IP Device Local Network Detector & Scene



I have below script VD in LUA which detect my phone IP in network - works good :]





local _deviceIp = "";
local _devicePort = 53516;
local _maxRetryProcess = 5;

-- recursive function to ping device
local function _ping(retry)
  retry = retry or 0;
  --open the socket
  local tcpSocket = Net.FTcpSocket(_deviceIp, _devicePort);
  --set the read timeout
  --notify user
  --send packet
  local bytes, errorCode = tcpSocket:write("ping");
  --check for error      
  if errorCode == 0 then
      return true;
      if retry < _maxRetryProcess then
        fibaro:call(45,"setProperty","ui.Label111.value","powtarzam szukanie");
      return _ping(retry + 1);
    return false;

--ping device, secure with pcall to catch errors.
local f, result = pcall(_ping);

if (f) then
  if (result == true) then
    fibaro:call(45,"setProperty","ui.Label111.value","W zasiegu");
    fibaro:setGlobal("remo", "1");
    fibaro:log("Server was not found!");
    fibaro:call(45,"setProperty","ui.Label111.value","Poza zasiegiem");

There are many ways to detect your phone or make auto lights go on it. And yes you must make global variables.

I have 3 phones to detect with 3 globals with 0 and 1 for example. all 3 with the precense detector on 0 and home status goes on Away... > lights of ;)

1 motion sensor in hall or 1 of the 3 phones on 1 home status goes on Home > lights On :D and you can go on like that...

See my signature for some solutions I use from great people that are around here
