Request for contribution - controller selection matrix


  • Hero Member

    Following up on a the need for guidance in several posts by @stefaanv , by @samppa we started a simple Controller selection matrix.
    The purpose of the matrix is to compare the different controllers on MySensors specific features (not on the generic ones) to get global idea on which controller to choose (or test) for your MySensors network.
    Contribution to this tool is very much appreciated, so if you know the peculiarities of one or more controllers please help us filling the matrix or make comments on this post.

    The sheet includes a small selection of popular controllers, let's make it complete!

    The (editable) Controller Selection Matrix

    The list of controllers bold is (partly) filled by a few volunteers, are you the next one?:

    Ago Control
    Calaos
    Domoticz
    DomotiGa
    FHEM
    Freedomotic
    Home Assistant
    Homeseer
    Homey
    HoMIDoM
    Indigo Domotics
    ioBroker
    Jeedom
    MajorDoMo
    MyController.org
    MyNodes.NET
    Node Red
    OpenHAB
    openLuup
    PiDome
    pimatic
    Vera


  • Admin

    Ok, filled in the Vera column.


  • Plugin Developer

    What do these row names signify?

    Backup
    Restore
    Sound


  • Hero Member

    @martinhjelmare The matrix contains a a few "free format" rows which are added by the forum members. The backup/ restore a probably meant to save/ restore the controller state/configuration. When the time is right I will purge superfluous information. The controller page will show only the most relevant and MySensor specific info.


  • Hero Member

    Just added a summary of the controller list to the controller section. Contribution is limited to 5 controllers... a few more to go 😉


  • Hardware Contributor

    @AWI - Great work!



  • Small adjustment, Domoticz has no support for these yet:
    V_HVAC_FLOW_STATE
    V_HVAC_SPEED
    V_HVAC_FLOW_MODE


  • Plugin Developer

    @AWI

    I've added Home Assistant in google drive sheet.


  • Hero Member

    @martinhjelmare Added on the controller page. It's getting crowded


  • Mod

    @AWI only 8 of 20+ controllers are represented so far. It will become much more crowded.



  • I see that Domiticz supports MYS MQTT can someone explain how, please ?
    Couldn't find anything on that on Wiki.I thought that Domoticz only supported its mqtt format !


  • Plugin Developer

    Kindly update MyController.org changes. Updated in this doc


  • Mod

    Update done. Thanks @jkandasa !



  • OpenHAB was a little outdated. Updated the column in the editable google sheet. Thanks


  • Mod

    Thanks @guillermo-schimmel. I have updated the controller table.



  • @mfalkvidd Hi there. It is still the same table on:

    https://www.mysensors.org/controller

    How can I help in order to update it?

    Thanks!


  • Mod

    @guillermo-schimmel The update is a 100% manual process. I looked in the changelog of the Google spreadsheet and updated everything I could find. If something wasn't updated, it's because I was unable to see that it needed to be updated.

    Maybe you could mark the cells that need updating with a different background color (in the Google spreadsheet), to make it easier to find them?

    Preferably, we could find a way to ditch the manual table update and embed the google spreadsheet directly.

    During the last year I've invested my spare time in re-designing and re-architecting my old Home Automation project called myHouse which was also acting as a MySensors controller (https://www.mysensors.org/controller/myhouse). Now, I've given the project a brand new name (eGeoffrey - https://www.egeoffrey.com) and despite the basic principles are the same (likewise MySensors support), now is supposed to be way simpler to configure, use, customize and extend. Before doing any change, @AWI is it the correct approach if I delete the existing myHouse entry from the controller section, add a new one for eGeoffrey (since it is replacing it) and do the same with the column of the matrix? (do I need any special permission for editing the spreadsheet?) Thanks!


  • Mod

    @user2684 Unfortunaltely @AWI hasn't been online recently. Maybe @hek can chip in?


  • Mod

    @user2684 no special permissions needed for the spreadsheet. Rename the column sounds like the easiest way.

    About https://www.mysensors.org/controller/myhouse, we can either delete it and add a new page, or just rename it.


  • Admin

    @mfalkvidd, I think he doesn't have permissions to update the mysensors.org page.
    UPDATE: Hmm, I now see it's owned by user2684... so I guess he CAN update it using the login on openhardware.io.

    @user2684, just PM or email me new screenshots and textual changes on hek@mysensors.org and I'll update the page.


  • Contest Winner

    Thanks all, yes I do have privileges to edit pages. Will work on it and when ready publish directly the changes. Should I face any issue in the process I'll get back here. Thanks again!


  • Contest Winner

    Done it! (https://www.mysensors.org/controller/egeoffrey). I've already removed the legacy myHouse project and updated the spreadsheet. If there is anything wrong in the changes, just let me know. Do I also need to create a subcategory under https://forum.mysensors.org/category/3/controllers? Thanks!


  • Admin

    Wow, you've got an market place for plugins already. Cool! And great looking website!


  • Contest Winner

    @hek thanks! It took us way more than expected to re-architect all the thing but now that is ready, happy with the result so your positive feedback is appreciated 🙂 Legacy myHouse issue was mainly around extensibility hence this distributed, plugin-based architecture allowing users to package functionalities and/or contents without me doing any change in the core code. And turning it in a cloud-based service (as an option) could be also really easy. But for now the hope is to build a little community around it so to make it evolve further. Just as a starting point 🙂
