Want to be sure everything is off when the last person leaves the house?
It is now possible to make a scene that will be triggered when the last one leaves the house.
In terms of presense detection, the feature is present from Gladys Assistant v4.1, and can work in different ways:
Via bluetooth: There are Bluetooth key fobs like the Nut which are very easily detectable by Gladys. The principle is simple: when you leave your home, Gladys will no longer "see" the bluetooth keychain and will mark you as absent, and when you come back, Gladys will detect the keychain and mark you as present.
In the scenes: it is possible to create a scene which is triggered after a change of state of a sensor for example, which will mark you as present/absent from the house. So you can do more or less what you want to mark yourself as present/absent at home.
Its opposite, "When the house is no longer empty"#
Rather, you want to do another scene that will turn on everything when someone comes home and the house was empty before them.
This is possible with the trigger "when the house is no longer empty":
Once again, thank you to everyone who contributed to this release: whether it's coding, suggesting new ideas on the forum, or testing new features, every help is invaluable and makes the product complete!
It's official, the Zigbee2mqtt integration is now integrated into Gladys 4 🚀
It is therefore now possible to control a wide range of Zigbee peripherals via a Zigbee USB key. Here is the list of supported devices.
This is the result of months of work on the part of many members of the community. Thanks to Reno for the first initial development, thanks to cicoub13 for resuming development, and thanks to lmilcent for testing!
For the moment, all the peripherals are not necessarily perfectly managed, which is normal as we do not have all the unimaginable peripherals on earth. There may be some adjustments to be made that we will discover over the course of the use of this integration.
We took the opportunity to make major updates to some of the dependencies we use:
From Node 12 -> to Node.js 14 LTS
From Sequelize 4 -> Sequelize 6
We switched to the latest version of node-nlp, the library we use for language recognition in Gladys. According to the tests we did, the language processing model recognizes requests much better! On top of that, new sentences have been added to the weather module for richer discussions with Gladys 😄
Everything was not necessarily easy to do, but we are happy to have done it!
I take this opportunity to announce that we have a new Raspberry Pi OS image, which we build automatically based on the same build process that the Raspberry Pi foundation uses!
This image has several advantages:
It is always up to date. When you install Gladys on a Raspberry Pi, this image will automatically search for the latest version of Gladys during installation. During the first start, you will see a waiting page during the automatic installation of Gladys 🙂
It is more easier for us, because now we can build a new image automatically as soon as the foundation releases a new Raspberry Pi model.
Many thanks to VonOx for the awesome work done. I could not have done better !!
Update: 21/07/2020: Ce tutoriel est destiné à Gladys v3, il ne fonctionne pas avec Gladys v4 !
Salut à tous!
Je le disais dans mon dernier article, mon focus sur l'année 2019 est sur le développement du Gladys Gateway et de Gladys 4.
Aujourd'hui, je suis heureux d'annoncer le lancement de l'Open API du Gladys Gateway, qui permet un ensemble de nouvelles possibilités, notamment la possibilité de contrôler votre instance Gladys via Siri de n'importe où dans le monde.
It’s a tradition: each year, I look back at the year and summarise all the major developments surrounding Gladys. I try to be as transparent as possible, and share all the numbers: download numbers, site visits, and even revenue.
If you missed last year’s summary, the article can be found here (Only in French, sorry!).
