HABApp - Easy automation with openHAB

Yes. I succesfully created the venv.

Creation of the venv works offline - can you try installing these packages by hand?

If i try to install pydantic it installs the 0.1 version…

Sorry I think it’s my fault. I have installed python 3.5. But I don’t know if I can upgrade to 3.6 on my pi 3…

It’s possible, but you have to install it manually and not through apt.
There are plenty of tutorials available, you can then even go for python 3.7 or python 3.8 which is even better.

Have you succeeded? Otherwise you can always spin up a docker container.

0.13.1
This version shows “0.13.1 Dev” because I forgot to change the version -.-

Changes

  • If loading of an item fails HABApp doesn’t skip loading of all items any more
  • Added Loghandler: HABApp.core.lib.handler.MidnightRotatingFileHandler:
    A file handler that waits until the file has a certain size and then rotates at midnight.
    This is the default when the logging.yml gets created
    Made this the default file handler for logging.
  • Removed timeout for connection to openhab
  • Added example how to check Thing status

This is a very small release

0.13.2

  • Changed default value in HABApp configuration for “wait_for_openhab” to “True”
  • Improved readability of exceptions in the logs
  • Updated packages astral, pytz, tzlocal, stackprinter and ujson

0.14.0

  • completely reworked openhab connection (necessary for new features)
  • updated docs
  • added plugin that shows an overview for Things and Z-Wave

Some time after the first connect a small overview over Things and Z-Wave specific Things will be shown:

Hi, found this app the other day and I’m starting to play with it. Somewhere in the thread I saw that channel events e.g. Astro sunrise start, Civil dusk end aren’t currently supported.

Is this still true? If so, how do I fire a rule at some of the more obscure astro events - e.g. civil dusk start.

How do I trigger a rule at a specific time or interval (cron equivalent)

TIA

Nick

Just add a Switch to the channel, it will flip on and off when the event starts

With the scheduler

Good news everyone!
I’ve published a small bugfix release:

0.14.1

  • Added Number:Dimensionless as a unit of measurement
  • made z-wave table more robust

Lately I had to create multiple proxy items for every thing which has an energy_meter channel.
This took quite some time and was very annoying.
So this release contains a very powerful plugin which can filter existing things and then for each thing

  • modify/check the thing configuration
  • create items
  • filter the channels of the thing and then for each channel create items and link them to the channel

It has a test mode and prints very nice overviews in the log files.
Additionally it creates an .items file with the created items.

Example for the configuration overview for my Philio PST02A sensors:

# Test mode: will not do anything but instead print out information
test: True

# Define filters which will reduce the number of things,
# all defined filters have to match for further processing
filter:
  thing_type: zwave:philio_pst02a_00_000

# Set this configuration for all things.
# Here it is the z-wave parameters which are responsible for the device behaviour
thing config:
  4: 99     # Light Threshold
  5: 8      # Operation Mode
  6: 4      # MultiSensor Function Switch
  7: 20     # Customer Function

# Create items for every matching thing
create items:
 - type: Number
   name: '{thing_label, :(.+)$}_MyNumber'          # Use the label from the thing as an input for the name,
   label: '{thing_label, :(.+)$} MyNumber [%d]'    # the regex will take everything from the ':' on until the end
   icon: battery

channels:
  # reduce the channels of the thing with these filters
  # and link items to it
  - filter:
      channel_type: zwave:alarm_motion
    link items:
      - type: Number
        name: '{thing_label, :(.+)$}_Movement'           # Use the label from the thing as an input for the name,
        label: '{thing_label, :(.+)$} Movement [%d %%]'  # the regex will take everything from the ':' on until the end
        icon: battery
        groups: ['group1', 'group2']
        tags: ['tag1']

  - filter:
      channel_type: zwave:sensor_temperature
    link items:
      - type: Number
        name: '{thing_label, :(.+)$}_Temperature'
        label: '{thing_label, :(.+)$} Temperature [%d %%]'
        icon: battery

The thing config, create items and the channels part is optional so you can combine them as you like.

Since this is quite a complex feature I’d gladly take some hints on how to improve the documentation. :slight_smile:


Release 0.15.0

  • removed the plugin for thing configuration (!! BREAKING CHANGE !!)
  • created a plugin which can automatically do thing configuration, create things and link them to channels
  • created pending future class and made the item_watch use it
  • better logging of the event bus for str values
  • added INFO to HABApp topics
  • fixed #159
  • added tests and docs
  • Automatic unloading for MultiMode which are added in rules

0.15.1

  • Parameters can be used in operations without having to access the value property
  • Log info gets printed properly when changing thing parameters
  • Changed example and readme (fixes #161)

0.15.2

This is mostly a bugfix release.

  • Both values for ValueChangeEvent are properly unpacked
  • Fixed a bug where the configuration for a link was not set properly
  • Bumped used library versions
  • The test client does log all rest communication in the testcase

Has anybody tried HABApp with openHAB 3?

I haven’t tried it (yet) but most if not all of it should work because there haven’t been fundamental changes to the rest api.

I am currently unsure when it’ll be a good time to shift development efforts to oh3.

I believe the REST API has expanded but I think things are still quite fluid. I am sure there will be some sort of release this year but I personally am not confident on its usability for many users.

My first try says it is currently not compatible with OH3.

HABApp tries to access http://localhost:8080/rest/uuid/ This is what is returned, by default.

{"error":{"message":"User is not authenticated","http-code":401}}

Some parts of the API seem to be protected by user/password.
In the openhab config there is a possibility to specify user and password.
Have you entered the correct “admin” credentials there?

Edit:
Where do you download oh3? I can’t seem to find a link so I can test myself.
