Just info: Now I wanted to group them, so I get only one device with an alarm status on my dash, like my doorcontacts and PIR’s, but the group app doesn’t provide for alarm_offline sensor capability yet.
Ah I get that. I asked Arjan the other day if he could add measure_ph to the Virtual Devices app, but he sticks with the default capabilities provided by Athom, otherwise he would be busy all day to add capabilities
This is available in Group app at the moment (enough alarms though ):
What a great app, thank you for the development! I’ve been searching long foe a app with this functions.
I use it to check whether my TV is on or not when my lights go off in the evening. If so, a few lights stay on. As the tv switches off, those lights go off as well. I check if the fixed IP address changes to offline.
But all of a sudden, the lights stay on, even when the tv is off for some time. Do I have to restart the app once in a while or so? Do you know this, will that solve the problem?
I’m using the latest version of the app.
I didn’t know/realize it can detect the internet connection also.
But it only works with my own internet IP address, not with f.i. 188.8.131.52, or both www.athom.com IP’s.
But, using the TCP device port 80 works for webservers
By the way, the memory graph is still around 8MB’s
Last night as the tv was turned off, the lights went off as planned. I installed the test version of the app.
We don’t know whether it did function correctly this time because of the new app. Maybe restarting the old app would have been good enough. I will keep an eye on it the coming days and see what happens.
As far as I can see arping, like ping, uses low level network functions that are not available to a Homey app. So I don’t think it is possible to add it unless Athom provide an API into those functions.
If you have a firewall that complete blocks access to ports then neither will work.
The IP option checks port 1 and just looks for any kind of response, even if it is a rejection as when the PC is switched off nothing is returned and the request times out.
The TCP option checks the specified port but requires a valid response.
