Hue Binding - Dimmer Switch

Are there any news on integrating Hue Dimmer Switch?
I mean, Philips has opened it to HomeKit, so it seems the Hue bridge somehow allows capturing events from the dimmers.

I know that there is a solution by polling. But this seems not to be optimal.

These dimmers are quite cheap. And I believe have because of that a certain footprint in the market.
Would be very cool if they were supported by OpenHab.

Can the dimmer switch be used too trigger rules ect in openhab and not do anything to my lights ?

I already have a hue bridge and bulbs with motion sensors running and talking too OH
I’m hoping to use the Hue Dimmer switch to enable modes like in bed and turn on fans ect
i don’t need it too control my lights as they are already automated or motion activated

I did post about it but got no response so thought i would try here

(EDIT)
JUST FOUND THIS POST

FYI --> Hue Sensor and Hue Dimmer Switch are both now supported by Hue binding

Hi,
thanks for letting us know.
I already switched to the binding as far as i could, because there is still a lack of support for the “Hue Tap” .
So there is still use for the web api calls

Have not integrated my Tap yet, any links available on how to do that? Thx.

@apfelflo89 @sihui May I ask you to send me some data (logs, information from Hue API interface about that sensor, etc.) about your “Hue Tap”. This will help to include it into the binding as I am not having access to an own device. Thanks.

@sihui @cweitkamp
not sure about links, but it´s pretty easy, just like the Dimmer Switch. The Hue Tap just gives back different values from the Dimmer Switch

The json response from a Hue Tap within the api looks like that:
http://hue-bridge/api/api-token/sensors/10

state
buttonevent 17
lastupdated “2018-12-26T21:01:35”
swupdate
state “notupdatable”
lastinstall null
config
on true
name “Hue Tap Schlafzimmer”
type “ZGPSwitch”
modelid “ZGPSWITCH”
manufacturername “Philips”
productname “Hue tap switch”
uniqueid “00:00:00:00:XX:XX:XX:XX-XX”
capabilities
certified true

Then you have to convert the values from those Button press events with a .map like:
16=Button 2
17=Button 3
18=Button 4
34=Button 1

For now my Items look like that:

String HueTapSZButton "Hue Tap Schlafzimmer [MAP(hue.map):%s]" (HueSwitch) {http="<[huetap:1000:JSONPATH($.state.buttonevent)]"}
String HueTapSZUpdate "Hue Tap SZ Last Update [%s]" <clock> (HueSwitch) {http="<[huetap:30000:JSONPATH($.state.lastupdated)]"}

For sure. You may have to tell me how to get those data needed :grinning:

Thank you very much, sounds easy indeed, will try tomorrow to get it to work.

@apfelflo89 Thank you very much. Should be enough for a first glimpse. I will incorporate the Hue Tap into the binding.

I will return to you if I need anything else.

Uninstalled hue binding via PaperUI, dropped test jar into my addons folder, cleared tmp and cache, restarted openHAB (2.5 Snapshot #1467 manual install on Debian 9.5):

The remote went offline after a few seconds, will do more tests tomorrow. Thanks so far :+1:

Here are my findings:

The tap_switch_event channel reflects every button press on all of the four available buttons with the correct numbers.
The last_updated channel contains the correct DateTime events for the button presses.
The tap_switch channel does not get any state updates.
The battery_level and battery_low channels don’t get anything because the Tap Remote does not have a battery :grinning: It is powered by kinetic energy when pressing the buttons.

What I did notice though: after a while the Things goes offline, but still the channels get state updates when pressing the buttons. As the device does not have a power source to provide any updates to the openHAB system while not in use for a longer period of time I guess this is normal behaviour.
Summary: It is working and a great enhancement for openHAB as you can now use the Tap remote as a gerneral purpose remote. Thanks a lot for that :+1::+1:

Edit: hold on, made a small mistake using the wrong itemtype, update is in progress :sunglasses:
2nd Edit: after using the correct itemtype Number instead of Switch for the tap_switch channel my above statement is still valid: tap_switch channel does not get any state updates.

Thank you very much for testing. I will remove the battery channels and figure out why the event state was not updated.

If other users want to test, here is a simple rule to catch the events:

rule "Hue Tap Remote"
when
	Channel "hue:0830:yxyxyxyxyxyxyx:5:dimmer_switch_event" triggered
then
	logInfo("EXTRA", "HUE Tap Remote switch event {}", receivedEvent)
	switch(receivedEvent.getEvent()) {
		case "34.0": {
		logInfo("EXTRA","HUE: Button 1 triggered")
			//do other stuff
		}		
		case "16.0": {
		logInfo("EXTRA","HUE: Button 2 triggered")
			//do other stuff
		}
		case "17.0": {
		logInfo("EXTRA","HUE: Button 3 triggered")
			//do other stuff
		}	
		case "18.0": {
		logInfo("EXTRA","HUE: Button 4 triggered")
			//do other stuff
		}
	}
end

I tested the binding as well (still with the battery channels included). Discovery:

[el.core.internal.ModelRepositoryImpl] - Loading model 'hue.things'
[g.discovery.internal.PersistentInbox] - Added new thing 'hue:0830:xxxxxxxxxxxx:20' to inbox.
[g.discovery.internal.PersistentInbox] - Added new thing 'hue:0830:xxxxxxxxxxxx:32' to inbox.
[el.core.internal.ModelRepositoryImpl] - Refreshing model 'hue.things'

Pressing the buttons gives the following log entries (using the rules example from @sihui):

[eclipse.smarthome.model.script.EXTRA] - HUE Tap Remote switch event hue:0830:xxxxxxxxxxxx:tap_dining:dimmer_switch_event triggered 16.0

[eclipse.smarthome.model.script.EXTRA] - HUE: Button 4 triggered

As I am not using PaperUI, all configuration was done in .things and .items files.
An example hue.things file entry for on of my Tap’s look like:

Bridge hue:bridge:xxxxxxxxxxxx [ipAddress="192.168.1.98", userName="<secret>", sensorPollingInterval=200, pollingInterval=5 ]
{
    ...
    0830 tap_dining [sensorId="32"]
    ....
}

And my hue.items for this Tap:

// Tap Switch Dining
Switch   TS_DiningSwitch    "Tap Switch Dining room"                                        {channel="hue:0830:xxxxxxxxxxxx:tap_dining:tap_switch"}
DateTime TS_DiningLastUpd   "Detected [%1$tH:%1$tM:%1$tS]"                                  {channel="hue:0830:xxxxxxxxxxxx:tap_dining:last_updated"}

Looks promising. Great job @cweitkamp

I uploaded a new test version here.

One thing you have to change after installing the new test version is the trigger of the event: hue:0830:yxyxyxyxyxyxyx:5:tap_switch_event. It will be named tap_switch_event instead of dimmer_switch_event in the future.

I can confirm that it is working quite well (as far as I can tell from a few tests).
