Change function of camera when changing Hubitat location mode

Post by swolsen » Sat Jun 05, 2021 4:00 pm

Switched over to the Hubitat platform:
Not sure if anyone is interested in this but I wrote a PHP CLI script to update certain (inside) monitors to change from [Monitor] to [Modect] and back depending on Hubitat location mode changing between [Home] and [Away]. I run it under a cron job every 5 minutes.

Code: Select all

#!/usr/bin/php

<?php
/************************************************************************************************************************
	Uses curl to get Hubitats's location mode (away or home) and set specified zoneminder camera id's function
	(Monitor or Modect) based on the location mode. Requires access token from your Hubitat Maker API to access location
	modes

//exit;
$Monitors = array("1", "3", "4"); // Zoneminder monitor id's for monitor function to set
$ZM_Host = "https://your.zoneminder.ip"; // Zoneminder's host url
$ZM_Login = "user=username&pass=password"; // Zoneminder's login info


writelog("Initiating check for monitor id's : " . implode(", ", $Monitors));
$LocationMode = NULL;
$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, "http://hubitat_hub_ip/apps/api/32/modes?access_token=xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, false);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_VERBOSE, false);
$result = curl_exec($ch);
if($result != false) {
	$obj = json_decode($result); // need error checking here.
	//echo "\nbegin output\n$result\nend output\n";
	//displayObject($obj);
	foreach($obj as $mode)
		if($mode->active == true)	$LocationMode = $mode->name;
	writelog("Hubitat Location mode = $LocationMode");
}

Wrote one using groovy (no curl) as well but want to see about getting it running as a systemd service and eventually see if I can run it directly from the Hubitat hub directly when switching location modes.
