Change dashboard on event?

I’m getting a bunch of these errors in the log, but can’t figure out how to address it? Any suggestions are appreciated

20-01-20 18:12:22 INFO (MainThread) [hassio.api.proxy] WebSocket access from a0d7b954_appdaemon

20-01-20 18:12:27 INFO (MainThread) [hassio.api.proxy] Home Assistant WebSocket API request initialize

seems that AD cant connect to HA.
which version from AD are you using?
and what is in the logs from AD when you restart AD?

I did just update HASSIO to the latest version so I am not currently seeing that WebSocket API error anymore, but I am getting this error pop up in the HA dashboard repeatedly when it is starting up - Login attempt or request with invalid authentication from 173.244.223.122 , I just can’t find that in the logs.

Here are the Logs from AD after restart:

do you have a dashboard with a camera?
then the problem is that you leave that on while restarting.

I do have a dashboard (several actually) using my camera stream from HA, so that error is about the connection to the camera? I assume it’s not big issue then if I am getting those login errors just at the start of reboot? Hmm, I was hoping that had something to do with my Navigate app still not working.

did you update the navigate app today?

No, I made no changes to the Navigate app, it just still does not work for me.

the app is updated for AD 4 (if we talk about the same app)

Sorry, but I don’t follow about the app update? I didn’t add the app until I had already updated from AD3 to AD4 as my script to do the navigation stopped working when I moved to AD4 so the app idea was mentioned above. Unfortunately, I can’t get the app working with AD4 either so I just done have my automatic navigation working on the dashboard.

ah, sorry. i mixed up 2 topics in my head and was thinking about another app :wink:

the navigate app you got is working correct. (according to the logs.)
to get it working you need to add an hadashboard event to HA.

Ah good to hear about the app, I had been trying to use my Navigate script in HA but is that not an HAdashboard event? Here is the script I am using again, I thought this was correct to trigger the app


frontdoor_hadashboard:
  alias: Navigate
  sequence:
  - event: hadashboard
    event_data:
      command: navigate
      timeout: 20
      target: Hello3Test

i am sorry, but i have never created events in HA, and have no clue about them.
but i can help to change the app so that you dont need the HA event.

but you need to show me the automation that triggers the script also.

Thanks for the help, here is the Automation that triggers the script:

- alias: Dashboard Front Cam
  initial_state: true
  hide_entity: true
  trigger:
    platform: state
    entity_id: binary_sensor.front_door_motion
  action:
    - service: script.turn_on
      entity_id: script.frontdoor_hadashboard 

and here is the script again:

frontdoor_hadashboard:
  alias: Navigate
  sequence:
  - event: hadashboard
    event_data:
      command: navigate
      timeout: 20
      target: Hello3Test

shouldnt you provide a state for the trigger?

an app that listens for a sensor state would be like this:

import appdaemon.plugins.hass.hassapi as hass

class Navigate(hass.Hass):
    def initialize(self):
      # Listen for the state change from the entity.
      self.listen_state(self.navigate,self.args["entity"], new=self.args["state"])

    def navigate(self, entity, attribute, old, new, kwargs):
        # Get the target from the args.
        target = self.args["target"]
        # Get the timeout from the args, if supplied.
        if 'timeout' in self.args:
            timeout = self.args['timeout']
            self.dash_navigate("/" + target, timeout=timeout)
        else: 
            self.dash_navigate("/" + target)

then in the apps.yaml you use it like:

front_door_motion: #the name from the app
  module: navigate
  class: Navigate
  entity: binary_sensor.front_door_motion # or any other entity
  state: "on" # the state to listen for
  target: Hello3Test # the dashboardname
  timeout: 20 # the amount of time the dashboard stays visible

you can create as many apps as you want, just by adding this YAML to the apps.yaml file again, with another appname.

Thanks again, the script had been working without that state trigger, but I see your point and it makes sense to have it in there as you do in your apps.yaml. I have updated my app with your code (and changed the app name to front_door_motion.py) and updated my apps.yaml with your code as well. Still not triggering on motion, but I see in the AD log that is says the app was ignored because it does not have a description, do I need to make an adjustment? Here is the AD log:

you didnt read my instructions right.
you shouldnt have renamed the py file.

the name from the app is set in the yaml, and you connect the apps yaml and the apps py file with

module: name_of_py_file

so you need to change the name from the py file back, or change the yaml.

Ah success! Thank you ReneTode for your help and patience with me, I wasn’t getting the naming at first. The dashboard is now correctly changing on the motion at the door.

Hello, everyone. Was hoping to get a little help with changing the Dashboard upon the doorbell motion (or ringing). So far, I think the issue may be with the event, “hadashboard”, in the script. I have:

Installed AppDaemon from the Home Assistant Community Add-ons repository.

Created a python script named navigatedoorbell.py in Notepad++ with the below contents:

navigatedoorbell.py

import appdaemon.plugins.hass.hassapi as hass

class NavigateDoorbell(hass.Hass):
    def initialize(self):
      self.listen_state(self.navigate,self.args["binary_sensor.doorbell_global_motion_sensor"], new=self.args["True"])

    def navigate(self, entity, attribute, old, new, kwargs):
        target = self.args["True"]   # What is this value? Do I set this to the same as the new=self.args state above?
        if 'timeout' in self.args:
            timeout = self.args['30']
            self.dash_navigate("/" + target, timeout=timeout)
        else: 
            self.dash_navigate("/" + target)

Next, I configured both apps.yaml and appdaemon.yaml:

apps.yaml

doorbell_navigate:   # Am I creating the app name here, or was it created somewhere else?
  module: navigatedoorbell
  class: NavigateDoorbell
  entity: binary_sensor.doorbell_global_motion_sensor
  state: "True" 
  target: Doorbell    # "Doorbell" is both the Dashboard name and the Dashboard Page name. The path is "doorbell". Do I use "doorbell" here instead?
  timeout: 30

appdaemon.yaml

---
secrets: /config/secrets.yaml    # Do I need to do anything in secrets.yaml?
appdaemon:
  latitude: 12.345678
  longitude: 12.345678
  elevation: 1
  time_zone: America/New_York
  plugins:
    HASS:
      type: hass
      ha_url: https://myhomeassistant.duckdns.org:8123
http:
  url: http://127.0.0.1:5050   #Do I need to do anything with this?
admin:
api:
hadashboard:

Then, finally the script and automation:

Script

doorbell_hadashboard:
  alias: Navigate Doorbell
  sequence:
  - event: hadashboard
    event_data:
      command: navigate
      timeout: 30
      target: Doorbell

Automation

- alias: Doorbell Motion Navigate
  initial_state: true
  hide_entity: true
  trigger:
  - platform: state
    entity_id: binary_sensor.doorbell_global_motion_sensor
    to: 'True'
  - platform: state   # Do I need to make a spearate app for this trigger?
    entity_id: binary_sensor.doorbell_ringing_sensor
    to: 'True'
  action:
    - service: script.turn_on
      entity_id: script.doorbell_hadashboard

Anyone see anything? Note that I did not set a Long-Lived Access Token. Also, I did not do anything with configuration.yaml. Did I need to add the below?

appdaemon: !include apps.yaml   # or appdaemon.yaml?

Any answers to the notes above would be greatly appreciated.

Just installed Fully Kiosk integration and Android App on my wall tablet. This was a million times easier using Fully Kiosk’s service calls. Installation and automation/script took less than an hour with little online help. Would have been nice to get the above python script working, considering I spent all day on it. If you’re attempting an automation like this, just do Fully Kiosk. There are a few Web Settings within Fully Kiosk app that looked important for this script, so I enabled them.
