Developers / Do we have simple ON/OFF device for floorplan ?
« on: August 29, 2007, 09:58:38 am »
Hi,

I know for existence of light switch (on/off) but on floorplan it appears as dimmable switch (although it works properly - if you click on any value other than 0, then it goes to state 1).

Do we currently have any device, that would appear with simple on/off on floorplan ? (thermostat gives more controls:fan on, fan off, +, -,...).

Thanks in advance,

regards,

Bulek.

Hi,

I'm integrating LMCe with my new demo house and I have all kinds of devices that are not lights and don't have on or off state - blinds, drapes for instance.

Currently one can do simple (but I think still dirty) workaround to add light device (by default are all light devices dimmable), then change its icon to blind and then use it. But the main problem in such setup is that user doesn't have any visual information about device's current state.

Particularly for blinds and drapes (and I think also for dimmable lights) it would be nice to add proper support and display current state on Floorplans if user desires so. For blinds or drapes, we could even have different icons (in 10% steps) so user can get visual feedback.

Anyone looking in this direction ? This enhancement is I guess linked to several changes in major plugins. I think it would be efficient to gather more opinions and do it in group effort manner ?

If we dig into plugins then I guess it would be also wise to consider another more major change - to introduce possibility to user, that with simple tick, device will show it's current state in text (whatever it is) on floorplans and also introduce event like "state changed" that would inform plugins that device's state has changed and needs to be updated on floorplans - if user desired such behaviour for this device. Any opinion on this idea ? It would ease addition of all kinds of custom devices to LMCE...

But since these changes are not so trivial, I'd love to hear opinion from LMCE maintainers as well.... Please take part in this discussion...

Thanks in advance for you opinions ,

Developers / How to change house mode from external systems
« on: July 04, 2007, 11:17:47 pm »
Hi,

I'm thinking about most convenient way of syncing certain kind of informations between LMCE and home automation system I have.

For instance :
- I'd like to set House mode in either system and then propagate new state into another system. For instance, user comes into house and types PIN code on one of LCD keypads of automation system. Now I'd like to put house into Unarmed mode. How can I do this ? Can I send DCE message for this ?

- I have Volume up/down controls on automation keypads and would like to propagate volume changes to LMCE that is playing certain media in that room. How to do that ?  Can I get information for instance of current volume level from DCERouter or any other SW device ? How to ?
How can I change volume of MD from external devices - possible with DCE messages ?

- I'd also be happy to discuss with other users about possible solutions, cause together we can certainly get to better solutions....

Regards,

Bulek.

Developers / How to contribute templates and GSD code for few devices
« on: June 20, 2007, 09:30:30 pm »
Hi,

I have contributed and created few templates for Plutohome (Marantz SR5600 Receiver, Cybrotech Home Automation system, etc....).

Since they are in kind of "prerelease state", changes cannot get into their database. But since I use LMCE also in my new house, I'd kindly ask for some guidance how to send contributions to LMCE database, so I can use devices I created also on other fresh installs ?

Thanks in advance,

regards,
Bulek.

Installation issues / Can Pluto and LMCE Orbiters coexist on WinXP ?
« on: June 19, 2007, 09:13:17 pm »
Hi,

I have one Pluto and one LMCE system, but I can't run Orbiters for both systems on my laptop with win xp.

if I try to install LMCE Orbiter it complains that it is already installed, if I run Pluto's Orbiter with LMCE ID and IP, it just freezes for infinite time.

Anyone with more success ?

Regards,

Rob.

Hi,

I'll have hybrid LMCE in my new house and would like to solve basic media needs with one hybrid system. I'd like to run one Orbiter with UI2 and show it on TV and would also like to run another X session with Orbiter and UI1 that would be shown on house's main touchscreen, from where user would only control devices - no multimedia necessary...

Any hint how this could be done ?


Regards,

Bulek.
