Using Fing as a new way to detect smartphone presence

Hi,

As a happy owner of the new Airport Extreme, I discovered that SNMP is no more available in this device.

I would like to replace the SNMP log by use of Fing.

Are you considering that ?

BTW, I already have experience in using Fing and python dev.
Instead of rewriting all the things that smartphone radar is already doing perfectly, I am considered to add this as a new feed for smartphone radar by myself.

Regards,
Berbard

Re: Using Fing as a new way to detect smartphone presence

whats the difference to simply doing ping?

FING does some scanning and formatting, but besides that is there any additional info?

Re: Using Fing as a new way to detect smartphone presence

Fing runs discover rounds of network devices - whereas ping can only ping device you know -. It creates a log that contains this info :

=IP address
=Custom Name of the Node (assigned in a .properties file)
=The state (UP/DOWN)
=The timestamp of last state change
=The host name
=The MAC address
=The Hardware vendor

This log is updated on a regular basis (every minute or so).

Regards,

Re: Using Fing as a new way to detect smartphone presence

first try to use fing to look for MAC address on network

steps:

1. download fing from http://www.overlooksoft.com/download site and install (with option key pressed to enable install)

2. then copy the attached code into applescript and compile and export to … /indigo 6/scripts/attachments
--- it needs your admin password as fing requires to be run with sudo. replace XXXXXXX in
set yourPassward to "XXXXXX" with your password.
!!!PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THIS IN CLEAR TEXT!!!!
although it likely will not leave your computer.

3. create scheduled action: "check myiphone" with embedded applescript eg:
set found to readfing("00:1E:E5:FA:4E:E4") -- this is the MAC address the programm will be looking for -- you have to know this. use fing to find it once: just type "fing" in terminal
if found = true then
do what ever you need to do
else
do what ever you need to do
end

4. you can check the data in /Users/yourid/Documents/fingdata and finglog


-- first time this script gets executed it waits (delay 10) for 10 secs to make sure that fing is running.

happy using

Karl

Re: Using Fing as a new way to detect smartphone presence

Thanks for digging the subject, Karl.

The remaining question is for Travis : does he consider do had using fing as an alternative way for Smartphone Radar to follow devices ?

Bernard

Re: Using Fing as a new way to detect smartphone presence

Neat find Bernard. I just installed Fing on my Mac and iPhone. Both work very well.

And thanks for sharing the AppleScript Karl.

Re: Using Fing as a new way to detect smartphone presence

I'm too busy with work to get any time to play with this now. Feel free to add it try adding it to the plugin if you want to try it out. Though the fact that it needs to run as root may be a problem.

This is great Karl! Any chance that you could somehow have this get keychain access rather than storing your admin password in the clear like this?

Re: Using Fing as a new way to detect smartphone presence

will try... next piece to learn how to do...

goal is to have this thing running in the background and updating variables on state of connected devices.

QUESTIONS: I have ~ 24 IP devices on my network. In order for this thing to work well it would need to have a mapping form MAC-address to device name. One could do a scan and present a table to the user to add a device name. But sometimes not all IP devices are "alive" (eg wifi cameras, phones) and devices get replaced and added or removed. That would lead to a bit more complications. Would it be sufficient to just manage the key 1-3 devices (ie cell phones) to check if user is present? .. the real question is: what does the user want to do with the info:
1. security , which devices are on my network?
2. check if certain few devices are online?

AND as soon as the iphone goes dark it does shows up as "down" in fing .. with timestamp of last check. When it comes alive the fing "log-file" shows and entry within seconds, while the "table-file" output changes only after the next scheduled run of Fing (1/minute).


as for SUDO: I don't know "overlook" (the company that does fing). They are selling a smartphone app and an enterprise version. FING is free. I could not find any comments about trustworthiness of overlook.. any info?

Personally, how I would use this are for:
1. Know when residents of the house are home or away.
2. Know when guests are home or away (I've setup a lot of our guests with their mac addresses into SPR so that my housemode switches to company when they are there.)

Re: Using Fing as a new way to detect smartphone presence

FING script update:
this one does not need to have the password in the script. user will be asked to allow password access.
The getPW section gets the password. The password will still be visible in the applescript EVENTS window as clear text during execution.

Re: Using Fing as a new way to detect smartphone presence

this keychain access with ... security ... seems to pick the first username that it finds and returns that password. SO IF YOU HAVE THE SAME USERID ON DIFFERENT SYSTEMS IT WILL PICK ONE OF THOSE TO RETURN THE PASSWORD. if the password is the same you are ok , if not you might get the wrong password.

still thinking how to solve that.. the man page for "security" it pretty long..

