pimatic-yamaha-avr

Npm Version Build Status Dependency Status

Pimatic plugin to monitor & control a Yamaha AV Receiver over a network connection.

Status of Implementation

The following features are provided:

  • support for power switching, volume mute, volume control, input selection, and status display (main zone, only)
  • auto-discovery of devices for pimatic 0.9
  • action to select input source, devices for power switching, volume mute, volume control are "switch" or "dimmer" devices types and support the respective action operations

Additional features can be added easily and I am happy to do this on demand.

Contributions

Contributions to the project are welcome. You can simply fork the project and create a pull request with your contribution to start with. If you like this plugin, please consider ★ starring the project on github.

Credits

Many thanks to @ccvh and @seelenbrokat for their support in testing stuff at the early stages of development!

Plugin Configuration

{
      "plugin": "yamaha-avr",
      "host": "avr.fritz.box",
}

The plugin has the following configuration properties:

Property Default Type Description
host - String Hostname or IP address of the AVR
port 80 Number AVR control port. Only required for testing purposes
debug false Boolean Debug mode. Writes debug messages to the pimatic log, if set to true

Device Configuration

The following devices can be used. As of pimatic 0.9 you can use the auto-discovery of the frontend to add devices easily.

For each device the time interval used to obtain status updates from the AVR can be specified. The default is 30 seconds, the minimum value accepted is 10 seconds. It should be noted that updates are acquired by an centralized update handler. Thus the device with the smallest values set defines the time interval for the update handler. If no devices exist, e.g. devices have been removed at runtime, the update handler is stopped.

YamahaAvrPresenceSensor

The Presence Sensor presents the power status of the receiver and provides information about the master volume and selected input source.

{
      "id": "avr-1",
      "name": "AVR Status",
      "class": "YamahaAvrPresenceSensor"
}

The device has the following configuration properties:

Property Default Type Description
interval 30 Number The time interval in seconds (minimum 10) at which the power state of the AVR will be read

The following predicates and actions are supported:

  • {device} is present|absent

YamahaAvrPowerSwitch

The Power Switch can be used to switch the AVR on or off (standby) mode. Depending on your AVR configuration you may not be able to switch it on. See the AVR manual for details.

{
      "id": "avr-2",
      "name": "AVR Power",
      "class": "YamahaAvrPowerSwitch"
}

The device has the following configuration properties:

Property Default Type Description
interval 30 Number The time interval in seconds (minimum 10) at which the power state of the AVR will be read

The following predicates and actions are supported:

  • {device} is turned on|off
  • switch {device} on|off
  • toggle {device}

YamahaAvrMuteSwitch

The Mute Switch can be used to mute or un-mute the master volume.

{
      "id": "avr-3",
      "name": "AVR Mute",
      "class": "YamahaAvrMuteSwitch"
}

The device has the following configuration properties:

Property Default Type Description
interval 30 Number The time interval in seconds (minimum 10) at which the power state of the AVR will be read

The following predicates and actions are supported:

  • {device} is turned on|off
  • switch {device} on|off
  • toggle {device}

YamahaAvrMasterVolume

The Master Volume can be used to change the absolute master volume. This device can only be used with AVRs which support absolute volume control on a scale from 0-98. As some AVRs already stop at a lower maximum volume the maxAbsoluteVolume property is provided (see properties table below).

{
      "id": "avr-4",
      "name": "AVR Master Volume",
      "class": "YamahaAvrMasterVolume"
}

The device has the following configuration properties:

Property Default Type Description
interval 30 Number The time interval in seconds (minimum 10) at which the power state of the AVR will be read
volumeDecibel 16.5 Number The maximum volume which can be set using the volume control
volumeDbMin -80.5 Number The minimal volume in dB of the receiver (check the AVR manual to get the right setting)
volumeDbMax 16.5 Number The maximum volume in dB of the receiver (check the AVR manual to get the right setting)

The following predicates and actions are supported:

  • dimlevel of {device} {Comparison Operator} {Value}, where {Value} is the percentage of volume 0-100
  • dim {device} to {Value}, where {Value} is the percentage of volume 0-100

YamahaAvrInputSelector

The YamahaAvrInputSelector can be used to select the input source. Allowed values for input selection depend on the AVR model.

{
      "id": "avr-5",
      "name": "AVR Input Selector",
      "class": "YamahaAvrInputSelector"
      "buttons": [
           {
             "id": "TUNER"
           }
           {
             "id": "AUDIO1"
           }
      ]
}

The device has the following configuration properties:

Property Default Type Description
interval 20 Number The time interval in seconds (minimum 10) at which the power state of the AVR will be read
buttons see example Array The buttons to display for selection. See device configuration schema for details

The following action is provided to switch the input source as part of rules

  • avr input <device> to "<id>", for example: avr input yamaha-avr to "tv"

YamahaAvrSceneSelector (Experimental)

Similar to the input selector, the YamahaAvrSceneSelector can be used switch the the input by selecting a scene if the AVR supports that feature. Allowed values for scene selection depend on the AVR model.

{
      "id": "avr-5",
      "name": "AVR Scene Selector",
      "class": "YamahaAvrSceneSelector"
      "buttons": [
           {
             "id": "TV"
           }
      ]
}

The device has the following configuration properties:

Property Default Type Description
interval 20 Number The time interval in seconds (minimum 10) at which the power state of the AVR will be read
buttons see example Array The buttons to display for selection. See device configuration schema for details
