finished it will be possible on users request to add more integrations that will be easy integrated to UHAS thanks to UHAS SDK that I have made during work on UHAS.
  • UPDATE (23.05.2021) - Advanced Lighting Control (ALC) - Currently rewriting Philips HUE, Nanoleaf and LIFX code for better integration with ALC. Also to support Advanced Notification Center notifications. Basic learning code is done, but needs comprehensive testing under different situations. Irrigation Control - Also working on Irrigation Control that will work and solve some deficiencies of HC2 Sprinkler panel like limitation of only 15 minutes watering duration and also overlapping of zones watering when watering adjustment is applied. Advanced Notification Center (ANC) - is finished and in process of testing and improving. Also lots of translations of notifications still needs to be done. With new Sonos API Player and ANC it will be possible to send TTS notifications in different languages than the one set for HC2 and UHAS. Also LaMetric smart clock is completely integrated with notifications, radio and alarm clock. Weather State & Forecast and Netatmo Weather Station modules are also updated when their standalone version are updated to support new weather services. Sonos API Player is upgraded to support doorbell and security alarm sounds. Also handling of TTS notifications is modified for multi language support. Lithe Audio Player is now also integrated to UHAS and now working on adding doorbell and security alarm compatibility in parallel with work on QA version. Also hope to do some better handling of supported music sources.
  • UPDATE (29/12/2020) - UHAS is completely reorganized and I have reduced number of modules. This does not mean that UHAS final version is reduced and it will still have all planned components. More about reorganization you can see below in Overview of UHAS modules. I also had to reorganize Translation module and move translations from individual VD's to scenes for easier maintenance. During testing I have also realized that I have to improve stability and reliability of VD's main loops since in some cases they where stop running when global variables where damaged or even deleted. This are last changes that I had to do. Translation module is done only some translations still have to be made. System module is also done regarding stability changes, but now I'm adding last needed parts. Automatic backup is finished that includes one VD and one scene. Users will be able to manipulate backups from mobile apps, setup automatic backup and manually delete or create backups. Automatic backup to cloud takes care of free space and in case there is not enough space for new backup it will automatically delete oldest backup without needing user intervention. System Watchdog and Event Viewer I'm now working on. System Watchdog purpose is to monitor UHAS and restart any VD main loop or scene if found stopped running. With latest stability improvements that might seem as unnecessary, but I also found main loops and scenes to stop running without any errors if are making HTTP and HTTPS calls. System Status VD is checking internet connection and Network Scan VD is checking local network selected devices connection and prevents this calls in case connection is lost, but still it can happen in some rare cases. ANC (Advanced Notification center) is still not completely finished. I'm still now adding ANC support to all other UHAS components and testing. ANC is also one of the reasons I had to do changes to Translation module to have translations for notifications on one place. System Control VD can now restart UHAS and reboot HC2 in the controlled manner and also reboot router if connected to z-wave smart plug or any other plug that is controlled with VD. There are other numerous improvements done to UHAS that will not mention here. Main scene FTBE separated timers and scheduling part. Scheduling part improved to be able to control more different devices. Timers part will be moved from scene to Sunrise & Sunset VD to keep only one scene always running. There is a long list of other improvements made in last few months, but it would take too much time to put it here. :-)
  • UPDATE (29/11/2020) - Twinkly Lights VD - finished both versions for UHAS and standalone. Ambient Weather VD - updated to support more stations thanks to @gklurker providing me access to his station. ANC module - have to do some changes to the initial setup, so now adjusting other modules to use this new setup. UHAS all modules - done some changes to the debug part. Added current date to be also displayed for easier understanding when events occurred. ALC module LIFX VD - updated global variable for better usage with learning mode. Presence module - Added solution with mobile apps like Geofency, Locative and similar. Still working on tuning up and adding notifications. Sonos API Player VD - added possibility to get playlists from My Sonos and also select and start playing, same as for favorites. See picture of new VD under Multimedia module. System Status VD - Now added checking of router VLAN IP address and it is shown on VD label together with time of last change. Also if setup VD will send notification whenever VLAN IP is changed.
  • UPDATED (12/11/2020) - Improved Sonos API Player VD - that now can control group/ungroup speakers and gets favorites from Sonos app. Twinkly LED lights VD/scene - for now can turn on lights with last selected scene and turn off. API is still not made public so there are some setbacks :-(COVID-19 Stats VD/scene - updated to work with new endpoints and API key. Weather & Forecast VD/scene - corrected some bugs and looking for additional weather services
  • UPDATED (03/04/2020) - Added support for Netatmo presence outdoor camera. Upgraded all currrent UHAS modules to support new Advanced Notification Center and LaMetric clock. Not to list all changes and improvements see list and pictures below
  • UPDATED (28/12/2019) - - Added support for

     (Coach). New scene and VD's support any number of the Coaches installed in users home. Completely made new sets of Philips HUE VD. HUE Group VD now supports HUE scenes. User can select and activate any of the available scenes that are added using Philips HUE original mobile app, check spoiler for picture. AIO VD is now replaced with set of VD's that are suitable for use with bulb type. For example, dimmable bulbs have only brightness and transition speed sliders, while full color bulbs have sliders for brightness, hue, saturation, color temperature and transition speed. 
  • UPDATED (24/06/2019) - Added logo and new MOTO 
  • UPDATED (19/06/2019) - New added to UHAS is integration of

    LIFX integration was demanding since LIFX LAN protocol utilizes UDP/IP communication with binary packets of data in little endian. First version of LIFX Color VD will not include effects support since effects are not available yet as programs, plugins or chunks of data available through API so have to be builded on software platform in this case as part of the LIFX Color VD. Weatherflow station becomes more and more popular for its possibilities and open API so UHAS integration is done. For now Weatherflow Air and Sky modules are supported fully! :-) I'm also working on integration of

UHAS IN PICTURES

 

UHAS Translation module:

Please login or register to see this spoiler.

