Hubitat for AUS/NZ Chat

I literally have only 2 dimmers now, first one being Fibaro Dimmer and for whatever reason just decided to went bonker on me. I bought Aeotec Nano Dimmer and it works very good.
My pros for Aeotec are

  • the outside button compare to Fibaro B button which is inside, can be tricky to push
  • Aeotec light indicator is easier to see
  • Aeotec is cheaper :rofl:

Everyone is different and you must have installed Fibaro better.

I went with Aeotec because I was told Fibaro do some non standard stuff with their zwave implementation. Plus I don’t need the scene functions as we have echo‘s in almost every room.

Hi All, New to HE!

Just started off by tuya converting OTA a Brilliant Smart Wifi Dimmer Mech Switch (Smart Dimmer Mech - BrilliantSmart), which work perfectly.
Have connected it to HE via Tasmota Device manager and created a button on the dashboard.
All works fine.
When the physical button/switch is activated the connected downlight turns on but the HE dashboard does not change states to on to match the whats happening in the real world.

Is this suppose to happen? Can anyone help with if there is a setting for this?

Cheers

Did you load the HE compatible fork of Tasmota?

Hi at9, i loaded it with 8.1.0(lite) that was for HE, then copied the template from the Blakadder. On the Blakadder site (BrilliantSmart D350W Dimmer Template for Tasmota) it talks about mappings and dimmer range, i could not find where to enter this data.

Thanks

Refer to this thread mate. It has a Wiki and instructions etc. You will load the Tasmota 8.3.1 by Theo Arends & for Hubitat by markus-li HE firmware and you can post your template up etc too.

Hi All, I worked with @markus on a Tasmota for Hubitat Garage door controller. If this interests you then here is the Wiki with the details.

Thanks, jchurch. It took me a bit to reflash the firmware but I got it done. Flashed the minimal then the full firmware.
Feedback to the dashboard now works!!
Still trying to get the dimming part of the switch to function.
Is there an easy way to change the dimming range and the MCU mapping settings? Is this done thru the console?
Learning bit by bit.

Thanks guys.

Does anyone know any decent zigbee or z-wave button that can be used outdoors. Looking to use it as a doorbell button and it has to be waterproof to some extent.

I've got Aeotec Doorbell 6, however am looking for a separate additional button to work with my chromecast and other speakers.

Yes just copy and paste them in and it should then work.

thanks @at9 pasted it in to the console and the dimming function is now working!!

Thanks all who helped, i learnt a lot about tasmota trying to get this to work.

I personally use a modified Xiaomi contact sensor e.g. cut off the reed switch on the board and solder wires that connects back to a button. It's then installed in side a doorbell looking box with a hole drilled for the button. You could use other brand contact sensors for this as well its up to you. I like it because on the outside it looks like a normal dumb doorbell but behind the scenes there is a fair bit of intelligence :stuck_out_tongue:

FYI: this is completed using HE and NodeRed if you don't recognise the above but you can do something similar completely in HE. This is to just give you some ideas outside the norm :slight_smile:

I did't know you could open a video feed on a google hub. What's that node called?

There isn't a Node per say but instead you install CATT (see here) within your environment. I personally run it on my NodeRed server as it's Linux and then just use the bigssh node to call it.

Thats pretty impressive.

You gave me something to work on for next couple of weeks. This will keep me busy :slight_smile:

Excellent news, If you need any help just yell out. :slight_smile:

So had a day off today and decided to have a bash at getting my linktap to work with a simple momentary virtual switch and a RM rule. Bit of mucking about and got it working (turn on and then off after 1 minute using the duration passed though to it). Now to have a bash at writing a device driver so I can send an on and instant off rather than having to pass through a duration and wait until it hits it :slight_smile: Then to add a rule to look at my ecowitt soil moisture sensors (already available in HE) and I'm good to have it all automated.

@jchurch Hey mate, did you ever end up integrating your Daikin AC into HE?
I'm hitting brick walls...

Does anybody here use a smart air quality monitor that's available to buy in Aus at a reasonable price? I'm not coming up with any good options, so I might just put together something with an ESP32, but I thought I'd ask for recommendations here, first.

I implemented iZone which sits in front of the Daikin AC system but I paid a developer to do it so it's not publicly shared code. note, if you have only Daikin that's a whole different thing anyways.
