Tell us which integrations you want us to make for the EZLO PLATFORM please

Integration to the European smart power supplier Tibber.
(They call Integrations for Power Ups) Their API tool for creating this can be found here: http://developer.tibber.com

Since there is an integration for two of your biggest competitors in Europe (Smarthings and Homey) aswell as a swedish controller namned Telldus and Tibber is a popular power supplier amongst home automators in nothern Europe I think it would be tactical for Ezlo to have that possibiliity aswell…

I find most “basic” devices worked well with the Vera, so I hope they will work well with the new hardware and firmware. The devices I have personally had trouble with on the Vera are door locks which almost never finished configuring and the Kiddie (I think that was the brand) combination smoke and CO detectors. They just never finished configuring either and would eventually start sending smoke sensing even though the device itself was not going off. Still a bit of a jarring thing to receive via popup message on your phone when you’re not at home. Also, though this is not the place for it I think, a very well documented remote control protocol regardless of what it is is absolutely vital to the success of your new platform. The reason I have recommended the Vera to so many people and worked so hard to support it in our own HA software is because it had a documented protocol for polling and controlling. I don’t care what it is, web socket, html, REST mqtt whatever, thats all fine as long as it’s documented and works the way you documented it (which was rather a problem with the older Vera firmware)

Just thought of two more things:
Xiaomi Mi Flora
All PLEJD products (Swedish brand of smart bluetooth dimmers and switches). I know it will be difficult because the PLEJD system is a closed system but as someone has managed to create an unofficial way into the system for Homey and for Home Assistant I believe it should be possible…

Hello @melih what is the time line for MQTT, Virtual Devices and simple one line http get commands, because this things can help integrating third party devices and systems sooner than to wait ezlo to make integration of every system in this list. We can use third party software’s like Home Assistant to connect vera and ezlo via http or mqtt, but we need one of them and also ability to make virtual devices. At the moment my Ezlo is an island in my home and can’t do some serious testing without making my smart home in a dumb one :slight_smile: and use one app for heating one app for lights in one room another for another room and etc…

MQTT implementation with full access from LUA in our roadmap.
It is planned for the next sprints with delivery in second part of September.

Simple one line http commands - planned for next sprint. We will add possibility to enable/disable of authentification in our HTTP API. In this case it will be possible to disable auth and remove all security by your own choice and have the same simple one line commands how it works now on Vera hubs. If you need more security, it will be possible to enable it through api request.

:+1: :clap:

Personally, I prefer better security provided it isn’t inconvenient. Without a token, it would be wise for users to be able to restrict requests to certain local netmasks.

With security enabled, it would be useful to be able to set token expiration durations and to revoke an authentication token via the portal or API or better yet, both. In other words, provide more standard controls for the authentication tokens.

Fibaro RGBW controller 1 & 2 - FGRGBW-441 & FGRGBW-442 respectively.

I paired an FGRGBW-441 as a generic z-wave device on the latest ezlo RTOS firmware. The device is a 4-channel (MOSFET) device with power metering. There seems to be an extra(?) child device?

I have the zooz rgbw controller (which is manufactured by fibaro) on my homeseer and it has 5 devices too. I believe it is a master plus red, green, blue, white.

If master is off, the rest turn off. I believe is master is on, the others resume their prior state. I have had it installed for a whopping 28 hours so I am still experimenting.

Hi @ezlo @melih @MCakan
Try to integrate the devices that we ask of you on this forum, please raise them to the top of the stack of your integration list.

Fibaro smart implant and other fibaro, aeotec doorbell6 , qubino, etc…

Best regards

Hi @Pitt13, Yes we are still following this post and trying to prioritize items from all requests. As you know we are aiming to integrate everything with our platform :slight_smile:
Btw I can also say for now that 8 of top 15 devices to integrate are Fibaro ones.

I think Fibaro as a whole should be a top priority rather than particular individual devices of theirs.

Same for Aeotec, Everspring and Qubino those are the main four Z-Wave devices for the EU markets, along with these other manufacturers here.

Also Harmony hubs the 3rd party plugin needs to be ported over to Ezlo platform…

I’d also like to see support for Hikvision IP cameras integration into Ezlo hub for virtual motion sensors. There was an old Vera plugin that after some tweaks I was able to get working.

And when can we expect support for Philips Hue Bridge and Hue lights? In Vera we currently have the Philips Hue 2 plugin and the AltHue plugin.

AltHue is better and supports more Philips Hue and other Zigbee devices like the bulbs from IKEA.

I tried to add one Zigbee device so far directly to the Ezlo Plus a Xiaomi Aqara temp / humidity sensor but it did not work or detect the device.

I totally agree. However we are forced to look into this device per device because sometimes it is very fast to integrate a particular device and sometimes we find lots of issues we need to solve, report, etc particularly just for that device. That also effects the order/priority of that particular device.

I have tried Hubitat with new zwave700chip for a while. Fibaro has become a Hugh problem since they have changed som multicast bla bal ( dont exactly now what). so all fibaro drivers suck and dev team says they can’t do much its a silicon labs problem… So now I’m trying better luck with Shellys who are not in this world fast… Still have my VP for some old 433mhz and follow the dev of ezlo plus…/MAttias

zigbee:
visonic MCT-340e sensor (zigbee) (works with vera plus)
honywel smoke detektor (xiaomi/zigbee) (Works with vera plus)
Bosch motion sensor (zigbbe works with vera plus)

Please add support for sending sensor data from the Ezlo hub to a Time Series database such as InfluxDB.

There is a current 3rd party InfluxDB plugin for Vera you can see here.

I am using Grafana to visualise the data from Vera, here is what I have setup so far.

Or better yet add native support in Ezlo for time series logging and graphing.

HVAC

Door / Window Sensors

Battery Levels

Glances Hardware Monitoring

And embedded in to Imperihome app as Kiosk mode:

Home Assistant?

How does Home Assistant currently work with Vera?

Presumably your Z-Wave devices are paired with Vera and Home Assistant sends HTTP commands to Vera’s local API to then control those devices and also read back the devices current status for feedback / 2 way comms?

Or is it a deeper integration at the Z-Wave chip level?

If the HTTP API then unfortunately Home Assistant and every other 3rd party integration into the Vera system out there now, will be broken when using the new Ezlo platform as they have “shot themselves in the foot” and changed the entire structure of how the HTTP server API works.

So all 3rd party apps and platforms that can currently talk to Vera will break for the new Ezlo hubs.

It’s up to those 3rd parties to rewrite their integrations in to Ezlo hub using the new API.

FEATURE REQUEST

Decent Push Notifications and notifications management / search functions.

I’ve always used 3rd party notifications integrations for Vera as the native inbuilt notification system was always sub standard and needs improving.

I’m currently using Telegram messenger app and my Vera scenes and logic actions send out notification commands to Telegram.

As a feature request I’d like to see decent push notifications and a decent dedicated area on the Mios app to view and search for them via keyword and time and date etc.

When @melih took over the reigns we discussed metrics and data. No roadmap on that I have ever seen. The focus is on device integrations and the new firmware.
