SolvisRemote plugin for Pimatic to get values from a SolvisMax solar heating system

The plugin is only tested with a SolvisMax 6 gas with solar panels. It should also work with a new SolvisMax 7.

Plugin Configuration

Edit your config.json and include the following lines in the plugins section.

{
  "plugin": "solvisremote"
}

It is possible to enable debugging

{
  "plugin": "solvisremote",
  "debug": true
}

Device Configuration

Devices must be added manually to the device section of your pimatic config.

Global device configuration

{
  "id": "SolvisRemote",
  "name": "SolvisRemote",
  "class": "SolvisRemotedevice",
  "ip": "192.168.178.61",
  "user": "solvis",
  "pass": "solvis",
  "interval": 10,
  "xLink": "http://192.168.178.61/schema.html",
  ...
}

Sensor/In/Out/State configuration

To get values with pimatic like temperature from "S1", add following lines after "xLink":

"s1": {
  "label": "Warmwasserpuffer"
},

To get the state of the solar pump add these lines:

"a1_state": {
  "label": "Solaranlage"
},

Only added values are displayed. So it is possible to build your own SolvisMax environment. All possible values are listet in device-config-schema.

The "label"-attribute makes your values more readable. Best way to collect the data for your environment is to open SolvisRemote in a browser and open the system scheme in the mobile view. Have a look at the sourcecode of the "schemam.html". Scroll down to the BODY-tag and you'll find the needed information.

Full example

Here is an full example of a SolvisMax 6 with gas and solarpanels

{
  "id": "SolvisRemote",
  "name": "SolvisRemote",
  "class": "SolvisRemotedevice",
  "ip": "192.168.178.61",
  "user": "solvis",
  "pass": "solvis",
  "interval": 10,
  "xLink": "http://192.168.178.61/schema.html",
  "s1": {
    "label": "Warmwasserpuffer"
  },
  "s2": {
    "label": "Warmwassertemperatur"
  },
  "s3": {
    "label": "Speicherreferenz"
  },
  "s4": {
    "label": "Heizungspuffer_oben"
  },
  "s5": {
    "label": "Solarvorlauftemperatur"
  },
  "s6": {
    "label": "Solarrücklauftemperatur"
  },
  "s8": {
    "label": "Kollektortemperatur"
  },
  "s9": {
    "label": "Heizungspuffer_unten"
  },
  "s10": {
    "label": "Außentemperatur"
  },
  "s11": {
    "label": "Zirkulationstemperatur"
  },
  "s12": {
    "label": "Vorlauftemperatur"
  },
  "s18": {
    "label": "Warmwasser-Durchfluss"
  },
  "a1_state": {
    "label": "Solaranlage"
  },
  "a2_state": {
    "label": "Warmwasserpumpe"
  },
  "a3_state": {
    "label": "Heizkreispumpe"
  },
  "a5_state": {
    "label": "Zirkulationspumpe"
  },
  "a12_state": {
    "label": "Nachheizung"
  }
}

Useful tips, I think ;-)

Rules

It's possible to write own alarm rules like sending a mail if solar buffer is full. It looks like:

{
  "id": "alarm_solarpuffer",
  "name": "Alarm_Solarpuffer",
  "rule": "when $SolvisRemote.s1 >= 90 and $SolvisRemote.s3 >= 80 then execute \"curl -s --digest http://solvis_user:solvis_pass@solvis_ip/display.bmp -o /tmp/display.bmp && echo '<img src=cid:display.bmp>' | mutt -s 'SolvisMax - Solarpuffer voll' -e 'set content_type=text/html' -a /tmp/display.bmp -- user@mail.com\"",
  "active": true,
  "logging": true
},

You just need the pimatic-shell-execute plugin, mutt as mailer and curl. The example greps the display.bmp with curl from SolvisMax and send it as attachment with mutt to the given mail address.

IFrame

Plugin pimatic-iframe makes it easy to get an overview of your heating system

"http://solvis_ip/schema.html" shows the environment and values from your SolvisMax. No refresh needed. Zoom to 0.6 works for me.

"http://solvis_ip/display.bmp" shows the current display view of your SolvisMax. Refresh to 10 seconds works for me.
