    OmniLinkBridge to integrate Home Assistant, SmartThings, Node-RED

    Interesting history! Nice to see they're still going. Had a look at them online this morning - yup, ugly. Like you've done I may just hide them in a few closets as the reduction in signal will be minimal. The price though.......wow.

    OmniLinkBridge to integrate Home Assistant, SmartThings, Node-RED

    I’ll have to read about the waps. I’m in the market to replace my current setup (Ubiquiti) as it’s just not covering the house appropriately.

    OmniLinkBridge to integrate Home Assistant, SmartThings, Node-RED

    Appreciate the help Pete. Took this old brain of mine a while to plug back into the setup. I would like to understand the structure more, however. The plugin (OmniLink) talks to my MQTT server (broker). But an MQTT client is also needed to view the MQTT server (broker). So MQTT client provides...

    OmniLinkBridge to integrate Home Assistant, SmartThings, Node-RED

    I must be missing something. I did a fresh HASS install, installed OmniLink Bridge and didn't bother bringing over any of my backup files. Configured OmniLink Bridge and it connects to the MQTT server fine and logfiles show it's seeing everything. However no entities show up. confused! wish I...

    OmniLinkBridge to integrate Home Assistant, SmartThings, Node-RED

    So I went through that process this morning. I also uninstalled and reinstalled OmniLink Bridge and did it's configuration from scratch. Still no entities showing up. It's like it is not bringing them into the database. The hidden entities are just various iphone and Pi entities - no OmniLink...

    OmniLinkBridge to integrate Home Assistant, SmartThings, Node-RED

    Hey Pete. I still have all my cards from my snapshot from before but all Entities are listed as unavailable (see screencap). Further, none of the entities are showing up under Settings > Devices and Services > Entities. I'm not sure why they're not being brought into the database. I can see...

    OmniLinkBridge to integrate Home Assistant, SmartThings, Node-RED

    sigh, I have to get my head around this again. Unfortunately I had a a system crash and lost the ssd connected to my HASS install on a Pi4. I do have snapshots but they will not restore for some reason. I have done a clean install of the latest version of home assistant and managed to restore...

    Warning HAIKU Will Not open in IOS 14.5 Needs Apple to update Signing Certificate Like Space & SnapL

    FYI, after years of not having haiku and migrating everything over to a Home Assistant front end and running Omnibridge as the handler, I managed to get haiku installed and running under iOS 16.01 on my new iPhone. Nice to have it back.

    OmniLinkBridge to integrate Home Assistant, SmartThings, Node-RED

    With the recent loss of Haiku I'm leaning more on HA for my daily house control. I've noticed there is no control of Humidity under the thermostat card. I'm using Omnistat Rc2000s in the house, which previously under Haiku I could control the Humidity. I see the Entity is read through MQTT as I...

    Warning HAIKU Will Not open in IOS 14.5 Needs Apple to update Signing Certificate Like Space & SnapL

    Ive also emailed them for the same issue. Frustrating that we spent $50 on an app that just stops working. The myro subscription is too expensive.

    OmniLinkBridge to integrate Home Assistant, SmartThings, Node-RED

    got tired of waiting for devs to even acknowledge there is an issue so followed Pete's suggestion and moved MQTT off to it's own instance on a spare Pi3. Works like a charm now.

    Thanks grantlewis. That's probably the issue. Unfortunately this is a fresh install so no snapshot to revert to :(

    OmniLinkBridge to integrate Home Assistant, SmartThings, Node-RED

    Couldn't leave well enough alone! lol. I decided to try and get it up and running in a Pi4 4gb 64bit environment, which has proven to be a mess. Hassio installs fine, mqtt no problem, but OmniLinkBridge via add-ons hangs every time. After leaving it hanging for a bit I rebooted host and the...
