a while back @tonesto7 had kindly invited me to participate in his community smartapp installer beta. took me a while to wrap up some ongoing work and put the manifest together so rooms manager/rooms occupancy could be included in this really cool installer.
simplifies smartapp install enormously … no more mucking around in the IDE. check it out here:
thanks much to @tonesto7 for the invite and honored to be included in the beta alongside some of the communitys most popular smartapps.
when @pmusselman asked me if i would port rooms manager/occupancy over to hubitat i had to check out hubitat a bit.
after checking out hubitat i liked what i see specially as you all may have already noticed i prefer local processing over cloud processing for event handling. then chatted with @SBDOBRESCU a bit over on the hubitat forum with the net result that my hubitat hub is now ordered and hopefully on its way real soon.
guess what that means?
rooms manager/occupancy will be also supporting hubitat. dont have a timeline for right now but will post over on the hubitat forum if any of you end up on the same path.
note i have no intention of deprecating ST support. so if you are here rest assured i will continue to support ST same as i have been.
Hi bangali, I have just stumbled across your fantastic Smartapp and it promises to satisfy most of my needs.
I am having a number of problems though. I have trawled through previous posts to try and find a solution, however it seems that most people are having success with this Smartapp.
The problems I am experiencing are as follows
I have successfully setup two rooms to function very basically i.e When motion is detected, turn on the light. When motion inactive check for motion for 30 seconds and then turn off the light. I haven’t implemented any rules. This works fine. However when I try to create a third room, I apply the same settings, but it doesn’t turn the light on. When I have a look at ‘all settings’, I see that it has not created a rule like the first 2 rooms. If I try and create a rule, it shows as 1:Disabled=true State=[occupied,engaged] ON=1 Level=70 but still doesn’t work. Also why would Disabled=true when I have it enabled?
When I try and delete rooms it shows ‘An unexpected error occurred’. I guessed that may be because a room is created as a device. I therefore tried to delete the device, but still get error. How to I remove the Smartapp?
Bangali, Big thank you for all your continued hard work. I’ve been playing with your Rooms Manager and have really started to get some great intergrations going with multi sensors, lights, speakers, Harmony & Webcore pistons. If it wasnt for the likes of you devs guys then mere mortals like myself would never really get the full potential out of ST and our gadgets. With blinds and thermostats next on the list, your work on Rooms has really met my expectations for IoT.
others have asked me this question as well and i have debated putting up a paypal link or an wallet address. just hesitating because dont want users to think that a donation is required or expected. at the same time if a user donates because the app extends the value they get from their home automation then as a dev that does make you feel good.
