Help. I am looking for an edge driver that can signal the TTS engine in the Fully Kiosk API. It has worked great with the Fully Kiosk Browser Controller2 DTH but I am afraid that will stop working any day now. Has anyone seen anything written to handle it? I guess if someone has an edge driver that can call a local HTTP string to the API for fully, that would work, but I need it to show as an available TTS (speaker) so that I can use it for alerts/chimes.
Any more development on the govee driver? This would be awesome
No one is developing a Govee driver including the developer of the previous Govee DTH. Govee itself has said numerous times that it is working on an official integration and the then backtracked each time so any hopes of Govee working with smartthings outside of IFTT is pretty much dead in the water.
Yes thats what I thought and was hopeful that had changed. Govee have always promised integration but never delivered
I’m looking for a edge driver for echo/wion wifi plugs, if someone could point me in the right direction a b d or make one you would be my hero been looking all over for an integration fort them cheers
Hey Everyone! There used to be a smartapp for Ambient Weather - Personal Weather Stations. Wondering if we can get an Edge Driver that will support AW.
On their website it looks like they might be looking for someone to work with to create it.
Edge on a hub is sandboxed to only allow network connections to devices on the local LAN. It can’t talk to an API on the internet (aka the cloud). You’d need an intermediary device/machine to do the communication to the ambientweather API and then get that data back into an Edge driver using various methods. You could do it via proxy, or some other protocol (http, mqtt, etc).
Or you could write a new SmartApp to do something similar, hosted on a local machine or cloud based engine (aws, some other cloud resource capable of running the SmartApp in the language/environment you chose to use).
Has anyone looked into making an edge driver for a DLNA device, like the Fabriq speaker? There was an app in the past Media Renderer Events that let me use TTS to announce things like contact status changes.
Does anybody still use a Samsung R3 multi room speaker?
I use mine for announcements, but I’m wondering if it will still work with an edge driver. Currently it is still using groovy I guess.
I have a few Samsung Multiroom speakers which I’ve been using for notifications, this is currently working on IDE using LAN Samsung Audio. A few days ago all my speakers doubled up and appeared in No Room Assigned with a SamsungAudio Edge driver which was added through the SmartThings Drivers (Beta) channel. I have tried using these doubled up “Edge” speakers for notifications but they do not seem to work, I may need to delete the old “IDE” speakers for this to work but I’d rather wait and try that when i am forced to.
Several people requested an edge driver for Awair air quality sensors. Here’s one:
Hi - sorry for not responding earlier, but just seeing your post regarding Ambient Weather. If there is still interest in this, I could look at adding support for this source to my Edge weather driver.
It does however require that you run a bridge app on an always-on LAN computer, so that the driver can get to the internet.
Is there a simple edge driver somewhere that supports http(s) temperature readings with frequent updates?
If not, can someone create one?
I think this is a very frequent solution desired for different use-cases with home-made equipment. It would be even better if it could support rain and other values as well.
Marianos drivers for HTTP integration can read values, but I haven’t found a solution that allows me to create a thermometer out of that (not even a virtual that I feed the values to). That would be an alternative if possible, but that driver is a bit limited as well as it requires JSON for the thermometer.
Any ideas of alternatives, that does not include becoming a developer?
The question above is a generalization of what I really am planning to do and that is to interact with Domoticz. But temperature is my major pain-point today.
Maybe @TAustin HTTP Devices driver is solution for your use case
HTTPDevices/README.md at main · toddaustin07/HTTPDevices · GitHub
It looks interesting, but it is clearly stated that it is only sending requests, not capable of receiving data.
I will definitely test what it is good for though.
Take a look at the “edge services“ quick browse list in the community-created wiki. Several people have created projects which are capable of sending and receiving.
After that, if you don’t find an existing project which meets your needs, I suggest you start your own thread under projects, so you can go deeper into the whole process you were looking at. We’re starting to get sort of off-topic for this thread, which is just a request for a specific edge driver.
If you end up deciding you need to start a new thread, you can put it in the following section of the forum:
Hi - I can probably help you.
The challenge with receiving values for something like temperature via HTTP is that Edge drivers cannot request a specific port number for HTTP communications. Therefore, whatever it is that is sending the requests to the Edge driver, doesn’t know what port number to use. And even if you managed to find that out, it would change any time the driver is restarted for whatever reason (hub reboot, driver update, etc.).
That may be more than you wanted to know, but with that said, there are ways around this. One is to use a simple bridging app that I have that you can run on whatever computer is sending the requests. It will act as a proxy between your app and the Edge driver, such that your app doesn’t need to know the port number.
The other solution to this is to use MQTT, which is a cleaner solution, but your sending app would need to support that.
Feel free to direct message me if you want to pursue either solution and I’m happy to help.
Ive been looking for something similar to what @Jan_Backman is asking for and hoped to find something that worked with the EdgeBridge as I already use it, @TAustin, I havn’t asked as I didnt want to appear cheeky after you very kindly created the Lan Contact Device Driver (my last request) but a Lan Temperature Device Driver with temperature and humidity support would make a great addition to the 4 already supported Lan Device Drivers…
Sure, I’ll have a look at it.
