Hubitat Bridge Version 0.5.4 Update

Post by autolog »

Version 0.5.4 of the plugin is now available in the Indigo Plugin Store.

Changes since release Version 0.5.0 include:

V 0.5.4 / 0.5.3: MQTT Connection improvements + Aqara
Make it more obvious that MQTT might not be running when the plugin attempts to connect to MQTT and fails

This release incorporates changes from pre-release version 0.5.3:
  • Handle Aqara Buttons which have a larger button count.
  • Bug fix.
V 0.5.1: Enhance Power Reporting + MQTT Update
Power reporting has been updated for the Hubitat Elevation Outlet device and added to the Tasmota Outlet device.

You can specify the Power Units, Power Decimal Places, Minimum reporting Level and Reporting Power Hysteresis. The Tasmota Outlet also supports accumulated totals and you can specify the Power Units and Decimal Places for this.

The Minimum Reporting Level is used to disable logging if the reported power level is below this value. The one exception is that if the previous value was above the minimum level, then it will be reported. The Hysteresis is used to prevent reporting if the updated power value doesn't exceed the hysteresis boundaries i.e. if the hysteresis is set to 6 and the previously reported power was 100 watts, then the new value will only get reported if the new value is <= 97 or >= 103. You can set optimum values to suppress excessive reporting from "chatty" devices.

Please note that the Indigo device is still updated even if the above logic doesn't report the update to the Indigo Event log.

The above is defined in the Indigo Device definition s for the associated devices.

The MQTT component has been updated to the latest release of Eclipse/Paho.

Minor code tidying and bug fixes.

This release (V 0.5.4) is a recommended update for all users. :)
