lol...alright back to trying to figure this security panel out for me

...a side note while I'm all off-topic...I got the HADesigner running now and have started on your screencasts, haven't gotten too far yet though, but they look promising, well done

While I see both sides to the whole argument I do feel that the noobs deserve some slack (yes, I'm a noob too).  Mainly because while lots of things are documented, most things are not documented fully since there are so many variables to every install, and to be fair making the decision to go with LMCE is a major investment both in time and depending on how far you want to go, money also.  On that note, can we push for stronger moderation of these boards to avoid this kind of thing in the future?  I'd volunteer my time to help with that since there's not much else I am capable of doing at this point, but at least it's something and a positive start.

Installation issues / Re: Vista-15P

Thanks, found it there...never would have thought to look in there.  The bad news is it still doesn't seem to be controlling my panel so I'll have to re-visit this again, but I have another question now that I know where the pin is set.  My panel and I assume many others use different codes to set different modes for example:

1234 - Disarm
1235 - Arm
1236 - Away
1237 - Stay
1238 - Police
1239 - Medical

Is there some method to handle cases like this where I assume I would need to setup multiple pins?

Okay I think I'm starting to get a handle on this stuff, my alarm panel is detected and I figured out how to add the sensors connected to my panel so that part is setup and I think ready to go.  I am stuck on how I change the pin for LMCE security though?  I need to change it to be the same as for my security panel, but I don't see anywhere to do this.

Yeah yeah yeah, lmce is not ready because you guys have heat problems...  ::)

Learn how to build a decent PC, or give it a rest.

Zaerc..  you give it a rest...  it's not a heat issue on mine..  otherwise I would be getting lockups when running xbmc/linux on the same hardware..  opengl 3d rendering for the gui and playing HD videos with no problems..  I'm getting lockups with lmce from sitting cold all night turned off, booting up and not even getting anywhere to generate any heat...

There are odd hardware issues that only relate to lmce even when using supposedly "supported" hardware..  for those of you lucky enough to have picked the "right" hardware and never experience these issue I'm sure it's hard to believe it's a lmce problem...  but it is...  it's too widespread to be denied....

I already gave it a rest, but you fuckups have to keep bringing this stupid thread back up.  And yeah I find it very hard to believe this is a lmce specific problem when only a few individuals are having symptoms that seem similar but probably aren't even related. 

If your system fails during boot, then you obviously have a hardware problem, but instead of asking for help and guidance you people choose to bitch about it in this thread blaming lmce for your own incompetence...

...That was certainly warranted...I guess you didn't get enough attention when you were little or maybe some adult male figure in your life used to play "doctor" with you.  Either way, back off and quit taking it out on the internet...nobody cares...

Installation issues / Vista-15P
« on: July 11, 2008, 05:23:25 pm »
I have a Vista-15P alarm panel with a VistICM adapter installed, I know this device is not on the supported hardware, but I think someone must have written a GSD plug-in for it because I re-ran the setup wizard in LMCE the other day and it automatically detected my Vista-15P panel and added it as a device, but it displayed a message that it was not monitoring any devices or something to that effect.  I'm curious as to what I need to do to complete the setup of this as it is in fact installed and working.  So my question is really when using any type of external panel, what configuration settings need to be done in LMCE to get it fully working?  Mainly what I'm interested in getting done is being able to control the panel from LMCE as if it were one of my security screens I would normally use to arm/disarm, etc. the system.  I also want to get LMCE to see the status of the security panel (ie. armed, disarmed, triggered, etc. so that I can create scenarios as demod in the 704 video).  I hope this makes sense, if anyone can help point me in the right direction I'd greatly appreciate it.

Is there anywhere I can just download HADesigner and whatever else I need to start making a new UI for LMCE?  I'm willing to watch the screencasts and learn, but I don't wanna muck around for two days compiling stuff just to start working and learning.

