Simulation / Holiday mode

DomotiGa has a (hidden) holiday simulation mode, it will simulate people being home, here is the story.

A week or earlier before leaving look at the devices you want to switch/dim when you are away.
Create a globalvar called "Simulation" and enable 'Log changes to db' for those devices, also put them in a group called 'Simulation'.
When leaving set globalvar Simulation to 'On'.

DomotiGa will now switch and dim all devices in that group in the same pattern as a week earlier.

Translate program.

Home Screen

You can tweak your own layout via the setup menu 'home screen'.

Outside and Inside Sensors are selected by putting them in the groups (in device editor), Outside or Inside, and Temperature and Humidity groups.
Then they will show up as Outside and Inside sensors.

RRDtool graphing.

See RRDTool.

Groups

Groups are used to display devices and their graphs on the different menu pages.
If you have installed the demo database a few are already there.
If you have installed the empty one they are missing, you can create them via the Devices menu.
These are the ones used by the GUI pages:

Climate
Energy
Security
Doors
Windows
Motion
Virtual
Network
HVAC

Extended graphs (created via Edit->Graphs) use them too.
