Continuing the discussion from
[Now with code for Nut discovery + UPS & outlet status] Support for UPS?:
I have UPS data working in HE using the NUT driver and am wondering if anything has changed since
Is there another method to shut down the hub with security enabled when the UPS is low?
I have an automated script to take backups with hub authentication enabled. It should be pretty easy to adapt it to shut the hub down.
I know many are using my Hub Rebooter app, but some people were asking about a different use case. They wanted the ability to reboot and shutdown the hub on demand. For example, I heard some people talking about hooking up the hub to a UPS and using the UPS to power down the hub safely during a power failure.
This is a different use and requires a totally different solution, instead of an app, you need a driver so you have commands that you can call from RM or whatever.
So introducing, Hubitat…
This driver allows for shutting down and restarting a hub and supports security enabled hubs. I use this driver alongside a RM rule to shutdown when my UPS gets low (although on a security disabled hub).
Have you ever thought about adding them to a GitHub repository as an offsite backup?
Its in a github gist. This is my preferred method of backing up 1-off things instead of combining them in a full repo. I have gists for all of my 1-off scripts and snippets as an offsite backup with version control.
I was meaning adding the Hubitat backups to a repository, not the scripts.
Interesting idea, but to me, git is for version control, not backup. If my nas crashes, my hubitat backups will be the least of my problems.
