Neo CoolCam Door/Window Sensor

Forum rules

Questions about hardware that can be controlled by Indigo (but not through the interfaces and plugins listed). If Indigo doesn't support some bit of hardware you're interested in, and you don't find a 3rd Party Plugin for it, add it to this forum. Be sure to include links to as much information as you can find about it.

Note: adding it here does not mean we're going to add it - in fact it's possible one of our 3rd party developers may decide to write a plugin for it. We add hardware/features based on a lot of different factors beyond just having a request for it.

Neo CoolCam Door/Window Sensor

I got my hands on one of these:

http://www.szneo.com/en/products/show.php?id=176

I managed to add it to my Z-Wave Network but unfortunately the "open/close" function is not being recognised. The log clear shows something happening. This is what the log says when the device changes from an open to close to open situation.

Code: Select all
Z-Wave Debug                    RCVD requestAlarmSensorStatus: 01 0F 00 04 00 13 09 71 05 00 00 00 FF 06 17 00 74
   Z-Wave Debug                    . .  requestAlarmSensorStatus: node 019, endpoint None, cmdClass 71, type 0, value 0, classSubKey 710000
   Z-Wave Debug                    . .  requestAlarmSensorStatus: typeExt 6, valueExt 23, classSubKeyExt 7100000617

   Z-Wave Debug                    . .  requestBinarySensorStatus: node 019, endpoint None, type 10, value 255


How can I arrange to get this properly supported in Indigo?

Re: Neo CoolCam Door/Window Sensor

Now that I've submitted the data about the device, I am curious to know what are the chances of getting this supported and how long will it take to get support for this.

Re: Neo CoolCam Door/Window Sensor

We don't pre-announce release dates for specific devices/features/releases. At this point, it's fairly unlikely to make it into 7.1 (the next release) so it would most likely be the feature release after that (7.2) depending on the complexity.

In the meantime, you might be able to catch specific incoming messages from it using the Match Raw Packet message in the Incoming Command Received from Device Z-Wave trigger event.

Re: Neo CoolCam Door/Window Sensor

Just glancing at that log, you should be able to use my Zwave Lock Manager plugin to monitor that device.

71 05 alarm status commands are implemented so off top of my head it should work.

Re: Neo CoolCam Door/Window Sensor

Yup, 71 05 ... 06 16/17 commands for Door is Open/Closed are handled and logged in my plugin.

I've just noticed there's no trigger on them yet but I'll add that this afternoon.

Thanks. This would be great while waiting for the device to be officially supported.

How do I go about implementing this?

Create a dummy door lock device (everything in this plugin is currently called a Lock even if it isn't!) and point it at your door/window sensor.

Create a trigger for your dummy lock with trigger event of ZWave Lock Manager Plugin > Door Opened.

Re: Neo CoolCam Door/Window Sensor

The Trigger Event option "door opened" is not available in the drop down list. Am I missing something?

Re: Neo CoolCam Door/Window Sensor

Sorry, a superfluous speech mark made it's presence felt!

Try again .42

Re: Neo CoolCam Door/Window Sensor

We have a beta of Indigo's Z-Wave library that should support this module. You can download it here then double-click to install it (you might need to also double-click to uncompress it). After that, re-sync the device in Indigo and it should update its state correctly based on the sensor's messages. Let us know if it works for you.

Re: Neo CoolCam Door/Window Sensor

Just tested this out. Works great so far.

However the parameters can only be set from the z-wave menu as opposed to the sync window. I guess that will change later on.
