I made small SmartApp and DTH. If you need, just test and give me a advice.
5/16/2017 - support multiple Harmony-hub(v0.1.5.000)
5/22/2017 - added SmartPlug’s power monitoring to synchronize device state
8/30/2017 - added Harmony API server’s IP changing menu and Contact Sensor monitoring mode to synchronize device state
KuKuHarmony is a SmartApp give users the ability to control each device by Logitech Harmony.
It works based on ‘Harmony API’
With KuKuHarmony based on ‘Harmony API’, you can turn on and turn off devices individually.
The device’s other commands are also support.
ex) volume up/down, channel up/down, FanSpeed, Menu and so on
Provide a device’s Virtual device
Turn on/off each device(not a activity)
Control other commands also
State synchronization by Smart Plugs power or Contact Sensors state
Make a container and run
docker run -ti --net=host --name harmony-api turlvo/harmony-api:latest /home/harmony-api/harmony-api/script/server
(If harmony-api’s container is exit by before step, just start a container using ‘docker start’ command)
So if im reading this correctly this allows me to control devices that my harmony hub is connected to. So say its connected to my fire stick, I can control it with smart things?
If so does is make a device for it as well?
Does fire stick be controlled by Harmony Hub through IrDA or Bluetooth?
(The question means that if Harmony Hub can control fire stick, SmartThings’s Thing also control fire stick._
If that, Yes it is.
This SmartApp create a SmartThings Virtual Device Thing and
that support to control all devices that connected to Harmony hub.
If added a new Device Type DTH, it maybe support almost all command that stored in Harmony Hub’s device.
I made a 6 default Device Type’s DTH.
ex) default(on/off only), airconditioner, fan, robotking, TV, STB
(In your case such as fire stick, it seems that TV or STB Device Type proper to you.)
So if somebody want to other device’s type DTH, I will update that.
below control flow
Vritual Device Thing in SmartThings -> ‘Harmony-API’ server -> Harmony-Hub – [IrDA or Bluetooth] -> Device
Just tried this out briefly. Very good, all works OK so far.
I had the Harmony API server already set up and had done a very basic version of what this SmartApp does, but KuKuHarmony does it a lot better. If your Harmony hub is controlling your devices via itself, the IR blasters or bluetooth (it won’t control devices via the remote itself, commands must go through the hub) then this app can access device actions not just the Activities.
Edit: Being able to mix devices into one DTH would be handy though as, in my case, different media actions are controlled by different devices, i.e. Sat Box for Menu/Guide button and Amp for Volume etc. That said, all I did was some http buttons so your work is far more refined.
What a surprise your quick adapting capability.
The Logitech should support this function officially.
Until Logitech support this officially, I hope that it is helpful to other people using Harmony Hub and SmartThings.
I also have a idea that user can add a button and made a custom DTH.
Thank you for your report.
I found that Synology supports Docker Application T.T
Although I tried to run harmony-api server through Synology Docker with jonmaddox/harmony-api docker image,
it looks like that can not find Harmony-hub.
Well like I said, a few clicks to set up, all I did was pull down jonmaddox/harmony-api docker image, then created a container with it, must be set for host network access, ran it and it found my hub, that’s it really. go to the ip and port address to confirm api is running. Also the terminal will show it updating periodically too.
