Re: Starling Bridge Plugin Beta

one question - how does motion work on the protects? What is the timeout value (controlled by Starling or Indigo) for when Motion is cleared? is it max 5 seconds delay (Starling polling interval default) for when motion is detected?

Looks fixed. Only observation, and probably not fixable the way it is designed, is what the GUI displays for a second or two after changing, before official state is pulled from the Starling -- if I set it from heat to cool in the gui, it will switch back to heat for just a moment until the Nest service recognizes and displays cool. Not a big issue at all.

I'll take a look at that to make sure there isn't something funny going on. But as a principle, the plugin only changes the Indigo states once they have been confirmed by the Starling Home hub.

Will play with it some more and let you know but great work on this and looks very solid.

Thanks. :)

The plugin just responds to the input it gets from the Starling Home Hub. So it is the Starling Home Hub that is turning the motion on and off.

I could look at setting a configurable timer in Indigo to turn it off, rarther than taking the off from the message received from the Starling Home Hub.

You could try reducing the polling time to 2 seconds and see what happens?

Another update available on Github: Further Update for Fan Running :)

This update reflects the fan running state in main thermostat device.

Note that the secondary fan device should be showing the correct on off state?

Re: Starling Bridge Plugin Beta

The secondary fan devices show current correct state. Will check my system throughout the day and see if they change correctly.
