General Discussion / Re: Elk event driver
« Last post by dvand on October 26, 2014, 05:04:53 pm »
What I've ended up doing is using the http driver to post event updates to a simple webform which in turn sends a mqtt message to the broker.

It's very hackish and seems to have a some slight delays, not sure if they are on the elve side or the server side.

I think what i may do is use either a javascript or perl library to broadcast elk event changes because all i'm really using elve for now is a few rules all related to my elk alarm system.

Well, an unlimited number of inputs first off. That's the number 1 positive about Arduino in general but also, they have any kind of sensor you can ever want. Personally I'm thinking of putting their accelorometers on the top slat of my blinds so I can have feedback as to the position of the blinds. I use Somfy'sRTS and occasionally one blind might not open/close. Right now I basically send the commands 3 times with a delay in between which usually catches any mistakes but by knowing the actual position, I can then use that to resend the command needed.

I think it would be cool to have a driver that broadcast events to a broker using something like mqtt.

Maybe using m2mqtt.  https://m2mqtt.codeplex.com/

I got something basic going where I store the date time of zone status changes.  then I subtract current status change date time from the stored to get duration.  I keep updating the stored value when ever a current event occurs.  that way I always have a way to get current duration. I have this info on a ts so I really know when the kids went down for naps and how long they slept for.

is your 'music zone' a global variable cause it looks like the control is looking for a local variable.  try changing to something like 'vars.musicZone' assuming your global variable driver is nicknamed vars. Otherwise you can copy the value from global to local on screen initialization.

do you need to go back to viewer after vlc? I had issues trying to launch stuff back in the day from the desktop app. maybe you could invoke something that can trigger event ghost.  event ghost has been able to solve a lot of my touch screen to remote pc woes.

cool idea.  I haven't messed around with arduino much. What kind of things would you like to see and maybe some ideas for uses.

Anyone coming up with a driver for Arduino yet?