I got a little further with this last night, but I've got some major issues still rendering the phones unusable through asterisk.  I now have two extensions setup, my main LMCE box and my iphone.  I am able to dial out on both lines and when dialing in I have it setup to go to an IVR so the caller can select who they are calling for.  If they select my LMCE box the call will go through as normal, but if they select the iphone they get a busy tone.  I watched the debugger and it does appear that asterisk is routing the calls appropriately so I'm a little confused on this one.  The interesting thing is that I am able to dial between the two extensions internally and the calls will go through normally.  When I setup the iphone I did it directly in the freepbx admin pages, do I need to do it through the LMCE admin pages instead?  It's almost like the phone has not registered appropriately.  The other issue I'm having is audio both in and out is sketchy at best, the volume falls out and comes back every second or two and is very low.  I've found some settings to adjust some of these things and I'm thinking I should be looking at zaptel.conf for these settings because it seems like a hardware thing and not a software issue.  Any experienced users have advice on how to troubleshoot this?

Okay, I did some more work with this last night and was finally able to get my card working and I can dial out and receive calls normally now.  I will be doing a write up on how I was able to do this as some things were left out from every tutorial I read so I pieced together some tweaks from various places to get it working.  I do have one small problem though, if I dial *97 to access my voicemail from my LMCE box, I cannot do anything from there because any keypresses once answered don't register.  Am I missing something simple here?  I have the same problem when using my Iphone connected to my asterisk box...

I'm having trouble getting this working I have an X100P card from Digium, but I can't seem to get it working properly.  I am pretty sure I have this thing setup properly and have attempted to follow a dozen tutorials, but none of them seem to be quite the same as what I've got.  I just want to get this thing where it will answer and make calls from just one box for now, but all these tutorials I see are way more complex.  I try to make a call and I get "All circuits are busy now"  I've done some research and it seems this can be caused by an infinite amount of things, can someone please help, I really don't even know where to start explaining where I'm lost at.

I'm not supporting the previous comments by ukstation or whatever his name is, but I would encourage you to step back and read your post before pressing the submit button Zaerc as you have personally attacked me recently and now him in a post.  I do agree with him that the wiki needs work and is atm pretty much unusable for most things I've needed it for.  Belittling the userbase is counter productive to the entire project, you never know who the person on the other end of your post is.  For all you know it could be a developer who does not fully understand the methods used, or more likely a user who once they have something partially working will be showing it off to others, thus increasing the odds a developer will see the results and take an interest.  Take this post as face value, it is what it is, my opinion.  Don't bother slamming me with a response, let it rest here because I will not acknowledge this behavior anymore past this point as it will only encourage it to be drug out.

Surely someone can help, it's listed in the features as an option.  I'm using the standard Digium X100p card

I've been thinking about this and as I said I was not able to make heads or tails of how the current system works, but as far as creating templates, it would be nice if the internal actions of LMCE were all listed in one place that could be referenced by people quickly and easily when creating templates.  Possibly extending and changing the functionality of the templates slightly so that the user can check a box or something to share their custom templates to a central point where other users could then retrieve them thus eliminating the need to have them in the main trunk.  For something like this to work and be efficient I'd imagine the templates would need to be tagged in some structural format like:

Category: (limited to Automation, Security, Media, Phone or something)
Device Model:
Template Name: (500ft. 200MPH name to give an idea what the template does)
Description: detailed description so users can decide if it is what they are looking for

Is there some screencasts for Ruby in the GSD available for the complete Ruby noob like Thom has put together for HADesigner?

As I understand it the actions in LMCE are mapped with numerical ID's which is quite cryptic, I might be missing something, but wouldn't it be easier to have them setup similar to how XBMC is using them in a single table where the actions are created and accessed so they could be accessible in a very streamlined fashion from HADesigner, any custom scripts, and the rest of the source?  I'm sure it's probably not an easy change at this point if it's not handled similarly at all to that method currently, but on the flip side the more the code grows the harder it will be to change later.

Just a few thoughts I had...any input?

You can easily flash a VOIP router, like the ones that Vonage gives away, and use PSTN with LMCE. There is plenty of information in the Asterisk forums on how to do this.

Can you point me in the right direction, I searched "flash router pstn" and could not find anything like that, but it sounds like something good
