I have started several years ago using FHEM to automate some of my devices. Last year though, I discovered Home Assistant. It fits much better my technology stack as it's written in Python instead of Perl, so I started to migrate to it.
As always I'm running against some walls. It was impossible to get my IR-bridge (which switches on the amp) running in Home Assistant, so I needed a way to use the existing FHEM within Home Assistant.
First I opened a new FHEMWEB port (bind only on localhost) with csrfToken check switched off:
define WEBapi FHEMWEB 8086 global attr WEBapi csrfToken none attr WEBapi allowFrom 127.0.0.1
Now it's possible to add shell commands to Home Assistant, it could look like this:
shell_command: fhem_shutdown_all: /usr/bin/wget -q http://
127.0.0.1:8086/ fhem?cmd.Stop_mediacenter= set%20Stop_mediacenter%20on fhem_start_first: /usr/bin/wget -q http:// 127.0.0.1:8086/ fhem?cmd.wz_XBMC= set%20wz_XBMC%20on
As I use homeatic I need to wire everything together in scripts.yaml:
# Use scripts with homeatic keypress as there is no delay # https://
github.com/ danielperna84/ pyhomematic/ issues/ 106 turn_all_off: sequence: - service: light.turn_off entity_id: light.living_room - service: shell_command.fhem_shutdown_all
And here I bind the turn_all_off to my Homematic Switch:
- alias: "Alle Geraete Aus" trigger: platform: event event_type: homematic.keypress event_data: name: WohnzimmerSchalter channel: 1 param: PRESS_SHORT action: - service: script.turn_on entity_id: script.turn_all_off
This is my second post of my home automation series, I hope it helps someone :)
