Users / Delay Command between ON/OFF in Lighting Scenario
« on: May 04, 2013, 08:45:49 pm »
Hello Everyone,
I am trying to Inject a delay of 10 seconds between a light switch turning ON and then OFF. No matter what value i put in there it seems to be just a second or two. If I press the button in my Lighting scenario, it turns ON the switch and in the second or so it turns it OFF. I have attached a screenshot of my scenario. Any thoughts would be appreciated


Users / Asterisk + 10.04 + Dahdi + TDM800p
« on: September 02, 2012, 07:36:09 pm »
Hello Everyone,
Based on the forums I gather the asterisk files are in a database and there is no FreePBX. I was hoping to try my TDM800p card which has 4 FXO and 4 FXS ports.

I went and installed dahdi drivers and it seems to recognize my card. It also generated the config files under /etc/dahdi. Following are my questions:

1. Do the files in /etc/dahdi need to be in the database
2. module show does not show the dahdi module loaded (after reboots). I have unchecked it in /etc/asterisk/modules.conf. Should it show up?

Following are some outputs:
home@dcerouter:~$ dmesg |grep dahdi
[   19.512668] dahdi: Telephony Interface Registered on major 196
[   19.512670] dahdi: Version: 2.2.1
[   24.842523] dahdi: Registered tone zone 0 (United States / North America)

home@dcerouter:~$ lsmod
wctdm24xxp             63965  0
dahdi_voicebus         37065  1 wctdm24xxp
dahdi                 196138  4 wctdm24xxp,dahdi_voicebus
crc_ccitt               1339  1 dahdi

home@dcerouter:~$ sudo dahdi_scan
description=Wildcard TDM800P Board 1
devicetype=Wildcard TDM800P
location=PCI Bus 16 Slot 10

I do have a phone line plugged in to Port 5.

I think I can figure out the configuration for Dahdi (thanks to google) but I wanted to know how the database part plays in with dahdi and what i need to do. Also I installed phpmyadmin and was not able to get to it via

Thanks in advance!!

Hello Everyone,
I have an Insteon PLM and light dimmer successfully installed and functioning. Decided to get a Skylink Insteon Motion Sensor (2420M) in the mix. Followed the manual to ensure it is software controllable and linked to the PLM.

Was hoping it would get automatically detected. Since it was not detected, i added a "Motion Sensor" template manually and gave the Insteon address (14.BC.30) in the "Port/Channel Number" field. In the PLM logs i can see the address of sensor show up. On tripping the sensor there are a bunch of logs that scroll by.

On the core's on screen orbiter, under Pending Tasks i can see its downloading "General Info Plugin". After router reload the devices seems deleted from the core.

Any thoughts on this behavior? I did see a post from 2009 but there was no resolution mentioned other than contacting someone. I am attaching the PLM logs. Sensor address is 14.BC.30. Unfortunately I am not conversant with the reading the logs, hopefully will pick it up soon.

Users / 8.10 + SqueezeBox + Cant play audio via LMCE
« on: April 15, 2012, 02:54:41 am »
Just received my new squeezebox yesterday and follow the instructions on the wiki to set it up (pretty much plug and play). The core configured it as soon as the box booted up (over Ethernet). I mapped it to the kitchen. From my core on-screen orbiter, choose kitchen-->audio-->selected music. There was no audio :(. Since my audio is on the NAS, i moved over a file to /home/public/data/audio/. Still no luck.

Under the Device Tree I see Slim Server Streamer (Registered). Under that i see SqueezeBox Player (it sure is mapped to the kitchen)

Navigated to Advanced-->Configuration-->SqueezeBox Server, it only shows Loading SqueezeBox Server. Navigated to and the UI did show up. I could play music on the box from /home/public/data/audio/. In the settings-->Information tab i do see the following:
Player Model: Squeezebox Radio
Firmware: 7.6.1-r9482
Player IP Address:
Player MAC Address: xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx

So it seems the Squeezebox is connected and can be controlled by the server. But not sure why i cant play music via the orbiter.

Users / Asterisk + TDM800p + 8.10 configuration
« on: April 13, 2012, 02:48:36 am »
Hello Everyone,
I have a TDM800p card from Digium. It has 4 FXO and 4 FXS ports on it. I have installed the card in my 8.10 core. Per the vendor documentation i need to give it additional power from the PC if using FXS. Currently i am not using FXS and hence i have not given it any power.

The card shows up on the FreePBX GUI. I have set the dialplans etc based on some Internet search. Rebooted my core as well. Whenever i try making calls from the core, depending on the dialplan, i get "All circuits are busy" or "Call cannot be completed". The phone line is directly connected to port 8 of my TDM card. Per the card manual all FXO ports are port numbers 5-8 in my case. I have verified the line works with an analog phone.

Has anyone used or installed this card before? Any thoughts or pointers will be appreciated. Thanks!

Users / Z-Wave Compatible Yale Locks
« on: March 26, 2012, 08:55:35 am »
Hello Everyone,
I am new to this forum and linuxmce. Have spent the last month getting my feet wet with the system and I am absolutely loving it. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this project. I have my core as well as diskless MD running with the fancy Follow-me media features. Also the Insteon PLM and Lamplinc were plug-n-play. I am now looking for locks. Did some research and did not find any concrete information. Following are some options:
1. MorningLinc Insteon controller with Morning Industry Deadbolt locks
2. Hari did mention the use of some cool RFID tag setup
3. Z-wave related locks (which apparently are not supported due to encryption)

I am a bit curious of the last option. Using an Aeon Labs USB Z-Stick and the Yale Locks (wwwDOTyaleresidentialDOTcom/en/yale/yale-USA/Real-Living/product-details/Keypad/touchscreen/) would it not be possible to manage the lock? Since the Stick has an inclusion controller, would it not take care of the encyption and LinuxMCE control the stick? Apologies for the lack of my understanding on the topic.

Are there any other solutions for locks with LinucMCE?

One last question, Insteon and Z-wave use different frequencies, but can there be any issues using the Insteon PLM and Z-Wave USB Stick on the same core?

Thanks in advance!
