Can someone modify the big switch app to call Hello Home Phrases?


(Ben Goodman) #1

I am trying to figure a way to call hello home phrases from the dashboard. I can create a virtual switch, put it in the lights and switches dashboard and then associate the big switch smart app with it. Triggering the virtual switch would trigger the big switch and if the big switch could run a hello home phrase we would be good to go. So can someone modify the smartapp to trigger a hello home phrase instead of individual switches?

I think I’m following your question…you can add a:

sendNotificationEvent("some phrase")

Is that what you’re looking for?


(Ben Goodman) #3

Will this add the ability to set a hello home phrase as a response the the triggering of the Big switch app?


(leftride) #4

Yes, and to be more specific, something like:

def onHandler(evt) {
	log.debug evt.value
	log.debug onSwitches()
	onSwitches()?.on()
	sendNotificationEvent("Big Switch On")
}

def offHandler(evt) {
	log.debug evt.value
	log.debug offSwitches()
	offSwitches()?.off()
	sendNotificationEvent("Big Switch Off")
}

I feel like I am really close (not a coder)…

@bgoodman Give this a try :smile:

def onHandler(evt) {
log.debug evt.value
log.debug onSwitches()
onSwitches()?.on()
location.helloHome.execute(settings.HHPhrase)
}

sendnotificationevent only sends an output to the hello home log.


(Ben Goodman) #7

Here is what I have now… AM I properly capturing the state of the master switch?

preferences {
page(name: “selectPhrases”)
}

def selectPhrases() {
def configured = (settings.HHPhrase)
dynamicPage(name: “selectPhrases”, title: “Configure Your Hello Home Phrase.”, install: configured, uninstall: true) {
def phrases = location.helloHome?.getPhrases()*.label
if (phrases) {
phrases.sort()
section(“When this switch is turned on or off”) {
input “master”, “capability.switch”, title: “Where?”
}
section(“Hello Home Actions”) {
log.trace phrases
input “HHPhrase”, “enum”, title: “Enter Hello Home Phrase”, required: true, options: phrases, refreshAfterSelection:true
}
}
}
}
def installed()
{
subscribe(master, “switch.on”, onHandler)
subscribe(master, “switch.off”, offHandler)
}

def updated()
{
unsubscribe()
subscribe(master, “switch.on”, onHandler)
subscribe(master, “switch.off”, offHandler)
}

def onHandler(evt) {
log.debug evt.value
log.debug onSwitches()
onSwitches()?.on()
location.helloHome.execute(settings.HHPhrase)
}


(leftride) #8

Are you trying to actually turn anything on? You’re referencing the function: onSwitches(), but you’ve stripped it out of your code.

def onHandler(evt) { log.debug evt.value //log.debug onSwitches() //onSwitches()?.on() sendNotificationEvent(HHPhrase) }

That should work, I’m testing your code now though.

When the Master switch turns on, I want to fire the configured Hello Home Phrase… The Hello Home Phrase should do all the turning on

(Tim Slagle) #10

EDIT: Messed up the define variable. You need to define the configured hello home phrases there. I forgot those. woops :frowning:

This should get you what you need. Tes it and let me know if it works. I am at work right now and the emluator in the IDE doesn’t work from my office. Darn Firewalls;)

def offHandler(evt) {

}

(leftride) #11

here you go.

A few things changed:

  • the ‘configured’ value needed to be set to ‘true’ the way it was being used in the dynamic page, I think that was the biggest problem since it wasn’t allowing the events to fire.
  • using Tim’s comments around using ‘location.helloHome.execute’ will actually set the hello home phrase, my suggestion was just displaying the text, which I’ve used for basically ‘logging’.
  • I removed your references to onSwitches since it’s been removed from the code
  • I added an offHandler to remove a warning

(Tim Slagle) #12

also. in reply to my last reply. If you want hello home to tell you what it is doing. add this to each event.

sendNotificationEvent(“Performing “${HHPhraseOn}” because ${master} turned on.”)


