Hubitat Elevation


That’s good to know. Get ready for questions :slight_smile:


Realised I needed to surrender my Hubless Badge lol


Opps… not thinking when I wrote this simple piston… deadly loop!!

But jeeeeeeeez, webCoRE is fast on HE!!!


Do backups work, or green/red snapshots?


yep… bin codes work for backup and restore.


Just imported this bad boy… My Alarm Clock!!

Device handler works. Piston imported well (but didn’t offer the macro to choose devices, not a big deal)… hopefully I’ll get a nice gentle wake up in the morning!


It worked, I had a nice wake up lol… if Hubitat can handle that I’m fairly confident most things will work :smile:


Good for you! Now go be productive lol


Been there done that… just got home from work lol (17:45 here in gloomy U.K.) :uk:


I forget about the time diff… still working on my morning coffee.

Do you still have any devices on ST at your current home?


The house I live in (rented) is still a dumb house, bar a few smart devices I’m bench testing (in the bedroom lol).

My other house with tennants in is still on ST and will remain that way, I have no intention of breaking / reinventing the wheel on that setup.


And I’m still not 100% sold on HE, it is lacking a good UI / mobile app, which right now is a deal breaker for me!


My home setup is somewhat smart but not fully automated. ST going down is an inconvenience but not OHMYGOD what are going to do kind of situation. Local operation is cool but not enough for me to start unpairing my devices and then moving it over, BUT it would be a whole different story if my ST hub craps out lol. No choice there… version 1 kickstarter hub still going!


I’d save that one. There was someone on this or the ST board wanting to created a haunted house, lol.


I replied to him on ST… all he needs to do is send a toggle command to every light in the house every 3 seconds and his house will go crazy :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Mesh network popcorn effect will make sure everything is random haha


I’m thinking about buying one of these to play around. I just want to make sure I understand webcore with Hubitat. All pistons run locally? webcore interface to create the pistons is the only part that’s not local?


Correct, you still need the web UI to create and edit pistons, but instead of saving pistons into the ST cloud, they are saved directly onto the Hubitat hub and run 100% local.

They’ve said the mobile app wont have a tile interface i.e. no device control as we know it… so the app sounds like it will be fairly usless IMHO.

I’m running the old school SmartTiles as I was lucky enough to still have the source code, but anyone who doesn’t have the code can’t do that (licence prevents it being shared).

Maybe @CosmicPuppy would consider helping people privately under condition of not sharing publicly? I currently have 5.3.3 but would love to upgrade to 5.7 :frowning: (@CosmicPuppy I would pay for 5.7 if it works on Hubitat :wink: )

You need to respect the licence as Terry notes above… I don’t mind stealing software from greasy corporations but not small businesses.

I have 5.3.3 anyway… was hoping to upgrade.

That said, I’ve just discovered the Alexa smart home interface… looks quite nice.
