Questions about the release of v0.9

[solved]hue-zII error

After updated my pi with version 0.3.1 I got the following error:

error [pimatic-hue-zll]: Error during poll of all lights Hue API request (attempt 1/9): Object function Object() { [native code] } has no method ‘assign’

Any idea how to fix this?!

No. It is a standard notebook. I think I have found the solution following the advice given in the following forum thread (second last post):!topic/youtube/mYBzHWscubo
I used the malware removal tool from as suggested and found 8 adware things on my computer (not FlashMall btw). After performing the removal and rebooting the notebook the demo works as expected.

It seems to work for the others

You have a cool idea about pimatic?
Dynamic pages


Another idea came to my mind.
Creating pages in pimatic is nice to sort things in groups. But static pages don’t always show you what you need just in this moment.
My idea is the possibility to create “dynamic” pages.
Let me explain:
Create a new page, call it “Now” (or whatever) and mark it with “Dynamic”.
Now you’ll need to create some kind of “rules” for the page.
“if dwd-weather-warning is set, then show it on “Now””
“if presence of XYZ changed in the last 5 min, then show it on “Now””
“if light-xyz is set to on, then show it on “Now”” (Just to not forget switching off :D)
“if google-calendar has events for today, then show it on “Now””
“if window-sensor-xyz is open, then show it on “Now””
… blabla ;-)

Another thing, which would help structuring those pages would be “priorities”. For example: It’s more important for me to know that a hurricane is coming, then that the light’s still on. Assigning priority 1 to a rule / item should display it on top (latest change first), priority 2 below, priority 3 …

Probably this is a reeeeeeally big thing to implement, but i just had the idea and really liked it. It’s like pushing pimatic to a new level :smile:

Greetings, Chris

Discussion about Hardware.
Mastervolt Soladin grid connected solar invertor

@DavidZH said in Mastervolt Soladin grid connected solar invertor:

You connect the RS485 gateway to your RPi and with the MySensors plugin you can then get the values from your inverter.

But then you still need to decode the serial line protocol. At least, I did not find a MySensors sketch for this. Doing the decoding as part of pimatic is possible but not trivial.
