Telldus LUA-script for Fibaro smoke sensor tampering

Robert Andresen Internet of things 1 Comment

As I’m renting out part of my house, it’s important for me to know if anyone tries to tamper with the smoke-alarms. Fibaro smoke sensor has a tamper-switch, but it doesn’t look like Telldus Live supports an event for the tamper yet – or I don’t know how to.

So my goal was to try writing a LUA-script for the first time, and this is the result:


I don’t have any documentation for the data-parameters, so I’m not sure how stable this script is yet. Please see this forum thread for any updates: I’ll try to update this article also, if I change anything.

I’m not sure how to report which smoke sensor has been tampered with. The only way I see right now, is to create a dummy device for each smoke sensor, and an event for each dummy device. Maybe I’ll split up my home i zones or apartment to prevent having to many devices and events. It would be great if Telldus would allow triggering event or URL directly from the LUA-script.
