Release pimatic-raspbee@0.1.6

Is it possible to connect two raspbee/ deconz instances to Pimatic. In Dmoticz it is, but since Pimatic is (still) my primary system, it would be nice if this is possible. Both deconz controllers are accessible in my home network. One is in the house and one in the barn, which is too far away to create a mesh network for one deconz controller.

Everything that doesn't fit elsewhere
Maybe new problem with homeduino and 433mhz receiving (without arduino)?

Receiving now works again (and sending of course) with my setup. No need for arduino in my case.

Thank you very much bomm, for your help :-)

BTW: I use Pin 17 for receiving and Pin 23 for transmitting

You have a cool idea about pimatic?
Ignore current state in base devices of pimatic

I’ve implemented the same behavior like the forceSend property in pimatic-homeduino in Please upvote the feature so it will be integrated. I hope the main contributors of the project, who are able to merge pull requests, are still listening? @mwittig @sweetpi

With this feature you can ensure that eg. a switch is switched regardless of the current state. This is especially helpful if you are using a DummySwitch inside a rule.

Rhasspy voice control integration for pimatic

Hey @crispy,

thank you for pointing me to this software. I was looking for something like this for ages: an offline voice assistant that can still do some basic tasks.

I tried to implement this, but with a little different approach to the intent handling. I wanted to use a MQTT-device to evaluate the speech recognition. In my MQTT I can see the correct message, but I don’t know how to get a MQTT sensor to show the correct values based on the json message. Maybe someone could help out?
Here is the message published to hermes/intent/intentname

{ "input" : "schalte das Licht Arbeitszimmer Keller aus", "intent" : { "intentName" : "ChangeLightState", "confidenceScore" : 1.0 }, "siteId" : "Tester", "id" : null, "slots" : [ { "entity" : "name", "value" : { "kind" : "Unknown", "value" : "Arbeitszimmer Keller" }, "slotName" : "name", "rawValue" : "arbeitszimmer keller", "confidence" : 1.0, "range" : { "start" : 18, "end" : 38, "rawStart" : 18, "rawEnd" : 38 } }, { "entity" : "state", "value" : { "kind" : "Unknown", "value" : "aus" }, "slotName" : "state", "rawValue" : "aus", "confidence" : 1.0, "range" : { "start" : 39, "end" : 42, "rawStart" : 39, "rawEnd" : 42 } } ], "sessionId" : "Tester-default-7672fba5-f36e-4251-a83c-acf1f1eb7bce", "customData" : "default", "asrTokens" : [ [ { "value" : "schalte", "confidence" : 1.0, "rangeStart" : 0, "rangeEnd" : 7, "time" : null }, { "value" : "das", "confidence" : 1.0, "rangeStart" : 8, "rangeEnd" : 11, "time" : null }, { "value" : "Licht", "confidence" : 1.0, "rangeStart" : 12, "rangeEnd" : 17, "time" : null }, { "value" : "Arbeitszimmer", "confidence" : 1.0, "rangeStart" : 18, "rangeEnd" : 31, "time" : null }, { "value" : "Keller", "confidence" : 1.0, "rangeStart" : 32, "rangeEnd" : 38, "time" : null }, { "value" : "aus", "confidence" : 1.0, "rangeStart" : 39, "rangeEnd" : 42, "time" : null } ] ], "asrConfidence" : 1.0, "rawInput" : "schalte das licht arbeitszimmer keller aus", "wakewordId" : "default", "lang" : null }

I would like to directly use the slotnames name and state as attributes of the sensor device, but don’t know how to adress them…
