pimatic-athome

This is a pimatic plugin which allows you to connect an Arduino compatible micro-controller over the serial port to the pimatic home automation framework.

In general you can use the plugin and micro-controller source code as a starting point for your specific needs. It shows you, how to setup the communication between PI/Pimatic and the controller board using a serial connection, a separate USB to serial converter or the build in serial port with boards like the Arduino nano.

The source code for the micro-controller is available here.

Installation

To enable the AtHome plugin add this section to your config.json file.

...
{
  "plugin": "athome",
  "serialDeviceName": "/dev/ttyUSB0",
  "demo": true,
}
...

You may need to change the name of the serial device. This depends on your configuration.
On the Raspberry Pi it looks like '/dev/ttyUSB0'.
On my MacBook it is something like '/dev/tty.usbserial-A401159R' for an FTDI based USB to serial converter.

Use

sudo ls /dev

to display the available devices.

This is an example for the devices section in the config.json file.
