Hi all,

Today we are releasing Gladys Assistant v4.4, a brand new version that is finally making the map view useful in Gladys !

What's new in Gladys Assistant 4.4?#

Create zones in the map view#

On the map, you can now create zones:

  • For your home
  • Your work
  • The school
  • Literally anywhere on earth!

Create a zone

You should see your created zone on the map

You can of course edit those zones:

Edit a zone

Start a scene when a user enters/leaves a zone#

Now, using the zones you previously created, you can now create a zone that will be trigger when a user enters the zone:

User entered zone in scene

or when the user leaves the zone:

User left zone in scene

An example: set your user as "at home" or "left home"#

Imagine you want to set your user as "at home" when you enters a zone, and "left home" when you leaves a zone.

You can do that by creating two scenes, at home:

At home

And left home:

Left home

House empty/not empty condition in scene#

It was already possible to create a scene that triggers when a house is empty/not empty, but it was not possible to add a condition in a scene to continue only if the house is empty/not empty.

It's now possible!

House empty

House not empty

With this scene, you can add the presence card on the dashboard:

User presence dashboard

Bugfixes#

We fixed a few bugfixes in this release:

  • Calling a scene from a scene should duplicate the scope object to avoid context pollution #1205
  • Fix log in scene continue-only-if action #1201

How to upgrade?#

If you installed Gladys with the official Raspberry Pi OS image, your instance will update automatically in the coming hours. It can take up to 24 hours, don't panic.

If you installed Gladys with Docker, make sure you are using Watchtower. See the documentation.

With Watchtower, Gladys will update automatically.
