May I have another contact sensors for refrigerator door?


#29

Is it possible to choose speaking language?
I remember some media renderer app I could choose language (Ivona TTS) norwegian.
Is this possible? Or is it only english?


(Bobby) #30

There are 3 contact sensors now (generic, door and window). Do you need a fourth? What is your use case?


(Bobby) #31

I am not aware of a different language for tts, unless you use a 3rd party service. I remember too someone had mentioned before using a different service. I’ll look into it, but for now, it’s only English…


(Bobby) #32

Just a reminder, we need your feedback for the next major feature implementation… Should it be canceling ongoing reminders or notification prior to a timed reminders. The choice is yours to set the priority :smile:


#33

Speech settings from media renderer:

Its a very good and natural sounding for a bunch of languages, It would be really nice if you could consider implementing it… :grinning:


(Ray) #34

What are the differences between generic, door and windows? For the timer delay. I see “and continues to be open for… (optional)” but only under generic. Is that the timer delay you are talking about?


(Bobby) #35

They are all contact sensors but they each get different variables &contact, &doors and & windows for ad-hoc reports. The ‘generic’ group has the counter. The ‘continues to be…’ activates the counter.

The same counter is available for switches, locks, garage doors. The counter is in minutes.

TIP OF THE WEEK

Build complex status reports and trigger them when it matters most to you, all within the same app in TWO simple steps…

1.Building the report:

  • select Notification Type = Ad-hoc.
  • create the content of your report in the “Custom Text” section using &variables
  • select devices that will be used to populate the &variables
  • click DONE!

2.Triggering the report:

  • select Notification Type = Triggered Report
  • select the “Trigger” (event that will fire the Ad-hoc report)
  • select an “Output Method”
  • select your newly created “Ad-Hoc Report” (under “Run actions for this Ad-hoc Report”)
  • click DONE!

And that’s it, enjoy!


(Stephen Rossi) #37

Most of my ad-hoc variables are showing ‘null’.


(Bobby) #38

Two conditions must be met.

a. the Notification Type must be Ad-Hoc
b. devices must be selected for each variable

Example

  • for &lights… select switches…expected result X switches are ON
  • for &open … select contacts… expected result X sensors are OPEN
  • for &garage …select EITHER a garage door opener OR a relay with a contact sensor used to monitor the state …expected result …garage door state (OPEN or CLOSED)

NOTE. the values of &variables are a snapshot of actual states at the time the report triggers.

WARNING selecting a lot of devices may run up against the smart app running time out when generating the report preview…


(Bobby) #39

Thanks for pointing out this. I found the concept to be confusing, so I restricted the different contact sensors to be available ONLY for Ad-hoc reporting. Release R.0.0.6 will have better labelling.


(John) #40

Is there a FAQ or a Wiki page? Something to assist with setup and problem solving? After getting the app installed and running, I can’t get notifications to work.


(Bobby) #41

Sorry to hear that :slight_smile: No wiki at this time. But I’d be glad to assist here or in the PM… Can you tell me more about what is not working for you?


(Bobby) #42

UPDATE Alert :slight_smile:

Both Parent and Child Version R.0.0.5 have been released:

Parent App - added ability to cancel active retriggers from the app touch (the first in a series of enhancements that enable users to manually cancel retriggers). To see what is the LAST active retrigger, I added a new section on the bottom of Parent’s Main Page (to see what retrigger is active and can be canceled)
Child App - minor bug fixes. Added a new variable &last, that can be used with ‘Custom Text’. @Navat604, this may be interesting to you, as you can use it to know the time the door opened, even though you get the message only if the door remains open for x minutes.

The custom text would be:

&device has been &action since &last. This translates as 'the door has been open since 2:40 PM …

Enjoy!


(Bobby) #43

Main app with an active retrigger (every 15 minutes)

Clicking app touch (the little triangle on the right)

Active retrigger has been cleared (retrigger message no longer present as confirmation)
