Users / [SOLVED] Events: Stop ringing extension
« on: August 20, 2012, 08:29:49 pm »
I'm trying to create an event that allows me to ring all phones once somebody is at the front door.

I can get it to ring, but i just want it to ring 2~3 times. Any idea how i can do that?
Is there somewhere an (detailled) explanation of the different options?
For example what can i do with the strings?  :-\

My (failed) test:
  • Respond to Event
  • What device?: doorbell
  • Commands:
  •      Asterisk PBX_Application: Extension 206 (fe)
  •      LinuxMCE Delay: 4
  •      Asterisk PBX_Hangup: noidea (extension?)

Installation issues / Can't change security devices anymore
« on: August 20, 2012, 08:46:32 am »

I was adding manual my light buttons in the security part. I'm using the template 1624 (doorbell) for this. Everything went well from device 241 till 297.

When i add a template afterwards, it's been added.
But when i change the name and assign a port channel, it isn't been updated anymore.
I even can't delete the device anymore?
I can still add devices.
I've got 298 ~ 310 'empty' devices now.

Other devices (fe light switches) can be updated.
But none of the security devices... Even the IPcamera's in here can't be updated anymore?

Any idea what's going on? What i can do to solve this?

Restart / reboot of LinuxMCE didn't bring a solution...  :-X

Users / Bulk import
« on: August 14, 2012, 08:03:44 am »
I'm having a lot of switches in my home (light bulb, power outlets, switches...). And of course, i can add them one by one. But this would take hours. So I'm wondering if there isn't a way to import them in bulk into linuxmce.

Can i insert them 'simply' in the database from fe a csv? Or are their different places that are impacted?  ???

An example of a csv could be:
Light kitchen37EIBDKitchen1/1/1|1/2/1
Light bedroom37EIBDBedroom1/1/3|1/2/2
Light office37EIBDOffice1/1/3|1/2/3
Lightswitch kitchen 1x1624EIBDKitchen2/1/1
Lightswitch kitchen 2x1624EIBDKitchen2/1/2
Lightswitch kitchen 3x1624EIBDKitchen2/1/3
Lightswitch kitchen 4x1624EIBDKitchen2/1/4
Lightswitch bedroom 1x1624EIBDBedroom2/1/5

Users / House down / up...
« on: August 13, 2012, 08:33:22 pm »

I'm able to control my 'eib buttons' with the template doorbell.
I can finally switch on a light bulb through LinuxMCE. Cool.

I now want take it to the next level.
When i push 3x the button on my backdoor, i want to shutdown everything (lights, outlets...).
When i push the button 3x again, i want to powerup everything (lights, outlets...).

What do i use for this? A kind of 'respond to events' and select all switches?
Or should i use a kind of 'away' status?

Wiki / Contact writer(s)
« on: August 13, 2012, 03:40:21 pm »

It would be maybe nice if we can contact the (original) author of a manual.

Fe i'm trying out the EIB module for the moment. I see that the person who wrote this, tried the 'input' module. But i can't get it working. So i would like to send him a small message to have additional info. Of course, i could use the forum, but maybe it's interesting to send a link of the topic to the original author as well?

Or am i looking wrong...

Users / # Images for a room limited?
« on: August 02, 2012, 02:53:55 pm »

Is there somewhere a limit to the number of rooms/images?

i'm having about 25 rooms.
And for about 15 rooms i want to add an image.

For 12 rooms, it worked. But suddently, i can't add images to it?
  • I thought there was something wrong with those images, so i re-used a 'working' image. No luck.
  • Maybe something wrong with those rooms? So i create an extra one, no luck.

Any idea why i can't upload any (room)images anymore?

Users / Change a template
« on: July 31, 2012, 02:26:37 pm »

Today, i've created my EIB connection through the old fashion way (install by console bladibladibla...).
Now i seen that Foxi352 wrote a EIBD wikiwhere EIB is integrated in version 10.04.

My question now is, can i change the template of my current EIB?

This without loosing all child device for this?
Since i've got about 60 switches and so, it would be nice that i don't have to recreate them all... ;)

Users / [SOLVED] Prefix, dialplan in 1004
« on: July 31, 2012, 10:23:24 am »

Is there a way to update/change the dialplan under LinuxMCE 1004?
I would like to control/limit my outgoing calls to only national ones.

So i need something in the form of:
  • fixed number: 01 234 56 78
  • cell phones: 0123 45 67 89

And since its a small home, an outgoing prefix is also a bit 'much'... ;)

Installation issues / [SOLVED] IP Camera in 1004
« on: July 25, 2012, 09:34:30 am »

I've got some IPCAM02 running, and i want them to add in LinuxMCE.
But don't succeed to it. :$

I've tried adding them 'surveillance camera' as a 'generic motion ip camera - 1916' and as an 'advanced IP camera'. But couldn't get a image running.
Does anybody has an example what i need to add?
Fe i'm adding the IP, the MAC, the username (admin) and password.

