Hi,

I only wish if we can make some breakthrough in adding events handlers in Ruby ?

ddamron - any chance that this is feasible under current system ?

Thanks in advance,

regards,

Bulek.

I considered writing a GSD device which monitored things like sensors and then sent commands to lights. But  in the end it was easier to just use misterhouse and have it register with the DCE router for plain text events. This way misterhouse exposes all the connected devices to LMCE - MH is the parent device and all my lights sit under it.

Recoding all this to happen natively in LMCE as a GSD would be cool, but I can't get my CM11A working in LMCE, so perhaps when this changes (0710 release?) I'll make a start migrating my MH logic.

That's great. Are you willing to post your code somewhere. Some time ago I did write dirty mock up code for connecting to Misterhouse, it would be great if that is expanded to better support and integration of LMCE and MH...

I always thought that Misterhouse next generation is to migrate its logic to Ruby and use it under LMCE (there was a lot of discussion about future of MH - I think it is under LMCE)....

We were working towards a neater version, here: http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=3573.0

I didn't really have time though.


Here is what I use right now (it's VERY ugly - I don't know perl!):


Code: [Select]
# Category=Pluto

#@ Connection with Pluto DCE Router via TCP port localhost:3450 (mh.ini -> pluto_DCE_router).

Edit: Just noticed that message values for still and motion seem to be the wrong way round? Btw I haven't been able to clear a tripped security sensor from a DCE message, it seems from looking at the admin site that there is no command to do this.

Not sure if this is what you're looking for, but sensor tripped event has two values (1 ON, 0 Off)...
$device_id -1000 2 9 25 0     sensor tripped off....

Re: Few basic questions about creating real-life scenarios

Things have changed a little bit and my system setup is now:

Motion Sensors --> MR26A X10 RF receiver --> Misterhouse --> LMCE DCE

MH sends a tripped event with value 1 to LMCE when motion is detected and sets an internal timer. More motion refreshes the timer. When the timer expires a tripped event with value 0 is sent to LMCE. I could find no way to program this logic in LMCE, and also there is no support for the MR26A, so MH is the best option right now.

I then setup LMCE to turn lights on and off based on the security sensors.

I have some X10 wall switches which I have defined as lights. I then setup respond to events to do things when the light is turned on or off.

What I am missing:

There is no way to say in the advanced criteria page "Do this, if this sensor is tripped, and nobody is watching media in the room, or if this device is on" as there is no way to add more than one event for the criteria. I wanted to have an override switch I could use to enable and disable motion operated lights - hence the last part of my desired criteria.

I also can't find a way to say "if it is 2 hours before sunset" in the criteria. Is this possible?

I wondered what Room Mode was in the criteria - perhaps this would let me do the "if nobody is watching media in the room"?

Also how can I do "if the house is not in sleep mode"?

Regards,

Chris
