Automagically @ Raspberry Pi release

Post by davka003 » Thu Jan 18, 2018 11:08 am

I have just uploaded a new image of Automagically for RPi.
Based on Raspbian it features a web interface to fully configure and run the system.
Support for input signals from a duo, possibility to among tellstick devices also have other devices that is turned on/off in other ways for example Wake-On-LAN. Basic support for controlling equipment over HDMI is also included. This will be the focus of next development effort.
USBUIRT support will probably also be included by a contributor to the project.

I am happy to answer questions here. If you have development suggestions please let me know and I will see if I can do it.

It's definitely an interesting project, but I would like a description of the implemented functionallity. How about scheduling, grouping of devices, commanding lights based on sunrise/sunset, triggering based on received remote commands/sensor data etc etc. A few screenshots would be nice as well. :)

Functionality that is currently implemented:
• Command devices supported by tellstick
• Tellstick and Tellstick Duo supported
• possibility to group devices and group can contain other groups
• support for scheduled events based on clock time or sunset/sunrise (with offset +- minutes)
• delayed commands (on in 60 minutes)
• presets that commands several devices to individual states on/off/dim level
• recieve temp and humidity from tellstick duo, present on command page
• use any received command from duo to trigger anything in the system
• possible to make http request that may contain read sensor value or command picked up from duo
• send Wake-on-LAN commands
• web page for control. Optimized for touch screen.
• no script writing, you never need to see s command prompt.
• use hdmi-CEC commands to trigger functionality
• send hdmi-CEC commands to interact with tv, amplifier etc

Current bugs
• system time is not changeable from GMT+1

There is currently a lot of documentation missing but I answer emails.

Today a new image has been uploaded.

The system time bug has been fixed and adding the following features:
* Remotes that are user customizable pages with controls for those devices you need. Can have a sepparate page for other persons/occasions.
* Optimized for small screen access using touch screen.
* Skinnable, change color of pretty much everything in the UI.

Hi,

I am not strong at Linux or Raspberry but I am trying to learn...
Have downloaded a Raspbian “wheezy” image that worked nicely, network and all but I really wanted to try your image since I have Tellstick duo:-)

I get errors while loading the network interface, and the system hangs!
Do you have any idea why the network does not load properly, tried to load wheezy again and the network interface worked fine again so there is nothing wrong with the network or Raspberry device..

This sounds very strange. When you say network do you mean the built in wired one or a wireless adapter?

I would check the md5 checksum of the image, perhaps something went a little bit wrong in download/unzip.
Automagically is built on the wheezy image (thou not the latest one) and I haven't made any big system/driver changes except installing support for tellstick.

Hello!

First, thanks for a great job with the image! I have got it working pretty good with my Duo and some Nexa components.

I am trying to install the Telluscenter on the image and have compiled the package as some threads here advice me to. It seems to work pretty well and Telluscenter is running. But it seems some functionality is missing. For example the connection to Tellus Live that I really want to use. There is no activation button in the systray icon. Also there is no temperature icon in this linux version of Telluscenter. I had that on my Mac.

Anyone had the same problems? How did you solve it? Is it possible to activate Tellus Live through some command or script?

It is from this very moment possible to connect to TelldusLive and control Automagically by the buttons on that web service.

Run an system update from the automagically administrative interface and then do the following steps:
* Go to System settings and find the tellduslive Enabled setting and set it to True, save
* Wait a couple of seconds and refresh the System settings page, it will (hopefully) now be set to Enabled = False again. But with Activation URL filled in.
* Copy the Activation URL and paste it into a new browser window.
* Follow the activation procedure at TelldusLive
* Set the tellduslive Enabled setting to True and save.

There is currently one problem and that is reporting device state back up to TelldusLive, it will happens once but never more before a restart. I hope to find a solution to this soon.

If you dont enable the plugin no commuication with TelldusLive will happen at all.

Please report any bugs found.

I made this available when I saw your previous post. Orignally I wanted the "Device Status reporting" to be working as well before releasing.

Last night the DataFetcher functionality was released. This makes it possible to integrate automagically with other systems as it can download and parse data to be used as triggers or to display in the interface.

It can also be used to fetch data from local files. For example OWFS for those that have installed that to the image.

Just out i curiosity - what do you need Telldus center for?
(if there is any missing functionality in the image I might add it if time permits)
