Can anyone easily convert this ST code to HE?


Hello this is a Smartapp for ST that monitors a multi-sensor for acceleration and vibration to monitor your washer... I’d like to use it in HE... Thank you

That's not the whole file. Can't work on it without every file and all it's content.


Thank you, I just updated it


Before everybody jumps in here and starts helping you with this.. Did you try running it as is? what errors did you get?


I did not know I could do that...


That's why I wanted to see the entire file.


I am not home to test, but I will tonight...
I edited the post, is the file correct?


OK I got this error:

No signature of method: Script1.input() is applicable for argument types: (java.util.LinkedHashMap, java.lang.String, java.lang.String, Script1$_run_closure1$_closure6$_closure9) values: [[title:Send notifications to], recipients, contact, Script1$_run_closure1$_closure6$_closure9@1d9eab9] Possible solutions: inspect(), wait(), run(), run(), any(), find() on line 37


This sounds like a very convenient app indeed but if it turns out to be too difficult or time consuming to port the app, you should be able to get the same results with a rule machine rule and a virtual switch I think.

I say this because I wanted the knock knock app from smartthings so I could have my multisensor thats on my front door let me know when there's a knock at the door. Turns out someone else in the community had already gotten it done with 2 rules and a virtual switch and it works flawlessly with 0 accidental triggers (from opening or closing the door).


Not sure if you did a search but laundry monitor apps are available in HE community, ported or using message central app from cobra


I think you're going to need to remove any references to the old Contact Book from ST. Even ST no longer supports the contact book.


I did but they are all power monitor driven



Andy, will message central send notification using a vibration sensor as a trigger for laundry? I use it but with power. Thanks.


No, this is not a feature I have ever been asked for.



I looked at this to port for you but it's not worth it. You would get no additional flexibility using this compared to setting up a rule (or rules) in RM.

Create a rule like this:

If the thing stops moving for 90 seconds it notifies. If you want to make it more robust you can have a rule where it first must be active for 90 seconds which then starts a second rule. If you are really in love with the old app then it will need the contact book replaced by more generic notification options as well as the modes bit to be updated to handle HE modes.
