@aktivomat said in what is possible with pimatic and my setup?:
so my next step is to get this little raspberry pi beast and just do it so i will just start and i’m quite sure i’ll (have to) come back soon here to this forum again with further stupid questions
sure! go ahead, buy a raspi 3 and an 8GB sd card.
just some little questions in advance:
if i have the lan-cube i don’t have to “flush” it with a special software to use it with pimatic
no special software flash needed. pimatic grabs the neccesary data directly from the qube. one thing to mention - the qube is in the same network, yes, but you are only allowed to have one open connection to the cube. that’s a restriction of the qube itself. so no parallel use of the max sodtware or the max internet gateway when using pimatic. but … who wants that anyways?!
2 relating to “eco button”… is this “emulation with buttons device and rules” self-explanatory?
not really self explanatory but not very hard to understand. you need to create a buttons device with some buttons. then you can use rules like
when button eco-mode is presed THEN set mode of Heizug1 = eco just for example. so you are able to have several scenarios. The hardware button itself does not work in pimatic!
but maybe it’s better first to start and then to ask
sure, go ahead! and if you face any problems come back and report! we are here to help
and as @Stokstaart said - it would be interesting to have some opinions from a “no developer and fresh non pimatic user”, since most of us are using pimatic for a long time and are prestressed with other homeautomation systems already.
