  • Is there a way to get status history for a device?

    Two or three values would be enough.
    The problem is that I'd like to detect user interruption of my ramp up script (increasing brightness of a dimmer by 1 % in 3 sec intervals). But the problem is that sometimes the user action gets queued between my check and the next CAPI call so I can't "see" it in my next check.

    I can see the historical values in HSBuddy. Is it a HSBuddy plugin thing, or system wide thing? If it is, can I get it from the plugin?

    Some of the gurus will chime in, but I did sort of a brute force approach using some scripts I wrote eons ago to log date, time, value, etc when a device value changes. Keeps track of water usage.

    Don't know if there's something in HS that will do this.

      To answer your question, it is an HSBuddy thing. It is a frequent request, but is not a system thing. You can use SKWare’s Device History plug-in or Jon00’s Database Charting script, but they are not as well-suited to the task as HSBuddy’s implementation. This would be a great idea for a plug-in

        Does any of the two mentioned plugins have an interface to use from scripting interface? Because I like graphs and logging, so I have a plan on getting/buying such functionality anyway.

        Another rather ugly idea - Can I access the log content from scripting interface?

          Jon00's is a script and has very thorough scripting functions. Device History also has scripting calls. I have attached the Device History user manual. You can download Jon00's from his website, his manual is in the download and too large to attach. Device history is in the updater.

          The HomeSeer log is an SQLite database. You can query it as such.

            I'm using https://forums.homeseer.com/forum/ul...y-shill?f=1274 - it's one of the best utility plugins in my view
