Z-Uno and Zipato

I downloaded the sketch from the example "OneWire temperature sensor DS18B20" ... e-sensors/
The controller Zipato shows the temperature from the sensors, but does not allow the use of the readings in the rules.
Writes - "no attributes".
Arduino IDE 1.6.5 Z-Uno v 2.1.0

I have noticed the same problem with the Hauppauge controller (which currently runs an old variant of the Zipato firmware).
That's with the very latest 1.85 IDE and 2.1.1 Z-Uno

Is your Zipato controller running the very latest firmware?

I have not tried Zipato with the latest version Z-Uno.

Latest 1.85 IDE and 2.1.1 Z-Uno.
The controller Zipato shows the temperature from the sensor, but does not allow the use of the readings in the rules.
Writes - "no attributes".
Why is this? Where can I go to support Zipato or blame Z-Uno ?
Maybe I'm doing something wrong ?

Code: Select all

 #include <ZUNO_DS18B20.h>
#define PIN_OW 9     //
OneWire ow(PIN_OW);  //
DS18B20Sensor sen18b20(&ow);//
#define ADDR_SIZE 8


byte  sensor_addresses[NUMBER_OF_SENSORS * ADDR_SIZE] =
  0x28, 0xEE, 0xC4, 0x3A, 0x2E, 0x16, 0x01, 0x32,


unsigned long previousMillis = 0;
const long interval = 60000;

void setup() {
void loop()
  unsigned long currentMillis = millis();
  if (currentMillis - previousMillis >= interval) { //
    previousMillis = currentMillis;
    byte address[ADDR_SIZE];
    // use byte instead of int to reduce code size
    for (byte i = 0; i < NUMBER_OF_SENSORS; i++)
      for (byte j = 0; j < ADDR_SIZE; j++)
        address[j] = sensor_addresses[i * ADDR_SIZE + j];
      temp[i] = sen18b20.getTempC100(address);
      delay (40);
      zunoSendReport(1 + i);

word getterTemp0()
  return temp[0];
 [/ code]

Can someone check this code on a controller other than zipato?
I can add it Z-Uno to the Zipabox without problems and also get values. It shows and updates just fine in the app.
However, I am unable to create any rules with the unit as it just says "no attributes" in the dropdown
The answer Zipato:
This device is not full supported by Zipato. When you add it you receive generic descriptor for it and you can use of its functionalities.
We don't have full support for this device.

we can chek it on Friday on RaZberry. But I would suggest Zipato to contact us. We tried to contact them directly, but as non-Zipato users we got a negative naswer on our support ticket.

Thank you!
I opened a ticket to Zipato and put in a copy a response from you (Serguei G. Poltorak
ps) about the readiness to actively cooperate. Zipato responded like this:
I apologize for late reply. Zipato doesn't have full support for Z-Uno device.
When you include Z-Uno device you will receive generic descriptor which will show just some of the basic device functionalities.
Unfortunately you device is not fully supported and that is the reason why you don't have attributes.

Best regards,

Sketch works correct in RaZberry. I can get temperature, sensor type and scale correct.

Thank you for checking!
This proves that Zipato is to blame, but they do not want to correct their mistakes :(

@sega66 - I wonder if the values can be read from the Zipato REST interface..if they can it may be possible to copy them into a virtual device that can then be used by the zipato rules as a temporary workaround..havent had a chance to test this yet myself
