Hello!
22:12
TofuLynx
So the chat was silent today...
22:12
TofuLynx
How are you guys?
22:20
Bertl_oO
fine, tx, and you?
22:28
TofuLynx
I'm fine too!
22:28
BAndiT1983
hey TofuLynx
22:29
TofuLynx
Hey andrej :)
22:30
TofuLynx
Thanks for reviewing my proposal btw :P
22:31
BAndiT1983
no problem, is my job more or less
22:31
TofuLynx
:)
22:31
TofuLynx
How are you?
22:32
TofuLynx
Still moving?
22:34
BAndiT1983
just last stuff, afterwards a bit of filling up holes from different stuff and putting some paint onto the walls to freshen them up in the old apartment
22:38
BAndiT1983
TofuLynx, what's the last state of your prototype? or were you busy with exams?
22:42
niemand
left the channel
22:42
TofuLynx
It's in the same state, with a single row and a single column with errors
22:42
TofuLynx
Hope the new house is going up to your expectations!
22:43
BAndiT1983
left a house, moved to flat ;) it's rather nice, but i have to get used to big city
22:43
TofuLynx
I'm on easter holidays right now, so I will try to at least fix that bug in the following days, although I have to do some work related to university
22:44
TofuLynx
I should talk with supragya though
22:44
BAndiT1983
will go to hamburg on saturday, then i will surely look into it, while on train
22:44
TofuLynx
if he is less occupied in the following month than me, I think he could assume the downscaler
22:45
BAndiT1983
but i'm excited, that my raspi now switches remote controlled outlets via web ui
22:45
BAndiT1983
you just have to inspect single channels, to find what writes additional stuff
22:46
BAndiT1983
maybe green channel first, as green dot appears as last pixel
22:46
MK

22:46
TofuLynx
wow, remote controlled outlets xD
22:47
TofuLynx
I would like to "smartify" my house too, especially with a xiaomi ecossystem
22:49
BAndiT1983
i have very old ones and tried to control them before, but now i've dived a bit more and could read out the code from the remote control, which usually needs a special battery
22:49
TofuLynx
wouldnt it be easier, nicer and probably safer to replace them?
22:49
BAndiT1983
?
22:49
TofuLynx
or is it too expensive?
22:50
BAndiT1983
they are not broken and totally safe
22:50
BAndiT1983
you can get such one for 10-15⬠per 3-5pack
22:50
BAndiT1983
*ones
22:50
TofuLynx
I see
22:50
TofuLynx
and how do you control the rasp?
22:50
BAndiT1983
still can't read out another set from my girlfriend, she has ones which are learning the code themselves
22:51
BAndiT1983
pilight for now, to get the right codes and to test quickly, afterwards it will be openhab
22:51
TofuLynx
what do you mean by learning the code themselves?
22:51
TofuLynx
didnt know that system
22:51
BAndiT1983
you plug one in adn it blinks, then you press one of the four ON keys on the remote, outlet remembers it and reacts to it afterwards
22:52
BAndiT1983
you can also add other channels as well, if you want
22:52
BAndiT1983
if you remove it from the wall outlet, then it forgets things again
22:53
BAndiT1983
but this ones require that i use pilight-raw, as pilight-receive does not seem to recognize the protocol
22:53
TofuLynx
so it has some kind of volatile memory?
22:53
BAndiT1983
yep
22:53
TofuLynx
thats interesting!
22:54
TofuLynx
you usually turn off what kind of outlets?
22:54
BAndiT1983
?
22:54
TofuLynx
I mean, which devices or machines are connected to them?
22:54
BAndiT1983
at the moment mostly lights, as we haven't installed ones at the ceilings yet
22:54
TofuLynx
yeah makes sense
22:55
TofuLynx
I bought in the last november iirc a smart lamp
22:55
TofuLynx
Yeelight rgb color bulb
22:55
BAndiT1983
bluetooth?
22:55
TofuLynx
and I turned a big fan of smart bulbs, they are so great and so good for the eyes!
22:55
TofuLynx
nope, wi-fi
22:55
TofuLynx
they are constantly connected to xiaomi servers
22:55
TofuLynx
and I have them connected to my Google Assistant
22:56
BAndiT1983
that's what i try to avoid
22:56
BAndiT1983
everything should be controlled through my local setup, no cloud and other junk
22:56
TofuLynx
Yeah I understand that
22:56
TofuLynx
it's safer
22:56
BAndiT1983
also no other gateways, if possible
22:57
BAndiT1983
as every manufacturer has it's own: philips, ikea etc.
22:57
TofuLynx
but overall, I think this adds a lot to an connected ecossystem
22:57
TofuLynx
And I have been loving it
22:57
BAndiT1983
was talking to some guy from philips at the light+building fair, wanted to know if i can use their server in my local setup
22:58
BAndiT1983
there were already cases when robbers hacked into such systems and knew when no one was at home
22:58
TofuLynx
Yeah
22:58
TofuLynx
it's dangerous and we should take care of these ways of attacking
22:59
TofuLynx
but, in my mind, i try to be optimistic in relation to such servers
22:59
TofuLynx
I mean, I enter into cars, despite the probability of having an accident
22:59
TofuLynx
it's sorta of the same thing with always connected to the cloud thingys
23:00
TofuLynx
plus I live in portugal, which is very peaceful
23:00
TofuLynx
i could say, I would only avoid such systems after I get screwed once
23:00
TofuLynx
instead of always "preventing" it as it is some thing with 100% of certainty to happen
23:01
BAndiT1983
just read up on latest computer news, will avoid clouds like fire also in the future
23:01
TofuLynx
fire?
23:02
BAndiT1983
you can get burn by both ;)
23:02
TofuLynx
ah xD
23:03
TofuLynx
In the future
23:03
TofuLynx
I would like to have a self made smart system
23:03
TofuLynx
with a local server
23:04
BAndiT1983
it's not complicated
23:04
TofuLynx
Yeah, it's just a question of money xD
23:04
TofuLynx
which I dont have
23:04
BAndiT1983
my raspi is very old, it's raspi 1 b+ and even that works
23:04
TofuLynx
and I would have a house first xD
23:04
TofuLynx
to make a smart house, you need an house at least xD
23:05
BAndiT1983
don't think so, my flat will be half-smart ;) don't want it to get smarter than me and lock me out
23:05
TofuLynx
ahahahaha
23:05
TofuLynx
it would be awkward
23:08
TofuLynx
Well, it's late
23:08
BAndiT1983
here too
23:08
TofuLynx
I will leave now! :)
23:08
TofuLynx
Good night Andrej!
23:08
BAndiT1983

23:08
BAndiT1983
