I think I have to sleep on it. Maybe I will understand it better in the morning.
Thank you for your replies.
Hi, I tested your messages to a MqttDimmer device and got no errors.
If you want to share info, i’m interested in your setup.
Something like Google Assistant -> node-red-nora -> mqttBroker or directly Pimatic -> ? -> shutter
How the shutter and the MqttDimmer are communicating is not clear to me.
A patch in MqttDimmer should be easy, but i don’t see where in MqttDimmer the problem is. A better understanding of the message flow could help.
Okay, so then it might just be my installation for some reason.
The flow goes from Google Home. To the NORA service which then sends the message above to node red on my raspberry pi. The node red then transmit this message to mqtt on the above mentioned topic, which I am reusing from when I set up the gBridge service. The mqtt message is then received in pimatic by a mqtt dimmer device, which then in turn controls (using rules) a raspbee dimmer device which then controls my ikea zigbee blinds.
The mqtt messages works perfectly with other devices that are only on or off or Dimming. The problem only occurs on this open close device, as it sends this json message, which makes the error in pimatic.
I tried quickly to isolate the message in node red, but was not successful. I might watch some tutorials on the subject tonight.
Thanks for the info. Are the Ikea blinds controlled via a Tradfri gateway or Raspbee? Update: youre using a Raspbee dimmer, thats answers my question. If you would have used the Tradfri gateway, you could control the blinds directly
I don’t use it but as far as I know you could also use the Pimatic Api directly from node-red (node-red-contrib-pimatic)
Looks like your connection to pimatic forum was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
