IoT Input

Beta License: AGPL-3 OCA/iot Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runbot

This addon allows to use a device in order to input data to odoo automatically.

It opens a URL that a device can use to connect (with a password) that can only execute an specific action.

Inputs are useful when a device wants to communicate to odoo for a single and simple action. This way, the device does not need to be configured with a odoo user and password, it is handled by odoo devices.

Examples:

  • Sending the temperature every three minutes.
  • Sending the RFID that the device has received in order to perform some action

Usage

There are two endpoints you can use: Endpoint 1: /iot/<serial>/action

Takes application/x-www-form-urlencoded parameters: passphase, value (where value is a JSON object)

  1. Create a Device on IoT > Config Devices
  2. Access the Inputs section of the device
  3. Create an input. You must define a serial, passphrase, function and model

The function that the system will call must be of the following kind:

@api.model
    def call_function(self, key):
    return {}

Where key is the input string send by the device and the result must be a dictionary that will be responded to the device as a JSON.

Endpoint 2: /iot/<device_identification>/multi_input It can be used to send values with multiple data in one POST request such as: - Values for inputs of the same device with different address (multi input) - Values for inputs of the same device with same address, different values (multi event) - Mix of the above (multi input, multi event)

Takes application/x-www-form-urlencoded parameters: passphase, values (a JSON array of JSON objects)

It is called using device_identification and passing two POST parameters: device passphrase and a JSON string containing an array of values for input - The value for the address key can be a string or a numeric (to conserve bytes in memory restricted devices when creating the JSON object) and is converted to string when parsing. - The value for the value key can either be string, number or boolean according to JSON specs. You can see an example of a valid JSON input object in the examples folder, using a few combinations.

It requires the function that the system will call must be of the following kind:

@api.model
    def call_function(self, key):
    'do something
    if err:
        return {'status': 'error', 'message': 'The error message you want to send to the device'}
    return {'status': 'ok', 'message': 'Optional success message'}

Where key is a dict send by the device having at least value for keys: 'address', 'value'

The function must always return a JSON with status and message. If value contains a value with 'uuid' as key, it is returned along with the object for the IoT device to identify success/failure per record.

It has full error reporting and the return value is a JSON array of dicts containing at least status and message. Error message respose is at some points generic, though extended logging is done in Odoo server logs.
