Beta feedback Ezlo Plus

The Ezlo PLus is broadcasting an SSID and an erratic signal:

Until I can turn Wi-Fi off, I won’t be testing the unit.

For now we’re supporting, as you know, mobile-only. I’m not sure when the web UI will come - definitely not on the short-term.

It will be available in the network settings - it’s being worked on as we speak. I’m expecting to get it out in Beta in the upcoming weeks.

Are you referring to the http feature from scenes?

You mean to receive an email/push notification when a new feature is added /fw update/ a new list of devices are supported by the controller?

Hi @loana

yes, is it possible to have a button in the settings please?

yes, or a message on a ribbon at the top, like on Vera when we do an include / exclude. That could also be activated / deactivated with a button.

I hope that the rest will be possible quickly because it is not easy with the Android app and there is a real lack of tools to better visualize what is happening

Thanks, I notice this issue with more devices both battery powered and non battery powered. Is there an overview of the issues to check before reporting an issue?

I thought device names had been increased to 30 characters?

Please fix ASAP

Thank you.

FEATURE REQUEST

We now can create virtual devices on the Ezlo Plus hub.

However outbound we cannot send out wget or curl commands on to the LAN to control other devices as we have no logic engine or mechanism behind say a virtual switch device to be able to send out these HTTP / HTTPS requests when the virtual switch is turned ON / OFF.

Inbound we can control these new virtual devices via the Ezlo HTTP Server API however.

(See items 2 & 3 on this post here).

Also what is the ETA on being able to add LUA code to Ezlo scenes? I know its on your roadmap but any idea when?

Thank you.

You can create a scene with desired device as trigger and in action you can send http requests. I agree it would be nice to send it within the device state change but for now it can be done with scenes as a workaround.

Can you? I haven’t seen that in a scene action.

I have either “Device Actions” or “House Mode Change”.

It might be an iOS app feature then. Both Vera and MiOS beta apps has this:

The Android app does not (yet) have the HTTP request option for scene action.

Not on Android not in the Vera mobile app that HTTP Request is not there !

I’ve just looked in the Mios app and its not in there either.

@Ezlo what is the ETA for adding HTTP requests to Scene actions on Android ?

Thanks

Hi
how to simply make a virtual device without going through code?

It’s easy ish but I am tiring now to type things haha.

You need to SSH in to your Ezlo Plus controller using Putty and run these two commands first:

The uername is: root and the password is on the sticker underneath the controller.

opkg update
opkg install firmware-plugins-test_plugin

Go to the online Api tool here connect to the serial number of your Ezlo Plus. Use the Not Listed from the API calls drop down box.

In the text box enter this code and hit the query button to create a motion sensor.

{
 "method": "extensions.plugin.run",
 "id": "12345",
 "params": {
 "script": "HUB:test_plugin/scripts/generate_devices",
 "scriptParams": {
 "device_type": "motion_sensor",
 "devices_count": 1
 }
 }
}

or this code to create a switch.

{
 "method": "extensions.plugin.run",
 "id": "12345",
 "params": {
 "script": "HUB:test_plugin/scripts/generate_devices",
 "scriptParams": {
 "device_type": "plug_interior",
 "devices_count": 1
 }
 }
}

These are the types of devices you can add:

plug_interior
temperature_sensor
thermostat
motion_sensor
combo_sensor
plug_dimmable
door_lock
bulb_rgb
garage_door

Also if you want to be able to control these devices inbound by sending a HTTP command to your Ezlo Plus controller see items 2 & 3 on this post here.

@ranneman

Just write all of them here and we will check it sap.

We have asked Ezlo for a proper bug tracking and feature request system, but alas we are just using the forums. So likely lots of our feedback is being missed in the mass or threads and posts.

Nothing missed.
We always checking all feedbacks and adding tickets to our Jira.

Maybe if you say so. :thinking:

The other problem is I might have reported a bug or asked for a feature rrwuest, which there have been many.

And then later I forget what I asked for LOL and probably won’t know where to even find it on the forum again.

A tracking system would of been better.

For the feature requests we have special place in our JIRa and all of them are there.

@Oleh

The problem is I can’t see your internal system.

So I cant track the progress of bugs I have reported, to see if they are fixed or not yet?

So I am just guessing and waiting, maybe having to test the same thing several times to see if it now works as expected or not?

As no one tells me they are fixed necessarily.

Kodi for example have a public bug tracking system you can report bugs and see there progress by the Devs.
