Set Fibaro Alarm On or Off through Virtual device



Hello all,


Does anyone happen to know how to set a fibaro alarm (Zone) to on or off with a quick app/vd? :)

Through the blocks does not work.


Edit, fixed this as follows:

- Create a virtual device in HC3 called Alarm , with 2 buttons and the following code:

Please login or register to see this code.

Make sure you replace XXXXXX with the device ID of the alarm Zone you want to arm or disarm. (you can find this by going to http://ipofyourhc3/api/devices)

- After that, When you press this virtual device it will arm the alarm (satel or whatever you have assigned in HC3 as alarm)

I had a similar situation this is how I have fixed it 

   I am reading json via http from an ESP8266 status of garage door and on same phisycal device a relay module ... quite cheap devices


 I wanted to have alarm sensor and push button to open the gate so I used the following :


    1 . quick app type binary switch ( can be also door lock with other functions calls )

if (previousValue~= newReadValue then
                 previousValue = newReadValue  <--- this is to avoid flip o value or update if not needed ( also to avoid debugging a lot for the turn on / off of deviceIDGarageDoorssensor)



if readturnON then
                      fibaro.call(deviceIDGarageDoorssensor,"turnOn")   <--- I do this in order not to read again status from ESP 



    2. quick app with door sensor to be included in alarm zones 


function QuickApp:turnOn()


function QuickApp:turnOff()


function QuickApp:onInit()
