Re: Sonoff - WiFi Wireless Smart Switch For MQTT

Hi, I think we discussed this over the other topic earlier today; you can do this e.g. with the Custom lamp item. But it's really a "dummy lamp" item only - not capable of handling feedback/response/state/availability/LWT messages from e.g. Sonoff or other similar "smart switch". This, until Stefan ...

Re: Message - How to use it?

No problem, I'm glad to be able to help! And yes, you can post the state changes of any lamp item to the MQTT broker. Please report back how it works (if there's a delay or not). I might consider this myself as well. My current goal is to have automatic outgoing state change messages sent to an exte...

Re: Message - How to use it?

Hi, Not sure how you'd like to trigger the messages to MQTT broker, but I have used MQTTValueLogger (under Gauges) to send values (can be any attribute of any object) as MQTT messages. Currently I send temperature and humidity readings, but it can be anything. I'm not sure if this happens in real ti...

How to push state changes of ONH objects to an external system automatically?

Hi, I'm working on yet another dashboard for ONH (and more). It's based on touchscreen that I plan to mount on the wall. I would like to have it synchronised with ONH object states in real time. Currently it's polling the statuses via REST once per minute. This causes some issues when someone uses e...

Re: Advice needed - Need to control external device

Hello, You can create a Custom lamp for that. I use it with various DIY stuff. Just define the OnCommand and OffCommand way you like. As an example I use this with my garage aircon esp8266 based MQTT switch: OnCommand: exec,mosquitto_pub -t MyHome/Garage/Aircon/AirdryerIn -m 1 OffCommand: exec,mosqu...

Hi Stefan,

Any updates?

I’m in a process to find a backup HW for Tellstick duo. What options do I have today?

Re: "Event queue full" Error after 10 minutes of usage

Hmm, I did the telnet/subcribe. I have 5-6 temp/humidity sensors. They seem to send 3 events at a time each (once per minute). Each of these then trigger MQTT message to be sent to mosquitto for other systems to get the data too Philips HUE bridge has 3 lamps configured into it. For each lamp the br...

Re: "Event queue full" Error after 10 minutes of usage

Hi Stefan, Most of the mqtt load is caused by a single sensor (lightness meter) that is bombarding the mqtt broker every 10s. That's probably unnecessary for most of the use cases. It can be changed to every 1min or 5min instead, but would be only a temporary fix again. There will be more an more se...
