  • Probably not out of the box, but adding support for it would likely not be tóó hard. It all depends on how Tasmota would implement support for the device.
  • There's a Node module called `hap-client` that can be used to connect to and control HomeKit devices, which, at least in theory, would mean that it would be possible to write a Homey app that uses this module to control Velux Active.
  • @TomMeer most routers have an option to give a particular device the same IP-address every time, which is what I use for my Homey. So even though Homey uses DHCP, it will get the same IP-address from the router. I think that Homey also advertises i…
  • @kapusticka you will have to use the alternative Tasmota firmware if you want full support for your Sonoff devices. It's a rather technical setup procedure which will require some soldering and a USB-to-serial adapter. How do flash the firmware can…
  • @Bebopper the module type is set to "Sonoff Basic", which will prevent the app to properly detect it as a T1. You can change the module type in the Tasmota configuration, which is accessible through a web browser (browse to http://IP.OF.THE.DEVICE)…
  • The folder `/userdata/` is writable for your app (source). You can (probably) use a module like `nodemailer` to e-mail the photo somewhere. If you hook things up properly, you may not even need to store the file locally: `nodemailer` can use stream…
  • Lot's of exiting planned! From my car, from my house, from the shop, from the café

  • If anyone is interested in access to an early alpha version of the app (which implements a "generic Tasmota" device that supports a bunch of different sensors and modules), please PM me your e-mail address (the one you use for Homey). The reason I'…
  • I'm still on 1.5.9, no issues here.
  • @MarcelTimmermans you can resolve IP-addresses to MAC using `Homey.ManagerArp.getMac()`, which I guess you can run against the network subnet Homey is in.
  • @Aaron thanks for the offer! But I'm pretty well equiped already, not specifically with a NodeMCU but with a Wemos D1 and a bunch of shields (or standalone sensors that I can breadboard).
  • @Aaron I'd be happy to add more features to the "generic tasmota" device. I have a few Wemos D1 devices, and some sensors, so I'll have a look and see how Tasmota sends the data from those sensors to the MQTT broker. Ideally, when adding a generic …
  • @Aaron in theory, my app should work. However, I'm not sure which module type you would set in the settings so it provides optimal support for the NodeMCU, and I'm pretty sure that if such a module type exists it isn't yet supported by my app (which…
  • If you happen to be using `node-dahua-api`, I guess you could try and connect to an IP-address and see if it doesn't emit an `error` event. From what I can infer from the code (not at all tested, just to get you going): const ipcamera = require('n…
  • @Aaron that would mean that you're not in the same network as your Homey? You can probably find its IP-address in the system settings too, under "Stuff for geeks", "network". It will be one of the "address" fields, but not "127.0.0.1" and also not …
  • @Aaron if you go to `my.athom.com` in a browser, and log in there, you will be redirected to your Homey. You should be able to see its IP-address in the location bar of your browser.
  • @Aaron the MQTT broker is running on Homey, so its IP-address is the same as Homey's. You have to change the MQTT setting for Tasmota so it points to the MQTT broker on Homey.
  • @alle can you check which data is sent to the broker? Specifically the "INFO1" message (which the device will send to the broker when it has powered on). By the way, feel free to create an issue about this on Github: https://github.com/robertklep/n…
  • @RemcoHannink I don't have an RF device myself, so the driver for the RF is almost entirely the same as for the Basic (apart from which module name it checks to identify the device). So not sure why it's not working. It could be that the RF device …
  • You mean `Homey.confirm()`, as documented in https://developer.athom.com/docs/apps/tutorial-App Settings.html ?
  • I have no experience with it, but it looks like ESP Easy has a built-in "rules engine" that might be able to provide the functionality you're looking for: https://rutg3r.com/sonoff-firmware-tutorial-to-esp-easy/ The Tasmota firmware doesn't have an…
  • @woei you should be able to install the beta from the Athom app store (go to https://apps.athom.com/app/name.klep.sonoff and click the link in "A beta version of this app is available. Click here to switch to this version"). The current (beta) vers…
  • @woei sorry, I missed this part:  I go to add device, select Sonoff and then I only get the options "Original" and "Tasmota". You need to install the beta version of the app for proper T1 support, the stable version doesn't support it.
  • @woei yeah, the "Module type" is correct. Not sure why it's not picking up the device. Which MQTT broker are you using?
  • @woei * make sure you selected the "T1 2CH (Tasmota)" device in Homey when you started pairing * during the "Add Devices" screen, restart the Sonoff device (either by taking off the power or through its configuration screen)
  • @RemcoHannink I just submitted v4.0.7 for approval, which should be able to detect the POW R2 (using Tasmota).
  • @RemcoHannink they aren't explicitly supported, but as long as they are running the Tasmota firmware I think you can get them working without much problems. Tasmota doesn't seem to explicitly support the S26 either, but I guess that if you configur…
  • @woei sorry I forgot to mention that, but because of problems with the original firmware, most features (including support for multiple buttons for a device) are only implemented for devices that run the alternative Tasmota firmware.
  • @woei I don't have any T1 devices (I assume you're looking at one of those?), but in theory, it should work exactly as you describe. The Sonoff devices I've tested don't rely on anything being wired to the outputs in order for it to report the "swit…