(Ben Goodman) #13

OK, used the code from at @leftride and added @tslagle13 's notification (Thank You guys both so much)… No errors in the simulator. Also no reaction in the console when the master switch flips… Should I see one? I am guessing the simulator may not support Hello Home to see the results there.


(Tim Slagle) #14

The simultaor should recognize the switch being turned on and off, make sure you select the right switch in the IDE though. Keep in mind. Without “def configured = (settings.HHPhraseOff && settings.HHPhraseOn)” this code will not work as the script won’t know what phrase to run. I have this exact screnario working in a much larger app with many more variables. I pulled the code directly from there for the prefrences page.

Here is a working app i have so you can see how things work in full scale.

Feel free to copy and paste from here as needed.

The only difference is this app monitors presence instead of a switch variable.


(Ben Goodman) #15

Gonna play with it a little… By the way… Love that App, it is exactly what ST needs… My only reccomentdation, is that I would love to be able to pick different phrases based on which individual sensor is home. Example… I am home but wife is away, run one phrase, wife is home, but I am away run a different one… it seem like you are going in that direction. I think running a different phrase if one person is home isn’t as useful if you don’t act based on which person is home.


(Ben Goodman) #16

OK… What I think I’m doing…

section(“When this switch is turned on or off”) {
input “master”, “capability.switch”, title: “Where?”
}

Having the user select which switch will initiate the Hello Home Phrase

section(“Hello Home Actions”) {
log.trace phrases
input “HHPhrase”, “enum”, title: “Enter Hello Home Phrase”, required: true, options: phrases, refreshAfterSelection:true
}

Having the User select the Hello Home Phrase they want to execute.

def installed()
{
subscribe(settings.master, “switch.on”, onHandler)
subscribe(settings.master, “switch.off”, offHandler)
}

def updated()
{
unsubscribe()
subscribe(master, “switch.on”, onHandler)
subscribe(master, “switch.off”, offHandler)
}

Subscribing to the on and off events from the Switch the user selected

def onHandler(evt) {
log.debug evt.value
sendNotificationEvent(“Performing “${HHPhraseOn}” because ${master} turned on.”)
location.helloHome.execute(settings.HHPhrase)
}

def offHandler(evt) {
log.debug evt.value
}

If the Switch on event is detected, executing the Hello Home Phrase the user selected If a switch off event is detected it is logged, but no activity.

There is obviously something I am missing… I don’t see the on or off action if I select anything but the “Master” Virtual switch in the simulator. and event then I don’t see anything representing the execution of the Hello Phrase.

I didn’t really understand where I would put “def configured = (settings.HHPhraseOff && settings.HHPhraseOn)” and why.


(leftride) #17

Double check your dynamic page definition:

dynamicPage(name: "selectPhrases", title: "Configure Your Hello Home Phrase.", install: true, uninstall: true)

Make sure install is set to true, originally you were setting that value to configured and I too noticed the event wasn’t firing.

Ok, here is a tested and verified app. Does excatly what you want it to do. When a switch turns off it runs XYS hello home phrase, when a switch turns on it runs XYZ hello home phrase.

copy and past all of it into your app and publish it for yourself and you will be able to install it from your apps on your mobile device. I will also publish it to the shared apps.

@tslagle13 It Worked Perfect! I created a virtual switch via the on/off button tile and I put it in my dashboard, and now I can call Hello Home Phrases from the Dashboard and from an IFTTT workflow! Also I want that other app when you are done with it!

Thank You @leftride too!

@bgoodman

Glad to hear it worked for you!!

Ive been using the other app for a few days now. I just published the away/home app to the publoished apps on the IDE. You can grab it from there. Let me know if you see any issues with it. Ive been using it for about a week and I haven’t seen any problems. I would recomend keeping notifications on so you can tell whats happening. (Just in case)

Let me know how it works out for you. If it works out for you I will submit it to smartthings for addition to the publicly available apps in the mobile app. As for the changes you mentioned, it would be way to hard to fit all the logic in there for that. The logic in this one is pretty crazy as it is. I’m good, but not that good :wink:
