Node-RED nodes for hubitat

I added a few more virtual presence sensors, I'll watch the debug log and see what happens. :man_shrugging:

Can you name one AAAAA to make it first in the list?

Technically, shouldn't that be a FILLED IN status icon, as it DOES send events? :slight_smile:

Oh, I have complained about the one issue, but

GREAT WORK! I don't know if it really is faster, but it feels that way!


Arg ... I don't know why I totally reversed logic...
I will fix it, Thanks :+1:

Hey, if that is the worst thing I have to report, you are doing great.

I just accidentally made an infinite loop on my node-red 1.1.beta install with the new debug node status feature and a status node... Locked up my VM... Once again showing that most issues are user generated, not developer generated. lol

Maybe not related (or maybe), but I've just found a big issue, that duplicate ws connection if you redeploy. You may need to restart node-red

ok, here it goes. If the virtual presence device is present, and you hit arrived, the event is broadcast, but does not show up in events. It does show in logs. On HE that is.

I think it might be a HE bug.

Yes, I see that as well.

I don't think it is a bug, though. I believe the ws events happen before the de-dupe in the hub database (for increased speed). I seem to remember Hubitat explaining that before.

So if using ws, the end user needs to de-dupe events manually (if needed).

Yeah, Virtual contacts do the same thing... Not sure I agree with the model, but I will go to Node red and rework my presence code.

Just need an RBE node (set to msg.payload.value) after device nodes, when dedupe is needed, I guess.

Just upgraded to 1.1.1. I'll poke around at it today.

Can anyone share a Hue(magic) dashboard flow with a slider/color picker?

I've got one that works, except it doesnt update the dash slider if updated from the Hue app.

::: grrrrr ::::

alexa-remote2 is broke again... sick of this.

anyone got that bazooka to kill a fly idea to squash this? What are alternative options from this fragile house-of-cards palette?

After logging in, this is all i ever get hit with is "Please Enable Cookies to Continue". Cookies for the site are DEFINITELY enabled... I did that explicitly in Chrome's settings

Well, right after that rant I the "Cookie" method to work for the first time ever

Convoluted and annoying, but alas back and running.

My message flow that I worked so hard on is now operational again... yay Monday


I know I saw in one of the node red topics someone had Json to convert motion sensor and switches to true/false. Anyone know where it was?

I have used a function node for such situations - is this what you're looking for?

if(msg.payload.value === "open"){
msg.payload = true;
if(msg.payload.value === "closed"){
msg.payload = false;
return msg;

Yup thanks!
