    OmniLinkBridge to integrate Home Assistant, SmartThings, Node-RED

    I believe that's because the omnilink is the "device", with lots of entities associated. I don't think that this can be changed with the current Home Assistant setup, maybe this could be done if omnilinkbridge starts to present them to mqtt as different devices.

    OmniLinkBridge to integrate Home Assistant, SmartThings, Node-RED

    Hi, I had some problem with my OPII console yesterday (stuck in some system reset loop - a RAM cleanup from the installer setup seems to have fixed it, reloaded all my config with PC ACCESS to be sure, so I'm pretty sure the names in the OPII console are still the same). Problem is that this...

    The MQTT server IP address is missing, so it doesn't know WHERE to send the data (you must enter the IP of the server running Mosquitto). I believe the values in square brackets [] are in your file but you have left them out for security reasons. If not, that's another problem.   I'd check that...

    Also, one of the big noews with the latest Mosquitto version is that it does not allow anonymous access to the MQTT server by default. This should not be a problem if you have a HASSIO install, but is a concern for whoever is using the so called "core" install (i.e. a plain Raspberry Pi with...

    I tried with HACS but didn't succeed. You can find my post explaining how I installed everything. I'm running your exact config: Raspbian 32 bit on a Raspberry 4B with 128 Gb SSD I had lying around.

    Maybe it's just my setup that it's different, but I see in the MQTT data the NAME=xxxx that is the name i gave in PC Access to that unit, and that is replicated in HA. That's what I see in HA: all the name are exactly untouched from OmniLinkBridge (I just changed some icons): https://ibb.co/2qqYWfb

    I do the same for Google assistant: everything is filtered except what I decide to expose. And I chose not to expose alarm or main door openings. It's already a security issue that the alarm is accessible via MQTT.

    Sorry, I don't know why but I can't post pics, but in MQTT explorer the "History" and the copy icon seems what it's needed. The downside is that MQTTexplorer must be running.

    I think MQTT explorer will do all you need. It also keeps track of the modification in JSON messages with colors. Edit: you could also just deactivate the duplicates in Home assistant, that's a new feature they introduced a couple of versions ago.

    Well, I'd just make a macro "button" WHEN Joe arms away THEN turn on Joe_flag for 10 seconds. This will be reported as a binary_sensor in HA. Rinse and repeat for every user code. But first I'd try to inspect with MQTT explorer what happens behind the scenes when the system is armed and see if...

    There's an old post of mine where I wrote the JSON part and how to setup an automation to catch it. EDIT: if it's not in the JSON then you must setup a "button" in OPII to indicate who activated the alarm.

    You can do everything directly in HA, but if you're familiar with Node red you can use it natively. It's your choice. If it didn't generate by itself you can do it manually with some tricks, but all in all it's not really needed, you can just create your cards. Be advised that the learning curve...
