Kaempy, Welcome!

It's nice to se *someone* taking interest from fiire.

Please visit us often the more communication we have with each other, the better the project, and (hopefully) the better your sales!

I really wish you had read my thread on the fiire Station 1"..

I have all but given up on Fiire, I bought a Fiire Engine, a Fiire 1", and a Fiire 2.2".  The 1" would overheat at the default 1500Mhz, and I had to slow it down to 1400 to stop it from going thermal.

The 2.2" had a bad fan from the get go.

Also, considering the amount they actually talk to us, the community, it's a pretty safe bet they don't care.

I have been in communication with them for almost a year now, and STILL can't get anything from them.  I'm an active developer for this system, yet they don't seem to care.

My recommendation is, and has always been, STAY AWAY FROM FIIRE STATIONS, PERIOD.

Until someone does a review of their new gear, but that someone won't be me.

I also did an extensive thread on the Fiire Engine, complete with part numbers, and a breakdown of the so called invoice..

I hate to say it, but either we told you so, or you didn't do enough research.  There are all kinds of threads here with reasons to STAY AWAY from Fiire equipment.

Their Customer Service is pityfull at best, I'm still waiting for feedback from them.

See if you can return the Fiire Stations, you might be able to.

Good luck, I've been in your boat.

All the best,

Mail Server!?!? How old school!

It doesn't send via a mail server, it sends to your cellphone via WAP/GPRS.
In WebAdmin, Advanced (at the top), Network, WAP/GPRS Settings.
You should be able to follow the instructions from there.

Yes.  That is a standard scenario.

Thorsten, this thread is VERY OLD,
this was before 0704.  Maybe start a new thread with your problem, as this is unrelated.
(look at the dates)

Long and short of it, Yes, it has been brought up MANY MANY times.

The original source from Pluto was debian based, but had a very customized kernel.
It took Paul Webber 2 years to port that version to kubuntu... which is also debian based.

If you want to attempt it, we'll help you out where we can.  Be aware the code base is *HUGE*.

Who ever said programming was convenient?!?

I wrapped my brain HARD around this problem..  I know of no other way to SET a device's STATE.

Developers / Re: Lets Discuss UpdateEntArea changes/additions

I agree. 

I think the key here is to define the INPUT states and OUTPUT states of the 'finite' machine.
we'd need to set up a table of "State Rules".

It's going to be a bit tricky with the INPUT states, there's a lot of them!
and just as many output states too..

Checkboxes, I disagree with, becuase they inherently mean ==, we should also be able to select criteria that is < or >, !=, etc.

Calculated INPUT states are also something that needs to be looked at.. ie
every 3rd day, if it has not rained, turn on sprinker Program 1

Calculated state would be every 3rd day, input state would be NOT rained, output state would be a cmd to sprinklers

make sense?

BTW, simplehomenet also makes Insteon devices.  I don't know why people think Smarthome is the only maker of insteon..

Simplehomenet makes all different kinds of devices for Insteon.

REREAD my last message.

my device = 50
to set state to "ON"
cmd =,50,1,1,192) # 192 = ON
cmd.params[120]="1" # retransmit

to set my devices state to 50%:
cmd =,50,1, 1,76, 184) #184 = SetLevel
cmd.params[76] = "50" #State to be set
cmd.params[120]="1" #retransmit

now in your Process Recieve Command for Child:
if = cmd.from
  #ignore this command

That will set your state.
My underscore key is broken, so I didn't add those.
Take a look at my Insteon code for more examples.

I learned this the hard way...

Currently, you can't set the state information via an event.. (with the exception of on/off)
even then, it's a bit confusing..

Here's how I worked around it:

Send a COMMAND message (not an event message) to MYSELF, with the appropriate cmd to set the state info I want,
then, IGNORE messages where from=to.

Oh yeah, and also, don't forget to set the devdata[120] = 1 before you send the command...

That is today, yes.  As new models come out, more support for JSR082 will be added.  Even RIM supports it now.

Users / Re: HP Proliant ML115 - is this powerful enough for a CORE?
« on: June 15, 2008, 12:00:41 am »
That should be plenty for a core, but you will want to add an extra NIC before you install lmce.
That box is designed as a server, so it will easily handle the core.. BUT:
Server's are not known for having good video cards, consider adding a nvidea if you intend to use UI/2, or stick with ui/1.. (on the server)



Installation issues / Re: Apt install ?
« on: June 07, 2008, 01:35:38 pm »

What you are trying to do is actually a goal of ours, however we are still far from reaching that goal..

The CD install does exactly that, and goes through systematically and solves dependancy hell.
That is why the CD install takes 3 times longer than the DVD install..
the DVD install, while erasing your entire drive, extracts  a 'base' configuration directly to the drive with all the configuration done prior to the copy.
