List of device commands????

I've searched and simply can't find a list of commands for all device types here. Closest I get is
https://wiki.indigodomo.com/doku.php?id ... ce_class&s[]=timer&s[]=command

Is the idea that I should do that property dump on any device I want to know about? Looking at that example, I don't see the info I need.

I'm creating a shortcut that I want to start an Indigo Timer device. "indigo.device.timerOn" isn't it. But if there IS a list of commands on this site, where, please?

Re: List of device commands????

A right click on the device within the main Indigo window displays device details in the log for a specific device.

Indigo 2022.1.2, Big Sur v11.7.1, Dedicated late 2014 Mac Mini, PowerLinc 2413U.

Re: List of device commands????

You can see a list of commands for the indigo.device class on the documentation. This is the best place to get the most common commands.

You can also get the full list of commands for Indigo object classes (indigo.device, indigo.variable, ...) using Python. This is using the Indigo Scripting Shell:

Code: Select all
>>> print(dir(indigo.device))

['__class__', '__delattr__', '__dict__', '__dir__', '__doc__', '__eq__', '__format__', '__ge__', '__getattribute__', '__getstate__', '__gt__', '__hash__', '__init__', '__init_subclass__', '__le__', '__lt__', '__module__', '__ne__', '__new__', '__reduce__', '__reduce_ex__', '__repr__', '__setattr__', '__sizeof__', '__str__', '__subclasshook__', '__weakref__', 'allOff', 'beep', 'changeDeviceTypeId', 'close', 'create', 'delete', 'displayInRemoteUI', 'duplicate', 'enable', 'getDependencies', 'getGroupList', 'groupWithDevice', 'lock', 'moveToFolder', 'open', 'ping', 'removeDelayedActions', 'resetEnergyAccumTotal', 'statusRequest', 'supported_device_types', 'supports_device', 'toggle', 'turnOff', 'turnOn', 'ungroupDevice', 'unlock', 'x10ChangeModel', 'x10changeAddress']
Don't worry about the things that use double underscores (those are special) -- start with 'allOff'.

Re: List of device commands????

Dave's pointers (especially the device command documentation link) are great for the built-in device types (on/off, dimmer, thermostat, etc). However, plugins that provide custom devices (which don't fall into one of the built-in device types) won't (for obvious reasons) work with those commands. Developers who build plugins that have custom devices (and provide custom actions for their manipulation) are encouraged to publish the scripting details of their actions so scripters can also control them (like we did in the Timers & Pesters docs). The same principle will apply to the HTTP API in 2024.1 (coming soonish), which will allow you to execute actions provided by plugins (if you know what parameters to pass).

In the interim, you can create action groups to start/stop/whatever your timers, then execute those action groups from the shortcut.

Re: List of device commands????

Maybe I'm blind or dumb, but if there's a timer on/off command at https://wiki.indigodomo.com/doku.php?id ... digodevice I can't find it.

The indigo.device.timerOn command listed there is something else having to do with State Image Sel Enumeration, whatever that is.

Timers are a built in device class as far as I know, not part of any plugin.

I'm guessing the scripting shell python needs me to specify the device somewhere, but I don't know the syntax for doing so.

The Action Group idea will work for me though. Thanks!

Re: List of device commands????

Timers are implemented in the Timers and Pesters plugin.

Re: List of device commands????

Timers (and Pesters) are provided by a plugin (the name is Timers and Pesters and it is in the plugin menu and is installed as part of the standard Indigo install). That's why I went through the rather lengthy plugin discussion and linked to the docs for that plugin...

You can tell that a Timer device isn't on/off since there are no on/off buttons in the Mac client UI when you select one.

Re: List of device commands????

Sure, I get that they don’t turn on off. What about the commands to start stop?

Re: List of device commands????

I was going to recommend a Python script, but Jay reminded me that the Timers and Pesters plugin has a bunch of built-in Actions.

Create an Action Item to "Start My Timer" (or whatever) and then have the Shortcut fire the Action.
