Re: Setting up the plugin

The continuous ping seems to keep the MyLink "awake" most of the time. With it running, the shade almost always responds to the Indigo command. Occasionally it won't respond to the Indigo command, and when I check the terminal window I can see "FAIL" messages indicating that the MyLink is offline for some reason. It almost always comes back online by itself. Only once every couple of months do I find that I need to power cycle the MyLink.

Re: Setting up the plugin

Hi Mike.

I've just pushed https://github.com/howartp84/SomfyManag ... /tag/1.0.4

There's an optional Keep Alive in the plugin config, which pings every 0 seconds then silently (debug mode) suceeds or throws red Error in the log if it fails.

I can't test the actions of the MyLink or motors, so could you try it out with debug mode on, then paste the logs of what each function returns - once they "work" I want to represent the status etc in the indigo device states/properties but I can't read back what's happening without the unit to test.

Re: Setting up the plugin

So I'm really over my head with this one but i'm trying. Here's what I get when I try to run the close script:

Action Group Master Large Window Shade Close
Embedded script executor host1 started
Error because embedded scripts execute sequentially they must complete their execution within 10 seconds.
Error modify the script to exit quickly or convert it to an external file (not embedded).

Re: Setting up the plugin

Is that definitely the plugin?

I'm confused as it's referring to an embedded script but the plugin isn't running embedded scripts?

Re: Setting up the plugin

Apologies, I’m running a script from another post because I never really figured out how to use the plugin. Sorry for the confusion. Is there a step by step somewhere on how to set things up using the plugin?

Re: Setting up the plugin

Ah :)

Install the plugin, create a Somfy MyLink device with the IP of your MyLink, then a Somfy Motor device with the ID of your blind (something like AABBCCDD.1)

Then create an Action > Somfy MyLink > Open Blind and point it at the motor device.

Run the action.

Re: Setting up the plugin

So what exactly goes in the MyLink Password field? I remember before when I set this up it was the name of the MyLink setup as opposed to the password for the account. And where do I find the actual numbers for each device, I have four?

Here's what I get when I try to setup a Somfy MyLink device:

Re: Setting up the plugin

Hi

I've stolen this from the SmartThings integration of MyLink:
Somfy MyLink IP Address: The IP address of the MyLink hub (Can be found in the integration report in the Somfy App)
Somfy Mylink Port: Ensure this is set to 44100 if you are not sure
Somfy Mylink System ID: The System ID configured in the Somfy App (Can be found in the integration report in the Somfy App)
Device 1-5 Name: The human-readable name of the device you are adding
Device 1-5 ID: The Somfy targetID of the device you are adding (Can be found in the integration report in the Somfy App)

Does that help?

Peter

Re: Setting up the plugin

Definitely, but what goes into the "MyLink Password" field? Here's what I get now when I setup the Somfy MyLink device:

Somfy Manager Connecting to MyLink: 192.168.1.50
Somfy Manager Debug <telnetlib.Telnet instance at 0x109a55710>

Re: Setting up the plugin

MyLink password is the MyLink system ID referred to in the quoted Smartthings docs.

The API calls it a password but if users are more familiar with it being called the system ID then i'll change the wording (and the description now i've found those notes) in the plugin itself.

That telnetlib looks ok, it sounds like it's successfully made a connection to the MyLink, at a network level - once the password/system ID is correct, the MyLink should start accepting up/down commands.

Re: Setting up the plugin

That did it! Yes it's confusing when it calls for a "Password" when it really wants the ID. After that everything was really simple, just as you described.

Thanks!

Re: Setting up the plugin

Hooray!

Is the log reporting any feedback from the blind? Can you paste the debug log when it's running an action?

Re: Setting up the plugin

Here's what the log shows to place one blind in the "favorite" position:

Action Group Master Bath Shade Favorite
Somfy Manager Debug myLinkCmdSingle action called:
Somfy Manager Debug Target device: CC1049A9.4
Somfy Manager Sending payload: { "id":680, "method": "mylink.move.stop", "params": { "auth": "bayfront", "targetID" : "CC1049A9.4"} }
Somfy Manager Debug Reply from 680: {"jsonrpc":"2.0","result":true,"id":651}{"method":"mylink.status.keepalive"}{"method":"mylink.status.keepalive"}{"method":"mylink.status.keepalive"}{"method":"mylink.status.keepalive"}
