Virtual Device - Which properties does it have?

 Share

Question

Hi,

 

I am wondering about the properties of a Virtual Device and how they can be accessed and changed.

 

For instance, if you want to change the icon of a VD you can use a statement like this:

Please login or register to see this code.

 

If you want to update a label text you would do:

Please login or register to see this code.

 

To my question then: Does anyone know of a complete list of properties applicable to a Virtual Device?

For instance: devices which report power consumption use the footer area to display current power usage. Can this area be accessed in a VD too? Someting along the lines of: 

Please login or register to see this code.

 

I am reading in Fibaro's documentation of the REST API about how to extract a list of all VDs and their properties/data. There are apparently properties like "caption", and "buttonIcon". The question is if and how these can be set via LUA code.

 

Thanks for any tips and hints.

/Per

    Thanks a bunch Jamie!

     

    The message is temporarily displayed, for about 8-9 seconds, and then reset. By design apparently.

     

    In my case I have a VD which runs every 30 seconds using fibaro:sleep(30000) so I need to figure out a way to keep the message active in the log area.

     

    One option is to allow the VD to run every second and programmatically fix the 30 second sleep with an internal counter in the VD.

     

    Thanks!

    Just put it in your VD main loop

    This is a way to actually see all VD properties to get you started.

    When using Firefox:

    1. Install a JSON-viewer like 'KISaD JSON Viewer' (fast and simple).

    2. Open the VD General Tab.

    3. In the URL, replace     fibaro/en     by     api    ('en' is your current webUI language)

    4. Press [Enter]

    I have the same problem.

    My code is in the main loop, but it still dissapears after a short time, or when you refresh the browser.

     

    In the debugwindow, i see it is printing the timestamp over and over again:

     

    [DEBUG] 17:13:02: 16:54:54
    [DEBUG] 17:13:05: 16:54:54
    [DEBUG] 17:13:08: 16:54:54
    [DEBUG] 17:13:11: 16:54:54
    [DEBUG] 17:13:14: 16:54:54

     

    Piece of code from the mainloop:

     

    local hueTemperatureDeviceID = 3
    local hueMotionDeviceID      = 4
    local HUEkeukenPIR  = fibaro:getGlobal('KeukenPIR')   

    -- enter name of the user that you added to the HUE bridge
    local hueUser = "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"
    -- enter icon ID's for corresponding status of the virtual device
    local iconOk          = 1028
    local iconalarm          = 1027
    local iconUnreachable = 1033
    local iconError       = 1034
    local debug           = false

     fibaro:debug(HUEkeukenPIR)
     fibaro:log(HUEkeukenPIR)

     

    I have no idea where to look anymore, anybody?
