Users / Z-wave Ceiling Fan Speed Control
« on: December 30, 2012, 02:51:02 pm »
I was curious if anyone has successfully gotten Fan Speed Control working with Z-wave with an overhead fans. I saw one post on the forum regarding using something like a VRF01-1LZ, they seem to be one of only a few options to control fan speed via Z-wave properly.

Are there any compatibility issues with these and LinuxMCE? Anyone using this now?

Any other thoughts? I’ve got two switches already pre-wired to my overhead fans, so I should be able to control the light and fan separately, just want to control the speed also without burning the fan out with a dimmer.



Users / Conditional Lighting Scenarios,
« on: August 10, 2012, 11:00:16 pm »
Hey, I’ve scanned the forms, and I can’t seem to find anyone trying to make conditional lighting scenarios.

For example, I’d like to be able to make a “Lamp” button on an orbiter, than when pressed would check if the lamp is on, and turn it off it that is the case. If the lamp is already on it should turn it off. I’ve looked into the respond to events scenario’s, to do something like this, but I can figure out a way to make a button on an orbiter trigger the event.

The above is just a simplistic example, of other things I’d like to do. (for example, I’m pretty sure I read I can toggle lights on and off from an orbiter if I have a floor plan, with devices.) My intent isn’t just to be able to toggle a light, but to have orbiter buttons with “if statement” attached, So that given certain criteria, it’ll do different things. So if I hit “lights on” on an orbiter and it is night, I’d like lights to only come up 10%, but if I hit the same button during the day I’d like 100%.

Any thoughts or Ideas would be appreciated.


Installation issues / 810 Final - Email Setup Not Working - HELP!!
« on: June 13, 2012, 07:48:44 pm »

I recently reinstalled my LinuxMCE core, but I can't get the email setup to work no matter what I do. (I want to be able to get my voicemail and alerts sent to my email address like I had setup before)

I've reinstalled 4 times since, and tried everything I could find on this forum and the wiki to try and get email working.

Things I've tried:
Setting up email via web admin, Email Setup -> Gmail -> entered credentials. I usually
get a few screens of text and the last line is a TLS error about the engine not being available when I hit update.

I tried setting my gmail address as "other". It will usually save (without giving me pages of code at the top) but still nothing.

I've tried manually installing Mailx, tried manually running the
I've tried different gmail and hotmail addresses.
(also tried doing each of these in different orders after fresh installs to see if that made a difference)

I don't recall it being this hard to get working the last time. I thought I was using the same ISO file as last time, but i'm not sure. Last time I thought it just worked.

Anyone else seeing this? (it appears from the forum that no one else is having this kind of issue). Can anyone recommend a different snapshot to try? or a solution?



Developers / PlayBook Orbiter?
« on: February 07, 2012, 01:58:09 pm »
Anyone considered building a native PlayBook Orbiter App?

I hear RIM is pretty much giving away PlayBook's these days before the next version comes out. I've also heard rumours of free PlayBooks for developers.

at ~$200 each, they are better orbiters than Cisco 7970s!

Users / BlackBerry Orbiters?
« on: July 02, 2010, 11:18:58 pm »
Hey I'm new to LinuxMCE, starting to get my core working, but I need Orbiters.
Has anyone got BlackBerry's working as Orbiters? If so which models? (which OS’s) and how did you do it? I’d love to use my Storm2 as a touch screen Orbiter.
