MagicMirror² v2.13.0 is available! For more information about this release, check out this topic.

Is there a way to temporarily disable a module?



  • Hi @sdetweil,

    That’s great! Any chance you could point me in the direction of some instructions?

    Cheers

  • @BigDanT I had to change code in both modules…

    someone else @wishmaster270 says if you use THIS module, then you can configure what you want, no coding changes…

    I don’t know anything about that module



  • @wishmaster270 this looks great !!!

    I’m going to start to tinker tonight with the PIR thats just arrived.

    I dont suppose you have an example config file you could share that shows how you set-up profiles across the other modules ??

    Cheers

    @BigDanT Hi, sorry but I don’t use the modules in exact this configuration so I do not have a config that contains all parts. But I included an example folder to my GPIO module which contains instructions of how to setup an PIR. Maybe it is a good start: examples



  • @wishmaster270 Thanks for the link.

    Using your instructions ive gotten the PIR up and running using your example config’s.

    It would be ace to see how you have set-up profiles across a number of modules (doesnt matter which one) and how they are switched using MMM-Screen-Powersave-Notification ??

    I understand the principles but cant for the life of me find ANY examples of how this is set-up in the config file to experiment with.

    Any help/exmaples would be great ?

    Thanks

    D.

    I’ve had a crack at writing an example config file to show you what im trying to do:-

    I’ve taken out anything that is sensitive.

    In short i want it to show every module, unless the PIR detects motion then it will disable the “Digital-Pictureframe” profile.

    I assume if you use “classes” thats a profile ? and if it doesnt have a “classes” set then its considered default.

    var config = {
        address: '0.0.0.0',
        electronOptions: {},

    I just need to understand how to add a module to a profile and then using your example PIR code how to transition from one profile to another


  • Module Developer

    @BigDanT
    Hi,

    you need another module to get it work: MMM-ProfileSwitcher

    The idea is to define a “normal” class to which all modules do belong that will be displayed if motion is detected. The Slideshow will be in class “slideshow”.
    The Screensave module is configured to not shutoff the monitor but change to the “slideshow” profile.
    If SCREEN_ON is triggered the Screensave module will change back to the profile that was used before the screensave (in our case “nomal”).

    I updated the config example to do the job (but i could not test it at the moment):

    var config = {
        address: '0.0.0.0',
        electronOptions: {},
        ipWhitelist: [],
        modules: [
    
            //Screen on & off timer{
            {
                module: 'MMM-ModuleScheduler',
                config: {
                    notification_schedule: [
                        // TURN THE MONITOR/SCREEN ON AT 07:30 EVERY DAY
                        {
                            notification: 'SCREEN_ON',
                            schedule: '00 07 * * *',
                            payload: {
                                'forced': true
                            }
                        },
                        // TURN THE MONITOR/SCREEN OFF AT 22:30 EVERY DAY
                        {
