The speed of light should not be a problem here, eh...

The speed of light was used as an example to show everything travels at a speed.

As regards to the sync issue you can have the best software out there even the best hardware but remember travel distance I worked in Europe at a club known as Oceana and they wanted multi room sync and we fount out that no matter what hardware or software was used it was always sightly out of sync because of distance, think of how light travels (from the sun to say pluto we see the light on earth first before pluto) same would happen in rooms as cable gets longer or signal from the wireless router get weaker. best choice in connection would be to use optic with the same length and any left over needs to be coiled at the same distance on each cable and that is not perfect.

this is just a basic idea just so i can see some thing working and learn to improve it
If i got Nut to output events to a text file how would i get DCE to receive it, if you do deside to explain it, try a go here click there reproach, (but only if you have the time) i will then see about putting it on the wiki as well.

and yes i can see that i am being a pain in the a*&.

I tried to setup a event in webadmin so at 2300 it would execute a command to ssh over to a PC and shut it down but it never worked, i know to you this would be an easy 30 second task but to others like me its not, yes i looked it up but the screen i look is not like what it shows here and it doesn't even give directions as to hows it is done

OK i get the DCE part and i think it is a great way to handle commands and events i can see how easy it can be to do almost anything.
its like you have a word in your head but you cant say it for some reason that is how i feel i see DCE i see how it works and what it can do in my head but then i look at webadmin and I can configure it, there are so many options and things to configure but no real documentation, if you was to step out of your shoes and step into another persons you would see where i am coming from.

It is excellent piece of software programming, I just need to understand it, I'm not gonna give up

In NUT you have 5 config files
1. /etc/default/nut (this is just to get nut to start, changing two no's to two yes's
2. /etc/nut/ups.conf (this is to tell not what driver to use and port)
3. /etc/nut/upsd.conf (this is to allow network connections to NUT to monitor status and issue commands)
4. /etc/nut/upsd.users (this is to setup usernames and passwords, ie admin and monitor user)
5. /etc/nut/upsmon.conf (this i guess tell Nut what to do on an event)

I you was to issue the command "upsc ups1@localhost" it would print out the complete status of the ups.
Nut will also alert you on a terminal if the status changes ie on battery or battery low, back on ac.
i'm still reading through stuff.
my big problem is it is not easy to understand webadmin in respect of creating a new device like this.

OK i think that may sound more easier I know that NUT can communicate Over the network, I'm guessing that the core could receive that.
so step one would be to install NUT
2. would be to find out how it communicates
3. create a device to receive the communication

Is there any sample devices in DCE i can reference

I have attached one of the driver files i'm looking at for reference could you tell if i'm heading in the right direction, if i'm looking at the right thing for starts

Well i am getting no were fast.
there is no information out there on how to create these sort of drivers its all about AV TV etc, I have fount what i think is the drivers nut uses but I don't know where to start.
I dont even know how the to get the core to know what device i want to talk to and where to find it just to send a simple battery test command or waht i think is a battery test from looking at what i think is the drivers.
