OK, i'll put it in there then....

Maybe for a future release this name (lighting section) can/should change?
Since home automation doesn't end with the lights (any more)...  ::)

I am going to have a think about how to reorganise the main page from the point of view of the new user, it could be a bit more logical I guess.


Hey Matt,

You've answered this to soon. I wanted to suggest just the same thing. Let us rebuild the whole manual stuff.
A nice startpage with different sectors (global idea, hardware, installation guides, electrical part, telephone part, media...).

The problem today i see is:
- some people speak computer languages
- some people are using for years linuxmce
- some people only want the media part, others the domotica
- nobody (this is for all IT people!) wants to write manuals
- ...
LinuxMCE is to big to explain on one A4 page (Why doesn't this sound the same on a computer?).


I've had (got) the same frustrations like many of us, new users.
I installed it several time (1 year ago i gave up). And i came back. Because i believe in the general idea of linuxmce. Mainly because today, you don't have a proper (cheap) domoticaserver. One of the reasons that the house automation doesn't come up?
Now, it's very hard to see the red line between it all.
For the moment, I finally managed to install the software on my server. I finally managed to get a light on/off. Next is an orbiter. After that some ip phones... Still need to figure out how i can add my power outlets, my playstation, how to use the orbiters...
And the hours i put in it, just to get a light bulb on... It's a bit...


A long the way, i try to write it down in steps that i can remember. Of course, this is again for me. Because i use it as such.


I think we should create a nice folder structure, with in there manuals, forum topics, the wiki pages, the faqs...
Let me know if we want to start a work group or something for this! I'm in....


ps i've got the same feeling with the forum. I think that this can also use some more detailed subgroups... :-X
Maybe a subgroup for discussions about documentation? ;)

Feature requests & roadmap / Power outlets
« on: August 23, 2011, 05:47:34 pm »
Hey,

I can find in linuxMCE a place where i can put all my lights.
But is there a specific place to add my 'power outlets'?

In my situation, i've put all my outlets behind a relay. The idea behind this is to safe power. Fe
  • when you leave your home for work, you can shut down all electric equipment.
  • when you go to sleep, shut everything, except your washing machine and so
  • You can control your fish tank (lights longer on sunday and so)...
So i want to create some scenario's where i can shut down my house with a specific button, from remote...
Is the idea that i put this is a light, or am i missing something?

Thanks!

IF you have a status link.

I suppose this is hardware related?
Or does a normal 'output relay module' also provide this kind of info (fe the Gira 103800: sch.jaloeizactor 16v/8V 16A KNX)?

So if i understand it well, i simply create 2 groups 0/0/1 and 0/0/2 in fe ETS, with each time the same relay in?

This isn't really necessary.  :-[
Don't ask me why, but it works when you only put in 0/0/1...

Installation issues / Re: KNX IP ROUTER 750
« on: August 23, 2011, 03:09:34 pm »
The problem was my EIB interface apperantly.

When i:
- removed this one
- reloaded router
- recreated it (interface > EIB interface > advance ip 127.0.0.1)
- reloaded router
- put a light switch in (controlled by EIB) > only one group address (fe 0/0/3)
- reloaded router

And YEZZZZZ, light are on/off by the test buttons...


ps i'm going to write my installation steps down as clean as possible, I'll post them shortly...

Hey,

I'm back. And a bit closer to the solution.

With the help of Martin and the forum of KNX Germany, i've learned that there's a difference between groupwrite and groupswrite (bin and hex).
And when i run in a terminal "groupswrite ip:127.0.0.1 1/1/212 1", the lights are turned on.
And with "groupswrite ip:127.0.0.1 1/1/212 0", the lights are turned out.

When i now add this 1/1/212 into the template, it doesn't work.

Can this have something to do with the groupwrite / groupswrite difference?

When i tried the groupwrite command, i see a lot of things happening in the debug, but no lights going on.
  groupwrite ip:192.168.111.1 0/0/3 1
  groupwrite ip:192.168.111.1 0/0/3 1 1
  groupwrite ip:192.168.111.1 1/1/212 1   (this is the group i see in the output when i push a button).

When i check the output, i see it coming from 0.0.0.
Don't i need to configure this somewhere in ETS so that the domotica is listening to it?
I check if i could create a 'dummy' input in ETS, but could'nt find anything about this.

Ps, i must use the real ip instead of the local one. Don't think that this is important, but maybe nice to know...

where 0/0/x and 0/0/y_state are light group address and state light group address.

I think that this is my problem.   :P
What's the difference between the 'light group address' and the 'state light group address'?

In ETS, i've configured a group 0/0/1 where i've put my output relay in.
So i suppose that this is my 'light group address'?

Where/how do you configure the 'state light group address'?  ::)

Good news? Seems that the connection between the eibd and the hardware is working. When i push a (domotica)button, the debug (=linuxmce server with eibd) is receiving info:

When i put now 1/1/212 as a port/channel number, it doens't work.
So I suppose it's something wrong with the template?

Thanks...
Doesn't seem to help me out.  :-X

Is there a commando i can try on the console to check the proper working between the server and the light relay? This way, i can narrow it down a bit...

Does anybody knows if something must be set in the 'IP router' itself in order to receive the commands?
I'm a bit afraid to change things on there. Don't want to mess up that thing, it's expensive enough...

Hey,

I can confirm, now the link is working.
And it seems that this does something more... I got some output when i now push button. More then he did before.
Now figuring out what i'm doing wrong.

Through a console, i run:   /usr/bin/eibd -D -T -R -S -i -u -t1023 ipt:192.168.111.21

By the webinterface (lights)

When i tried to activate (ON) the light:
