Arrival Piston - who arrived

arrival
presence
variables

#1

Went through a lot of others arrival pistons and had issues with just about all of them. This is a basic version that only speaks the names. However this is scalable for the # of arrival sensors and handles multiple people arriving within 5 minutes of each other. The number of minutes is easily adjusted.


Arrival/departure if/then or case statement?
Welcome Home piston help

What music players are you using? Can we use Chromecast Audio or Google Home to broadcast?

I’m using Google Home’s…here is a good thread: Google home DTH

My piston looks like this. Very simple. ST is running on an android control tablet. That tablet is running Tasker with AutoNotification, which intercepts the below notifications and says “greetings __________” based on the name.

execute
if
Front Door Lock’s lock #X gets unlocked
then
Send PUSH notification “Frontdoorunlocked ____________” and store in Messages;
end if;
if
Front Door Lock’s lock #2 gets unlocked
then
Send PUSH etc

end execute;

Your piston is awesome! I set it up and configured it and it worked perfectly. I then (mistake time) tried to combine it with my main presence piston and I think I got trapped in that async/task cancellation thing because now it no longer works.

Can you tell where I went wrong?

I wil post a log when I capture a presence even and contact open event.

#7

Anyone have any idea?


#8

This is what I was looking for in another post. I just have the presence sensors but I couldn’t figure out how to incorporate multiple people arriving. Thanks!


#9

Hope you were able to get it working for your situation. I went through a LOT of multiple people arrival pistons and none really worked all the time. I ended up with this which isn’t perfect, but it is pretty simple. I’m sure someone could improve it.


#10

I took out the door sensor and adjusted for just 3 people and then put in a web request to have my sonos speak the Welcome Home. However, it didn’t speak. Any ideas why?


#11

You need something to trigger on. I use the door that we always enter through. I don’t think you can trigger on a variable change. Aka… Use whatever the house uses to know you are in the house. Usually people use an entry door closing.


#12

So I can’t use the presence sensors?


#13

What about setting up a virtual switch and using that? So when someone comes home the switch turns on.


#14

Using the presence sensors like the piston is fine to trigger on who has arrived. However to fire off an action, like speaking who is home. You really need a trigger that you have entered the house so the piston knows WHEN to speak who is home. You must have a man door or garage door?


#15

I have setup a virtual door sensor. I will test this out and see if it works.


#16

What other smartthing devices do you have? Lights? Motion? Etc?


#17

See this thread…https://community.webcore.co/t/arrival-of-people-including-multiple-people-at-once/3275/5


#18

Just looking at your piston again and I have a question…What is the 60000 in the dynamic variable stand for? Also, is the wait 5 minutes to wait to see who else arrives? Then it would say Welcome Home, right? If I wanted to adjust this time, would I need to adjust the dynamic variable equation also?


#19

See the other thread too. Yes 5 minutes. It considers anyone “home” that has arrived within 5 minutes previous to the door(or motion sensor) being triggered to be “new”. 60000 = 5 minutes

you could do this with any presence sensor detecting presence also but that might get a little tricky because both statements will fire at the same time and the anyonehome might not be set to true yet.


#20

Depart works, but arrival is not working for and not sure why.
