@bertreb Should not be necessary as we are only interested in the required node version listed in the upgrade package on the remote site. Then again, my logic is not necessarily logical ;).

RaspBee new devices not working

@TeeS hey. I refactored the plug-in in the last version. The new multi device supports the button devices. You can react to the button events with the “switch” attribute.

switch of raspbee_device_name is "2007"

The reason is because some button devices also have other sensors like temperature built in. So they can be used as well. The old device type is still there and works, only if you change the type during autodiscover the prefilled fields will be emptied.

You have a cool idea about pimatic?
control visibility via device status

Its solved.

Before I reloaded Pimatic in the browser every time when I changed something and that didn’t help.

Now that I changed ALL css rules as adviced AND reloaded pimatic in the browser all works as expected.

Thanks for the support and advises!!!

6. Homeduino RF Devices Turnwheel Codes

The following is a transcript of an earlier post from @leader21 on github:

Having another sleepless night and trying to do something useful though, so I created a table with all 256 Intertechno / Trust / KaKu / CoCo / Düwi etc. turnwheel codes. The devices are having two wheels from A-P and 1-16, so there are 256 possible codes, looks similar like this here :


Here are all 256 possible turnwheel codes:

turnwheel codes

In the table the ID is the first number, then comes the UNIT.
So lets say, you are setting up a turn wheel code G-5, the table says ID 22 | UNIT 19
Your device at the config.json would look like this:

{ "id": "switch-livingroom", "name": "Light Switch Livingroom", "class": "HomeduinoRFSwitch", "protocols": [ { "name": "switch4", "options": { "unit": 19, "id": 22 } } ] },

Hope this helps to set up some switches or devices without having a receiver hooked up at your hardware setup.

@zoltán if I’m not mistaking it’s not the plugin but the one-wire library that has GPIO4 as default.

It’s something in config.txt
