Nymea 1.4 release notes

Hey ho! 1.4 is here!

The big news for this release is the addition of Z-Wave support. While people have been using Z-Wave with nymea already using zwave[js]2mqtt and the mqtt client plugin before, this release introduces native Z-Wave support. No need for 3rd party software any more. Just plug the Z-Wave stick and nymea will be able to handle it just like it does with ZigBee. Of course, device support is still young but it’s easy now to add support for all the devices out there as all the groundwork is in place. Let us know if you have any Z-Wave devices which aren’t working yet by posting the nymea log that’s printed when adding a device to the network.

While nymea:core did get a whole list of other changes, they’re mostly improving the developer APIs, fixing bugs and improving the performance. Make sure to not miss out on the detailed changelog if you’re a developer. For end users we’ll move on to the new stuff in the plugins:

We’ve added support for the Shelly TRV and Kostal Solar inverters along with a bunch of Z-Wave devices, like the Fibaro “eyeball” sensor, various roller shutters/blinds, smart plugs Deadbold smart locks. Besides new additions, a lot of fixes and new features were added to the existing plugins. An intersting one is the possibility to add custom data to the push notification plugin. This will allow adding commands to push notifications which are then executed by nymea:app upon activation of such a push notification.

The custom data for push notifications obviously also required support for this in nymea:app. For example it’s now possible to add the thing id to a push notifications data and when the user clicks on the notification, nymea:app will open and directly jump to that thing. It’s also possible to directly jup to particular views, say, the energy view, or even executing actions directly by tapping the push notification.

The format of such custom data is like “open=energy” to open the things view, or “open=<thingId>” to open a thing, or “execute=power&thingId=<thingId>&params={power=true}” to turn on a particular thing when tapping the notification.
