Everything that doesn't fit elsewhere
pimatic-iframe Plugin

is it possible to let the iframe react on a event beside the refresh by time function?

Currently I have realized it by a script which is observing the snap folder of my cam. When a new snapshot file is created then the file will be moved renamed to an other folder.
The iframe plugin reads every 2 seconds from there.

while inotifywait -e create "/$snapTerrasse" do cd /$snapTerrasse cp -f `ls -rt1 | tail -1` /$picTarget/terrasse.jpg done

I am looking for a way to implement such function directly in the plugin, but I have no clue how to do that.

[solved] not able to do a simple pimatic installation on raspi 3B+

Sorry, have to open this thread again.
My post of yesterday based on a mistake by me. I used the 3B in this test, not the 3B+.

Today now I tried the 3B+, installing node Version 8.15.0 first.
But with this it is not possible to install pimatic, neither 9.42, 9.43 or 9.44.

These are the message:
npm install pimatic --prefix pimatic-app --production
log.progressEnabled = log.gauge.isEnabled()

TypeError: log.gauge.isEnabled is not a function

Is there a problem with the installation routine or do i something wrong.

Thanks again and have a nice weekend.

Manually monitor energy consumtion

Is it somehow possible to store a variable into database with a specified date? My idea is to monitor my energy consumption manually. I have stored my energy consumption by now within an excel sheet and I want transfer these data to a pimatic variable. In future it would be nice to just read the actual value of the energy meter and store it by a variable input device into database. Afterwards the energy consumption should be calculated by the difference of the last two values and stored dates of the values.

Thank you.
