Vera Scene/Device Mode Manipulation

by on Feb.11, 2016, under Tech Stuff

Anyone who’s into home automation with Vera devices, this is for you. Just filing this one under ‘random things I don’t want to forget’.

Use this Luup code in a scene to modify your home mode on an action. For instance, you come inside or wake up in the morning and disarm your alarm but want the home mode to change from Night, Away, etc to Home.

luup.call_action(“urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:HomeAutomationGateway1″,”SetHouseMode”, {Mode = value}, 0)

Where Mode = value, value = 1 – Home, 2 – Away, 3 – Night, 4- Vacation

ex Scene Configuration:

Step 1 Trigger – ‘Vista Alarm is DISARMED’
Step 2 Device Actions – Leave Empty
Step 3 Finish the Scene – Use the provided code under the section ‘ Also, execute the following Luup code:’
luup.call_action(“urn:micasaverde-com:serviceId:HomeAutomationGateway1″,”SetHouseMode”, {Mode = 1}, 0)