Next to it, i found in that you also could motion wrapper.
But couldn't find this in 1004.
Is it still in there, another location...?

ps a manual for the IPCAM is located here:


Installation issues / [solved] 10.04 / asterisk / creating phones
« on: July 24, 2012, 03:30:56 pm »

I'm trying to install some phones in 10.04. I've got a bunch of cisco 7940 & 7960 phones that have SIP installed on.
In LMCE, i go to 'Wizard'  > 'devices' > 'phones'.

I add following information for the first phone
  • Phonename: office
  • Location: office
  • sip password: sip
  • IP adress:
  • MAC: 11:22:33:44:55:66
The phone is properly configured.
A SIP112233445566.cnf is created.

Now i'm adding a second phone:
  • Phonename: bedroom
  • Location: bedroom
  • sip password: sip
  • IP adress:
  • MAC: 11:22:33:44:55:77

When i now check the tftpboot folder, a SIP112233445577 is created.
But the webpage seems to keep refreshing?  >:(

Next i'm checking with the command top in a console. And i see that some scripts keep returning. They disapperar, coming back...
  • db_phone_config
  • configure_cisco

And the files in the folder tftpboot are recreating the whole time?

Any idea what's going on?
Not sure what to do (beside rebooting the server)... ???

Help Wanted / Q24U IP Camera
« on: July 02, 2012, 12:30:29 pm »
Does anybody has experience with the Q24U IP Camera?
I can buy some camera's for 60 euro's / piece. But of course, they should work with linuxmce... ;)

Users / Respond to events (howto?)
« on: April 15, 2012, 05:05:39 pm »

It's been a while since i tried to configure my linuxmce more in detail.
I can control all lights with my server. So this part is covered (output relays).
Next step is my lightbuttons in house. But for this, i don't know how i can see if linuxmce is picking up the signal from the button. I'm playing around with 'respond to events', but i've got the feeling that this isn't working as it should be. Do you need to do something special for the events? Is there anything where i need to pay attention to?

I've tried following 4 scenario's:

Scenario 1:
   Event: A sensor is tripped
   What device: Button 0/0/35
   What time of day: DAY
   Trigger: Tripped = 1
   Command: lighting wizard: Light 0/2/15 ON

Scenario 2:
   Event: Someone rings the doorbell
   What device: Button 0/0/35
   Command: lighting wizard: Light 0/2/15 ON

Scenario 3: Test Phone (ip phones are working perfectly with the system)
   Event: there's an incoming call
   Which phone: PhoneA
   What time of day: DAY
   Command: lighting wizard: Light 0/2/15 ON

Scenario 4: Test DeviceOn
   Event: A device is turned on
   What device: Light 0/2/15
   Event ON/OFF = 1
   Command: lighting wizard: light 0/2/16 & 0/2/17 ON

ps with a command line, i can activate 0/2/15 in the correct way. So my interconnection between the server and my domotica (eib) is working...

Users / 'Blank' passwords
« on: February 23, 2012, 10:31:06 am »

I searched a bit, but couldn't find a straight answer.
How (and what's the risk) to change the default 'blank' password?

The database user is using a blank password, as well as the asterisk admin.
Can i just change this password? Or will it have impact on other stuff as well?

I was thinking about changing:
  • mysql user root
  • /etc/pluto.conf
  • asterisk admin user
  • ...

Reason for all this is that of course it's not very secure to use 'blank' password. And lately, a lot of software don't allow 'blank' passwords (fe phpmyadmin) by default...

Users / [Solved] Shares (backdoor access?)
« on: February 17, 2012, 10:51:46 am »

I've got some users configured in linuxmce.
When somebody access now the server from a windows 7 client, he sees following in the network neighbour:

  • User1
  • User2
  • Public
  • Home

When he's user1, he has access to User1 and Public, but not to User2. Nice, like it should be.
But he can open Home, and open in there User2. So not nice...

Any idea what i'm doing wrong?


Installation issues / Some calls are being made
« on: February 17, 2012, 10:41:59 am »

I'm playing around with some phone & linuxMCE. At first sight, very simple (once you figure out how to put your cisco phone on SIP), and it works perfectly.
Internally, i can do some calls, to the external world it works... I've request and external number now, so waiting delivery to test incoming calls...

But when i look in my logs, from time to time, some strange entries. I'm wondering who is answering this.
  • The phone calls don't make it to the outside world (000xxxx). My provider logs stay empty....
  • And the calls from 101 to 101? I don't have an extension 101...
Do i need to worry about something or is this normal behaviour?
