Homey Harmony Hub (v2.0.2)

Is it also possible to sync the on/off state of devices besides the activity state? I want to use that to control for example the light scenes or sunscreens through Homey by using the Harmony remote. The idea I have is to create a virtual device which can be turned on and off to trigger a flow in Homey. Now only the on/off state-card in Homey changes by using the activities.

#164

@Fire69 No I dont think you did anything wrong and for some reason the activity device wasn’t responding, can you run the app in debug mode and see if you can find a clue on why this was happening?

@Hannes85, @Raymond Unfortunately the harmony hub only reports changes on activities and not on separate devices so there is no way for the app to pick up on those changes :frowning:

#165

Would it be possible to create a ‘dummy’ device in an activity, so it is available to control Homey?

But I think I have answered my own question: the hub only reports changes on activities…

Example: add a extra device in my activity ‘Watch TV’. When I launch this activity, the extra device is available in my Harmony remote. Let’s say that pressing the ‘Arrow Up’ button uses this spare device and sends a trigger to Homey to switch a light on…?

#166

I ran the app in CLI, when I say ‘zet tv uit’ to Homey (through chat, not voice) I see this:
ON/OFF triggered on Watch TV

I don’t have 8 devices active, so I don’t know why it shows PowerOff 8 times…
Homey replied again with 'OK. Eén apparaat reageerde niet.’

@Fire69 will investigate it this evening!

Working on finalizing my work on the upcoming version v1.5.x which will include:

  • New option to add activities as a device.
  • If an activity is recognized as a television activity it will use the Homey built-in TV class and e.g. let Homey respond to: Ok Homey, turn on tv
  • Capabilities for on/off, channel up/down, volume up/down/mute are now mapped on devices and activities that has support for them.
  • If your hub for some reason goes offline all attached devices and activities will be set to unavailable until it is back online.
  • When you add a device or activity on the Logitech harmony app those changes will get synced, so an app restart is no longer needed when changes occur on the hub.
  • Added allot of new icons to use on devices, almost every device type has its own icon now. If you already have a device paired and want to use the new icon you unfortunately have to delete and re-add it.
  • An app settings options that makes it possible to send me a diagnostic report if you are experiencing a hard to trace bug in this app (only use this when i ask for it :wink: )

Currently I am rewriting the user documentation when that is done I will submit this version to the beta channel (probably this weekend).

I just wanted to say AWESOMELY FANTASTIC!!!

I bought a Harmony Hub a few months before the 1.4.x updates and it didn’t do much in my flows. Didn’t have a lot of spare time to look into it but when the 1.4 updates started coming my TV turned on every time when I came home (I had that programmed in a homecoming flow). So thanks a million for making me love my Harmony Hub! :heart_eyes: and thanks another million for all your hard work :heart_eyes: :heart_eyes:

Documentation updated, decided to change the version number to v2.0.0. Submitted to the beta channel its now up to Athom for the review procedure. Next big feature I will be working on is retrieving the favorite channels from the Logitech Harmony Hub, which will make it possible to have a command like: switch channel to BBC 1.

Wow, awesome! :smiley:

#174

This is good stuff!

#175

Installed the v2.0 beta. All seems to work smoothly!

#176

I installed the V2.0 beta via CLI.
When i tap the config-icon in the upper right corner of a activity which is added as a device i get a white screen and the Homey app (not the Harmony app) crashes.

#177

I can reproduce this now, thanks @Tomm I will investigate this and hopefully provide a solution soon.

#178

I see what change caused it, switching the default device class from “other” to “remote” because that seemed a better fit for my app. Will contact Athom if this is a known issue with the remote class.

#179

For now I advice everyone to not install the beta branch with CLI because this will leave you with devices that can’t be removed, will commit a rollback to the other class soon and keep you updated!

#180

Commited a rollback and will use the “other” class instead of “remote” again. Those who performed a CLI install of the beta/alpha branch and want to get rid of the devices whose settings are not available unfortunately need to uninstall and reinstall the app, sorry for that. As this version wasn’t approved yet by athom I will publish v2.0.1 to the store.

How can I update to V2.0(.1)? I’m still at V1.4.3 Beta on Homey 2.0…

#182

@Joep_Vullings As soon as Athom approves that version you should be able to update. I advise you to wait for that. If you want to manually update to this version you can use the instructions that are mentioned here: [HOW TO] CLI install method