 

UPDATE (04/10/2021)

I have added latest picture with all UHAS components finished. This is still picture from the development HC2. I still need to finish few more things and then will start first installing UHAS on another testing HC2 to solve any possible problems that can show up during installation and then will go to my main HC2 replacing old solution.

 

UPDATE (01/09/2021)

I have removed my working system picture since it is still running older version of UHAS and I added picture of the latest UHAS that is now still running on my development HC2. In next several days I will first install new UHAS on another HC2 which is prepared for this final testing. I need to check and solve any possible problems that can occur during clean installation. During this clean installation and setup will do my best to make as more pictures and videos as possible. Final test then will be then installation of UHAS on my working HC2. Some UHAS components I will be able to finish on my working HC2 since there I have all needed devices included. On development HC2 I have just few devices included that I still haven't include on my working system.

 

UPDATE (12/11/2020)

My system at time of writing update: 29 rooms in 3 sections; 110 z-wave devices; 83 virtual devices; 67 scenes; 8 cameras

Unfortunately, previous plan about date of publishing UHAS has changed due to COVID-19 pandemic and my work. I was not able to work on UHAS from 25th April till 22nd October this year. Even I'm now investing most of my time to work on UHAS, there is a little chance that it will be ready for publishing as previously planned. Most likely it will be ready for publishing in first or even second quarter of 2021. Wiil do my best to be as earlier as possible, but there are some things that just can't be predicted and that can influence my work on UHAS.

 

UPDATE (19.01.2020)

My system at time of writing update: 28 rooms in 3 sections; 109 z-wave devices; 80 virtual devices; 67 scenes; 7 cameras

I started building my system in December 2015. UHAS idea was born in 2016 when I started sharing some of my work here on forum. Each script I wanted to share, first I had to change to suit other users so I started thinking why not write code that is universal. Serious work on UHAS started in 2017. In that time I was really optimistic that I can make it till the end of 2018. Unfortunately due to my job to which I have to give more than half of my life and also some setbacks either caused by Fibaro new releases or me and my lack of knowledge we are now looking at the end of this year, but more likely first or even second quarter of 2020. Last two months I have invested in rewriting most of the UHAS code due to some limitations of the current HC2. That is now done and I'm ready to continue to do the rest of the modules.Soon I will have to go to my work again for at least four to five weeks, but will continue to work hard on UHAS when I'm back home. 

 

Besides rewriting UHAS code I have made new Philips HUE VD family that now supports also scenes that are made on Philips original app. So no more HUE AIO VD (all in one) but now there is a family of VD's for control either group of lights with scenes or single bulbs depending on type Color & White ambience, White ambience and Dimmable only. Still HUE Group Control VD is the most advanced one that provides control of complete room or zone with HUE scenes.

  • Hi all, 

     

    I'm a bit frustrated with Fibaro! It is really unbelievable  how VD's are displayed completely different on web GUI interface, iPhone app, iPad app and when it is open for editing!! Here it is what I mean:

    First one is the best, but that you can see only when you open VD for editing. Second is normally opened VD on web GUI. Why can't be same as first one?! Third one is from iPad and it is just slightly better than last one from iPhone because used font is smaller and iPhone is DISASTER!!! 

     

    BTW, on above pictures is Weather forecast VD. It is almost finished but I'm really struggling with what to display and what to remove. Forecast from Wunderground.com is even worse because they have nice but long description that just don't fit on iPhone OLD application with GUI from times when first iPhone came out :huh:

    At this moment i'm glad to use android :-)

    But agree with @Sankotronic, that the displays shoul'd be at least a bit similar otherwise some information (functionality) may become malformed. Let's hope the Fibaro guys are reading with us.

    Hi Jim,

     

    That is definitely much prettier than on iOS. I'm thinking to get one android for testing purposes. Nothing special, fancy shmacy and definitely not too expensive. Maybe some Chinese phablet :-P Do you have any recommendations?

     

    BTW, is it possible that you are still running beta version of Weather State VD? o.O

    Get any running Marshmallow at least. 

    I am not running the Beta, I copied over the main loop when the stable came but forgot to change the name of the VD :roll:

    And just notced when you pointed it out :)

    I really doubt that they really reading anything. I send PM to one of the admins with request for help with attachment quota being full and NOTHING! At the end I had to delete half of the content posted during the last year and it took me half of the night to do that. I had to go through all my attachments and posts one by one and every time with difficult decision to delete or not but I had to make some space for this new solution.

    Maybe stupid idea, but you could use google drive of dropbox ect to host and just allow downloading and not editing...

    :-D:-D marshmallow? I like to eat them not run them :-D:-D 

     

    Well, for this new version that is still cooking in my lab, you will probably be able to copy/paste code, but also you will have to add two buttons. Will try to make upgrade easy as much as possible and maybe make it possible to skip importing complete VD all over again.
