New Conversions added to Device Extensions

Screenshot & Details

Added several new conversions to the Device Extensions Conversions. Some of these are based on user feedback of things they wished they could do and others just my own needs in control pages and automation.

  • Calculate elapsed minutes from any given date to now + option to use a device's lastChanged property
  • Convert a boolean value into any string value (True = "ITS ON!", False = "IT'S OFF")
  • Create a device that always shows True or False as it's state (this is a strange on, read my examples on the main page for how I use this)
  • Convert a boolean type from any Indigo type (true/false, on/off, etc) to any other Indigo type and some new ones not in Indigo and opt to reverse the values if needed. This can also be accomplished using the Convert Boolean To String (also in this release) so this is kind of a shortcut for that

Full documentation, release notes and the download link can be found on the main Device Extensions topic
