It's interesting.

Please add wiki page about it...

Users / Re: Can Not gain Access To FreePBX Setup
« on: September 11, 2012, 12:58:29 pm »
Hi,

amphibian: I'd love to read more info about your setup.It sounds interesting (not for casual LMCE use, but for others) and would love to read about it...

Also, I'm using extensively FreePBX (have more incoming trunks: VOIP provider that is not supported under LMCE over dedicated network card, VOIP provider over Internet, Sipura 3000 as GSM gateway, Sipura 2000 as doorphone, POTS gateway, then more outgoing trunks : VOIP provider 1 and 2, Sipura 3000 for GSM calls... So far I'm lucky that Dianemo still has Freepbx, so I can continue using it... I also think that call routing for each user is a bit overhead for simple, ordinary use of LMCE. That's why I do this in dirty way - I create additional user HousePhone, reroute incoming calls to this user, and set call routing over web-admin only for this user...

But can understand, that for simplicity, Freepbx has been ruled out...

Regards,

Bulek.

Hmm,

just wanted to enter my usage of LMCE, but more than 3 options are not allowed. I'm using Dianemo for all checks except Gaming and Other. Pretty complex system and perhaps that's the cause that I have to fix things quite often.

Users / Re: Collaborator Wanted: Verbal Announcements
« on: September 06, 2012, 12:46:37 pm »
Hi,

I'm Dianemo user that really wants to get more Audio informations/announcements from my system. Not sure for LMCE, but under Dianemo speech announcement don't work if you're interrupting any other media being played. Weird things happen (mostly media won't continue after announcement, most of the time also announcement is cut off prior its end). I think announcements should be announced by some certain sound (so it can get attention), media faded to silent and back afterwards.... Also currently I'm not sure what happens if several announcements hit the engine at once...


But I guess more proper way wound be to divide into two separate tasks:
1. gathering informations from various sources into LMCE
2. using stored informations in verbal announcements

I'm not developer, so I'm not sure how this can be properly accomplished under LMCE/Dianemo... But I guess TextToSpeech needs some adjustments or bug fixing, and at the same time use of stored data in announcements could be introduced at the same time...

I'm also thinking about making those annoucements a bit more "human" (varying sentences for same bit of information), but yet don't know of any such system that would get announcements  closer to natural language.

HTH,
regards,

Bulek.

Hi,

I've also had similar thoughts and I always set up telephony in my way:

 - I create one "dummy" user called HousePhone and then set all routing magic on that user. Also, when you leave home, you just set HousePhone user to "Away" mode instead of changing mode of all users...

HTH,

Installation issues / Re: Dianemo S - configuring cisco7970
« on: June 17, 2012, 10:45:13 pm »
Hi,

I have 3 Cisco 7970 phones on Dianemo 11.10 via SCCP and they don't work properly. Audio is missing, sometimes one-way, sometimes no audio...

The problem is that SCCP is not yet properly supported on that version of asterisk.

HTH,

Hi,

what is your choice for rs232 controlled switcher ?

I also think that using USB sound cards would simplify your system... I have two channel whole house audio with Marantz receiver...

Thanks,

Hi,

I've upgraded to 11.10 and see that my MD won't power off completely. It stays with command line screen on and says "halted", but doesn't completely poweroff...

Any advice, what to check or fix ? It used to work under 10.10...

Thanks in advance,

Hi,

I'm also taking close look to those tablets... But have bought one about year ago and it wasn't responsive as expected...

Therefore would be more than happy if we exchange our experiences and see if we can find suitable one for good price...

Thanks in advance for any experience,

Users / Re: [Dianemo S] Phone system configuration
« on: April 21, 2012, 07:42:53 pm »
Hi,

I have phone system "kind of working". My major problem is that I use 3 Cisco 7970 phones and chan_sccp_b currently doesn't work for me (only svn version for Asterisk 1.8). Other extensions seems to be working, although have some weird problems (one of the embedded ORbiters looses connections and I get no audio on calls).

But also, phone system still uses Freepbx, but you cannot change anything regarding extensions in Freepbx, cause that causes troubles with Perl scripts - so all extensions are on trivial passwords - not quite secure...

I'm not sure if I can help much, but maybe you can try to post more specific questions.... Basically you have to add extensions through web Admin page, I only use Freepbx to setup some specific things for trunks, incoming calls etc... The rest can then be done on Telephony page on web admin...

Regards,

Bulek.

Hi,

I'd kindly ask if we can start Wiki page. This area also interests me and more documentation is more than welcome.

« on: April 16, 2012, 08:56:42 am »
Hi,

I have it working under Dianemo with whisperer Perl script. But I guess this is not of much help for you....
Selecting all those inputs in template is too much work, Dianemo has a bit easier system, but you have to know more to use it...

Hi,

I'm looking at DCERouter log but just cannot find command that switches Orbiter to "Single Camera View" screen with live picture from certain camera device...

Does anyone know how to do this ?

Thanks in advance,

Hi,

I'm trying to setup speech announcements under Dianemo 11.10 and have problems. I remember from 10.10 and LMCE 7.10 that similar problems were present, perhaps they exist also on recent releases of LMCE.

I have following questions and would be glad to hear your experiences/opinions :


1. It seems that tts wav files are properly generated, but it seems like they are shortened when played as audio... Also if another speech announcement is triggered it overlaps with the first one - it seems like no queue is used here ? I'm not sure, but maybe generation of wav file and play media command are too close in time (?) :

2. I've setup two speech announcements and delay command for DCERouter for 1min in between, but speech commands are send one after another :

3. "Send Audio to Device" command for Text&Speech device has parameters I don't clearly understand :
Quote
# 254 Bypass Event (bool)
# 276 Dont Setup AV (bool)
Anyone knows some more details about this ?



4. When I try to make speech announcement during media play, then things get pretty messy. Audio stops playing, speech announcement is not heard at all, then media continues but media screen gets empty (no files in playlist), media floorplan has some empty colour rectangles and media button shows like nothing is played. Anyone with similar experience ?
It also seems that media is not paused, but after short interval, next song from playlist is played - with not enough time to play announcement:

40 ms is clearly not enough to play speech announcement.




Thanks in advance,

We have released an update that replaces the Orbiters progress screen with a much improved one;

We replaced the X11 progress screen/bars with SDL progress bars similar to the one you see on startup on UI1 already (as you probably noticed, you don't see it on UI2 - it was disabled in code). Now in UI1 & UI2 we have a single progress screen design that has a much improved visual layout and is based on SDL rather than the old 'bolted' on X11 progress window. These progress windows are displayed by the Orbiter during a regen or a reload router.

More updates on the way... new ZWave binary & a new Dianemo UI Skin...

All the best


Andrew

Hi,

thanks for efforts. If I may add, there are still some things that at least I'd like to have them differently regading UI (I'm using Dianemo (dark) skin) :
1. UI1: Media button that displays current media name is in gray color on virtually black background - and cannot be seen...
2. On interactive floorplans all texts are written in white, so one should have really dark backgrounds to see anything... Any chance to give choice of black or white to user ? I had black colour on 7.10 and visibility was better.
3. I miss more floorplans on UI1 (only 4 currently - there are approx 350 parameters flowing from home automation to Dianemo and I miss more floorplans - there are 8 floorplans on UI2)
4. On UI2 floorplans are still overlapped (this is the same as it was for me on 7.10). That means that when you click on some light on floorplan, you get "fast movie of all floorplans" and then the right one shows....

Hope this helps a bit,

regards,

Bulek.
