Peanut plug / Re: Need help with Peanut Plug not connecting
« Last post by fillibar on March 09, 2019, 01:47:03 pm »
I would contact support, maybe you got a bad one. Can happen for any product.

As for resetting... I just did it on a bunch of mine as I was reworking things earlier today. All I can say is that I pressed the pair button for ~10 seconds and released it. It would blink red a few times (whether or not the green light indicating it is On or not is on). Then I would press the pair to pair it to controller. Worked on all 8 I redid. So the process works, but maybe you got a "dud".

I am livid with disgust about how difficult it now is to re-pair Peanut Plugs to an Almond.  Just doesn't pair any more.  Has been paired before.  Now Peanut Plug light just blinky-blinks away, but WON'T PAIR!!!  Why now so difficult???  Tried the so-called reset, all kinds of button pushes... NADA!  I am livid with Securifi about all the time being spent on this problem!!

Peanut plug / Re: Peanut pairing issues

Why is it so difficult to pair Peanut Plugs??? Disgusted about this.  Have tried all kinds of button configurations.  LED blinks red if the load lamp is not on or red/green if the load lamp is turned on.  The Peanut Plug has previously been paired... (why it must be done again is another disgusting story about loosing all settings in an Almond used as Range Extender... probably also lost all of my Rules too!)

Almond+ / [POLL] What is your Almond+ uptime
« Last post by lucasrangit on March 07, 2019, 07:37:37 am »
My Amond+ running AP2-R093 has been up for 358 days (as of March 2019)! I'm very happy with this stability but in the back of my mind I'm worried about it. Is it better to reboot regularly or leave it running as long as possible (e.g. until the next firmware update if any)? Curious what uptime other users are seeing.

Almond+ / Re: Moving on - Don't know why I waited so long

I agree. I bought into the idea of having a single consolidated device but in the end, you end up compromising features of the smart hub (cannot add custom drivers like SmartThings, or upgrade radios like Z-Wave Plus) and router (slow/no response to critical vulnerabilities, strange duplicate devices keep showing up randomly).

I think it's because the market didn't catch on. I remember hearing during an interview (https://iotpodcast.com/2016/11/episode-84-google-home-is-in-the-house/ @ ~35 minutes) that only 20% of the customers use both the smart hub and router functionality at the same time.

I should add that my device has been set up with 14 IoT devices (3 Almond Clicks) and multiple network devices and a few scenes. It is running AP2-R093 firmware and has an uptime of 358 days. I'm very happy with the stability I have achieved.

Almond+ / Re: How to add SMS notifying capabilities?
« Last post by lucasrangit on March 07, 2019, 07:09:09 am »
Have you tried to make something using IFTTT? I've used it to add Android button widgets to control devices without the app because the official app doesn't have widget support.

See https://ifttt.com/almond and https://ifttt.com/sms .

Almond+ / Re: Strong burning smell

Does the Almond+ have a built-in temperature sensor (in the SoC or off an I2C bus or even one of the transceivers)? Would be nice to monitor this (even via SSH) to see what the normal operating temperature is and to compare that with what you are seeing.

To be safe and to avoid lockups I've seen with passively cooled routers, I put a low RPM USB fan to actively circulate air across the device.

Almond+ / Re: Alexa / Echo does not detect OSRAM Lightify bulb through Almond+
« Last post by lucasrangit on March 07, 2019, 06:58:17 am »
I've seen scenes not get recognized by the Alexa skill because of how their name. Perhaps that's the issue you see with your device. Just guessing.

The web interface to the Almond shows an Alexa icon when a scene name is supported. As reported here https://forum.securifi.com/index.php/topic,4865.msg24260.html#msg24260 .

General Discussion / Re: Rv WiFi
« Last post by fillibar on March 04, 2019, 09:03:19 am »
Without modification the Almond+ does not have an antenna connection that you can use. I DID use my Almond+ (and an Almond 3) with our camper in the past. I switched the mode so that it connected to the campground wifi and then provided my "home" wifi for my devices. This was more to try out some home automation in the camper than the wifi though. In the end, I just had our wifi devices connect directly to the campground wifi (the few times we absolutely had to) and used whichever Almond for the HA.

General Discussion / Rv WiFi
« Last post by Skidlm on March 03, 2019, 04:21:57 pm »
Hello can someone tell me how to hook up my almond
plus to a Yagi antenna to get campground WiFi? What connector do I need.?  Do I need other hardware to share WiFi internally in my RV? I donít want to be constantly plugged into a laptop.  Thanks
