Users / Re: Stopwatch / timer in events?

There has been an update to the binary, as well as to the device template.

You now have the ability to define a sensor to verify before turning OFF the device in question.

The way the egg timer works is:

* Send Start Egg Timer to the device with the parameters DeviceToLink (the light that will be turned on at the beginning), Timeout (the time after which the light will be turned off), VerifyStateDeviceID (the Device ID of the sensor that should be verified at the end of the timeout if it is tripped. If it is, the timer will be extended by the initial timeout.

* Send Cancel Egg Timer if you want to cancel the above timer before the end has been reached with a parameter defining if the OFF command should happen or not.

The reason for the new VerifyStateDeviceID are people that work the whole time, thus never stopping the motion sensor being tripped. Now it will continue to keep the light on.

Again, the binary is currently downloadable from - and there is a small wiki page about it:

Feedback is appreciated.

PS: If you do not see the VerifyStateDeviceID when sending the Start Egg Timer command, make sure to sqlCVS upgrade the DCE repo.

A note on CHT/Dianemo: They have long used their own repository, but do provide fixes back to us every now and then manually.

The only auto-correct that is usable is the one from WP - everything else should be disabled ;)

As always, feedback is appreciated. If everybody is happy with it, we might make it a must-have device and can amend the security plugin for the camera and lighting with it.

sudo isn't allowed from php for everything.

Look at /etc/sudoers to understand what is possible, and what is not. In general, it makes sense to put a bash script into a well known place and use that for whatever is needed.

Although this is a fairly old topic, we had a feature request for this in trac.

While doing a LinuxMCE install on Cyprus the user requested a similar feature. And after thinking a bit about it, we found out, that this can be achieved with a dedicated egg timer device. The egg timer receives the device in question to be turned on, as well as the amount of time in seconds before it should be turned off. What is different from the use of Delay is, that if the event that started the egg timer (or different event that would extend the egg timer) happens, the egg timer gets extended and does not turn off after the first period of time.

If anyone is interested in testing this new device, please download into /usr/pluto/bin, and add the Egg Timer device below your CORE.

Feedback is greatly appreciated.

We do not use the NetworkManager, but take care of the interfaces file ourselves.

I guess Storage_DevicesRadar needs a bit of an overhaul

It is the latest go of golgoj4 at a Network Video Recorder device. It got send to everyone by mistake. I am sure golgoj4 will put up a wiki page, once the major kinks are out.
