I currently bought a Withings wifi baby monitor, however i've found its implementation sorely lacking, and will design something better later.


Oooh yes please!

look at the sleep command in the CORE

Delay you mean? That part i've got a handle on.

The larger problem is that I can't trigger on a Z-wave switch's state change event

Now I have need of this functionality for a 2nd reason:

I have a bathroom fan hooked up to a Z-wave ON/OFF switch. I want the system to automatically turn it off after 30 minutes. To do this i need an event that will trigger when polling reveals the switch has changed state.

Since I'm at a loss for how to do this, I'm writing a background service which will constantly poll the mysql database for state changes on this device, and after 30 mins will send the appropriate MessageSend.

PLEASE stop me if there's an easier way :)

I updated the entry for LinuxMCE on this page

To include protocol support info. Please fill in anything I missed!

Looking in the Zwave log, it appears that pressing the dimmer control does not cause the dimmer to notify the core... is there no way to force this behavior? or is it up to the core to poll the dimmer to get its state?

If so, it seems I can't have an instant sync. Can I, however, trigger on an event that occurs when the core polls the dimmer and discovers that it's state is different than it's old state?

I tried triggering with state changed in advanced event editor to no avail but the Zwave log gives:

Code: [Select]
36      06/18/13 1:35:56.064            Got basic report from node 15, value: 99 <0xb6f92b70>
36      06/18/13 1:35:56.064            State changed, send light changed event <0xb6f92b70>
36      06/18/13 1:35:56.064            Sending EVENT_State_Changed_CONST event from node 15/-1, level 100 <0xb6f92b70>

Though I'm triggering with "ON" not "100" or "99". Hmm

I'm trying to setup a 3-way switch with zwave.  I have one in-wall dimmer module (connected to load) and one in-wall remote switch (associated to the dimmer module).

The dimmer module doesn't support associations so I need to find a way to sync the led status lights between the two units when the dimmer module is manipulated.

I'm hoping it can be done with events.  So far I've tried "a device is turned on and off" and "a sensor is tripped" in the respond to event wizard. Neither seemed to fire on switch presses. I'm toying in advanced events, but clearly I'm missing some requisite knowledge of the event system because I'm having no luck. I'll keep researching, but if any of you could nudge me in the right direction it'd be much appreciated!

Feature requests & roadmap / Re: Schlage iLink
« on: June 04, 2013, 08:25:25 pm »
The Schlage iLink starter kit comes with a set of keypad lever, bridge device, and light module.

Currently I'm controlling my lights using LinuxMCE, with the Aeon Labs ZWave USB Adapter.
Does anyone know if the lock and light module would work with this Zwave adapter (e.g. Aeon Labs ZWave USB Adapter)

Alternatively, would LinuxMCE support the iLink bridge device, if I were to replace the Aeon Labs stick with it, as a gateway to the zwave network?


As far as I know, the adapter's not the issue, it's the Zwave driver LinuxMCE currently uses which doesn't support the security protocol. Hari is a LMCE dev who's also separately involved in the OpenZwave driver project (!forum/openzwave). This will presumably will replace the existing LMCE Zwave driver in the future, but whether or not it will support security protocol is questionable. An NDA and $$ is required to get access to the protocol details, and from lurking in the group I haven't seen big signs of progress on reverse-engineering it.

If you really want a remote-controllable door lock I'd look at a wired system with relay.

You seem to be suggesting a widget-style approach like android's, where users pick buttons from a bunch of available options WITHIN the interface itself, and arranges their screens to suit them.

But then you say no HA Designer, so I am confused. I haven't used HA Designer myself, but perhaps are you suggesting a simpler more accessible form of it?

Am I on the right track in understanding your proposal?

I agree entirely in concept. I, for example, use climate in my house but mostly the control is automated requiring no user interaction. VERY OCCASIONALLY we override the automated system, but it is so occasional that if it took 10 button presses (exaggeration) to get to it would be no big deal.

Shit... looks nice.

Dumb question probably, but why does the text not align sometimes (see attached)? Is this intentional?

Thanks. Development is proceeding slowly, because I am having to make all of my own widgets, from scratch.


Well from the looks of it it's worth the wait.