Re: Using Fing as a new way to detect smartphone presence

This version runs continuously in back ground and updates variables, which can be used as trigger.
just start once.

more details in the code.

this is alpha, but seems to work

Karl

[edit]
V 8.1 fixed quotes in one statement
[/edit]


Code: Select all

-- fingscan.app
-- build list of network devices using FING
-- runs in background, iddles for 30 secs then checks if FING has found new configs
-- creates variables with ipdevice info
--
--
-- Karl Wachs
-- Sep 9 2013
-- V 0.81
-- 0.81 one code fix, if IP number change: wrong quotes for variable
--
--
--

-- how to install:
--  copy this script into applescript editor, save into .../indigo 6/scripts/attachments
-- export into …/indigo 6/scripts/attachments  as APP with "stay open after run handler.."
-- then start fingscan using finder (doubleclick on fingscan.app in indigo 6/scripts/attachments)
-- 
--  setup trigger "IPdevice22 down"
--      trigger if any change to ipDevice22
--      condition ipDevice22 must contain ";down"   down (without ; )probably also works, but your might have a device up or down or vendor may contain string up or down
--       action: whatever you like
--
-- what it does:
-- starts fing if not active
-- deletes data and log file before first start, creates file fingdata and finlog in ~/Documnets/
-- will ask for approval to use keychain for sudofing command
-- will run ever30 seconds and check fingdata for new info
-- will create/ update varibales ipDevicenn  nn = 01 .. 999
-- will update ipDeviceLastUpdate with last date/time of last run
-- will ask for each new MAC address to assign nickname
-- ipDevicenn will contain eg    powerONoff;00:04:A3:AD:A5:CB;192.168.1.81;Microchip Technology;up
-- withh poerONoff = nickname, then macaddress, ip, vendor, up/downinfo, date of last change if any
--
-- fing will stay active and will create log file and data file.  log file will continuously increase.  data file is analzed by this script
-- regular read seems to conflict with fing, use cat with pipe into applescript variable.
--
-- needs to be fixed:
-- does not allow non consequtive ipDevice03 ..05  04 missing
-- double check get password
-- requires display dialog to run if new device detected, might be a problem if lauched in background

Re: Using Fing as a new way to detect smartphone presence

FINGSCAN: new version -

fixed some minor problems,
added lots of comments
add checking of FINGlog file, if no change in size, nothing happened:
- no further analysis of data.
- Makes code much more efficient and reacts faster to changes:
---- Between device change and update of variable in indigo is max 65secs


Karl


Code: Select all
-- fingscan.app
-- build list of network devices using FING
-- runs in background, idles for 5 secs then checks if FING has found new configs (checking FING logfile)
-- creates variables for each network device "ipDevicenn"  with info on device and current status (nickname, MAC# IP#, Vendor, Up/Down, last change date)
--
--
-- Karl Wachs
-- Sep 10 2013
-- V 0.9
-- 0.81 one code fix, if IP number change: wrong quotes for variable
-- 0.82 added comments, clearer code,  and reset logfile once a day
-- 0.9  added check logfile for any change, if no change skip further checks, faster reaction, and less code excution,  most of the time nothing changes. this will only check size of  file "finglog"
--
--
--
--
-- how to install:
--  copy this script into applescript editor, save into .../indigo 6/scripts/attachments
-- export into …/indigo 6/scripts/attachments  as APP with "stay open after run handler.."
-- then start fingscan using finder (doubleclick on fingscan.app in indigo 6/scripts/attachments
--
--  use in indigo as trigger:
--  setup trigger "IPdevice22 down"
--      trigger if any change to ipDevice22
--      condition ipDevice22 must contain ";down"   down (without ; )probably also works, but you might have a device's name up or down or vendor's name may contain string up or down
--       action: whatever you like
--
-- what it does:
-- starts fing if not active
-- deletes data and log file before first start, creates file fingdata and finlog in ~/Documnets/
-- will ask for approval to use keychain for sudofing command
-- will run every 5 seconds and check finglog file size, if changed check fingdata file for new info
-- will create/ update varibales ipDevicenn  nn = 01 .. 99
-- will update ipDeviceLastUpdate with last date/time of last run
-- will ask for each new MAC address to assign nickname
-- ipDevicenn will contain eg    powerONoff;00:04:A3:AD:A5:CB;192.168.1.81;Microchip Technology;up
-- withh poerONoff = nickname, then macaddress, ip, vendor, up/downinfo, date of last change if any
--
-- fing will stay active and will create log file and data file.  log file will continuously increase.  finglog file is checked for changed file size, fingdata file is analzed by this script
-- regular read seems to conflict with fing, we use cat with pipe into applescript variable.
--
-- needs to be fixed / loocked at:
-- does not allow non consequtive ipDevice03 ..05  04 missing
-- double check get password
-- requires display dialog to work if new device detected, might be a problem if lauched in background
--
--
--  uses ~ 0.1-2% of one cpu  (mostly 0.1%)
