I am trying to install the NTP update driver on my Elevation 7, and I think I am half way there, but am confused.
I got the Dan Tapps groovy code from github, and I selected "raw code" then selected all and copied into clipboard.
Then I went to my Hubitat page, selected new driver, and pasted in said code and saved.
All this went OK as far as I can tell.
I have some questions,
#1, how do I change where the driver looks for my local time server (I know the IP address for my local Linux NTP server.)
#2, how do I get the Hubitat to execute the code? Does it just happen by magic?
I read somewhere I need to go to devices and install the driver there?? that doesn't sound right for the NTP driver.
#3, Is there a user interface I can access to change the variables for the driver, how do I get t it (like the IP address, the query rate, and maybe other stuff I can't think of right now?)
Of course, it would have been ideal if Hubitat simply put this in the setting page, but this seems like a great workaround solution.
Create a virtual device, and assign it this driver. Click Save and then change the configuration on the device page to meet your needs.
@CoolJavelin Take a look at this and pay attention to the section on Hubitat Package Manager. Will help you for the future Read the whole thing though, will help you with avoiding gotchas
Thanks aaiyar, and rlithgow1:
aaiyar, this is was exactly what I was looking for. I may have the port number wrong (I used 123, and I will have to check to see if that is correct) but I am well on my way to figuring it out.
rlithgow1, Thanks for pointing me to this noob page. I am reading through it now, and I am sure I will pick up a tip or 2 to help me along.
