Smart Power Outlet, configure/disable energy reporting?


(Hugh Ehrenberg) #10

It’s brutal. I have two, reporting every momentary fluctuations load on landscape lighting from dusk to midnight. There’s no way to modify this?


(Scott G) #11

You’ll need to edit the configure section of the devicetype, specifically the “Zcl global send-me-a-report” line. I couldn’t figure out which devicetype is actually being used for these as there’s 3 in the ST Github.

In that Zcl line, after the 0x29 starts the reporting parameters. The ‘1’ means it will report as fast as every second, it’s the minimum reporting interval. The ‘600’ means it will report at least every 10 minutes regardless of whether anything changed. The number in the bracket is the minimum change that will be reported. I’m not sure how that value converts to an actual power value, but it seems to be very small.

Once you customize the devicetype, I think you’ll need to reset and re-pair the outlet. If you so without removing it from ST it should join back as the same device and get the new configure commands.


(Hugh Ehrenberg) #12

Thanks for this… I feel like the newb I am, but does this involve creating a new device type or editing the existing? If editing, how can I find the code for the device? I’ve looked at the api and can’t seem to find it. Thanks


(Hugh Ehrenberg) #13

and if picking new code from github, which did you use?


(Scott G) #14

You can check what devicetype it’s using by looking at the device info in My Devices section of the IDE, then look in the ST public Github repo that has all the devicetypes. You would edit that code and use it to create a new devicetype in the IDE. Assign the device to the new code, then reset and re-pair. It should re-pair using the new devicetype and get the updated configuration.

Hi

I was hoping someone could let me what steps to follow to how to “reset and re-pair the device”. I attempted to make the changes proposed to the send-me-a-report line by creating my own custom device type (under My Device Types) and linking it to the Smartthings outlet - device (under My Devices). Ideally if I can get the min change in value to work as expected I would be ecstatic (i.e. the proposed example below). Unfortunately, no matter what I change, the outlet does not change it’s reporting frequency. Note - I have changed all of the last 3 values (i.e. min report time, max and change in value) with no success (not illustrated above) I even commented out the code and republished to see if no reporting would take place but still no change to the device.

I unplugged device for 2 min and replugged in but nothing. How do I reset and re-pair the device… (delete it from all smartapps, delete the device and start again??).

Original Code: “zcl global send-me-a-report 0x0B04 0x050B 0x29 1 600 {05 00}”,
Proposed Code: “zcl global send-me-a-report 0x0B04 0x050B 0x29 1 600 {100}”,

I would greatly appreciate some assistance in this matter.

I have attempted to follow the instructions in FAQ: An Overview of Using Custom Code in SmartThings to no avail.

Hi Kennet

One quick fix for your new code line. Instead of {100} at the end, you’ll want to use {64 0000}. The zigbee code uses hex formatting, so 100 = 64 and you need the zeros after because there’s a 2nd payload input for timeout period.

To reset, unplug the outlet. Then while holding the button, plug the outlet in. When the LED comes on, release the button. It should now be reset. Start the Connect New Device procedure in the app and give it a few minutes. It probably won’t register that a new device is connected since the outlet already exists in your setup. (If you have Live Logging in the IDE up while the app searches for new devices, you should be able to see it rejoin.)

Below is the manual for the outlet mentions the reset procedure, although doesn’t call it that.

(Kennet) #17

Thanks Scott! I think I finally got it working thanks to your assistance. I am getting significantly less activities in my “Recently” section. I will continue to tweak to try and reduce it further.


(Simi510) #18

Here is the code to only display once an hour, Go to IDE and add device handler.
Then delete your connected smart outlet and re connect it and it should connect using the new device handler

https://graph.api.smartthings.com/ide/devices

to reset/reconnect device:
from sticks18 “To reset, unplug the outlet. Then while holding the button, plug the outlet in. When the LED comes on, release the button. It should now be reset. Start the Connect New Device procedure in the app and give it a few minutes. It probably won’t register that a new device is connected since the outlet already exists in your setup. (If you have Live Logging in the IDE up while the app searches for new devices, you should be able to see it rejoin.)”

Thanks, Bud…

But save me from diff-ing… What do did you change?

Reducing power reporting noise in a device type
(ActionTiles.com co-founder Terry @ActionTiles; GitHub: @cosmicpuppy) #21

Excellent!

Easy enough to also add parameters to the DTH and call “config”, right?

I’ll put together a pull request on the official one … only if you @Mike_Maxwell and @simi510 don’t plan on doing so yourselves???


(Mike Maxwell) #22

Go for it, It’s all you baby!
Be bold, make it a preference option, as it should be…


(Simi510) #23

please do. it was driving me nuts all the spam.


(ilker Aktuna) #24

Hi,

I can’t see any “600” or “01” within this part. How can I configure a different setting ?
Btw, has anyone made a configurable version of this ?

Thanks.


( I hate Mondays) #25

Last I tried to do that exact same change for the same exact devices, I ended up using some back channels and nothing came out of that either ;( It’s interesting to note that the official DTH defaults the device to very noisy, possibly affecting the ST cloud but the relevant people in ST didn’t really seem interested. Good luck :wink:


(Timothy Martin) #26

Yup, I posted my code in a different thread… This gives you settings in the app to turn power logging on/off entirely or change the threshold required for reported changes.

What i really want is the ability to have the live updated “tile” but just only show the larger more important changes in the “recent activity”. If anyone knows how to send events in such a way, that’d be amazing :wink:


(ilker Aktuna) #27

Hi,

I am trying your dev. handler.
But even though I select to show changes the app does not show any changes.
when I trun back to original code it shows updates. (too frequently)

where is the complete code for your dev. handler ?

thx.


(Timothy Martin) #28

Sure. It’s here:


Power/Energy Monitoring?
(ilker Aktuna) #29

Ok. I installed this and updated my device with this dev. handler. Then I used the settings to enable “show power in activity feed” and "only if power changes by 2"
However, now it does not show any changes , neither in activity feed nor the device interface
Why ?
