You’re very welcome, Mats. I liked this puzzle!
Hello, to my experience in these days you can only add that devices… no ways
First i am really happy with this app.
Now i have added a new device with volume options.
How can i make i flow that send de volume options to a ir blaster?
Using a volume slider is kinda possible, but won’t work very well imho. It sends only 1 command at a time, which is: step up (or down) to the IR blaster.
For a Tuya wifi2IR unit, I’ve created a Vol+ and a Vol- virtual knob to control my receiver
I want to use these buttons.
Maybe you can re-use the flow I created long time ago to build a volumebutton for my chromecast
it is possible to add a Solar-VD which is shows on top of the energy screen.
But I haven’t found a smart meter VD. Only default energy/power sensors, which are shows as devices.
Is it possible to add a new device type “smart meter” with option “cumulative”: true to add a virtual smart meter which is shows on top of the energy screen showing the overall usage of the house?
it is possible also for the energy meter? I set up my smartmeter with mqtt as a VD energy meter.
I’m not sure what you mean, but a measure_power VD is available
In Dutch, “Vermogen” = Power (current power usage)
(Don’t use “Energiemeter” = Power meter (total power) for this)
Hi, sure, but it is only one consumer (like plugs) which are shown im the energy screen in their zone.
A smartmeter would be shown on top.
Really like this app and use is allot. Now I’m running to an issue (I want something that isn’t possible).
Let’s say I making a virtual sensor. And use power (kWh) and I want to have more than one inside this. Is there a possibility to get more than 1 of the same inside a device?
It’s something like this (power by the hour)
< group > app
I would like to update the alarm_contact capability of a virtual sensor using homeyScript (I basically call an API that returns if door is open or closed and I want to update the open/closed status) but as stated in a previous post it’s blocked somehow by the Virtual Device app (capabilities are not settable).
Did anyone manage to do such thing ? any advice .
Maybe if you describe in a broader way what you want to do, it’s easyer to help you?
Is it possible to add the option on/off to device class sensor?
With that option I can combine virtual light switches with luminance. Now I have to create one virtual device for both.
I have seen this option but it does not work for what I want.
What I want is a virtual light switch that measures the luminance of a sensor that triggers that light switch when the luminance is blow a certain level.
I just added now a virtual device with device class light like you mentioned. When I create a flow like I have done multiple times for virtual sensors for setting a value for a virtual sensor It doesn’t work.
luminance(helderheid) of my aqara sensor.
I also can’t choose a status indicator for this device. Not adjustable.
Ah, now I see what you’d like.
A sensor, in this case Luminance, and its device tile should be capable to switch on / off by pressing it.
A virtual light device, with a pre-selectable sensor function in it, so you could feed a Luminance value to it.
Only Arjan can say if this is even possible.
