Re. closing the doors:
Apparently I needed to be more patient or to lower the advanced settings indeed.
Re. starting the engine:
Pushing the power button on the coffee machine doesn’t trigger the flow to start the car. it seems that I need to give the order to the coffee machine through Google Home or the Homey app to switch off. This works perfectly.
Have looked on the forum but have not found it yet, however I would like to create a flow where my Volvo XC40 is only start charging when my solar panels deliver a certain number of Watt (to increase the usage of the own produced energy). I’ve played around a bit with the cards in the flow, however my car continues to immediately start charging when I plug the cable in my car and charging stations. At this moment I would like to pause charging and only start when the solar panels deliver a certain number of Watt.
Hey There, is it possible to use the triggers: When doors are locked and Unlocked in the “When” of a flow. Looking at the tekst in the app store the Volvo app should contain these triggers, but I cant’t find/ use them. Did I do anything wrong/ suggestions?
I just got a new XC60 hybrid myself after a few years without a Volvo car.
Don’t know how new your car is, mine is the model year 2022. Volvo has changed something in their APIs and these new cars are not available here. I also can’t add my car to Tibber’s app, when contacting their support they said the car is “too new” and they are talking to Volvo about how to solve this but don’t expect a solution in a near future.
Until recently the Volvo on call app on Homey worked fine with my XC40 T5 Recharge (incl. flows to start charging when certain requirements are fulfilled), however since a month or so flows related to charging are not working anymore and I get the warning “This is an ICE car and it doesn’t support charging!” in my Homey timeline. Obviously it’s not an ICE (internal combustion engine) car.
Oh, I have ordered a V60 T6 Recharge MY23. It will not be delivered within the next 9-10 months, but I do hope there will be a fix for the API. @Richard_B, if there are a a fix in the future, are you still dedicated to this app or do you need someone else to step up? Don’t know if there are any though
Hi is it possible to read out if the skylight (roof opening) is closed, I sometimes forget to close my roof and when it suddenly rains it would be nice to get at least an alert or even better can it be remotely closed.
I’m afraid no one knows the API call for that (at least not me). The entire Volvo On Call API used in this app is mapped out by various people including myself (reverse engineered). This app doesn’t use any official API from Volvo.
The start charging action uses an API endpoint with the path /overrideDelayCharging. Potentially you could use the delay charging action to stop charging? Only thing I can think of.
