System Time - status.xml

Post by rstrouse » Fri Sep 01, 2017 6:37 pm

I am the developer of the Vera plugin and have some questions regarding the time returned in status.xml.

Whenever I call status.xml I always get a time that is not the time you are showing on the setup.htm screen (currently 20 min off). The time you show is consistent with the time that is currently set on the personality board. The time in the status.xml file is consistent with the current locale time. Is there any way to get the date/time as well as the DST and Accuracy settings from Intellitouch?

Thanks for your post. The time in status.xml is the time as kept by the autelis device and synchronized with the internet time server. The Pentair system time parameters are not currently available as XML fields.

Part of the issue is that Intellitouch doesn't have an option to sync time/date with the internet. Any power outages after initial setting cause the time to creep and not be correct. Having the ability to have the time/date sync directly using Autelis or indirectly using Vera would be a very nice feature.

Unfortunately, you can't much do anything with the Autelis time as it doesn't have any bearing on the current schedules in Intellitouch. Is there some other way to acquire the time settings from Intellitouch? Maybe I could get the html return from setup.htm and parse the result... hmmm. It would be fragile and inefficient but it might work.

We will try to add the system time to status.xml in the next update. Thanks.

Thanks it would be great if it also included the DST and accumulator settings. If you want to encode it like you do on the setup.htm page that would be fine.

Any idea if or when we may get another firmware update and whether it will include this? Either us be able to update it or if Autelis could go out and get its own internet time would be awesome.

Great! Any chance we can get a changelog post to show what's been done for this version?
